Good evening. Patrick two week break, today saw a welcome return


to action for the NPower Football League End while there hasn't been


a great deal to report on the pitch, they have been plenty of it.


Michael Appleton and Nick Barmby began their new roles, Nigel


Pierson starts his back -- his second spell in charge of Leicester


tomorrow. Gary Johnson has parted company with Northampton. It is all


change at Crewe, with Dario Gradi Director of Football. We will see


what difference these changes have made. We have Steve Claridge. There


were 111 goals. It was a great game from the South Coast as Southampton


at Brighton met at St Mary's. Both newly-promoted, both adapting very


nicely to life back in the Championship. Leeds went to the


weekend just one place outside the play-offs. We will have all the


action from the lunch time clash as Datacom Burnley. -- as they took on


Burnley. Nick Barmby to come Hull - - took charge of Hull for the first


time. Portsmouth played at Vicarage Road. Would they or wouldn't week?


We're at the Galpharm Stadium, where Huddersfield Town are trying


to fit -- tried to set a new unbeaten record, if they can avoid


defeat against Notts County. More on Huddersfield later. We start in


the Championship and the big game that took place between Southampton


and Brighton. Both sides came up from League 1 last season and are


looking to exit the division at the other end. The Saints began the day


with a healthy lead at the top thanks to their best start to the


season for 90 years. Brighton were in touching distance of the play-


offs. At St Mary's, where Southampton haven't lost for almost


Mary's and it is easy to understand why. Southampton have lot -- have


won their last 19 games in a row here ratsit at the top of the table.


Brighton stalled and slid but they did South Coast neighbours to the


League 1 title last season and would like nothing better than to


destroy Saints's current invincibility. Dean Hammant returns


last five games. Mackail-Smith is suffering from a similar barren run.


His last scoring was September 27th. Marcus Painton is preferred at the

Brighton's resistance is over. For the first time this afternoon,


Brighton switched off. They were not tight enough. The cross was


depend accurate and Lambert got in behind Noone and Taricco and POW as


it came from close range. He does not miss from there. -- he powers

the decisions that are a lot clearer cut than that were not


given us a penalty and this one is. The decision given by the assistant


referee. Here is the challenge. He is outside the area. Taricco has


been sent off for something he said to the referee. I can only conclude


has obviously used a bit too much penalty of the season by Lambert,


two today. Surely Southampton are closing in on their 20 his home win


in a row. The keeper was sent the What a chance. A chance out of

cherry on top of the icing on top of the cake. He attacked it well,


We have won a game and it is important to keep the momentum


going. Likewise we don't get too high when we win, we don't get too


low when we lose. We have a very hard working, honest group of


players here. A good place to come and work and everyone is working


hard for each other and the supporters have something to smile


at cheer about. I did not know I was going to go because I have not


played in Championship, I did not know how well it would go but I had


confidence in both and obviously it is going superb this season. We


have to carry it on now. We respect the referee's a lot and we give


them credit for the job they do and how difficult it is nowadays in


football to give a penalty or not but at least it should be dealt


with and when it is so embarrassing, if you want the players to accept


it and clap their hands and go home and relax and forget about that,


they took everything we did and 55 minutes away just because, who


knows, they went through the head of the referee and the linesman


today. When we analyse the game, all the situations that arise, at


the end of the Day the referee's has difficult situations and the


assistants, to make decisions and calls and it was probably several


situations that arose. At the end of the day I like to think it was a


good Rickie Lambert goal that one as the game from the cross that


came in from good play that we are tried -- that we tried to achieve,


to win the football -- to win with football, not through penalties.


have to talk about 55 minutes. The first penalty. This is a shocking


decision by the referee. It is an the box apart from when he falls


over. Let's get something straight, the right team won. There is no


doubt about that. But 55 minutes against a side who have won 20 on


the spin at home and you are a goal down, you were up against it but at


two-nil you have killed the game off from the Brighton perspectives


see can understand why Gus Poyet is angry because it gave them a really


difficult task after that. But as I say, it -- I don't want to take it


away from Southampton because they get right? He had five big


decisions and he got four wrong. This is the one he got right. Let's


start of positive. Steve Harper pools D Hammond's legs away. D


Hammond is looking for that, from the very start. -- Dean Hammond.


