Yesterday’s 3-0 win against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane has taken the under-23s up to third in the table, still behind the top two of Nottingham Forest and Hull City but now ahead of Leeds United who were beaten at home by Crewe Alexandra.

1920 burnley adam phillips 00 500x500Leeds losing against Crewe was probably not the biggest surprise in the week’s fixtures. Wigan had secured an impressive 4-1 win at Watford last Thursday and were expected to record a fifth victory of the season against Birmingham yesterday but fell to a 3-0 defeat. That result has lifted Birmingham ahead of Barnsley on goal difference while also taking them past the two Sheffield clubs.

Forest beat Barnsley last Friday and Hull won last night at Bolton. They are two points and one point ahead of us but both have a game in hand while Crewe and Wigan are just two points behind with two games in hand.

Coventry still lead the south group. They’ve only played five games with their draw at Burnley the only occasion they’ve dropped points. Without a game in the last week, they could have lost that lead had Watford beaten Wigan. A three goal win yesterday for Bristol City against Colchester would have taken them top, but Colchester won that one to move out of the bottom two.

Both leagues still have a team without a point. Ipswich didn’t play this week but have lost all six games. Bolton didn’t start the season at the same time as the other teams but have now played three games and lost all three.

The northern group table won’t change in the next week. With the Premier League Cup getting underway, there is just one game and that’s in the southern group between Cardiff and Millwall.

The player featured this week is midfielder Adam Phillips who scored a stunning goal in yesterday’s 3-0 win at Bramall Lane.
