Season as it happened - October
October's first game, a 3-2 win at Southend United is followed four days later by a narrow reverse away to Wolves.
Stern John is the star of the show the following Monday as City beat Colchester United 2-1 live on Sky.
The Trinidad & Tobago man scores the first and sets up Michael Doyle for an excellent second.
A section of City's away support chant 'you don't know what you're doing' at boss Micky Adams as he subs Leon McKenzie against Barnsley in City's next away game.
Replacement Wayne Andrews is on the scoresheet immediately, prompting Adams to say after the game: 'If the supporters don't want me at the helm they should just keep singing songs like that because that is the quick way to get rid of managers.
The month ends with a hard-fought game at home to Birmingham City who triumph 1-0 in front of 27,212 at the Ricoh Arena.
