Nottingham Forest playing Leeds United in the third tier of the Football League - would Messrs Clough and Revie ever had believed that would have been possible?

It proved to be a season of mixed fortunes for those two clubs. Forest won automatic promotion but Leeds won enough points to take that second promotion spot from them had they not become the first club to suffer a 15 point deduction for breaking Football League rules on leaving administration without a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA). But although they started the season on -15 points they won their first 7 League matches and were unbeaten in their first 13 to grab a play-off place. But they suffered defeat in the Wembley final against near neighbours Doncaster Rovers.
