Good evening. Welcome along to the best of the championship lead. We

:00:37.:00:46.

saw more away wins than those at home. Steve is with me tonight. He

:00:46.:00:51.

will be shedding some light on the winners and losers. He is at inns

:00:51.:00:59.

of what is on offer. It is not often that two four-man England

:00:59.:01:09.
:01:09.:01:09.

managers go head to head. With nine goals in three league games, there

:01:09.:01:17.

is no doubt that Southampton are the championship Hot wok -- Hot

:01:17.:01:27.
:01:27.:01:33.

shots at the moment. And it is all systems go for rather than United.

:01:33.:01:39.

It is the anniversary of one of their greatest achievements. They

:01:39.:01:44.

sit proudly on top of League Two. But what first up tonight is the

:01:44.:01:52.

East Midlands. Leicester made the short trip up the motorway to take

:01:52.:02:02.
:02:02.:02:05.

on Nottingham Forest. History emphatically favour the home side.

:02:05.:02:15.
:02:15.:02:15.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 145 seconds

:02:15.:04:40.

The big man. From scoring. -- the home. Leicester City are in front!

:04:40.:04:45.

Fernandes may not have scored it, but he had a part to play in its

:04:45.:04:49.

creation. The visitors are ahead at the City Ground. Questions are

:04:49.:04:59.
:04:59.:05:30.

Again, Forest guilty of giving possession away. Fernandes who set

:05:30.:05:34.

up a first scores the second and for the second time in a matter of

:05:34.:05:42.

minutes, Forest give possession away and are punished. You cannot

:05:42.:05:50.

legislate for that. Boateng could not get there. It was a past he

:05:51.:06:00.
:06:01.:06:39.

English football since 2008. He has and he knows it. It is the first

:06:39.:06:47.

time that anyone in Forest colours has had a sniff at the golf. It is

:06:47.:06:53.

a poor effort. Steve McClaren has got a bit of a half-time team talk

:06:53.:07:03.
:07:03.:07:25.

There were targets in the middle. He scampered round the back of

:07:25.:07:30.

Nottingham Forest and tried to bend it into that far post and it was

:07:30.:07:40.
:07:40.:07:56.

It is the first time he has had to put his glass it to anything. --

:07:56.:08:06.
:08:06.:08:06.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 145 seconds

:08:06.:08:53.

minutes, Kasper Schmeichel has been as busy as the proud the rest of

:08:53.:09:03.
:09:03.:09:22.

the match. Among the interested Forest have a lifeline. A yellow

:09:22.:09:32.
:09:32.:09:43.

Was there any intention? Well, the penalty is awarded for that. Mills

:09:43.:09:52.

looks puzzled. Jonathan Moss had no hesitation and Forest have a gift.

:09:52.:09:59.

A yellow card for Schmeichel as well for gamesmanship. Forest need

:09:59.:10:09.
:10:09.:10:16.

stoppage time to go. Schmeichel has kicked the ball away and gets

:10:16.:10:21.

another yellow card. He is sent off. The game changes in a matter of

:10:21.:10:28.

moments. McGugan has caused the penalty and Schmeichel gets out of

:10:28.:10:35.

the net and romps it. Out into the stands. In fact, he hurls it.

:10:35.:10:43.

Either way, his actions have merited a second yellow. And all of

:10:43.:10:47.

a sudden Sven-Goran Eriksson has a set of problems he never

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:10:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 145 seconds

:10:57.:11:46.

Boateng. Right at the end. Delirium the man he used to get Steve

:11:46.:11:51.

McClaren out of one of two problems for Middlesbrough. He has done it

:11:51.:12:01.
:12:01.:12:01.

again. An incredible 60 seconds transformed the incidents

:12:01.:12:10.

afterwards. Yes, action-packed. Drama until the end. We salvaged a

:12:10.:12:15.

point for what looked an impossible situation at half-time. Not just

:12:15.:12:20.

the two goals but the way we were playing. No real threat. You

:12:20.:12:24.

thought, had we come back from that but unbelievable character, a few

:12:24.:12:30.

changes, change the momentum halfway through the second half. We

:12:30.:12:36.

started to get on top. You just felt a little bit of luck which we

:12:36.:12:46.
:12:46.:12:51.

needed. I think it was a soft penalty. Now, it's too late. We

:12:51.:12:57.

think it is a soft penalty but the referee saw it another way.

