League One Results Round Up (August 23)
The Hatters secured a single goal (Steve Howard) victory over hapless Torquay United at Kenilworth Road. Delight for Luton who maintain their 100% start to the new campaign, but the result leaves Torquay United with just 1 point from their first 4 games and a '-6' goal difference already. Luton boss, Newell said admitted that they need to "learn to kill teams off".
Newly promoted Hull City maintained the pressure with a 2-0 win over Oldham Athletic at the KC Stadium in front of an impressive 16916 fans. Danny Allsopp and Stuart Green secured victory for the hosts in the first half.
Sheffield Wednesday came out on top in the Yorkshire derby against Huddersfield Town at Hillsborough, winning by a single Steve MacLean goal on 21 minutes. Understandably Owls boss Chris Turner was delighted with the win, where as Town boss, Peter Jackson, was dissappinted not to have a share of the spoils.
They couldn't win too often at home last season, but this year Peterborough United appear to have overcome their home jinx. This time they comprehensively beat Brentford 3-0 at London Road. Goals from Platt (20), Legg (46) and Clarke (53) were enough to claim 3 points and move up to 4th place in League One.
Bradford City seem to have adjusted to life in the lower league fairly well. They secured a nice 1-0 away win against Stockport County. Dean Windass secured the points with 14 minutes left.
Hartlepool United gifted Blackpool their first point of the season. It had started well enough for them as Williams scored on 24 minutes. Moments later they should have doubled their money, but hit the post with the goal gaping. But it all too much as Taylor equalised for the seasiders on 72 minutes.
Port Vale and Wrexham shared the spoils at the Racecourse (1-1). Honours even for Stephen Brooker (64) and then Holt (72) to take a point each.
A draw as well between Doncaster Rovers and Tranmere Rovers - 0-0.
I suspect that Swindon Town fans enjoyed their first away win of the season against near rivals Bristol City!! Henderson netted either side of half time with Doherty scoring for the home side right on half time.
Barnsley went to Bescot and came away with a 2-2 draw against Walsall. Vaughan and Conlon netted for the visitors, but responses from Fryatt and a last gasp euqualiser from Wrack denied Barnsley to take the points back to Yorkshire.
