Hello. Today the Football League Show is on the road. Our focus

0:00:220:00:32
0:00:320:00:33

falls on Leagues One and Two. Mr Claridge has gone to find a dark

0:00:330:00:40

room someone to look at the transfer activity.

0:00:400:00:43

I'm at Bramall Lane, where Sheffield United could go to the

0:00:430:00:48

Top of League One with a win against Bury.

0:00:480:00:51

With Charlton not playing until Monday and the MK Dons away at

0:00:510:00:55

Carlisle, Sheffield United knew a win today could take them to the

0:00:550:00:58

top of the pile. The bottom two clashed as

0:00:580:01:01

Chesterfield welcomed Leyton Orient, the only team in the NPower Leagues

0:01:010:01:05

without a point. In League Two, Paolo Di Canio has

0:01:050:01:15
0:01:150:01:15

been in the news this week for all the wrong reasons,.

0:01:150:01:19

So, we'll start here at Bramall Lane where Danny Wilson's team have

0:01:190:01:23

won both their home games. In fact, the Blades are unbeaten in

0:01:230:01:26

the League. They welcome a Bury team who have

0:01:260:01:30

been stronger on the road than at home and who are unbeaten on their

0:01:300:01:37

home and who are unbeaten on their travels so far.

0:01:370:01:42

COMMENTATOR: Good effort and good save from Belford. Another good

0:01:420:01:52
0:01:520:01:54

ball from Quinn. Now Mendez-Laing. Quinton, Sheffield United are at

0:01:540:01:58

head. Chris Porter's second goal in a week. This one comes against a

0:01:580:02:04

club where his career began. Bury looking to try to get back into it

0:02:040:02:14

here. Jones! Not far wide from Mike Jones. Mendez-Laing has caused

0:02:140:02:18

problems this afternoon. Mendez- Laing with a cross. It's gone in.

0:02:180:02:25

What on earth has happened there? An absolute howler from Cameron

0:02:250:02:33

Belford, gift Mendez-Laing his first for the club. Not that they

0:02:330:02:38

are complaining. Sheffield United have been dominant this afternoon,

0:02:380:02:48
0:02:480:03:06

causing Bury all kinds of problems. Lowton makes it 3-0, his second of

0:03:060:03:16
0:03:160:03:18

the campaign. Jones, over the set- piece. Williamson's corner. Belford

0:03:180:03:25

doesn't get there. Here's Erik Tonne, it's four. Excellent finish

0:03:250:03:33

from Erik Tonne. His first League goal for the club, Bury are buried.

0:03:330:03:41

There's the whistle. Sheffield There's the whistle. Sheffield

0:03:410:03:47

United unbeaten start to the season continues. They feel they could

0:03:470:03:51

nick something of the game. If I was in the position of Richie on

0:03:510:03:55

the other side I would have been disappointed to lose it then.

0:03:550:03:59

wins and a a draw, you arrived on the back foot, you are winning them

0:03:590:04:03

over? The players are. Some of the football they played has been

0:04:030:04:07

terrific. Today, more than anything, that is the first time where we

0:04:070:04:10

have been in total command, from our point of view, and played how

0:04:100:04:15

we want to do. Not having to react to the opposition. Some of the good

0:04:150:04:19

football was good. The work ethnic was good for me today. One or two

0:04:190:04:23

teams haven't won a game yet. They haven't played the quality we have

0:04:230:04:27

played. In terms of losing the players. If you are successful,

0:04:270:04:33

people want to buy your players. If we were sitting second from bottom

0:04:330:04:37

no-one would have bought our players. We have to accept we are

0:04:370:04:41

doing something rietion right. We have to accept people will want to

0:04:410:04:46

buy our players. We are doing things right.we will move on. I

0:04:460:04:50

believe and the players believed we could get something, it's not the

0:04:500:04:54

end of the world we haven't. We have to compete with the teams in

0:04:540:04:57

and around us. Well, there were nine other games

0:04:570:05:07

in the NPower League One, so let's in the NPower League One, so let's

0:05:070:05:11

catch up with them. COMMENTATOR: MK Dons deserved their

0:05:110:05:18

spot at the summit of League One. Their football was too strong to

0:05:180:05:22

Carlisle. They failed to clear their lines when they had the

0:05:220:05:27

chance. Porter clipped over the perfect cross for Charlie MacDonald.

