TOWN’S most memorable wins under Lee Clark:
February 14, 2009, Town 1 Leeds 0: Hardly a St Valentine’s Day massacre, but still a sweet win as Nathan Clarke’s goal silences those noisy neighbours in front of a bumper 20,928 Galpharm crowd.
August 18, 2009, Town 7 Brighton 1: Six different players – Kay, Peter Clarke, Lee Novak (penalty), Roberts, Drinkwater and Robinson (2) – make the scoresheet as Albion are ripped apart.
November 2, 2010, Sheffield Wed 0 Town 2: It’s Anthony Pilkington’s night as Town set fire to the rain with a swashbuckling success at soggy Hillsborough. PIlks fires home to add to Graham Carey’s opener.
September 13, 2011, Sheffield Utd 0 Town 3: It seems the steel city suits Town, who show their mettle by blunting the Blades thanks to goals from Lee Novak (2) and Oscar Gobern.
November 19, 2011, Town 2 Notts County 1: Jordan Rhodes is the goal hero once again as his double ensures Town set a new record of 43 Football League games unbeaten.
LAST season’s League I play-off final defeat by Peterborough at Old Trafford ranks as the toughest result for Town to take during Lee Clark’s reign so far.
Most seasons, an 87-point haul would have clinched an automatic promotion berth, but the form of Brighton and Southampton scuppered that route to the Championship.
Town came through a thrilling semi-final second leg against today’s visitors Bournemouth, but were undone by three late Posh goals in the final, a painful scoreline which drives Clark on as he attempts to bring second-tier football back to the Galpharm for the first time since 2001.
LEE CLARK’S first match at the helm was the 2-0 home win over Hereford on December 20, 2008.
Goals from Nathan Clarke and Gary Roberts clinched the three-point haul in front of 13,070.
Clarke netted in the 70th minute, volleying home after Danny Cadamarteri’s effort was cleared off the line.
The second goal arrived seven minutes later, with Roberts playing a neat one-two with substitute Phil Jevons before curling home a shot.
Town’s line-up was Alex Smithies, captain Andy Holdsworth, Robbie Williams, Clarke, Andy Butler, Michael Collins, James Berrett, Jim Goodwin, Ian Craney, Keigan Parker and Roberts.
Cadamarteri, Jevons and Jon Worthington came off the bench.
