League One >>
Brighton and Hove Albion 0 – 3 Leeds United
Former Leeds assistant Gus Poyet made an encouraging start to his reign as Brighton boss after a 2-1 victory away at Southampton in his first game in charge but his new charges came unstuck against a Leeds side surely destined for promotion.
Excellent goals form Robert Snodgrass, Jermaine Beckford and Neil Kilkenny ensured that Leeds remain the dominant force in League One.
In other League One results, Sam Sodje was sent off for Charlton before his brother Akpo scored to seal a 1-1 draw for their Charlton side at Yeovil on Saturday.
In a game that has often frequented a higher level, Southampton and Norwich drew 2-2. Stephen Hughes, on as a substitute, got the equaliser for the Canaries 15 minutes from time.

League Two >>
Dagenham and Redbridge 1 – 2 Rochdale
Dagenham and Redbridge dropped from first to third after being stung by two second half goals. Rochdale, third at the start of the game, moved up to second following the victory.
The Daggers dominated the first half and will feel aggrieved they didn’t add to Peter Gain’s third minute header.
Two goals in two minutes, from Kallum Higginbotham and Craig Dawson gave Rochdale a slightly fortuitous victory, after 70 minutes of Dagenham domination.
In other League Two results, Bournemouth went top following a 2-1 victory at Macclesfield. Big spending Notts County’s unconvincing form continued as they were held to a goalless draw at home to Aldershot, and Darlington remain rooted to the bottom of the table after a 5-2 thrashing at Chesterfield.
Barnet 0-0 Port Vale
Bradford 1-1 Accrington Stanley
Burton Albion 3-2 Hereford
Chesterfield 5-2 Darlington
Dag & Red 1-2 Rochdale
Lincoln City 0-0 Grimsby
Macclesfield 1-2 Bournemouth
Morecambe 1-0 Cheltenham
Northampton 2-2 Crewe
Notts County 0-0 Aldershot
Shrewbury 1-1 Bury
Torquay 0-2 Rotherham
In the midweek games in League Two, another top of the table class saw Bournemouth and Dagenham and Redbridge as both sides struggled to adapt to the poor playing conditions. Morecambe’s 4-0 win at Darlington was their biggest away win since promotion to the Football League and meant their opponents have conceded nine goals this week. Rochdale completed an excellent week’s work with a 2-1 victory over Notts County.
