The blog is back

Well, it’s been a while since I put much here, I started tweeting more, but I’ve spent today putting down some content for the rest of the month, here’s a sneak preview of what’s coming soon.

Around 8 of the above are in the bag already, so two to be worked on, and more to be laid down, time permitting.

Keeping up with writing match reports is hard, and available elsewhere, so I will go for a different angle for a while and see what develops. The blog (and Twitter feed) started around a year ago, and coincided with a return to form for the team (under Geraint Williams after the departure of Martin Ling) so now is a good time to get back on the blog after recent results.
Suggestions to further non-match related stuff welcome!

League One Ups, downs and Play-offs

2 May

The Live league table via sporting life.com


Scunthorpe took the last play-off spot with a late equaliser edging out their opponents Tranmere.
Millwall v Leeds (saturday) Scunthorpe v MK Dons

Orient kept 14th spot with a Dean Morgan equaliser against Huddersfield and Swindon missed out after leading 2-0 at Peterborough who came back to draw.
In the relegation zone, Carlisle started well with a 7th minute goal against Millwall and held on for a 2-0 win which took them above Northampton, who had the short straw today with a trip to Eland Road which they lost 3-0. A late winner for Brighton also secured their safety.

Well done to Brentford, Wycombe and Exter for automatic promotion from League Two. The fourth from the play-offs will be Bury, Gillingham, Rochdale or Shrewsbury.

League One Final Day Scoreboard

2 May

As things stand: Carlisle winning, Brighton winning and Northampton losing. Northampton (and Crewe) will be relegated.
If Tranmere win at Scunthorpe they will replace their hosts in the last play-off spot.
Play-offs: MK Dons v Tranmere, Leeds v Millwall (as it stands)
An Orient win or draw would see us take 14th spot, but defeat could see Swindon sneak above us.
