Published Add your comment

Charlton and Leeds maintained their 100% starts in Coca-Cola League One by securing their sixth victories of the season this afternoon.

The Addicks remained top on goal difference as goals from Deon Burton and Lloyd Sam secured a 2-0 victory at The Valley that ended Brentford's unbeaten record.

Burton opened the scoring after 11 minutes following good work by Sam, who then doubled the lead by finishing off a flowing move on the half-hour.

Mike Grella put Leeds on the way to a hard-fought 2-0 win over Stockport at Elland Road before Lubomir Michalik added their second after 37 minutes.

Antony Kay hit a 78th-minute winner as Huddersfield twice came from behind to beat MK Dons 3-2 and move up to third after a thriller at stadium:mk.

John Barnes' dismal start as Tranmere manager continued as 10-man Rovers went down 3-0 at Carlisle.

Former Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd earned a point in his first match as Colchester manager as his new side drew 0-0 with 10 men at Alan Pardew's Southampton.

Goals were in short supply at Carrow Road for the first time this season as Norwich's clash with Walsall finished goalless.

A Terrell Forbes own goal gave Swindon a 1-0 win at Yeovil while Brighton saw off Wycombe by the same scoreline after a 75th-minute goal from Nicky Forster.

Simeon Jackson scored twice, once from the penalty spot, as Gillingham beat Exeter 3-0 with Luke Rooney also on the scoresheet. Jeff Hughes and Chris Lines were on target as Bristol Rovers saw off Millwall 2-0 at the Memorial Stadium. Hughes struck from the spot after 26 minutes with Lines doubling the lead just after the hour.