0:05:270:05:32

Three goals in as many matches for the new signing from Brentford have

0:05:320:05:38

helped to make up the for the loss of Sam Bullock. When the Dons

0:05:380:05:43

returned from the dressing room they were back in the groove. Adam

0:05:430:05:53

Smith playing in Stephen Gleeson who picked up Dean Bowditch, simple.

0:05:530:06:00

Lee Miller put Carlisle back in contention. It had the fans in full

0:06:000:06:06

voice, a deafening noise, according to Robinson. His players didn't

0:06:060:06:13

stray from the smooth passing philosophy. The Dons aren't short

0:06:130:06:19

of fire power. In the four previous trips away they have racked up 11

0:06:190:06:24

goals. That tally is up to 14 thanks to this eye-catching move

0:06:250:06:34
0:06:350:06:40

that guaranteed three more points. Lewington rounded off this win.

0:06:400:06:43

Walsall's enkor couraging start to the campaign gave their followers

0:06:430:06:47

every reason to be optimistic this season. That was the case before

0:06:470:06:55

Brentford arrived. They never recovered from a woeful first half.

0:06:550:07:00

Donaldson had them cruising towards the break. The home side set about

0:07:000:07:05

repairing the damage. Ryan Jarvis almost had them level with this

0:07:050:07:10

thunder bolt. Brentford were full value for the win, they are up to

0:07:100:07:15

value for the win, they are up to fourth. It was a lacklustre first

0:07:150:07:18

half performance. Unlike us. Second half performance I thought we

0:07:180:07:22

thoroughly deserved to get a share of the game today. Disappointed

0:07:220:07:32
0:07:320:07:32

of the game today. Disappointed that we didn't. It was a game of

0:07:320:07:38

frue chances. It corner found an unmarked Taylor whose flying header

0:07:380:07:48
0:07:480:07:51

was as good as it got. Yeovil struggled to create many students.

0:07:510:08:01
0:08:010:08:05

David Raven committed to a point saving challenge. Lee Hughes had a

0:08:050:08:10

pain in the neck for days, he became one for Bournemouth's

0:08:100:08:20
0:08:200:08:25

defence. Ben Burgess made his first out of the campaign and Mann made

0:08:250:08:35
0:08:350:08:38

his debut. Flahavan kept them in with a shout. Arter's ball found

0:08:380:08:46

Marc Pugh, who did the pass justice. Pugh's team hadn't won on the road

0:08:460:08:52

since mid-April. Their own success was at Meadow Lane no. Repeat this

0:08:520:09:02
0:09:020:09:07

time. Krystian Pearce restored back League defeats behind him.

0:09:070:09:17
0:09:170:09:17

Corners were proving fruitful. The home side victory made safe by

0:09:170:09:23

Montano who is on-loan. The arrangement has been extended for a

0:09:230:09:26

arrangement has been extended for a month. That was fantastic passing

0:09:260:09:30

performance. Everyone wants to see it played on the grass. We have an

0:09:300:09:38

option with Big Ben up front. We have good players. We have left a

0:09:380:09:43

couple out. One out, two out from last week. They were unlucky.

0:09:430:09:52

Brought in, what is his name, Mann, who is great for us, isn't he?

