When last week’s Premier League 2 games kicked off both us and Birmingham were still looking for a first point of the season. We got ours in a 1-1 home draw against Wolves, but Birmingham, who were below us on goal difference, beat Sunderland.

It’s moved them one place ahead of us, but we’ve been kept off the bottom courtesy of Southampton’s poor record. They, like us, have one point, and their 3-0 defeat at Fulham has seen them score just once in their four games while conceding eight, leaving them behind us on goal difference. We are the only two teams without a win, but that could change this Sunday when we meet the newly relegated Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium.

No team has a 100% record in Division 2. Four teams kicked off the week with seven points but only Fulham, with that win against Southampton, were able to move onto ten points. Newcastle, Aston Villa and Reading were all beaten and that’s allowed both Norwich and West Brom, who had beaten Aston Villa and Newcastle, to move two points ahead of them.

The top two in Division 1, Manchester City and Brighton, were both winners, against Chelsea and Blackburn, and remain a point ahead of Arsenal who recorded a win against Manchester United.

Down at the other end of the table we find Derby on zero points, and that’s without having had any deducted. They and next to bottom Leicester have a game in hand. Leicester are one of four teams on two points along with Manchester United, Chelsea and Blackburn.

Leicester played in the final game of the week, taking a 6-1 home beating at the hands of Crystal Palace for whom all of David Omilabu, Robert Street and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi all scored twice.

The player featured this week is Dara Costelloe. The 18-year-old wide player was signed for Galway in February of this year.

Unlike the U18 league, there is a full fixture list coming up in this league between tomorrow and Monday.