Markets painter, exactly the same. I am not sure why he has elected to


mark him. He did that, and he got away with it in the first half, but


how he got away with it in the second half, I do not know. I think


this is the most debatable. Does he touches foot? At first, it looks


like it, from this angle but as we like it, from this angle but as we


study of more, it looks like there is no contact. Lambert is trying to


read the tackle. Overall, Peter Wharton has not had a great day.


Rickie Lambert, he had a blinding day. Southampton are going from


strength to strength. They made a better start of this season than


the last two winners of the Championship. They will take some


stopping. It shows how far they have come because Brighton finished


above them last year. They had two very close games. You could not say


that was a close game. Brighton were still in the game for 55


minutes. They never looked like they were going to win anything.


The top two, for me, are in a good situation. And Southampton have


lead on art back. All in all, good day. -- Lee Bullen art. West Ham


day. -- Lee Bullen art. West Ham start the day in second, and they


took the best away record in the No contest. Coventry, four points


away from victory and the visitors aiming to extend an unbeaten away


run of four matches. No wonder they had been hammering the Hammers with


five wins so far. But they found themselves behind within half an


hour when Clive Platt gave the faithful are rare reason to cheer.


That was only their 14th league goal of the campaign. It has been


Coventry's were start to league season in a decade. -- worst start.


Sam Allardyce Anton Carlton Cole at half-time, as he made the perfect


impact. -- sent on an Carlton Cole. Things went bad fur -- from bad to


worse as the Hammers or all of a sudden 2-1 up. Again an inspired


substitution. Freddy Piquionne with an unfortunate deflected finish.


Hart sank around the Ricoh Arena. - - hearts sank. Spot the Coventry


defence on this breakaway. But Collison squandered one of the


match's simplest chances. West Ham match's simplest chances. West Ham


keep pace with the leaders. goals were well deserved even


though they look scruffy. Jack Collison missed the chance of the


game, just to finally finished Coventry off, but it is still a


Coventry off, but it is still a great result. Third place played


5th on Teesside as middlebrow and Black will look to extend their


winning streaks. The Riverside has be a fortress this season. They


started brightly here and were only denied an early lead by the width


of the post. Steve McManus was the unlucky man. Middlesbrough a's


early dominance was awarded after 50 minutes. -- was rewarded. The


visitors' response was immediate. Sylvester steered in his first


league goal in a Blackpool should. -- Blackpool shirt. But a could not


find a way past Matt Gilks. -- Middlesbrough could not find a way


past. There was little that he could do to prevent Middlesbrough


from taking the lead. Rees Williams picked out McDonald after Blackpool


failed to clear the corner. Blackpool looked on course for


their first home win against the Tangerines in 38 years. Blackpool


showed impressive response -- impressive resolve. Selby's 5th


goal in four games. Middlesbrough a extend their unbeaten record to 16


games at home. These sides last met at the semi-


finals in May when Reading came out on top. McDermott is still at -- in


charge at the Madeski Stadium. He would have been a happier man after


kick-off, when Cardiff got the perfect start. Federici was forced


into a save. Stand by for a stunning goal from Peter


Whittingham. How is that from -- for a Saturday afternoon? He will


certainly not score any better. 10 minutes later, the hosts thought


they had levelled but the system reverie cut short the celebrations.


-- assistant referee. Mark Robson guided in his second goal of the


season. Reading have not lost in nine of their last 10 League games


and gave themselves a chance of maintaining that run when Kebe made


it 2-1. But Cardiff looked the more likely play-off contenders.


After Nigel Pearson's departure to Leicester, hole mack appointed Nick


Barmby as player manager, the first Tigers also to be born in Hull. --

They have provided the least goals of anyone in the Championship.


Matty Fryatt applied a typically assured finish. Six minutes later,


another brave run lead to up second goal. -- a second goal. Cameron


Stewart's first goal in senior football. Owing a lot to


uncharacteristic error from Frankie Fielding.


Facing uphill struggle to avoid their third defeat in as many


matches, Derby could have been back in the game before half-time.


Having shaken off their goal-shy reputation, it was Hull and looked


the more likely to extend their lead. Brady stun a fielding's palms.


It was a fine start for the new man It was a fine start for the new man


in charge. It is not about me. It is about the players. I thought


they were magnificent today. Their attitude and commitment was superb.


Some of the play was pleasing on the eye. That is what these boys


can do. I think the work rate was can do. I think the work rate was


fantastic, and that is what got us the result.