:12:57.:13:04.

half-time, I thought this would be a tough job. You could feel it. I

:13:04.:13:13.

am pleased to we kept playing. We kept trying to play even when we

:13:13.:13:20.

used the whip around the outside, not just going forward. Make sure

:13:20.:13:25.

the Serbs are ready and they made a difference today. What did you make

:13:25.:13:29.

about the bookings for your goalkeeper? Well, his excuse is he

:13:29.:13:36.

did not say, he did not know he was booked the first time. He doesn't

:13:36.:13:44.

see it but that is not a good excuse. No, it's not. It was an

:13:45.:13:50.

incredible game. Sometimes, you see one team press self-destruct but

:13:50.:13:56.

both did. Both were the architects of their own downfall. The goals

:13:56.:14:01.

Leicester scored, Forest conceded they could have done better.

:14:01.:14:05.

Leicester get themselves in a situation where they are

:14:05.:14:10.

comfortable and press self-destruct by getting someone sent off.

:14:10.:14:15.

Conceding a penalty which is debatable. If you are in Nottingham

:14:15.:14:22.

Forest fan it is a penalty. Let's look at the key moment. Was this a

:14:22.:14:29.

handball? It is an accidental handball. The first time he knows

:14:29.:14:34.

where the ball is, that is not a good angle is when it hits the arm.

:14:34.:14:39.

How he gets booked for that is amazing, the referee gets back

:14:39.:14:45.

completely wrong. It is a debatable penalty. Kasper Schmeichel is

:14:45.:14:50.

furious, he did not know he was yellow-carded. According to what we

:14:50.:14:54.

saw and what we saw, he is booked walking back to the goal line

:14:55.:15:01.

because you can hear the crowd roar at the referee should have got

:15:01.:15:04.

himself into a position where Kasper Schmeichel was aware he

:15:04.:15:08.

knows he has been booked. The he should not have thrown the ball

:15:08.:15:13.

away. No but he would not have been sent off. That was the turning

:15:13.:15:21.

point. Under pressure, the momentum. For the first time and again, they

:15:21.:15:28.

look as if they miss something on the end of what they're doing.

:15:28.:15:32.

which it manager is the result better, it has to beat Steve

:15:32.:15:36.

McClaren. Of course. They are staring down the barrel with 20

:15:36.:15:40.

minutes to go. They have got themselves out of the situation to

:15:40.:15:44.

get a point after the game which looked as if it was getting away

:15:44.:15:52.

from them. It does it reduce pressure on Sven-Goran Eriksson?

:15:52.:15:57.

is fully aware he would be under pressure from the start. There is

:15:57.:16:03.

none better to handle that. Nottingham Forest can take heart

:16:03.:16:12.

from the change. Yes, it is particularly, Miller came on. They

:16:12.:16:17.

were able to get the ball up to him, he held on to it. Even if he did

:16:17.:16:23.

not win the initial first ball, it bounced in and around him. I think

:16:23.:16:28.

that is how they started to exert pressure which they had not done.

:16:28.:16:34.

Encouraging signs for Forest fans. Peterborough and Ipswich, posh came

:16:34.:16:44.
:16:44.:16:45.

up from the play-offs thanks to an unbeaten record at 16 games. A home

:16:45.:16:55.
:16:55.:16:55.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 145 seconds

:16:55.:18:03.

save, home side pinning back visitors. A good header and save.

:18:03.:18:08.

Two good chances but the keeper is equal to both. Where was the

:18:08.:18:18.
:18:18.:18:18.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 145 seconds

:18:18.:19:46.

of nothing. The goalkeeper gets it strike. What a strike by Taylor.