0:09:520:09:57

Burgess is another experienced one. I hope this week we will get one

0:09:570:10:05

more in which will take our game to more in which will take our game to

0:10:050:10:09

another improved level. Scunthorpe's wait for a first

0:10:090:10:14

League win goes on. They had more than enough chances to put one to

0:10:140:10:24
0:10:240:10:26

bed. The Essex club failed to heed the warning. Barcham had another

0:10:260:10:36
0:10:360:10:38

chance to set his sights. Cousins kept them at bay. Bobby Grant got

0:10:380:10:46

his sixth goal in all competitions. Jimmy Ryan stretched the home

0:10:460:10:53

side's advantage and ran into this player. As they argued orn over the

0:10:530:10:57

challenge, Grant added his own two pennies worth. Having already been

0:10:570:11:01

booked, the referee had no choice but to reach for his pocket for a

0:11:010:11:11
0:11:110:11:18

second time. The ten men held tonne their lead until second way -- half

0:11:180:11:28
0:11:280:11:29

way through the second half. Frustrating day. They deserved to

0:11:290:11:39
0:11:390:11:46

take maximum points. Barcham's finishing let them down. Hartlepool

0:11:460:11:56
0:11:560:11:57

were on their best run of form in five-years. After five minutes Gary

0:11:570:12:06

Liddle got the goal and nicked the glory. Flinders had to be sharp.

