The capacity would jump from 28,500 to 37,000 with three stands redeveloped and, most aspiring of all, there was scope to house 50,000 in future with the Billy Wright stand done too. Stands too far from the pitch and facilities not up to modern standards were driving forces behind Morgan's blueprint. Attendances dropped as low as 15,000 in League One and averaged 22,000 back in the Championship last season – almost 10,000 shy of the capacity.