:19:46.:19:51.

Extraordinary. His first league start the Peterborough and he made

:19:51.:20:01.
:20:01.:20:38.

what a shot by Tom in. He did not for Paul Taylor. What a day. His

:20:38.:20:44.

league debut and two goals. The game has been turned on its head.

:20:44.:20:49.

Ipswich thought they had done the hard work taking the lead. Suddenly,

:20:49.:20:58.

their defence is falling apart. Two goals in two minutes. Ipswich with

:20:58.:21:04.

a mountain to climb. Had the game has changed. -- how the game has

:21:04.:21:13.

changed. This could be another one. It is! Ipswich are falling apart.

:21:13.:21:22.

For Peterborough, it's getting better and better and better. 4-1.

:21:22.:21:32.
:21:32.:21:42.

is a red. It has gone from bad to worse for Ipswich. Four goals down

:21:42.:21:49.

and ten men. He can have few complaints. He went right through

:21:49.:21:59.
:21:59.:22:16.

off. It can only get worse, it card and its which really are in

:22:16.:22:26.

disarray. There are now down to nine men. The captain of

:22:26.:22:33.

Peterborough has the chance to make it five. And he does! No mistake.

:22:33.:22:43.
:22:43.:23:04.

Beautiful finish. 5-1 to surely there will be more. Ipswich

:23:04.:23:14.
:23:14.:23:14.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 145 seconds

:23:14.:24:30.

hat-trick. It's which could not defy them. What a sorry afternoon

:24:30.:24:38.

for Ipswich. What a great afternoon for Peterborough. You do not see

:24:38.:24:43.

results like this coming. You dream about them, but you don't see them

:24:43.:24:49.

coming. A great day for us. To win it 7-1 at this level is fantastic.

:24:49.:24:57.

For me, it is horrible, but you know, it's embarrassing. We are all

:24:57.:25:04.

ashamed. We have been trying to strengthen and improve the defence

:25:04.:25:14.
:25:14.:25:23.

Will Peter Crouch struggle for goals having sold their top scorer?

:25:23.:25:28.

Yes. We got the answer today. This is what we imagined. The first

:25:28.:25:32.

train of thought is let us get forward and attack the opposition.

:25:32.:25:39.

We know we have got to defend, but we do like to attack. Everybody was

:25:39.:25:46.

willing to go forward. Some great goals and really entertaining. This

:25:46.:25:50.

was a fantastic performance. That was the first of two for Paul

:25:50.:25:57.

Taylor. The next goal was the best of Tomlin's hat-trick. Even at 4-1

:25:57.:26:02.

up, they would not take their foot off the gas. They do not think like

:26:02.:26:06.

that. They just want to keep going. They might concede a couple along

:26:06.:26:10.

the way, but they will try to get another two of three. They are

:26:10.:26:16.

hungry for goals and they really put Ipswich away. It has been quite

:26:16.:26:23.

a journey for their manager. We it has been a chequered career so far,

:26:23.:26:33.
:26:33.:26:39.

so we - Max -- shall we say. One of the players felt a drugs test. --

:26:39.:26:47.

failed a drugs test. As for Ipswich, they have conceded 12 goals in the

:26:47.:26:57.
:26:57.:27:01.

last couple of games. Incredibly, they are on the back foot already.

:27:01.:27:08.

The manager bought a players and everyone thought they were decent.

:27:08.:27:14.

The way they finished last year under his tutelage, they finished

:27:14.:27:21.

well. He described his team as weak and shambolic. We cannot argue with

:27:21.:27:25.

that. It has been very poor. They have to tighten up and give

:27:25.:27:30.

themselves a chance in games. The pressure will get heavier and

:27:30.:27:34.

heavier. It will be an interesting few days between now and when the

:27:34.:27:43.

transfer window closes. Now, Southampton, Brighton and Derby are

:27:43.:27:53.
:27:53.:27:57.

or are nine points. Southampton had a victory over visitors Millwall.

:27:57.:28:03.

