Down the line: Headlines from the football league


Robins show the Nak to continue fine start

BRISTOL City are one of just three sides in the Championship to boast 100 per cent records after winning 2-0 at Stoke in their second league game of the season yesterday.

Nakhi Wells (pictured) put them ahead in first-half stoppage time before Andreas Weimann sealed victory late on.

The other perfect records are held by Reading — Yakou Meite and Michael Olise on target against nine-man Barnsley — and Luton, who made it two defeats out of two for Derby after Jordan Clark’s late winner.


Sammie isn’t too Posh to graft for the points

SAMMIE SZMODICS got the last laugh as Peterborough’s two injury-time goals sunk Joey Barton’s Fleetwood.

Jack Taylor had levelled for Posh before Szmodics struck and he said: ‘We grafted and grinded until the 94th minute and I’ve popped up with the winner, so it’s a great feeling.’

Rochdale and Portsmouth drew 0-0 in yesterday’s match, leaving both still searching for their first win.


Beech thrilled to have some fans at the party

BOSS Chris Beech hailed Carlisle’s 1,000 fans for generating a great atmosphere in one of the seven pilot games across the EFL.

Omari Patrick and Joshua Kayode were on target in the first half of a 2-0 win over Southend.

‘It was like a normal matchday with how they were, it’s so nice to hear the chants again,’ said Beech. ‘Any party needs a decent atmosphere.’