A Peterborough arrived at St Andrews looking to gain their first


away win against a Birmingham side yet to lose at home this season


under Chris Hughton. They dominated the game from the start and needed


some alert goalkeeping to deny Marlon King early on. Peterborough


have the worst defensive record in the Championship so far and it


proof is needed than statistics do not lie, it was provided after 22


minutes. The pattern of the game continued after the restart.


Bowside created chances but failed to turn them into goals. Murphy was


the guilty party this time. It was a costly miss Pickles after one


hour, Peterborough equalised with their first effort on goal. -- a


costly miss because after one hour. Murphy's eight of the season.


Birmingham introduced to Zigic as a late substitute. The move nearly


paid off. But for Jones and the line than his flag. -- linesman's


line than his flag. -- linesman's flag. There were many good chances.


On another day, we would have won the game comfortably. Europe


against good opposition and if you're not putting the chances away,


they will have that opportunity. -- they will have that opportunity. --


you are up. Nottingham Forest welcomed it switched to the City


Ground with the hosts looking for a 4th win in six games. The visitors


were desperate to end a losing streak. Within a minute, they


created the first opening. Jason Scotland was unable to test Lee


Camp. It was not long before oasts Carr doubt another chance. But they


could only find the grateful arms of David Stockdale. Aaron


Cresswell's excellent delivery allowed Danny Collins to head in


the first goal in almost three years. Forest deserved to going to


the brake on level terms and did that thanks to ordinary Ipswich


defending. Roddy Finlay took advantage. Then, lesson number


three in how not to defend a set- piece. Jimmy Bullard's corner was


met by the head of Collins. It's which have not returned from a City


Ground with three points since 1999. Just when I looked under threat,


Nottingham Forest Neville -- level once more. -- Just when that looked


under threat. In stoppage time, fans were treated to a grandstand


finale. It's which failed to deal with a cross. Marcus Tudgay sealed


an unlikely win. -- it's which failed. So far so good for Steve


failed. So far so good for Steve Cotterill. The character was


magnificent that the players showed. To go down twice at home, we should


not underestimate the energy and confidence and the team spirit we


have going at this moment in time. Portsmouth travelled to Vicarage


Road for their first match under Michael Appleton in hope, more than


expectation. Watford have been hovering above the bottom three.


But they flew out of the blocks in this one. Ahead after barely two


minutes. Michael Kightly returning from injury scored his first


from injury scored his first Watford goal. Appleton was


beginning to find out the full extent of the job of his -- the job


on his hands when the home side went 2-0 up at half-time. The


visitors have not won at Watford since 1996. The best chance was


this, forcing a rare save from Scott Loach. It proved a tough


Scott Loach. It proved a tough baptism for Pompey' boss.


-- Pompey's new boss. We were on -- Pompey's new boss. We were on


the back foot for most of the game. We talked about how important it


was to start well, having not won away from home this season.


Obviously, the first 90 seconds summed up the away performances


this year. These are important games for us. We felt we could


build on what we did early in the season. There are signs of it


coming together. We have won three out of four games, so by no means


is the work done but it is showing signs of promise. We will build on


signs of promise. We will build on that. Barnsley welcome Doncaster


for a South Yorkshire derby. Dean Saunders' men are bottom of the


table. Shelton Martis got itself in a rectangle, and Craig Davies gave


Barnsley a richly deserved half- time lead. -- Shelton Martis got


Lockwood was dismissed for a clumsy the chance of adding a third. James


O'Brien hit the post, leaving Danny Haynes with an easy tap-in. Or so


it seemed. In the end, it did not it seemed. In the end, it did not


matter, and Barnsley jumped to 15. It was a good win for Barnsley.


Contrasting fortunes for two of the Contrasting fortunes for two of the


new boys. A dream start for Nick Bourne be at Hull. I think he has


been left with a decent group of players. -- Nick Barmby. They


showed lots of character, to come back into that game. But there,


they are not a team to give up. It they are not a team to give up. It


will go right to the end. There is lots of belief. He has inherited a


willing group of players. Cameron Stewart, good to see him score, his


Stewart, good to see him score, his first start for nine months. Not so


good for Michael Appleton at Portsmouth. He now knows the job


that is lying in front of them. He has said it is not good enough.