Saints have taken to life in the championship straight away. They

:28:03.:28:07.

may be looking at back-to-back promotions. They started well

:28:07.:28:17.
:28:17.:28:43.

what could be called the coastal Derby. -- sea gulls. There was more

:28:43.:28:53.
:28:53.:29:05.

fun in the sun for Albion when a after the break. His 4th of the

:29:05.:29:15.

season was converted. Blackpool looked set for another defeat, but

:29:15.:29:25.
:29:25.:29:33.

a veteran striker gave them hope. Albion were made to pay in the last

:29:33.:29:43.
:29:43.:29:50.

Nigel Clough's Derby. Three wins out of three is a start his father

:29:50.:29:59.

would be proud of. It did not take long for the fans to have something

:29:59.:30:09.
:30:09.:30:11.

to cheer. Kill ban headed in his first golf for that club. --

:30:11.:30:21.
:30:21.:30:24.

Kilbane. Three rounds scored early in the first half and were intent

:30:24.:30:34.

on doing the same and the second. Davies had plenty of space. His

:30:34.:30:41.

cross was met high by Steve Davis, the goal coming just 15 seconds

:30:41.:30:46.

after the restart. Having set up the first two, it was only fair

:30:46.:30:56.
:30:56.:30:59.

that Ben Davies got his name on the score sheet. He did it in style.

:30:59.:31:05.

Derby delighted in winning their first format games. The players

:31:05.:31:15.
:31:15.:31:16.

have worked incredibly hard. Probably not playing as good -- the

:31:16.:31:19.

kind of for all we were playing 12 months ago, but they cannot be

:31:19.:31:26.

faulted for their effort. First time we have come off the pitch

:31:26.:31:32.

this season when we have not won, but we felt we do deserve something.

:31:32.:31:40.

There are no excuses. Fresh from Tuesday's dramatic leg win against

:31:40.:31:45.

Coventry, Crystal Palace arrived seeking their first away victory

:31:45.:31:55.
:31:55.:31:57.

since October. They got off to a good start. East there, he got the

:31:57.:32:07.
:32:07.:32:08.

midweek win against Coventry, did his best to claim this one as well.

:32:08.:32:18.
:32:18.:32:29.

-- Easter. Andrew directed his head at the wrong side of the bar. Three

:32:29.:32:33.

consecutive wins for Crystal Palace for the first time in a few years.

:32:33.:32:39.

It was a good performance today. We coped with everything that was

:32:39.:32:47.

thrown at us. Now got a good performance. We are not scoring

:32:47.:32:53.

goals at home. We did not create enough chances. We need to change

:32:54.:33:03.
:33:04.:33:05.

our style. Burley's new signing was present, but did not play. He has

:33:05.:33:11.

signed a two-year contract from West Ham. Austin did play there. He

:33:12.:33:17.

signed in January, but has been out injured. Now he is fit and scored

:33:17.:33:24.

after just one minute. Burley were looking for their first win of the

:33:24.:33:32.

season. They may have had a good shout for a penalty. However, the

:33:32.:33:42.
:33:42.:33:46.

referee was not impressed. That is how it ended. Burley still without

:33:46.:33:53.

a league win this season. -- Burnley. A put we were excellent

:33:53.:34:03.
:34:03.:34:04.

from start to finish. -- I thought. Unfortunately, one lapse in

:34:04.:34:12.

concentration and we paid for it. Barnsley still seeking their first

:34:13.:34:21.

win of the season. Reading were firm favourites, but it was the

:34:21.:34:27.

visitors who went ahead. The home side came close to a freak

:34:27.:34:35.

equaliser. 11 minutes after the break an incident that would bring

:34:35.:34:45.
:34:45.:34:45.

to life an extraordinary second half. A fantastic save after a

:34:46.:34:55.

penalty. 10 minutes later, deja-vu. Robinson Kalou weaved his way into

:34:55.:35:05.
:35:05.:35:06.

the box. Hunt took responsibility. Same corner, same outcome. Reading

:35:07.:35:12.