0:12:060:12:15

The striker on-loan from QPR saw his effort palmed over. Solano

0:12:150:12:21

showed his class. He struck the post from range. Again, the keeper

0:12:210:12:28

was alive to the rebound and denied him for a second time. Flinders

0:12:280:12:34

kept his side ahead stopping Nardiello's effort. The points were

0:12:340:12:42

sealed a minute from time. Monkhouse picked out Luscombe, who

0:12:420:12:47

took Hyslop time, they have an unbeaten run in the League now of

0:12:470:12:57
0:12:570:12:59

six. Craig Reid set them on their way against Rochdale. The lead was

0:12:590:13:09
0:13:090:13:13

wiped out by the half hour thanks to Gary Jones. Deal were hoping for

0:13:140:13:20

maximum points. Chris Beardsley had desthried prospect. The keeper was

0:13:200:13:26

unlucky that Beardsley was lurking. The striker's second and fourth of

0:13:260:13:36
0:13:360:13:40

the season already was much more spectacular. A mixup Saul Trotman

0:13:400:13:45

credited with an own gaul goal that Reid would have been delighted to

0:13:450:13:55
0:13:550:14:03

claim for himself. Ball got a goal claim for himself. Ball got a goal

0:14:030:14:07

he is on-loan. Our forward game was much better. Quality of our playing

0:14:070:14:17
0:14:170:14:24

in forward area was improved. We looks to be an excellent piece of

0:14:240:14:29

business for Oldham. Six minutes into his depute he gave his new

0:14:290:14:39

team the lead against Huddersfield. But Anthony Kay put Huddersfield

0:14:390:14:44

back into the match, setting it up nicely for the second half. This

0:14:440:14:51

was always going to be a tight encounter, and with 14 minutes left,

0:14:510:14:56

and ill-timed lunge by five -- by Bradley Diallo led to the ultimate

0:14:560:15:05

punishment. The home side just about held on but were given a real

0:15:050:15:15
0:15:150:15:23

tough side to this season, with the fleet years defences in the

0:15:230:15:33
0:15:330:15:43

division. Alex Mendy almost opened the volley from Jack Lester was the

0:15:430:15:49

best of a lot but still they drew a blank. Leyton Orient nearly grabbed

0:15:490:15:53

victory in the second half through Dean Cox, he should have done

0:15:530:16:03
0:16:030:16:06

What about League Two? Our feature game is at the County Ground with

0:16:060:16:16
0:16:160:16:17

managers outside the Premier League. Paulo Di Canio will be hoping for

0:16:170:16:24

or a positive end to what has been a forgettable week. They had a

0:16:250:16:30

calming cup exit which ended with an angry pit side row with his

0:16:300:16:37

striker in front of the fans and media. Paulo Di Canio has vowed

0:16:370:16:45

never to select Clarke again. There are five changes in all, including

0:16:450:16:50

the Italian goalkeeper, and with his debut. The impressive start by

0:16:500:16:56

Rotherham to the campaign has been jilted by the sale of their top

0:16:560:17:06
0:17:060:17:28

striker to Reading. Alex Revell it man's land, I think he was hoping

0:17:280:17:38
0:17:380:18:17

debut, he marked his first appearance as a Rotherham United

0:18:170:18:23

player by scoring against Leyton Orient, as he did last season. It

0:18:230:18:27

is their first attempt on target and they have scored from it. The

0:18:270:18:37

man brought in to replace the prolific striker announces to his

0:18:370:18:47
0:18:470:18:47

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

0:18:470:19:47

of the battered and bruised shot from Matt Ritchie is deflected

0:19:470:19:54

in! He takes the plaudits, and Swindon are level. He goes straight

0:19:540:20:04

over to the manager, to show the degree of unity. Matt Ritchie

0:20:040:20:11

strikes it, who does it hit last? It is an own goal. But Matt Ritchie

0:20:110:20:21
0:20:210:20:21

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

0:20:210:21:17

does not care and neither did his to Rotherham. Really good skills,

0:21:170:21:23

quick feet and good balance. Rotherham have largely been pressed

0:21:230:21:27

back by Swindon but have an opportunity here. And they have

0:21:270:21:35

taken that a opportunity! And it is Alex Revell again! A great leap and

0:21:350:21:41

a good header. And Swindon, who dominated the early minutes of the

0:21:410:21:51
0:21:510:22:10

second half, find themselves behind have given a free kick. And it is a

0:22:100:22:16

second yellow card for Danny Schofield and off goes Danny

0:22:160:22:23

Schofield. That was the challenge and I do not think Danny Schofield

0:22:230:22:31

can argue too much about it, having been booked in the first half. A

0:22:310:22:36

substitution for Swindon. Alan Connell coming on, striker for

0:22:360:22:46
0:22:460:23:10

straight into the back of the net ten men could not hold out for more

0:23:100:23:20
0:23:200:23:22

than about 20 seconds -- game on. It brings this reaction from the

0:23:220:23:32
0:23:320:24:03

Alan Connell is there again! It was a wicked ball by Matt Ritchie,

0:24:030:24:09

attacked by Alan Connell, and he buries it into the same corner in

0:24:090:24:14

which he put Swindon level a few minutes earlier. And Paulo Di

0:24:140:24:24
0:24:240:24:33

Canio's pretty miserable week is Comazzi, and he got one in the

0:24:330:24:41

first half, and he has gone! For the second time in the match, a

0:24:410:24:46

second yellow card for the same player, and that means read, for

0:24:460:24:56
0:24:560:24:59

Once again, we show how we can play against the best side in the league.

0:24:590:25:05

I told my lads that they are up there not for coincidence but

0:25:050:25:09

because they played good football, they are real athletes, they have

0:25:090:25:19
0:25:190:25:19

good physical condition. But if we play the way we did against

0:25:190:25:26

Southampton or against Oxford, we will then the game. We always said

0:25:260:25:30

that with Paulo Di Canio in charge it would be lively at Swindon Town,

0:25:300:25:35

and we were not wrong. Let us see what happened at Burton Albion,

0:25:360:25:39

because they were taking on a cash- strapped Plymouth side for whom the

0:25:400:25:49
0:25:500:25:54

fans were not quite sure what kind business as usual for Peter Reid he

0:25:540:25:59

was relieved at most of his squad available after the players opted

0:25:590:26:06

again strike action. The black cloud a -- the black cloud hanging

0:26:060:26:13

over their Clarke showed little sign of moving on. With the home

0:26:130:26:22

side in front, Calvin Zola accepted a gift from the goalkeeper. Despite

0:26:220:26:26

all the off-field problems at Home Park, the players have continued to

0:26:260:26:36
0:26:360:26:41

work hard but have not had the best I can do better. At the other end,

0:26:410:26:47

Zola showed his skill before suffering the same fate. The

0:26:470:26:51

troubling green army had their moment of light relief later on.