This is a decent group of players that are under-achieving. It is. If


you look at their budget and the players that they have got, and the


Premiership and Championship experience, you would not expect


them to be where they are. These them to be where they are. These


are disappointing times. If I was the, or honour, I would expect


better. -- if I was the owner. better. -- if I was the owner.


for Cardiff, five wins out of six. They were seen as a team of


individuals last season. This time around, with Peter Whittingham,


there is a lot of team spirit between these players. I know what


you mean. It was an emphasis on the tackling. They had so much flair


tackling. They had so much flair and threat going forward, that it


was almost forgotten about, the rest of the side. As you say, it


tends to be more or of a group performance. They are a cohesive


unit. A more than relying on what ought to make individuals. They


have surprised me slightly. I thought it would be a tough act to


follow. But they have got going Peter Whittingham has been a star


performer. This is sub today's lunch time game. The Clarets


started at eighteens, Leeds moved up into 7th just outside the play-


offs on the back of the win at Leicester last time out. There was


a minute's applause at Turf Moor in honour of Jimmy Adamson -- Jimmy


Adams and he, who sadly passed away this week. He captained Burnley to


the First Division title in 1960. Burnley made two changes. Keith


Tracee and Michael Duff back in the side with folks on the bench. O'Dea


Advantage to Burnley. An unopposed cross, someone has to come out and


close them down. And great, deep delivery, downward header,


looked like handball. He is outside the box. Handball, how did they


have a free kick. He is the wrong wall is set-up right the wall --


the ball should not be going past should have done better. What a


touch, a lovely touch. He gets away from defenders, takes the touch to


good save, because that was a cracking strike from Ian Tracey.


Once again, under pressure on the players and fans alike but they are


turn on each other. Great thinks having got there he should


He went for goal, it was deflected for stoppages going to be a corner.


It was nearly another chance for They have got two! He controls it


We did not well -- we do not play well in the second half. The second


half we had to up the tempo. Getting a Monxton, getting balls


into the box and eventually we did that but we should not start games


like this, we should be positive. It is the results business and we


played better than that this season and lost. Today we have won and we


are delighted. I felt we deserved to win the game today. We were very


good in the first half, creating chances and it is a bitter pill-4-2


swallow, to lose the game after dominating it. This game had its


fair share of flashpoints. Burnley's goalkeeper was lucky to


stay on the pitch. Burnley were one-nil were up, did they have a


decent shout for a penalty? In the studio they could not agree on it,


should have been at Burnley his leg at the start here. I think


he takes a Haydn White with him, takes his feet away slightly. He


becomes unbalanced, does make the challenge, does make a tackle and


gets the ball, although not much of the ball. The other argument is he


gets so little of the ball, he goes through an scores, but I don't


think that is the case. Barkley, by the time he has connected with


Haydn White first of all and white gets the ball, that is a legitimate


challenge. Leeds were not as fluent as against Leicester last time


round. They will put their hands up and admit not been at their best


but two goals to come from behind, Simon Grayson will be delighted.


Yes, Snodgrass again gets them out of danger. I think he summed it up


perfectly. They might have played fantastically net well next weekend


to get beaten and that is the way it goes in this division. You will


not always play well but you have to stay in games and give yourself


an opportunity to get back in them when you are behind and that is


what they did. Burnley continued to slip down the table. It is easy to


forget two years ago they were in the top ten of the Premier League.


A lot has gone on at Turf Moor at that time. Is ready Howard under


pressure here? I don't know whether he is under pressure. We don't know,


unless we are working within the club. I don't think they would


imagine they are down where they are but also I think you have to


consider there has been an awful lot of turnover of players and it


is almost reinventing the age structure of the club because young


players are in the club now, whereas before it was probably more


established players at that level. They have gone down a different


route at this stage, you have got to say they would expect a bit of a


better return. The last one was Charlie Austin. It is never easy


when you have somebody like that. That is exactly what happened last


season. On to League 1 and there is no doubt that much of the focus has


been on Huddersfield Town, whose unbeaten league run stood at a


staggering 42 regular league matches so while Saturday's games


with Notts County was about both teams looking for three points, for


Huddersfield it was a chance to write their name into football


league folklore. Clem was up the Galpharm to sea of history was in


Huddersfield Town already hold it posted just place in football


history. In the 1920s they became the first club to win the English


league title three seasons in a row. But to date is all about the


passing Nottingham Forest's 33- year-old Football League record.


Lee Clark's team last tasted defeat I am immensely proud of what we


have done. We all should be. Everyone connected with the club,


to be a professional sport and go so long without losing a game is


phenomenal achievement and the lads deserve a huge amount of credit for


it. Just as it Huddersfield's achievement and perspective, the


record that they equalled a fortnight ago was set by a Forrest


side that had, well, the whole world in their hands. Kewell music.


