The programme took a break during the behind closed doors 2020/21 campaign, but has returned this season with 76 jam-packed pages to keep readers completely informed and entertained.
TVOS starts with a front cover image of midfielder Conor Grant, who scored the equaliser in the recent 1-1 draw at Colchester.
Manager Robbie Stockdale reflects on Tuesday’s game at Forest Green Rovers, while Countdown to Kick-Off looks back to the trip to Harrogate on the opening day of the campaign.
After that we have a host of features, including:
SHIRT NUMBERS, HEAVEN & HELL – A feature looking at players who wore shirt numbers that didn’t suit their position in 2004/05
