League 1 Weekend Review.

League 1 Weekend Review.

It was the Mighty Reds who strode not so magnificently to the summit of the League 1 table, thanks to goals from Junior Agogo and Lewis McGugan in the 2-0 home win over Port Vale. The defeat for the Valiants sends them joint bottom with Bournemouth on 16 points. Not sure quite how long we'll be top, but let's make the most of it whilst we can, because it's Oldham on Boxing Day and we all know what happens when we go there. The Reds are top courtesy of the fact that the game between Swansea and Carlisle was called off.

Lucky Leeds were at it again with yet another late goal. This time Jonathan Howson popped up with his first goal of the season in the 84th min to give them a 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers. The win takes those lucky lads up to 3rd and only a point behind us, but we do have a game in hand.

Leyton Orient had to settle for a point at home to a resurgent Yeovil in a 0-0 draw, whilst our Boxing Day opponents Oldham picked up their fifth away win on the bounce by beating Sarfend 1-0. It was their first win at Roots Hall in 35 years and looks as though they are ominously finding their form just in time for our visit. Nice.

Our other bogey team Walsall gave Millwall a good pasting with a 3-0 win at home. All the goals came in the first half with Mooney grabbing a brace and former Red Neil Harris scoring an OG on the stroke of half time. These are not happy days for the Lions as they sit precariously just a point above the drop zone. The win puts Walsall in a playoff spot in 6th. Luton picked up a vital three points at home to Tranmere, with Reds target Dave Edwards getting the goal on 70 mins.

In other games Bournemouth lost 4-1 away at Northampton and Cheltenham lost 2-0 at home to our New Years Day visitors Huddersfield. All in all, not a bad weekend to be a Tricky. Merry Christmas from all at Vital Forest.
