It’s a family face as we open the year with a trip to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest and the first home tie of the year is Millwall (a double header given we face them in the EFL Cup that week), but in some ways the season doesn’t really get tricky until October where we face Leeds United, Cardiff City and Middlesbrough in quick succession.
