Ultimately another disappointing season, but the buiding blocks were being put in place

Another disappointing season, the November 1991 appointment of John Ward didn't have the immediate impact that was hoped as City finished 19th (out of 22) and equalled a club record low of just 8 league wins in the season.

Ian Blackstone was Cityís top scorer with 11 goals and Jon McCarthy was voted player of the season.

In the cups, City didnít make much progress, losing to Bolton in the first round of the League Cup and beating Bridlington Town in the FA Cup before a televised drawn game in round 2 against Tranmere, the game being memorable for a stunning long range goal from Wayne Hall. City lost the replay.

With Dean Kiely establishing himself in goal and Jon McCarthy being an ever present, the building blocks were being put in pace. One big question remained. Who would score the goals?