just could not get the ball in the neck. Alex peers failing to score

:35:12.:35:17.

as his header was hacked off the line. Halfway through the second

:35:17.:35:27.
:35:27.:35:29.

half, the result looks done and dusted. Incredibly, the drama

:35:29.:35:35.

wasn't quite over. There was still time for Reading to win. Another

:35:35.:35:45.
:35:45.:35:47.

penalty. Robson-Kanu stepped up for this one. Finally, Reading had a

:35:47.:35:56.

golf. Keith Hill can celebrate his first league win in charge. We have

:35:56.:36:00.

had to cope with quite a lot reasoning, but to get that result,

:36:00.:36:06.

hopefully it will carry us forward into the remaining fixtures. We had

:36:06.:36:14.

numerous chances to win the game, but we did not take them. Nicky

:36:14.:36:19.

Maynard has got all three of Bristol City's goals, including the

:36:19.:36:23.

two that beat Leicester during the week. He was hoping he could

:36:24.:36:30.

inspire a home win. None of May now's team-mates looked like

:36:30.:36:40.
:36:40.:36:40.

scoring until after the break. Pompey's midweek win at Reading was

:36:40.:36:50.
:36:50.:36:52.

their first in a while. It was ultimately a pretty chanceless

:36:52.:36:59.

encounter. Troubles on and off the pitch in

:36:59.:37:04.

Coventry. A group of fans demonstrating against the owners of

:37:04.:37:14.
:37:14.:37:15.

the club. What he did have the ball in the next four minutes before the

:37:15.:37:23.

break, but Yates was denied by the assistant referee's flak. Coventry

:37:23.:37:32.

had chances to take the lead themselves. Home keeper Joe Murphy

:37:32.:37:42.
:37:42.:37:42.

had a fine game, but should have been punished for a late fumble.

:37:42.:37:46.

Coventry and Leeds had their first point on the board. I don't think

:37:46.:37:51.

we played well in the first half, but in the second half it was

:37:51.:38:01.
:38:01.:38:07.

better. We grew in confidence and manager got a colossal team effort.

:38:07.:38:16.

They played very well today. They rode their luck had it at times.

:38:16.:38:20.

They were good penalties, possibly it was just the height of them that

:38:20.:38:28.

allows the goalkeeper to get across. Then they go up to the other end of

:38:28.:38:38.
:38:38.:38:41.

the pitch and score the winner! saw Blackpool get a terrific. Away

:38:41.:38:46.

to Brighton after being two goals down. Kevin Phillips, doing what we

:38:46.:38:51.

know he can be even at 38 years of age. Interestingly, he could have

:38:51.:38:56.

joined Brighton in the summer but turned them down. He is clearly

:38:56.:39:04.

enjoying his football. He just manages to pull away and it is a

:39:04.:39:09.

brilliant finish. It is that little bit of intelligence just to take

:39:09.:39:14.

you away from the normal and put you where you know the second phase

:39:14.:39:20.

ball is going to go. When you see at 38-year-old do it, does it get

:39:20.:39:25.

you? Of course, when the sun is out and the pictures are love - -

:39:25.:39:35.
:39:35.:39:38.

pictures are lovely, of course you want to go back. This was a great

:39:38.:39:44.

result. Yes, there has been an enormous turnover of players since

:39:44.:39:54.
:39:54.:39:57.

Nigel Clough went there. Mark O'Brien, an 18-year-old, he has not

:39:57.:40:01.

got huge amount of experience in the first team, but he is an

:40:01.:40:11.

interesting character. Only two years ago he had a heart operation.

:40:11.:40:16.

This is what football can do for you. It can pick you up. Now he is

:40:16.:40:22.

in a winning side and playing well. Derby have done that without having

:40:22.:40:32.
:40:32.:40:40.

five first-team players available. Douggie came to the club to try to

:40:40.:40:50.
:40:50.:40:52.

keep them and the division. He is taking on Palace. It looks like

:40:52.:40:57.

they will defy a few pundits. let's get to League One now where

:40:57.:41:00.