0:26:510:26:55

There remain many questions to answer at Home Park, including were

0:26:550:27:05
0:27:050:27:06

It is tough. The players just up to keep working hard and I want to get

0:27:060:27:10

some strength in the side imperfect positions. Keep on working hard,

0:27:100:27:20
0:27:200:27:22

left it late as Phil Parkinson took charge for the first time. Traffic

0:27:220:27:27

problems meant a delayed start for his opening match at Morecambe. No

0:27:270:27:31

doubt the new boss will have been encouraged after taking his side to

0:27:320:27:35

the break all square, but just before the hour, the home side got

0:27:350:27:44

into their stride. The thunderous finish divided the two teams until

0:27:440:27:52

deep into store much time when two substitutes combined to learn Lee

0:27:520:27:57

point. At that there Johnsons paint trophy success in the week,

0:27:570:28:02

suddenly there look looks much brighter for Bradford -- after

0:28:020:28:08

their success. Crawley are back on track. Eight --

0:28:080:28:13

Tyrone Barnett got the final touch to establish a lead which they

0:28:130:28:18

doubled just before the half-hour. Some quick-thinking set up Ben

0:28:180:28:23

Smith. No stopping that and the same was true after the break, when

0:28:230:28:27

Matt Tubbs showed why Crystal Palace and Charlton were said to be

0:28:270:28:31

sniffing around during the week. The only consolation for Bristol

0:28:310:28:39

Rovers was the mishit cross from Lee Brown 10 minutes from the end.

0:28:390:28:44

There was no reason for Bristol Rovers to celebrate. This was still

0:28:440:28:54
0:28:540:29:09

a trouncing. Four goals for Tyrone their 100% record at breeze filled

0:29:090:29:15

and the goalkeeper kept the minute with a string of good saves. The

0:29:150:29:21

home side should have taken the lead to. The referee had no

0:29:210:29:28

hesitation in giving the decision. Danny Kewell has already scored

0:29:280:29:31

twice from the spot but the Shrewsbury goalkeeper was equal to

0:29:310:29:39

the effort. The game was heading towards a stalemate went the

0:29:390:29:45

goalkeeper and needlessly attended McAllister. The referee ordered to

0:29:450:29:51

retake. Again it was down to Nicky Wroe, who insured the 0.4 Graham

0:29:510:30:01
0:30:010:30:05

Hereford's step after their first League One since early April. It

0:30:050:30:15
0:30:150:30:23

seemed like it was going to be the aim old story. Winnall struck the

0:30:230:30:33
0:30:330:30:36

blow just before time. Port Vale manager felt it was criminal they

0:30:360:30:46
0:30:460:30:50

didn't a point at Wimbledon. Dodds was denied by this clearance. Ben

0:30:500:30:56

Williamson's missed out. His radar was not quite locked in. Wimbledon

0:30:560:31:06
0:31:060:31:15

took the lead before the break. The keeper stopped this penalty. Morsy

0:31:150:31:24

got the rebound. Dodds was denied again on the line. He must have

wondwhaerd he had to do to get on the scoresheet. Dodds didn't give

0:31:310:31:41
0:31:410:31:41

the Dons a chance to get a man back on the line. Relief all round. That

0:31:410:31:47

only lasted until the hour mark. Gwillim scored. Hard to believe his

0:31:470:31:56

last goal was almost three years ago. Vale were not to be undone.

0:31:560:32:01

Mosy levelled things again. Surely that would be enough a to take a

0:32:010:32:11
0:32:110:32:15

point back. In time added on, Jolley sent Dons fans home happy.