# We've got the whole world in our hands, the ball wide world in our


hands. Sam. That is quite enough of that. ABA winnable one when Forest


started their run on 26th November 1967, a run almost as incredible as


this one against Arsenal. COMMENTATOR: two-nil. A forest were


irresistible, they put four past And when they were in trouble the


opposition still had to get past this fellow. Oh, what do save!


Outstanding goalkeeping. Forest's run eventually came to run almost a


year after it started in 1978, when they were beaten at Anfield by


Liverpool and you will never guess How good were that team? Excellent,


unbelievable. People used to say at the time that there was a big


rivalry, of course there was off the field but we were great mates.


I still talk to them now. Fantastic characters as well. They were a


really good team. What I like about them, most of the players at that


time were players that other teams did not want and Clough brought


them all together and made them fantastic. Huddersfield are already


celebrating this month after striker Jordan Rhodes' 13 goals


this season including two hacked -- including two hat-tricks. I dreamt


about that moment for years and never in my dreams did I think it


would have happened this season, or so young. So to come on, they have


taken half a minute, ten seconds, # One more time #.


It could be a special date will stop we hope so, it will be


fantastic if we can make that but I'm always aware when you talk


things up too much you end up with egg on your face. I have been in


this game too long and try to keep the lid on everything and focus on


three points. So here they go, Huddersfield Town, 90 minutes a day


-- awake from another significant landmark. Football League has been


going since 1888 and it will be no under severe threat the other team


from the other side of the Trent said about ruining Huddersfield's


day. There was a goalless first half but it took less than a minute


to open the scoring in the second. Jordan Rhodes got his 14th of the


campaign. That gave County plenty of time to find an equaliser and


just past the hour their hopes of a turnaround were boosted when Lee


apparently saw red for attacking Sam Sodje. Huddersfield make sure


of their place in the history books. Jordan Rhodes killed off the


visitors' challenge. The strike there marking his 150th career


appearance with a composed finish and by the time Bishop hit back,


Lee Clark's men were celebrating a famous win which leads them six


Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds


games short of Arsenal's record of lads, the loads on the bench, you


have all made a huge contribution. Well done. Different Class, well


done. Never mind a club, what about your own scoring run. It is nice


when it happens. You cannot score every game, fortunately today over


managed to get a couple. Three points, that's what it is all about.


You get kept down to earth here, don't you? Yes. How does it feel?


Fantastic. Everything I told you beforehand, I was pulling the wall,


I was desperate for the record. It is fantastic to be up there on our


own now. It is quite fitting that Jordan Rhodes gets both goals, when


they beat that record. What an achievement, 43 games unbeaten in


the league. Yes, when you think about it, what it takes to achieve


that, it is incredible. This was a great finish, he's confident, in


the mood, he knows what he's going to do when he gets in that


situation. Other people, when they are not in that kind of form, they


might be in two minds, but he knows exactly what he's going to do. He's


on form, they're on form, together, fantastic. As for the rest of


League One, leaders Charlton were five points ahead of Huddersfield


going into the weekend. The addicts had a London derby to contend with


against Brentford, hoping to avenge a much so for defeat in the


Johnstone's Paint Trophy last month. -- the Addicks. Chris Powell's


League leaders have the best away record in League One this season,


but they almost fell behind in this London derby early on. Bradford


have the better of the first half, but the mood changed in the second


period. The defend it collided with his own goalkeeper, and the


collision resulted in 10 minutes of injury time, after which manager


Juve Rosslare said the thoughts of the squad were with the right back.


-- manager Uwe Rosler. Charlton stamped their authority on the


match after the restored. They got the only goal through Bradley


Wright-Phillips. -- after the restart. Tranmere started well


against Sheffield Wednesday, and Jose Baxter had this strike ruled


out for offside. But he was not to be denied. With the home side in


control, there was a time that Sheffield Wednesday would have


crumbled, but they're made of sterner stuff these days. After


half time, and a couple of substitutions, Sheffield Wednesday


did even better. It was Ryan Lowe who got the winner, it was a


scruffy goal, but three more valuable points for Sheffield


Wednesday. The first of three games which the Colchester boss felt


would be a marker for the rest of the campaign. So, when they went in


front through Matt Heath, the signs looked promising against MK Dons.


