In last weeks’ review of Premier League 2 we reported that Burnley, Middlesbrough and Birmingham were the three teams in Division 2 without a point from their first two games.

Last Saturday, Middlesbrough beat Southampton just a day after Birmingham and ourselves had been beaten again, Birmingham at West Brom and us at Newcastle. Right now, we sit one place off the bottom with Birmingham having a goal difference two worse than ours.

Aston Villa, Fulham and Stoke had kicked off the week with two wins but none of them were winners. Stoke were beaten at Reading while Villa and Fulham fought out a 1-1 draw. It’s left four teams at the top with seven points, Newcastle and Reading joining Villa and Fulham with Newcastle top courtesy of a plus six goal difference.

Those four are the only unbeaten sides while Birmingham and ourselves are joined, both Nottingham Forest and Southampton in still looking for a first win of the season.

In Division 1, only Derby are without a point although they have only played two games. Five other teams, Leicester, Chelsea, Blackburn, Manchester United and Everton are still waiting for a first win.

No teams have maximum points in this league either and it is currently led by Manchester City and Brighton who both have seven points. City had the week’s hat trick hero too in their 4-2 win at Manchester United; James Mcatee scored three of them to add to the three he’d scored the week before when they won by the same score against Blackburn.

With no fixtures this week, the league resumes next Friday with Turf Moor staging a rare fixture at this level when we take on Wolves.

The player featured this week is central defender Jake Rooney who is now a third year scholar.
