<< Season 1984-85 >>

A strange season in many ways, with 11 away wins and a few promising results, including a 5-2 win at champions Bradford, but poor home form. Trevor Senior missed a vital stage of the season through injury, but still scored 27 goals, ably assisted by Dean Horrix, who scored 20. This included 21 goals between them in a 9 game unbeaten run. Trevor also scored in eight successive league games, equalling the club record, either side of his injury.
