And if City win they will go through the 40 point barrier for the first time in over 50 years* (* equivalent if wins then were worth 3 points )

Stats from today's Echo.

City would have earned the equivalient of 48 points from 23 games in the 1959/60 season under manager Bill Jones if there had been three points for a win.

City went on to get promoted in 1960, the last time they exited this division in an upwards direction.

No City side since then have pulled over 40 points from the opening 23 games of a league season. A win at Watford would take City to 41.
