I believe it's up to 15% subject to suitable segregation being available :thumbup:

15% would give me half a chance. I love the small grounds. Great places to watch football. And I love sudden death football.

According to the guide to away grounds website that I browse,

Away supporters are housed on one side of the Willbutts Lane Stand, where around 1,500 fans can be housed. If demand requires it, then the whole of this stand can be given to visiting fans increasing the allocation to 3,650


Their average attendance is less than 3000 so even allowing for their less committed fans wanting to go, it seems reasonable to think that they'd allocate the whole stand to us knowing that it will sell out in all probability :thumbup:

Remember in the 70's playing there in the league cup I think, had just passed my driving test and first time I'd been on the motorway.

Now if my memory serves me right we won 3-0 so reckon thats a good omen.

It was pre season 2011/12, season before last and we were in the stand that has a capacity of 3,644.

We've only played Rochdale in cup competitions once in the FA Cup and once in the League cup (2-0 &3-0) winning them both.
More of the same please Brian!

Did they not give us the stand behind the goal to the right of us too for that one? Maybe I'm mixing it up with Burton, where I definitely remember we had two stands, but I vaguely remember Rochdale being largely empty apart from our support. Might be wrong.

I do think it's likely they'll give us the same stand alongside the pitch.

We had the stand down the length of the pitch but I think behind each goal was Rochdale fans. At Burton we did have behind the goal and down the side so I think you have indeed got them mixed up.

East mistake to be fair, similar looking grounds.