But failing to build on their early dominance proved costly. Seven


minutes before the break, Charlie MacDonald levelled. That proved to


be a springboard for MK Dons. Tom Flanagan was given far too much


room to smashing his first for the club, and complete the turn around.


Despite going into the break in front, Carl Robinson revealed that


he had laid into his players at half-time, and his team added three


more goals after. It left Colchester's six-match unbeaten run


at home in tatters. Stephen Gleeson increased the punishment just


before 90 minutes. And MK Dons clearly had a taste for more, this


one coming from Jabo Ibehre deep into stoppage time. Sheffield


United almost opened the scoring after five minutes against Carlisle,


but Richard Cresswell was unable to steer home the rebound after this


long range effort. The only goal arrived 15 minutes later, when Ched


Evans was in the right place at the right time to get his eighth of the


season. With 20 minutes to play, the home side should have extended


their lead. Substitute Ryan Flynn was brought down, but the


goalkeeper kept the penalty out. In the end, one was enough for


Sheffield United. It was their first win in three. This was the


only game in League One not to feature a goal. Stevenage came


closest to breaking the deadlock with this effort. Andy Monkhouse


got Hartlepool's first goal, before the break. The Scunthorpe boss was


questioning whether his players were even interested. The fans were


not happy at half-time, and it got worse 13 minutes before the end,


when Antony Sweeney got point in the last seven matches,


and they could have gone behind 10 minutes into the second half, but


Gary Jones' penalty was saved. However, it was the visitors who


found the breakthrough six minutes from time, Nicky Adams hitting home.


Nothing Thorsten Stuckmann could do about that one. It was a nightmare


return to Oldham for Chesterfield manager John Yeah!. And this was a


finish of class and a taste of what was to come. Robbie Simpson got his


first, on what was going to be a memorable day. Brimming with


confidence, Simpson then got another, to make it three. The spy


rights are facing a big fight for survival in the second half of the


season. Craig Westcarr showed some of the spirit which will be


required, with this header. The visitors may be had ideas of a


fightback, but Simpson claimed the match ball before the break, his


first career hat-trick, courtesy of some very generous Chesterfield


defending. Into the second half, and it was high-fives all round


before the hour mark, this time it was Shefki Kuqi nodding home, his


12th in 16 games. Former Oldham loanee Leon Clarke got on the


scoresheet with time ticking down, but that did little to please the


travelling fans who were still Bury, who dished out a lesson in


finishing at Walsall. The first one came from Peter Sweeney. The home


side had taken just seven points from 36 going into this, but were


given a lifeline when my Jones gave a penalty away. Veteran striker Jon


Macken shouldered the responsibility to score from 12


yards. But Richie Barker's men have done well on their travels in


recent weeks. Just a minute into the second half, Jones made amends


for his earlier error. Just past the hour, it was all over,


following Stephen Scimeca's goal. Three minutes from time, Bury got


final word, through George Bowerman. This result leaves his team two


points from safety. Wycombe were without a home win in four matches,


whereas Bournemouth were unbeaten on their travels in six. So it was


no surprise when Marc Pugh broke the deadlock for Bournemouth early


on. 10 minutes later, the home side were given a chance to level, with


a penalty. But Stuart Bevan could only blaze the penalty into the


travelling supporters. There was a local derby to enjoy at Huish Park.


The home side took the lead within 69 seconds. It was a terrific start


for Yeovil, who came into the game bottom of the league. But less than


three minutes later, Exeter were level, through Jake Taylor. The


Devon side were the next to score. John O'Flynn dusted himself down


after winning the penalty, and scored it himself. Both teams hit


the woodwork in the second half, but the fourth and final goal of


the game went the way of Yeovil, Dominic Blizzard getting his second


in as many games. So, the points shared in that one. A couple of


high-scoring games, including the MK Dons. We saw them score six in


the FA Cup last week, five this time. So, things are looking good,


and they have lost some big names. Yes, and that's why he has done


such a good job. That's the difference between something like


Huddersfield. Huddersfield do not have to sell. MK Dons, West Ham


came along, and they had to sell Sam Baldock. But the lad who


replaced him, Charlie MacDonald, got a couple today. They are not a


team who can keep their best players, so he has done a super job.


As for Rochdale, their first win in seven, much needed. Their manager


has come under a bit of pressure. It took them an eternity to get


into this division. Yes, I spoke to him, he came to the Charity Shield.


