Garry's FL72 Review

The sacking of Notts County boss Chris Kiwomya

Kiwomya: given his marching orders by Notts County

Kiwomya: given his marching orders by Notts County

GARRY SAYS: I saw County against Wolves in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and they played particularly well in that game - they were vibrant and their passing and movement was good - but they couldn't transfer that form into League One - and when you go rock bottom of the league as a manager you are under intense pressure and perhaps expect [you're going to lose your job]. This job was a big chance for Chris and only he will know whether he is a number one or a number two but I'm sure he will take what he has learnt forward.

The secrets of table-topping Burnley's success

GARRY SAYS: Sean Dyche and his assistant Ian Woan are doing a great job at Burnley, probably because they had good teachers at Nottingham Forest. However, the scouting at the club is working - they look far and wide for players and try not to spend too much money - and the Turf Moor atmosphere is fantastic with the tight pitch and the supporters on top of you. Sam Vokes and Danny Ings' almost telepathic strike partnership is also key and if one or both of them got injured things could go wrong, but they have Dean Marney and Michael Kightly, too, a great defensive record and close teams down very well so they could stay up the top of the league.

League One high-flyers Leyton Orient and Wolves

GARRY SAYS: It was important for Orient to bounce back after their defeat to Coventry and they did that against Rotherham. A lot of people have been expecting the bubble to burst but Russell Slade has kept them at it and they are showing real desire and intent. Wolves have also been impressive; they were one of the big favourites to go straight back up to the Championship and that can work in different ways, but they have a good manager in Kenny Jackett and having Jamie O'Hara back in the squad and refocused is also a plus.

League Two bookends Oxford and Accrington

GARRY SAYS: Oxford have had a good start to the season and with the creative players they have in their team they are always going to get chances. They are top now but, at the bottom, Accrington have won two in a row. James Beattie - who has played at the top level, don't forget - was adamant he could turn his side's form around and his self-belief has been rewarded, and now they have closed the gap on everybody else around them.
