League one round-up: 17th December 2011

The latest weekend of the football league season has been and gone, the npower league one is rounded-up in this article.

Bournemouth 0-2 Sheff Utd
Bournemouth were the architects of their own downfall at home against Sheff Utd.

An own goal from Barrett (5) early on gave Sheff United the lead and then with time running out Cook (77) also scored an own goal to secure the visitors a 2-0 win.

Bury 1-1 Brentford
A late goal ensured that Bury came away with a home point in a draw against Brentford.

After a goalless first half Alexander (61) gave Brentford the lead just after the hour from the penalty spot. With Skarz (78) sent off for a second booking the hosts looked doomed to defeat but J-Lewis (85) made sure that Bury gained a point with a late strike to secure a 1-1 draw.

Carlisle 2-2 Wycombe
An early goal set Carlisle on their way but a late one was needed to ensure that Wycombe did not go home with the points.

Loy (2) put Carlisle ahead but by the time half time arrived Wycombe had turned things around to be leading 2-1 after goals from McNamee (28) and Trotta (36). With the hosts set for defeat Zoko (86) struck in the closing minutes to see the game end 2-2.

Charlton 1-1 Oldham
The points were shared between Charlton and Oldham at The Valley after a 1-1 draw.

Neither side could breakthrough in the first half but then Russell (60) put Charlton ahead on the hour. This goal looked to have handed the league leaders the win before Morais (84) scored to secure Oldham a point.

Chesterfield 1-1 Walsall
A last gasp strike gave Chesterfield a share of the points against Walsall.

Nicholls’ (29) goal just before the half hour had put Walsall ahead with this lead held until injury time when Lester (90) scored to earn Chesterfield a 1-1 draw.

Exeter 0-0 Scunthorpe
The points were shared at St James Park between Exeter and Scunthorpe.

Neither side could force a breakthrough so not only was the game drawn it was drawn 0-0.

Hartlepool 0-1 Colchester
It was a good weekend for Colchester again as they came away from Hartlepool with all three points.

Wordsworth’s (36) goal in the final 10-minutes of the first half proved to be the winning goal for The U’s, with that strike giving them a 1-0 win.

MK Dons 0-1 Preston
Home advantage could not help MK Dons who slipped to defeat against Preston, who sacked their manager during the midweek prior.

Notts County 1-2 Leyton Orient
Leyton Orient might have ended with 10-men although they still came away from Notts County with the points.

Dawson (44) struck on the stroke of half time to give Leyton Orient the lead with victory seemingly secured by Tehoue (85), who scored 5-minutes from time. Instantly L Hughes (86) pulled one back for Notts County but it was not enough as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat.

The visitors did lose a player in injury-time but McSweeney’s (90+3) sending off for a second booking did not alter the result.

Rochdale 0-0 Yeovil
Yeovil had a player sent off but still managed to come away from Rochdale with a valuable point.

Neither side could force the breakthrough so the points were shared in a 0-0 draw although Gilbert (77) was sent off for the visitors for a second bookable offence.

Sheff Wed 4-4 Huddersfield
An incredible game, which swung one way then the next, ended with Sheff Wednesday and Huddersfield sharing the points.

Two quick, early, goals from Rhodes (12 & 16) put Huddersfield into the lead although by half time R Jones (26) and Johnson (28) had Wednesday level with two goals in two minutes.

Just after the hour Marshall (63) then put the hosts ahead with a goal from O’Grady (74) seemingly securing the points. The visitors had other ideas though with Rhodes (77) completing his hat-trick to bring Huddersfield back into the game and when Rhodes (90+7) scored his fourth goal of the game a 4-4 draw was secured.

Stevenage 2-1 Tranmere
Stevenage played the final 20-minutes with only 10-men but still managed to secure a home win over Tranmere.

Beardsley (38) scored to give Stevenage a half time lead but May’s (70) sending off looked as though it would make the remainder of the game tough for the hosts, although then 10-men scored again with time running out when Roberts (84) struck. An injury-time penalty from Labadie (90+3) was not enough for Tranmere with the hosts running out 2-1 winners.
