Zoko: Celebrates Notts' opener against Pools

Zoko: Celebrates Notts' opener against Pools

At Meadow Lane, goals in either half from Zoko and Bishop, the second a fine strike on the turn, gave Keith Curle's Magpies victory over Pools.

Andy Robinson bagged a hat-trick as Tranmere won 3-0 away to Carlisle as, like Notts, they also made it two wins out of two to start the season.

Robinson turned in Joe Thompson's cross in the 12th minute, then fired home a free-kick seven minutes later to put Tranmere in charge.

His Brunton Park hat-trick came in the 66th minute with another free-kick.

Chris Brown's late goal gave Doncaster a 2-1 win over 10-man Bury as they came from behind at the Keepmoat.

Bury led after only five minutes when Joe Skarz headed in from a corner, but some great link-up play with Billy Paynter allowed Kyle Bennett to fire in the equaliser nine minutes before the break.

Bury then had Steven Schumacher dismissed for bringing down Brown in the 68th minute, and he punished them six minutes from time by firing in the winner.

Sheffield United bossed their game away to Coventry, but fell behind to Stephen Elliott's counter-attacking goal just after the hour, and had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the Ricoh thanks to Nick Blackman's 84th-minute equaliser.

Swindon got their first win as they cruised past Crawley 3-0, enjoying a little luck along the way.

Matt Ritchie's opener was intended as a cross but floated into the far corner of the net and Swindon survived a series of chances for Crawley before Tommy Miller fired in a second and Raffaele De Vita smashed in a third from close range at the County Ground.

Late goals gave Yeovil their first win as they beat Brentford 3-1 away from home.

James Hayter got Yeovil's first after 23 minutes, but Clayton Donaldson levelled before Hayter restored the visitors' advantage 10 minutes from time.

The unfortunate Tony Craig then scored an own goal to make sure of the points for Yeovil at Griffin Park.

MK Dons had a man sent off for a third straight game as Alan Smith collected another red card, but they seem to be getting used to playing a man down and still took a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth, with Daniel Powell cancelling out Lewis Grabban's close-range opener.

There were late goals for both teams as Portsmouth got a 2-2 draw away to Colchester.

Portsmouth led after half an hour when Luke Rodgers slid the ball home from Liam Walker's throughball, but Michael Rose's outstanding 30-yard half-volley levelled it before the break.

Magnus Okuonghae thought he had won it for Colchester when he turned in a corner seven minutes from time but new loan signing Jordan Obita rescued a point for Pompey on his debut.

Luke Murphy's 73rd-minute goal gave Crewe a 2-1 win away to Scunthorpe.

A fantastic strike from Ajay Leitch-Smith gave Crewe an early lead but Mike Grella cancelled it out in the 14th minute.

Paul Parry's 20-yard effort in only the fourth minute was enough for Shrewsbury to see off Preston 1-0 at the New Meadow.

Lucas Akins got the only goal as Stevenage won 1-0 away to Leyton Orient.

George Bowerman scored in the 79th minute to cancel out Youssouf M'changama's opener as Walsall salvaged a 1-1 draw at Oldham.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
