Sports visual specialist Ross Halls is back with another look at this week in Town history - and this week includes the last game for a Blues icon.

Ross takes you back to 2003, when Joe Royle's Blues enjoyed a fine 4-1 win over Derby County, a side then caretaker-managed by the man who took Town up to the Premier League just three years earlier, George Burley.

And, in his last game for the club, legendary midfielder Matt Holland got on the scoresheet - fitting indeed!
