Last Friday, having fallen behind in the second minute of stoppage time, the under-23s rescued a point at Nottingham Forest with an Anthony Glennon equaliser two minutes later but we remain 11th in Premier League 2 Division 2.

We are still recovering from having lost the first three games of the season but two wins and to draws in the last four keeps us ahead of Birmingham and Sunderland along with Southampton who are floundering at the bottom with just one point.

Those two just below us, Birmingham and Sunderland, now have one and two points less respectively following their results last Monday with Birmingham, like us, picking up an away point but Sunderland losing at West Brom.

We have new leaders in the division. Aston Villa kicked off the week ahead of Fulham on goal difference, but Villa could only draw against Wolves which has allowed Fulham to go top with a win at Norwich. Villa have now dropped to third with West Brom, courtesy of that win against Sunderland going ahead of them.

Newcastle were the biggest winners in the division. They beat Middlesbrough 4-1 with Dylan Stephenson scoring their third to go clear as the leading scorer so far this season with seven goals.

There is no change at the top of Division 1. Leaders Manchester City beat Derby 1-0 with an early James Mcatee goal, his tenth of the season and the first player to reach double figures. Brighton and Arsenal were a point behind City but faced each other and it was Arsenal who came out on top with an easy 3-0 win.

The game of the week was that between Crystal Palace and Spurs. Palace were 3-0 up after just 24 minutes and the score remained at that until Spurs pulled one back right on half time. Then, just before the hour, a quick double drew Spurs level, but Palace were soon back in front, this time keeping their lead to win 4-3.

There are no fixtures this week because of the international break but we start again a week today. We are at home to Norwich. Please note this fixture was originally scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. on the Turf but will now be behind closed doors at Gawthorpe with a 1 p.m. kick off.

The player featured this week is midfielder Mark Helm who was signed from Manchester United ahead of this season.
