From memory, We alighted our coaches in good spirits & we very surprised to be told buy stewards that we shouldn't drink in the Yeovil club bars , for our own safety!. So a large group of us headed off to a recommended pub. Our return to the ground encountered the local welcoming committee , so we were rather pleased that the ground was segregated. We had half the open terrace behind one goal, the rest of the terrace & right round the corner was a sterile area & empty.
The game kicked off with Boro kicking away from us. So many hundreds of home Supporters were moving towards our end. As they started to gather 50 yds from us behind the second fence , Boro scored in the 2nd minute. While we were celebrating a Couple of hundred home fans were through the first fence, the stewards were powerless to stop them at the 2nd one either. Suddenly the away end was less than a 1/4 of the terrace as we were pushed into the corner, strangely the locals seemed more interested in fighting with the stewards & police when they arrived. We had a pretty crap view of the game , but delighted to hold out for the win. In true 80's fashion the away fans were locked in after the match while the locals were ushered away. They were not ushered far , because a few moments later missiles of mud & stones were being thrown over the fence. We were given a full police escort untill the coaches were well outside Yeovil.
