Saturday, 7th September, 1968
Football League
Doncaster Rovers (away),
Lost 1-3

All good things must come to an end, but City really came down to earth with a bump in this game when we were only a pale shadow of the lively com bination which humbled First Division opponents.
Even so we took the lead when Jimmy Blain was quick to take advantage of a bad pass-back to the Doncaster goal keeper, but we never really asserted our selves, and when, in the second half, Rovers' danger man, Alick Jeffery, was allowed more room than he should have been he revelled in his freedom and netted not one or two goals, but three!
Team:
Shearing; Smyth, Balson; Curtis. Harvey, Newman; Corr, Blain, Bullock, Mitten, Pleat.
