Unbeaten and with an unbreeched last line of defence Hull City came crashing down to earth on Friday night with a 4- 1 defeat on the road to Fleetwood Town and missed out on going top of the league. Two goals from Harvey Saunders (shown above), the first Hull had conceded in 377 minutes doing the damage, with further goals coming from Camps and Stubbs, and Honeyman getting a consolation for the Tigers.
The early kick off on Saturday saw our opponents next week Gillingham, who it has to be said are an improving side comfortably dispatched Robbo’s Oxford 3-1. Oliver and Mellis scored in quick succession for the Gills, Agyei pulled one back just after half time, and then Graham put it beyond doubt with 20 minutes to go to push Gillingham up into 4th spot, and Oxford drop into the bottom 4.
Result of the day goes to Bristol Rovers who defeated League leaders and the only team left with a perfect record Lincoln City. The Imps took the lead just after half time with an own goal by Baldwin, with Daly equalising two minutes later for Rovers. Hanlan put the Rovers in front from the spot on the hour mark and then Lincoln piled on the pressure for an equaliser which was hampered with Jackson getting sent off for a second yellow card which allowed Rovers to secure the points.
Ipswich slammed four past Blackpool with just one in reply, an Edwards brace did much of the damage with Chambers and Bishop completing the scoring, Madine scoring a consolation for the Seasiders as Ipswich move to the top of the table.
AFC scored a 1-0 win on the road to Swindon and go quietly about their business picking up points here and there, once again it was that man Pigott at the heart of things scoring the only goal of the game in the 28th minute, and yet again AFC being on the wrong end of the possession stats claiming just 34% of the ball.
Plymouth put away Burton without much fuss winning 2-0, Jephcott on the half hour mark and Moore just after half time scoring the goals.
Accrington won their third game of the season and continue to defy the pundits as they move into 6th place with a 2-1 home win versus Rochdale. Dale took the lead early in the second half through Keohane, but two goals in two minutes from Pritchard and Russell were enough to claim the points for Stanley.
In the Nene Derby Posh ran out 2-0 winners over the Cobblers at Sixfields with the main man Brett Huxstable in the middle, Thompson and Brown scoring the goals.
Crewe ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Wigan, Offord. Pickering, and Mandron all scoring in the first hour.
