Vital Southampton's Take On League 1 This Week

Vital Southampton's Take On League 1 This Week

Beating Dagenham by three goals to nil they have moved up into third place in the table. Rhoys Wiggins starred as he made sure of the points after laying on the chances for the first two goals.

Brighton with a 2-0 win over MK Dons moved closer to the play-off positions. On loan LuaLua scored and then made the second to wrap up the points.

Peterboro came from 2-0 down to win 5-2. Headers from Jones and Taylor gave the Latics an early lead but Boro came back strongly to score five and finish comfortable winners. Wesolowski scored on half-time and then in the second half goals from Mclean,Boyd, Hibbert and McCann closed the game out.

Ten man Bristol Rovers were able to claim a point against Brentford due in the main to a fantastic performance from keeper Mikkel Andersen.

Charlton overcame a spirited Notts County side to edge the game with a Joe Anyinsah goal late in the game.

Colchester drew 1-1 with Plymouth who had Lee Molyneux sent off for two yellow cards just before the end. Colchester took the lead as they ruled the first half but a quick second half equaliser from Argyle left both managers slightly rueing missed opportunities.

In a see-saw game that saw both sides take the lead Exeter grabbed three valuable points at Hartlepool. Exeter scored first with a Hartley individual effort. Pool then scored two through Humphreys and Sweeney before O'Flynn scored twice for the Grecians.

An early goal from Scott Arfield gave Huddersfield the lead against Leyton. When they scored in the 78th minute through Rhodes they must have thought they were safe. Leyton came straight back though and Dean Cox set up a frantic finale but the Terriers managed to hold on to the three points.

Rochdale edged the game with a 3-2 win over Walsall.Macken scored first for Walsall before Thompson equalised and then Elding put the hosts ahead. Walsall equalised with a goal from Byfield before McDonald brought down Gary Jones. The Rochdale captain took this and duly scored to ease Dale to a win.

Yeovil started quickly and scored twice in the opening 10 minutes. Bowditch opened the scoring before Welsh added the second. Just past halfway through the half Huntingdon fired in the third. A last minute consolation was scored for Tranmere by Thomas-Moore from the penalty spot.

Swindon scraped past a tough Saints side with a second half tap-in from a loose ball in a scramble in the 65th minute. Though showing more form southampton were still unable to take any of the chances they made.

Overall Bournemouth and Peterboro were the biggest winners. Brighton also climb towards the top as the teams at the bottom continue to struggle. Swindon the exception with their win over Saints.
