The Award for the Best Away Following This Week:

Sheffield United win this week’s award with 2569 fans travelling to the measly hour down the M1 to Bradford. That possibly explains the great showing from Sheff this weekend, which ended in a 2-0 defeat for the away team to the disappointment of Sheffield fans. Of the 18041 fans in attendance, away fans made 14% of the crowd. Nothing spectacular, but should have made for a good atmosphere, even if not balanced.


Shame of the Week:

Although we don’t usually do this, a showing of 70 fans away at Morecambe came as a shock. Despite the 300 mile, 4 and a half hour drive up north, only 70 fans trekked up to make up the 1539 attendance figures. This is an Exeter showing of only 4% of the crowd.