He said, we have lost our two best players in the summer. I think they


have lost a couple more since then. He said, my brief is to stay in


this division, and hopefully that is what they will do. John Sheridan,


goodness knows how he's feeling tonight after conceding all of


these goals today. Yes, it was a good win for Oldham, keeping them


in with a shout of the play-offs. But guess, for Chesterfield, these


are tough times, just recently promoted, so they will not want to


go down again. Obviously moving to a new ground as well. So, tough


times, but they will have to start turning things around. There's


interesting reports that James Beattie might be coming back to


Bramall Lane. The prospect of having someone like that, with Ched


Evans, if they can get James Beattie fit, it could be a potent


partnership? You would like to think so, if James Beattie can get


back to his best, which is not certain. It has been a while since


he has put in good, consistent performances. I think he has done


so work in the gym at Bournemouth. But if he can get back to anywhere


near where he was, it will be a good acquisition. Moving on to lead


to, the good times keep rolling for Southend United, to put the table,


and with an FA Cup replay to come against Preston. Today they went to


straightforward assignment for the leaders, bidding to stretched their


run to 11 games against the Dagenham site. Ferdinand got them


in front after eight minutes. If they thought it would be plain


sailing they were hugely mistaken. Montano teasing three defenders and


putting the Daggers back on terms. The Shrimps hoping to equal a club


record of five successive away wins hit back. Mohsni scored. -- MoD and


eight -- Mohsni crossed and Dickinson's court. Four minutes


into the second half, Abu Ogogo had the Southend defence retreating and


let fly. A spectacular equaliser had the grieving of an upset but


the table toppers refused to be blown off course -- had been


dreaming of an upset. Ferdinand edged them back in front. This time


there would be no way back. To their credit the Daggers kept on


going and almost snatched a share of the points late on but a fine


double stop from Daniel's means the meetings between these sides but


they fell behind after four admits that the Broadfield Stadium.


Barnett got his 9th goal of the campaign to put Crawley ahead. He


was soon to be in double figures as ten minutes later he leapt highest


to head home Drury free kick. At this stage it looked like being an


uphill task for the visitors' book with half-an-hour on the clock


Constable took advantage of criminal defending to halve the


deficit. The ewes have lost the last three and a role in all


competitions and were looking to a rest the slump in form but on the


stroke of half-time they were three-one down what the goalkeeper


misjudged Drury's low cross. He was again beaten in the second half has


start of the season, Port Vale have lost their way. They arrived at


Cheltenham having not hit the net in the last two games. In that for


you can't afford to help the opposition. To be stepped up to


convert from the spot. That goal gave them impetus and it was


confirmed by Summerfield. Seven wins in eight for Cheltenham, who


following Gary Johnson's departure but his hopes of landing the


Northampton John all times suffered a blow against Shrewsbury. Wright


got up the opener. It set the tone for the afternoon. There was a


second five minutes before the break. Wright taking charge of the


situation to double his tally. The home team failed to heed the


warning and Shrewsbury effectively ended the contest. Gornell made a


nuisance of himself before the visitors became in complete control.


Four minutes into the second, Tozer gave a glimmer of hope. The second


goal they needed failed to materialise. The Shrews hit four


more in the last eight minutes. Morgan got his first in ten games.


Northampton's winless run would stretched to seven matches.


Akinfenwa's strike did little to ease the pain. 4-2 one still time


for more. Collins scoring with his first touch to increase the lead


further. Uncomfortable viewing for the caretaker boss of Northampton,


who hopes to be on a shortlist of candidates who will be interviewed


in the coming week. Jacobsen did not do any favours when he drove in


the 6th. If that wasn't bad enough the manner of the Sevens will give


the man in charge nightmares for days to come. More terrible


defending put Collin's in the clear and with Morgan waiting to pounce,


Langmead racked up the 7th to leave It has been a very enjoyable


performance. You don't quote because it is it -- because the


club is in turmoil. I don't repeat on television what I think. We got


back in Act three-one. To give away Crewe Alexandra, their first match


under Steve Davis but it looked as if it would end in defeat. Kevin


Ellis and bore down on goal and scored at the second attempt after


an initial save from the goalkeeper -- Kevin Ellis and. The hosts were


trying to avoid another defeat. Crewe levelled things up. 17-year-


old Nick Powell enhanced his reputation with this solo effort.


This was his third goal of the season. Crewe's record of producing


quality youngsters is well known. It was another 17-year-old, Clayton,


who scored the winner with virtually the last kick of the game.


