The Robins Revival really got into flow in October as they started the month with successive victories, 2-1 at home to Ipswich, and 1-0 at Doncaster, but followed it up with back to back defeats- a last gasp 1-0 loss at Nottingham Forest and a controversial 3-2 home defeat to Bristol City. The cup adventure ended with a 2-0 home defeat to holders and eventual winners Manchester United, but The Reds were left to rue a host of squandered opportunities.
That disappointment was quickly quashed with a vital come from behind win at relegation rivals Peterborough United to end the month. That victory would be the start of an eight match unbeaten run.
