    Missed Oportunities
    by The Boy Holty (April 9, 2015)


    Easter Monday was 'The day'. It was the day in 2011 when we went to Chesterfield and gloriously won promotion, it was the day in 2012 when I took my two daughters to see us thrash Colchester 4-1 and they loved it, it was the day in 2010 when we ended a ten match run of failing to score from open play by hammering Burton Albion 3-0, it was the day in 1998 when a Nicky Daws goal sealed a win over Bradford and was a massive step towards keeping us in the old first division and it was the day in 1991 when Roger Stanislaus magically arrived at the near post to head a late late winner in a pulsating 2-1 win over Huddersfield. There have no doubt been numerous other fabulous days in the Shakers' history on Easter Mondays but this one, the one just gone, was supposed to be yet another chapter in that story.
    It was supposed to be the day when a comfortable four or five goal victory over one of the worst teams seen at Gigg all season would put us a point behind Wycombe with a game in hand and six to play. It was meant to be the day when that buzzword of the last few weeks 'BELIEVE' came to everyone's lips. We were all hoping it was going to be the day when promotion fell into our own hands and we'd know that six more wins and we're up.
    But we fucked it up.
