My SatNav went a bit crazy thanks to changing road layouts around the M62/ M1/ M18 but no real problems. As long as you follow signs for the racecourse, you can’t miss the ground. Parked at the Dome for £2.50, quick getting out, good stuff.

Food & Drink
The refreshments were cheap but I didn’t get any food. Did have a hot chocolate that tasted more like hot water with a Twix dipped in, but it was that cold a night, it hit the spot!

Inside the Ground
The lack of cover around a lot of the ground didn’t help the atmosphere, most of which understandably came from the Popular Side covered terrace. I was on the Town End Terrace, which was uncovered, but the steps were very steep so the view was excellent. Can’t complain really, it didn’t rain. The old Rossington Terrace for away fans behind the opposite goal was uncovered too.
The Popular Terrace
As above, not the greatest, given that the two ends are uncovered, and any atmosphere was completely reliant on the Popular Terrace. Freezing Tuesday night against Colchester? Not the most attractive of fixtures I’d guess so the atmosphere was alright, but not the greatest on my one visit there.