Charlton and Sheffield United were the only teams with maximum points

:41:00.:41:03.

after the first three games. The Blades had an away trip at Tranmere

:41:03.:41:06.

to contend with, while Chris Powell's men took on Scunthorpe at

brilliant - - 17 minutes remaining, they manage to score a goal.

:41:55.:42:01.

Scunthorpe have lost their 100 % record.

:42:01.:42:05.

Both managers agreed that this will be the biggest test so far for

:42:05.:42:12.

their clubs. Tran mere have six points and Sheffield United have a

:42:12.:42:19.

perfect record. Nick Montgomerie scored a fantastic goal. Danny

:42:19.:42:22.

Wilson was full of praise for the way his side dug in after that but

:42:22.:42:29.

on one of the few occasions they got caught, their substitute made

:42:29.:42:36.

sure that they paid for it. MK Dons boss Carl Robinson says he

:42:36.:42:44.

is still expecting bids for Sam Baldock, and you can see why. He

:42:44.:42:54.

opened the scoring. More from Sam Baldock to come, but Chesterfield

:42:54.:43:02.

levelled before the break. Scott Boden scored. At the Sam Baldock.

:43:12.:43:15.

He showed his predatory skills next, sliding in to score. Sean Williams

:43:39.:43:49.

played in Luke Chadwick. Sam Baldock had more spectacular plans

:43:49.:43:54.

for scoring his hat-trick. As stunning strike to cap a

:43:54.:44:04.
:44:04.:44:29.

performance of real quality. There courtesy of a not very bright start

:44:29.:44:37.

from a defender. The lead was wiped out in the second half when Clinton

Morrison's presence of mind meant that Julian Bennett's was able to

:44:44.:44:53.
:44:54.:44:58.

smash home for his club. Gary Madine scored. With 15 minutes to

:44:58.:45:08.
:45:08.:45:25.

points. Brentford have made as strong start. Niall McGinn put them

scored a stunning free-kick. He repeated the trick from a free-kick

:46:19.:46:24.

halfway through the second half. Marcus been smashed home the 5th

the worst for Leyton Orient since 1966.

but the team soon regained their exposure. They went in front after

not lost yet either, but this surely felt like to point they had

at this one. The Huddersfield boss answered his doubters within three

The only goal of the game came just before the break, something from

In spectacular fashion. North End extend their unbeaten run to four

something out of nothing, it is great. As for Scunthorpe, a bit of

relief. They were booed off the pitch when they last midweek. They

about Brian Lowe. They have got Andy Bishop back, which must be

like a new signing. Andy Bishop was good today. They played some great

stuff. They are another team here are playing the same way they did

last year. It is easy when you are dominating games to get on the poor

:55:19.:55:28.

and want to play -- get on the ball and want to pass it around. Pretty

:55:28.:55:34.

exciting times in League Two, especially for Rotherham. They are

hoping to win promotion before they move into their new home. There was

:55:48.:56:02.

They saved to enjoy the good times, you have got to endure the bat.

:56:02.:56:09.

Something Rotherham United know all about. It has been terrible. It has

:56:09.:56:14.

been very hard. Them is a bright new era beckoning and this club in

:56:14.:56:21.

recent years has twice been in administration, had been deducted

points and had to leave their ground. But hope springs eternal in

This is the planned new stadium, said to be ready in the nick of

time for them to play outside the boundaries. It is fantastic. Having

:57:23.:57:27.

gone into administration twice before I came on board, it wanted

someone to get hold of it and develop it. I have brought in

professional people, we work closely together. We have now got

:57:37.:57:42.

stability, growth and prospects. Describe what it has been like

:57:42.:57:47.

following your club over the last few years? A bit like a roller-

:57:47.:57:51.

coaster. There have been some highs, like the trip to Wembley, been the

:57:51.:57:58.

top of the league, and the times we have been chasing promotion. There

:57:58.:58:06.

