A Josh Benson penalty earned our under-23s a point from a 1-1 draw at Leeds on Monday and it enabled us to keep close to the top two Nottingham Forest and Crewe Alexandra who fought out a draw when they met earlier in the day.

It was 0-0 at Forest and that result keeps them two points clear of both Crewe and us in the north group table of the Professional Development League although we have played one game more as we have against the two teams directly below us, Wigan and Barnsley, who are three and four points behind us although next team Hull need to be watched. They are also four points behind but have two games in hand.

Hull surprisingly went down to Sheffield United on Saturday evening. That result allowed United to jump ahead of their neighbours Sheffield Wednesday who weren’t able to follow suit on Monday; they fell to a 3-0 defeat against Barnsley. The other result in the northern group saw Wigan win 2-0 at Bolton who remain bottom with just three points from their seven games.

Watford have extended their lead at the top of the south group. They beat Colchester last Fruday to go five points clear with Coventry, in second place, unable to close the gap on Monday. They were beaten at Ipswich who are having something of a revival. Having lost their opening six games, Ipswich have now won three and drawn one of their last four and they have now moved ahead of three others in the league.

This week’s games get underway on Friday with Bolton travelling to Birmingham. The final fixture comes next Tuesday and that’s between Barnsley and second place Crewe. We are in action twice next week, the first of them in the league, and that’s against Sheffield Wednesday at Curzon Ashton next Monday afternoon.
