WITH Club captain Russell Martin set to make his 300th appearance, we celebrate his major upcoming milestone in the latest OTBC official matchday programme for City’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Martin is just one game away from the major milestone, so we sat down for an exclusive interview with him, and he reveals his six favourite matches for City and looks back at his time at the Club. We also spoke to Paul Lambert, Chris Hughton and Andrew Crofts to give us an insight into what makes City’s leader tick.
