League One Round Up

League One Round Up

Grant Holt helped Norwich to a close, hard fought win over Oldham. This win plus Leeds drawing at Huddersfield means Norwich have opened their lead by two more points.Leeds were held to a 2-2 draw by Huddersfield. Gary Roberts scoring 5 minutes from time in a thrilling local derby.
Colchester failed to take advantage of Leeds draw as they also dropped points. Bristol Rovers won 3-1 and kept their own faint hopes of a play off place alive.
Swindon and MK Dons failed to score this weekend as they also both dropped points. Swindon drawing at Leyton Orient and MK Dons losing 1-0 at Yeovil. Paul Ince will be looking over his shoulder now as the Dons have clubs below them sensing a chance to close the gap with them.
Charlton had a fortunate last minute injury time goal help them win at Southend. Southend fought hard and were again undone in injury time as they had been on the previous tuesday.
Millwall also won thus joining Huddersfield on points. Their 1-0 win over Hartlepool keeping the 'pool in the danger zone near the bottom.
Carlisle beat Gillinham 2-0 with two Ian Harte goals and Brighton scored their first ever home win under Gus Poyet. They beat Exeter 2-0 to continue their fight against the drop.
Stockport County made a very good try at losing after taking a 4-0 lead. They allowed Wycombe back into the game and had to hang on desperately for a narrow 4-3 victory. Both teams are still rooted to the bottom of the league.
Best performance of the day though has to be Southampton's 5-1 win over Walsall. Even more impressive when you see Walsall had just won at Leeds prior to their trip to St Mary's. Walsall scored first in the 3rd minute before Saints totally outplayed them.

Yesterday we had a brilliant day. The atmosphere was good and even when the Saddlers scored we were never worried. Fully deserved the big win. Now we have a much tougher game game on our hands. Some good results all round for us yesterday.

I think your way too far behind to catch 6th spot, roll on tuesday its a massive game for both of us, would love another 3-1 win :-)

I'm sure you would Terrier24. We have had a couple of those this season as well so we wouldn't turn a win down by that score either.

Good day all round with some results helping the cause as well. Beat the Terriers and we will move up another place.
