Saturday September 9th Review

We have played six games already now in this 2017/18 campaign.

Let’s have a look at the rest of the results from across the league:

Exeter City have been in fine form to start the season. The Grecians maintained their position at the top of the table by beating Forest Green Rovers 3-1 at The New Lawn. Reuben Reid bagged himself a brace, moving onto six goals for the season.

Accrington Stanley made full use of home advantage and comfortably surpassed Carlisle United 3-0. Stanley have the brilliance of Sean McConville’s right foot to thank as he scored two excellent goals, which secured Accrington’s fourth league win of the season.

Steveange’s unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Lincoln City. The Imps came from a goal down to win 2-1 at the Lamex, despite only having ten men for the majority of the second half.

Under Kevin Nolan, Notts County made their way up into the automatic promotion spots. Goals from Dan Jones and Jonathan Forte was enough to beat out of form Morecambe FC.

Down at the bottom of the table, things are looking gloomy for Port Vale and Chesterfield.

Port Vale were beaten 1-0 away at Coventry. The away side were undone by a fantastic long range strike from Coventry’s Jodi Jones.

As for Chesterfield, they were smashed 5-1 by Crewe Alexandra. Chris Porter netted twice for the Railwaymen who were rampant going forward all game.

One of the most surprising results of the weekend involved Luton Town and Swindon Town. Swindon came out 3-0 winners at Kenilworth Road in what was a shock result. Swindon end their two game losing run, whilst Luton slide down into 13th place after failing to record a win in their last three games.

Standout Result:

Our pick of the fixtures was Mansfield Town Vs Grimsby Town. The Stags came out victorious 4-1 at at the One Call stadium. It was a fierce encounter but the deadlock was broken in the 34th minute from a Lee Angol penalty. Mansfield defender Krystian Pierce doubled the home sides lead after latching onto a Joe Byrom corner. Pierce might try and claim the Stags third goal after his shot was deflected into the Grimsby net. The win was sealed in the 79th minute when striker Angol scored again from 12 yards after being fouled himself. Grimsby slide down to 19th, and Mansfield move up to 10th.

The games come thick and fast in Sky Bet League Two.

The next set of fixtures will be played on Tuesday 12th of September.
