The 3-1 win against Reading two days ago didn’t move us up the table but it certainly closed the gap on a number of teams above us as we made it seven points from the last three games.

Fulham led the Division 2 table on goal difference ahead of the recent set of fixtures but despite winning 3-1 against Newcastle last Friday, they have now lost top spot on goal difference following Aston Villa’s win on Monday.

New leaders Villa won 8-0 at Stoke. Having gone in front on four minutes, it remained 1-0 until seven minutes before half time. Then, they scored six goals in a 19 minute spell either side of the break before adding a late eighth. Jaden Philogene-Bidace scored a hat trick with four of the other goals coming from the Chukwuemeka brothers, Caleb and Carney, who both scored twice.

Philogene-Bidace wasn’t the only player to notch a hat trick this week. Former Claret Will Harris scored all three for Sunderland in a 3-1 win at Wolves, giving them their first points other than the win against us.

Southampton, beaten 3-2 at Birmingham, remain bottom with just one point. Birmingham kicked off with just three points so this result has left Southampton trailing next to bottom by five points.

Division 1 leaders Manchester City met second place Arsenal with the game ending in a 2-2 draw. It was enough for City to retain the lead although Brighton, winners against Leicester, have moved ahead of Arsenal.

Chelsea beat Liverpool 4-3 to move off the bottom of the league; Derby now occupy that position. It was a good comeback too from Chelsea who trailed 3-1 going into the last 25 minutes with their winner coming in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

There was an even later goal at York’s new ground with Blackburn equalising in the seventh minute of stoppage time against Leeds to earn a point from a 4-4 draw. It wasn’t the quietest of games either with referee Gareth Rhodes showing nine yellow cards alongside a red for Leeds’ forward Amari Miller.

We’ve a full set of fixtures this week with us travelling to Nottingham Forest this Friday.

The player featured this week is Anthony Glennon who played at left-back in the win against Reading.
