Having gone on a run of seven league games without defeat, our under-23s were beaten 2-1 last Monday by Premier League 2 Division 2 leaders Fulham who, with that result, have now gone five points clear at the top of the table.

Fulham pulled further away with second place West Brom drawing at Wolves. It does leave the top two some way clear with only one point separating the four teams who are third to sixth. Aston Villa and Stoke both have 18 points with us on 17 along with Norwich.

Middlesbrough were fourth from bottom before the last fixtures; now they find themselves bottom. Birmingham beat them to move ahead of them as did both Reading, who drew against Aston Villa, and Southampton who recorded a big 5-0 win against Newcastle.

I’m not sure what’s happened at Southampton but having picked up just two points from their opening seven games, they’ve now won their last three with this 5-0 win adding to a 4-0 win against Villa in their previous game.

The surprise news in Division 1 was Manchester City losing at Everton, a defeat that cost them the chance of going top. Wet Ham, winners against Liverpool, have moved ahead of them and now trail leaders Arsenal by one point.

You could say Arsenal were fortunate to get even a point when they were 3-0 down at home against Leicester as the board went up for stoppage time. They then scored on 90+1, 90+3 and 90+7 to earn a draw.

Well done to Derby. Still bottom of the league, they did get their second win of the season and a big win at that. They beat Blackburn 6-0. They were 3-0 up after just nine minutes which included two from Jack Stretton who went on to complete a hat trick. They are still four points behind Chelsea who are next to bottom.

After a week off, we are back to a full fixture list which gets underway tomorrow with our game at Aston Villa on Monday evening.

The player featured this week is striker Joe McGlynn.
