Another League double completed

It certainly won't be a case of unlucky 13 for Reds later this season, as a trawl through our Football League history showed.


Last Saturday's 1-0 win over Cambridge United, coupled with our 3-0 success at the R Costings Stadium back in August, completed our first League double of the season – and 12th in our five years as a League club.


In 2011-12, when Reds won promotion to League One, we did the double on four clubs – Bradford City, Northampton, Rotherham and Barnet.


The following year we defeated Leyton Orient, Preston and Bury home and away.


In our second season in League One we twice beat Peterborough United and Orient once again.


Last season it was Swindon Town and Barnsley who lost twice to the Reds.


There are eight more opportunities for us to complete another double this season: Stevenage, Orient, Newport County, Luton, Hartlepool, York City, Bristol Rovers and Dagenham & Redbridge.

Who will be our lucky 13th?
