Sorry- when I said just four to one I meant climbing from level four to level one without any conditions as to how they did it. Reading didn't make it all in one go either - they climbed from four to two and then had a couple of hiccups before winning the Championship for the first time.
Oxford never went direct from 4 to 1, from 1968 to 1976 they were in 2nd Division, relegated at end of 75/6 and stayed in Division Three until 83/4, when they won the division and then the following season won Division Two so were in Division One for 85/6.
Going in reverse they did the same thing, they went down as far as Division Three and then in 1996 came back up to Division Two, before free falling through the divisions
