James Collins' strike saw Swindon win at Colchester

James Collins' strike saw Swindon win at Colchester

Swindon moved to just two points behind the npower League One automatic promotion places after James Collins' second-half strike sealed a 1-0 win at struggling Colchester.

Stevenage eased to a 2-0 win over Notts County thanks to Sam Hoskins' strike after just 38 seconds and Marcus Haber's 89th-minute effort.

Akpo Sodje's second goal of the game six minutes from full-time ensured Scunthorpe beat Portsmouth 2-1. Sodje had put the home side ahead five minutes before the break but Liam Walker equalised on the stroke of half-time. Second-bottom Pompey thought they had secured a vital point before Sodje the winner late on.

Oldham against Yeovil and Sheffield United versus Crawley were postponed due to snow and a waterlogged pitch respectively.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
