A week in League One & Two

by Adam Lord

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.

Midweek

There was a full programme of League One and Two action last night.

A last minute Max Gradel goal gave Leeds a 1-0 victory over Leyton Orient and gives them a six point lead at the top with a game in hand on Charlton who won convincingly 4-2 at home to Bristol Rovers.

League Two >>

Dagenham and Redbridge 1 – 2 Rochdale

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.

Midweek games

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.
