Reading do love their late goals - we scored in the 98th minute to snatch victory against Preston, who started the day 3rd. That keeps up our good record against them. That now moves us ahead of Boro.

Orient have won their 3rd game in a row, which makes the table much better reading for us now as we're juat 2 points from the play-offs. Former Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher is now our manager - ironically, our next game is away at Plymouth!

Had forgotten Tranmere were playing Southend on Friday evening. It should have been a good chance for  a second win in a row, but it was only a 1 - 1 draw.  Tranmere are 18th now. Pleased with our local Rugby team Caldy in National 2 North. P7, W7.

Liverpool left it too late to win but maintain unbeaten start to the season.

Not that I follow the fortunes of Morecambe (but my builder does!) and to put Car Expert's  mind at rest, I noted from the regional news (Granada Reports) last night that Morecambe had won at the weekend.

One thing I didn't realise having just done one of the quizzes on the BBC website is that Morecambe's manager Jim Bentley is now the longest serving manager in the Football League (8 years). Nice to see they've stayed loyal to their manager despite finishing in the bottom half in 7 of the 8 seasons he's been in charge.

That cup draw could not have been any harder for us !! Wycombe 2nd in Div1 and Tranmere at 19th.

I'm just glad we avoided Plymouth this time...:lol:

Talking of whom, we're playing them tonight...:ph34r:

Championship leaders West Brom are 2-0 down at home to bottom side Barnsley. What's going on? :wacko:

QPR v Reading is currently 1-1. Puscas has scored his first league goal since August.

It's this new manager we've got. Plymouth are getting their revenge on him and we just happen to be on the other side...:( :P

No further goals for Plymouth, thank goodness. In the end, Tranmere conceded more goals with 5. Still, could be worse. If you're a Southend fan - 7-1 against Doncaster...

Reading earned a 2-2 draw with QPR. Couldn't get the late winner this time.
