Leicester’s trip to Torquay carries good omen…

City’s 2012-13 season gets off to something of a false start with a League Cup trip to Torquay United tonight…

The last time City were involved in a League Cup game before the League kicked off was over three decades ago…

In 1979-80 Jock Wallace’s side got off to a stuttering start with defeats in both legs of a first round tie with Rotherham United.
Although Alan Young scored on his full debut for City we lost the first leg at Filbert Street 2-1, and were then well beaten at Millmoor with Rodney Fern coming back to haunt us with a couple of goals in a 3-0 win for the Millers.

However, by the time the league programme began City were more prepared, beating Watford 2-0 at home, with two more goals for Young.
And Jock’s team went on to win the Second Division title that season…
