So, as we succumb to Lincoln City in our first home game of the season, we take a look around the league to see how good or bad everyone else is doing.
Last weekend we touted the Accrington Stanley victory over Peterborough as the result of the week, so being fair we have to applaud the Posh for winning 2-1 against Fleetwood this weekend. With the seconds ticking away in injury time Posh were staring defeat in the face when they pulled it out of the fire with goals from Jack Taylor in the 91st minute and Sammie Szmodics with almost the last kick of the game in the 95th minute to send Fleetwood home well and truly gutted.
AFC and newly promoted Plymouth fought out an epic 4-4 draw, with Argyle twice in front before AFC squeezed out a 4-2 advantage, only for AFC to concede twice in a minute to share the spoils. Its hard to access AFC as they have played two promoted teams already and on the face of it look like they are going to score a few and concede a few as well.
Newly promoted Swindon went down 2-0 on the road to Blackpool, CJ Hamilton scoring both the goals either side of half time.
Ipswich sit on top of the table with the maximum points, but it took them until the 80th minute to break down Bristol Rovers and only then with an own goal, the Tractor Boys eventually making it 2-0 one minute from time.
Burton Albion beat Accrington Stanley last weekend’s Team of the Week 2-1, Brayford securing the points three minutes from time.
I’m wondering how Alex Gilbey is getting on at Charlton as they went down 3-1 at home to our last weeks opponents Doncaster. Rovers were 3-0 on the hour before Conor Washington scored a consolation goal for the Latics.
Oxford United sit at the bottom of the table, goalless and pointless with a 2-0 home defeat to Sunderland, O’Nein got the Black Cats underway with a goal just after half time, with Gooch putting it beyond doubt in the 82nd minute to claim the points.
Hull remain one of only three clubs with a 100% record alongside Ipswich and our victors on Saturday Lincoln City, Hull narrowly beating our opponents next week Crewe 1-0, Wilks scoring in the 81st minute to claim the points.
Northampton remain undefeated after the two games so far with a notable 2-1 victory on the road to Shrewsbury, Marshall and Hoskins finding the net for the Cobblers and Whalley in return for the Shrews.
The last game under the spotlight on Saturday was the visit of Gillingham to Wigan Athletic, the Gills running out 3-2 winners, Jordan Graham scoring a brace for Gillingham.
On Sunday Rochdale entertained Portsmouth in yet another 0-0 draw for Pompey, with again a high number of shots, and again failing to convert anything.