have been the bad loans. Starting the season with minus 17. Just one

:58:06.:58:12.

minute. This says it all. Let's just take a look at that. I'm

:58:12.:58:19.

finding this whole experience rather surreal! A reminder of the

:58:19.:58:24.

heights for Rotherham have Skelt in the past. Today it is the 50th

:58:24.:58:27.

anniversary of their first participation in the League Cup

:58:27.:58:33.

final. Eight members of the squad are here today and they have not

:58:33.:58:37.

changed a bit. Well, not much anyway. Can you put into words the

:58:37.:58:42.

size of the achievement of rather than rich in that final? It was

:58:42.:58:48.

absolutely fantastic. Rotherham at the time were not a fashionable

:58:48.:58:53.

club, but they were a good family club. One for all and all for one

:58:54.:59:03.
:59:04.:59:18.

and that is how we are. We have a reaction. It came four minutes

:59:18.:59:24.

after the break. Troy Brown lashed in his first senior goal. Barnet

:59:25.:59:32.

were in no mood to roll over. McLeod took a tumble. The referee

:59:32.:59:42.
:59:42.:59:54.

was in no doubt. Brown's agility on the goal line disallow it -- de

:59:54.:00:04.

sell-out eight two Paul Cushing. -- but goal line disallowed a two goal

:00:09.:00:19.
:00:19.:00:25.

Cushing. -- cushion. The fans are anxious. Well Alfie be

:00:25.:00:32.

here in 10 days' time? I hope so. He is a natural goalscorer. We have

:00:32.:00:36.

had a lot of interest, but they have been some players that have

:00:36.:00:41.

left and gone to Championship clubs for �1 million to are nowhere near

:00:41.:00:46.

as good as Alfie. As a manager, you want to keep your best players and

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:01:12.

Andy Scott is under no pressure to sell. He isn't. If the top scorers

:01:12.:01:20.

go, it will be on the Rotherham's terms and no-one else's. You throw

:01:21.:01:24.

that into the next and they should have a good season. And do you

:01:24.:01:31.

think the added pressure that comes with the new stadium, is it an

:01:31.:01:36.

incentive or hindrance? I am not sure there is real pressure there.

:01:36.:01:43.

They have got a three-year deal and they will not to improve. I hasten

:01:43.:01:53.

to add, I am not sure how much of a hindrance the Don Valley is. They

:01:53.:02:02.

cannot get their quick enough. Les round off the rest of League Two.

:02:02.:02:07.

Crawley Town got off to a flying start and are favourites for

:02:07.:02:17.
:02:17.:02:24.

Calling have settled quickly in the Football League. A third

:02:24.:02:34.
:02:34.:02:46.

consecutive League looked a tall lined up. By half-time, the

:02:46.:02:52.

advantage was doubled. The scoreline did not flatter the reps

:02:52.:02:58.

who were encores for the top of the table. -- and reds. The match was

:02:58.:03:05.

as good as won. Crawley have racked up 34 league matches unbeaten and

:03:05.:03:10.

it will take more than Torquay's consolation goal to dent their

:03:10.:03:20.
:03:20.:03:39.

a valuable away win. However, a handball was spotted and Gibson got

:03:39.:03:49.
:03:49.:03:51.

a second yellow. The Kent side pressed on. Four minutes from time

:03:51.:04:01.
:04:01.:04:09.

substitutes look Rooney made -- substitute Rooney made good. The

:04:09.:04:16.

victory was wrapped up just before they ended the game.

:04:16.:04:21.

Three straight defeats and not even a goal to celebrate. It has been

:04:21.:04:26.

another disastrous start for Hereford, but finally they had

:04:26.:04:31.

something to cheer about one day were ahead of the Dons after eight

:06:22.:06:32.
:06:32.:06:57.

You can see why John Still was on points from 12.