0:32:150:32:23

The finish a final dagger through Vale fan's hearts. Four defeats

0:32:230:32:28

from their first five games highlights what a miserable start

0:32:280:32:38
0:32:380:32:42

to the season it has been for Crewe. They saw off Oxford. Miller opened

0:32:420:32:47

the scoring. Miller got the second. United boss felt his side could

0:32:470:32:55

have got something. Pass the hour, Crewe were out of sight. Leitch-

0:32:550:33:03

Smith timed his run to perfection. The visitors refused to give up.

0:33:030:33:11

Smalley set up Liam Davis. The home team were facing an anxious ten

0:33:110:33:18

minutes. Davis fancied his chances from range. Crewe hung on for their

0:33:180:33:28
0:33:280:33:32

first win at home. Macclesfield held their own in the firs half,

0:33:320:33:41

Torquay turned the screw after the break. Nobody was going to stop

0:33:410:33:46

Saah from opening his account for the club. That header was the first

0:33:460:33:50

time Macclesfield had conceded in four league games. It wouldn't be

0:33:510:33:59

the last. Three defenders confronted Lee Mansell but none

0:33:590:34:09
0:34:090:34:11

attempted a tackle. Torquay saved the best to last. O'Kane made it's

0:34:110:34:19

Macclesfield's heaviest defeat so far. Both managers weren't over the

0:34:190:34:26

moon by their side's performance. Aldershot brought Cheltenham's good

0:34:260:34:36
0:34:360:34:45

run to the end. Jermaine McGlashan went close to breaking the deadlock.

0:34:450:34:54

Aldershot's unbeaten run stands at four games in all competitions. For

0:34:540:34:59

the best part of an hour things could hardly have gone better for

0:34:590:35:09
0:35:090:35:12

Southend. Mohsni got this terrific strike. Ryan Hall let fly after the

0:35:120:35:21

break. 59 minutes gone and Southend seemed comfortable. Akinfenwa was

0:35:220:35:30

unstoppable. North Hampton had lost their last five games in all

0:35:300:35:34

competitions. This was a real tonic for the boss who missed the match

0:35:340:35:44
0:35:440:36:04

through illness. This equalliser had them on course for a point.

0:36:040:36:09

Nick McKoy departed the pitch slightly earlier than his team-

0:36:090:36:19
0:36:190:36:19

mates after this tackle. It's never good when there are more red cards

0:36:190:36:24

than goals in a game. The first man to go was Charlie Barnet. There is

0:36:240:36:28

little argument that his two-footed lung didn't deserve instant

0:36:280:36:37

dismissal. The loss of manpower did little to put off Stanley who were

0:36:370:36:45

inspired by the situation. Fletcher raced clear to set up Ian KCraney.

0:36:450:36:51

This effort skimmed the post. Crane was a torn in Barnet's side, so

0:36:510:36:57

much so they left him alone. This clip nearly returned the form for

0:36:570:37:06

Fletcher, who was unable to convert. Kevin Long judged to have stopped a

0:37:060:37:11

goalscoring opportunity. No hesitation for the referee to go to

0:37:110:37:15

his pocket. Despite being done to nine they hung on for a valuable

0:37:150:37:25

nine they hung on for a valuable point. Now a look at the League

0:37:250:37:35
0:37:350:37:35

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

0:37:350:38:18

Before we signed off. You can watch the show

0:38:180:38:21

on the Red Button till midday, but on Freeview only till 9.30am this

0:38:210:38:23

morning. You'll be able to see highlights of

0:38:230:38:25

all the weekend's games on the BBC Sport website.

0:38:250:38:28

It's international week, which means there are no Championship games in the npower Football League, so that leaves the focus on Leagues One and Two.

In League One, one of the pre-season favorites are Huddersfield Town. Town just missed out on promotion last season, beaten in the play-offs by Peterborough, and will be hoping they can secure one of the automatic promotion spots this time around. Lee Clark's side faces a short trip to Oldham to face Paul Dickov's team.

Meanwhile, how is Paolo Di Canio's Swindon Town adapting to life in League Two? There are extended highlights of their match with Rotherham.
