This Weekend's Winners And Losers

This Weekend's Winners And Losers

Leyton Orient remain top of the pile after coming from a goal behind to beat Brizzle Rovers 3-2 at the Memorial Stadium despite giving away two penalties. Martin Ling, an old mate of CC's must be pinching himself as they only just avoided relegation last season. They sit 4 points ahead of 2nd placed Tranmere who came from 2-0 down to scrape a draw at home to Northampton with an equaliser 2 mins from time.

Southend in 3rd spot beat lowly and managerless Port Vale 2-1 at Vale Park. Vale sit 2nd from bottom in the table level on points with basement boys Bournemouth, who lost 3-1 at home to Carlisle and below Millwall who lost 2-1 at home to Swindon.

Leeds United finally ran out of luck as managerless Gillingham sneaked a last minute equaliser to end the Yorkshire clubs 100% record. Leeds also had Kandol and Beckford sent off to leave them with only nine men on the pitch by the end of the game. Amaisingly, Dennis Wise is reporting the referee for swearing at him after the game! I wonder how many times he's swore at a ref? The words kettle and black spring to mind here.

And finally on to the Mighty Reds. 3-0 away at Yeovil. A third straight win, a third clean sheet and three goals to boot make it a cracking weekend for all things Tricky. This result sees us leap up to 8th in the table on 12 points and still with a game in hand on most. Next up for Colin and the lads, is a short trip up the M1 to Huddersfield on Tuesday night and a meeting with the Monkeyhangers of Hartlepool at home on Saturday. What with the Sheep only managing a draw as well, these are heady times to be a Red. Onwards and upwards folks.
