The latest issue of our official matchday programme features a photo special from City’s win over Ipswich Town.
The cover celebrates Neil Adams’ iconic commentary of “Time’s up! The place is going bananas!” from City’s dramatic injury time win over Derby County in April 2011, while we also celebrate the victory in the East Anglian derby with a photo montage and a special illustration of James Maddison’s winning goal.
Elsewhere we chat to former City winger Lee Croft to get his First, Best, Worst moments, and Chris Goreham remembers that stunning finish against Derby County six years ago.
