The club tells fans: "You’ve probably seen this week that our matchday cuisine has been a hit, and for just £12.99 you can purchase one of our famous Chinese selection boxes, we’d suggest that you arrive early to avoid disappointment."
The food comes in a box bearing the club's crest and has been lauded on Twitter page Footy Scran, a page that boasts over 60,000 followers .
One salivating fan replied to the slap-up meal on Twitter: "I'd miss the match for that!"
