When was the last time we lost our opening two home games?

Back in 1998/99, City started out by losing their first two at home, to Peterborough 3-1 (with Andy Saville netting has last goal as a Bluebird) and to Rotherham 1-0. City would win their third home game, however, beating Plymouth 1-0 on a Paul Wotton own goal, then rattle off seven without defeat, and go on win promotion to the third flight.

City have failed to score in either of their first two home games as well. The last time that occurred was 21 years ago. City drew 0-0 with Rochdale in their first home game of the 1986/87 campaign, then lost to Tranmere 2-0 in their second. City would finish the year 13th in Division Four.

It's been a while since City lost their first two league games at home while failing to score in either. The last time that happened was 39 years ago, City losing to Crystal Palace 4-0 and to Charlton 1-0 in their first two at Ninian Park. The Bluebirds would regroup, however, winning 20 and finishing fifth in Division Two.