Burton Albion were getting sick of sharing the points after six

lead in the first goal. Tom Pope got the third goal. The job was

:09:13.:09:42.

side managed to get their noses in resilience we have shown, but also

:09:42.:09:46.

the type of football we have played. We have got a really good spirit in

:09:46.:09:52.

the team and you need that to come to a place like this and come back

:09:52.:09:55.

and win the game. We are disappointed, but we will have a

:09:55.:10:05.

good look at it and sees - - see he needs to be told how to defend, and

:10:05.:10:15.
:10:15.:10:17.

that is not just the defenders. Few can match Dario Gradi for

:10:17.:10:24.

experience, but Shewsbury's boss also started managing in 1978.

:10:24.:10:33.

Turner brought in for fresh faces. Sean McAllister got the opener.

:10:33.:10:38.

Nick Pal's involvement lasted just nine minutes. It was a straight red

:10:38.:10:47.

card. The railway men are enduring the worst start to it a season in

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:11:09.

We have got a week now we're making it to an ice carving cup-tie on

:11:09.:11:15.

Tuesday and all that brings with it. Players will be in great heart for

:11:15.:11:21.

Tuesday after the result today. get the feeling that Dario Gradi is

:11:21.:11:27.

going to need all his years of experience to get crew out of this

:11:27.:11:37.
:11:37.:11:50.

year in the FA Cup and they gave Torquay a bit of a roasting then,

:11:50.:11:57.

and they did it again today. Chilling and are unbeaten after

:11:57.:12:00.

four games. It is amazing how things have changed in the year for

:12:00.:12:07.

them. This time last year, it took them 16 games to win the amount of

:12:07.:12:17.
:12:17.:12:20.

games they have already won this year! They look like they're in for

:12:20.:12:30.
:12:30.:12:35.

a good year because they finished in a row. Not bad for a team that

:12:35.:12:40.

were third favourites to go down. They had a good year the year

:12:40.:12:47.

before last, but not so good last year. This will be one of the

:12:47.:12:52.

smallest budgets in that division. We are seeing some real quality in

:12:52.:12:58.

the second division. Closer to fantastic strikes. They have

:12:58.:13:05.

started extremely well. Jim Bentley is finding this managerial lark

:13:05.:13:15.
:13:15.:13:15.

Saturday's results means as far the league tables are concerned. In

:13:15.:13:19.

nPower League Two, new boys Crawley climb to the top of the table after

:13:19.:13:22.

that win we just saw at Torquay and because of Rotherham dropping

:13:22.:13:25.

points at home to Barnet. Gillingham are level with those two

:13:25.:13:28.

sides. Morecambe and Dagenham have also made good starts to the season

:13:28.:13:31.

with three wins from four. At the bottom Dario Gradi's Crewe are the

:13:31.:13:34.

only side that remain pointless in League Two after losing their

:13:34.:13:37.

opening four matches of the season for the first time since 1981.

:13:37.:13:39.

Hereford, Plymouth and Bradford all have one point apiece.

:13:39.:13:42.

As for League One, MK Dons are top after that win over Chesterfield

:13:42.:13:45.

and that's because Charlton and Sheff Utd were both held to draws

:13:45.:13:48.

on Saturday. Brentford have also climbed the table after that

:13:48.:13:50.

hammering of Leyton Orient. And Orient stay bottom and pointless

:13:50.:13:54.

after their worst start to a season in 46 years. There are still five

:13:54.:13:57.

other teams yet to win in League One including Hartlepool who have

:13:57.:14:00.

drawn all four games so far. Southampton and Derby are the only

:14:00.:14:03.

sides in the Football League with 100% records. It is the first time

:14:03.:14:06.

Southampton have ever won their opening four league games of a

:14:06.:14:09.

season and the first time for Derby since 1905. I should mention

:14:09.:14:12.

Brighton and Palace, who have also made encouraging starts to the new

:14:12.:14:16.

campaign. While at the bottom, Doncaster are the only side without

:14:16.:14:19.

a point and that goalless draw between Coventry and Watford did

:14:19.:14:22.

neither side any favours on Saturday as both of them are still

:14:22.:14:27.

looking for their first wins. Now, before we go, don't forget to re-
