Last Sunday’s 2-0 win at Southampton moved the under-23s three places in Premier League 2 Division 2 although a day later we dropped back one place when Nottingham Forest beat Birmingham City 5-0.

We are still 11th in the fourteen team league but we’ve now picked up four points from the last two games having previously lost the first three. It’s left Sunderland, whose only points came against us, and Birmingham a point behind with Southampton now three points behind us.

It’s close at the top with four teams all on ten points this morning with Fulham leading the way courtesy of the better goal difference. Forest were the big winners this week with that previously mentioned 5-0 win in which they had four different goalscorers.

Manchester City lead Division 1. They beat Crystal Palace 4-2 but there was no hat trick this week for James Mcatee although he did score two of the four to take his total for the season to nine which has earned him a first team call this week for the League Cup.

Arsenal are just a point behind after a big 6-1 win at Chelsea. Five of those goals came from Falorin Balogun who scored twice and Mika Biereth who went one better with a hat trick.

Chelsea are the strugglers. They are bottom with two points although only a point behind Derby and Blackburn.

We’ve got a full fixture list this week, kicking off today until Monday, in both divisions with us at home against Reading on Monday.

The featured player this week is Ne-Jai Tucker who scored the second goal at Southampton.