The manager said afterwards that defeat was hard to take. His mood


was not helped by his side's hesitant late defending. Clayton


Two 17-year-old on the pitch and they both score. I never know what


they're going to do, being that age they are inconsistent but there are


huge talents and we have to nurture them through and keep with them


because they are going to be big proud and that it offers Swindon


players after their performance at Wimbledon. That frustration came


early as the home team opened the scoring. Had an's effort somehow


creeping in. -- Hutton. This time some good play but, all's bobbling


shot hit the post. There was to be some but his affection for the


Robins as they maintained their undefeated run. Jake Jervis had the


shot but there was a deflection, Jervis celebrated like it was his


Hereford drawing first blood. Purdey was on the spot. Seeing the


ball hit the back of the spot -- the back of the net was a welcome


relief after previous matches but the lead was wiped out five minutes


later. Zola was scoring. It was not level for long. Barkhuizen had a


clear sight of goal. The 18-year- old's six of the campaign but the


home side are on course for us bash -- for a precious win. They were


hit with not one but two sucker punches at the death as Burton


pinched the point. Webster cold and the equaliser for 2-2. Three


minutes into stoppage time, Hereford were floored again. Billy


Kee's volley went over the line to live Burston into the play-off


wasted no time in returning to the scoresheet. He got his 5th


Gillingham goal. The visitors found themselves two goals to the good,


Young could not keep out Whelpdale's long-range effort. The


shots -- the Shots were staring another defeat in face. They pulled


one back. Davies's strike was no Torquay as they entered a certain


and you wait for a leak -- for a victory over Plymouth. O'Kane lit


up the fixture. This was a fine appetiser. The second was something


special. A quality piece of skill and invention that left the


goalkeeper, Romain Larrieu, help us. With the home fans in full voice it


was down to Stevens to delight. He punished them Argyll error. There


was a late consolation for the visitors. Atkinson was the scorer.


That did little to dampen the spirits as Torquay claimed the


this week in an attempt to lift spirits following a miserable run


away from home but they were in a Hull when bristly crushed


Macclesfield in to a first-half lead. Just the tonic Simpson's team.


12 minutes from the and Stanley found a response. Stockley her been


a share of the points. It is nine months since they enjoyed taking


this match. The visitors were given a post after 22 minutes when


Williams' cross was handled. The Hamed -- hey would pointed to the


spot. Grabban got a goal. That acted as a wake-up call -- wake-up


call for the hosts who started to look more threatening. Mitchell got


his first for the club. The visitors took six minutes of the


second half to re-establish their lead. Revel did enough for his 5th


of the season. It looked as if the Millers had the bragging rights.


Mark Shaw made it three-one. -- MA Shaw. The hosts were given the


chance to get back into the game in injury time. Flynn made it three-


two. It ensured a nervy end to the match. The Bantams had a chance to


rescue a point and in the 95th minute the referee pointed to the


spot for the third time and again, he saw a hand ball. However, Logan


saved from clean so the hosts paid Barnet. Byrne's corner was sent


goal-bound. The manager had no equaliser the game stretched and


the result was confirmed in the 8th minute of stoppage time. Byrne was


given time and space. His placement was perfect. A crucial victory, the


side is now out of the relegation A great result for Barnard. There


is no room for sentiment and in this sport. We saw what shrews


predictor Northampton. Maginnis Northampton and they conceded seven


goals. If every goal epitomised the job that David Healy has got, this


has to be at. I think so, it sums situation but does nothing more


than put it into his own net. You can understand why they have


conceded seven. Four goal and the last few minutes. It is needless.


What you have to do is make the opposition work for everything they


get and if someone scores seven you are not doing that. But not a great


role, five wins out of seven. They are on a roll. This is with their


top scorer out at the moment. Two goal been added on time. They were


going to the end. They clearly thought they were in this game and


carried on and eventually they got their just deserts. At 90 minutes


they were 2-1 down and they finished by winning the game. Good


luck to them. The same goes for Cheltenham Town. They -- we talk


about them on a weekly basis. They have beaten Bradford, premier in


the cup. These are the kind of results that stand out. Very much


so. They started out very well last year they did not get the


impression that the players they get -- with the players they had


but it was a work-in-progress. It was a fact-finding mission. They


know what they're doing now. They are looking good shape. I think


they have started to convince people that they could do something
