IT WAS the biggest crowd for a league game since 11,303 shoe-horned into Griffin Park for the visit of Reading in April 2002 - and the players loved it as much as the fans, writes Yann Tear.
Sam Wood, a newcomer to league football this season, hailed the turnout against Wycombe on Saturday and emphasised the buzz of playing in front of such a crowd.
"I've only been a professional seven or eight months now so and this was one of the best occasions I've experienced." Wood told the Gazette.
"The crowd are a massive help to us. They drive us on, even when we're not playing so well. They keep cheering us on and it gets us through games. They helped us come back to get the draw."
The long-anticipated showdown between League Two's top two drew a crowd of 10,642, which was the best for a regularseason fixture since that famous end-ofseason promotion decider with Reading that ended 1-1.
But the stadium has had a bigger crowd on four other occasions since that game against the Royals. In 2002, 11,191 came to Griffin Park to watch a play-off clash with Huddersfield and a crowd of 10,652 watched the 2006 play-off against Swansea.
There have also been two superior FA Cup attendances - 11,720 for the 2005 replay with Southampton and 11,698 for the famous DJ-Campbell led home win over Sunderland in 2006.
