I was wondering the same thing to, I think attendance was clost to 14000 but I have no idea where another 10,000 people would have fit, at a push maybe 2/3 thousand more would I have fit in providing both ends behind the goals were full and no space between people in the seats.

Attendance was 13,943,as far as in aware the capacity is 18000 or 19000,stand holds 5000,open stand i reckon holds about 4000 which would leave 9000 or 10000 for behind the two goals

there is no way the open stand can hold 4000.. you'd struggle to get another 2000 into the ground the other night... I'm saying 15000 is a closer figure.

so in other words we have been struggling for years and years to pay off a ground that only holds 14/15000 though it took 25? years to get a game to fill it and what a disaster parking was and getting out of town later took us 90 min to get 8 miles out of town

Lads the terraces were less than half full. There was a lot of space at either end of both stands too and I was pretty comfortable in my seat. Could have swung a cat in the second row on the 65 nearer to the pineridge goal. It wasn't even 75% full
