Colaship Round-Up

That's Chris Iwelumo on the right having his bald dome shined by his mate Andy Keogh. Iwelumo scored a hat-trick for Wolves on Saturday. He was also sent off as Wolves beat Preston 3-1 at Deepdale. His goals (6) this season have fired Wolves to top of the Championship where they sit 3 points clear of Birmingham this morning.

The shock of the weekend came at St Andrews where Birmingham lost to Blackpool. Yep, read it again and it's still hard to imagine.
The only goal of the game came from Gary Taylor-Fletcher just after halftime. According to the match reviews the deficit could have been greater!
I think we will chalk that one down to an off-day!

Bristol City continued their impressive start to the season with a 4-1 thumping of Donny Rovers at Ashton Gate. Midfield maestro Michael McIndoe bagged a brace and record signing Nicky Maynard scored his second of the campaign.

Elsewhere, Coventry beat Q.P.R at the Ricoh with an Elliot Ward penalty after 15 mins and Palace lost at home to Plymouth who look as if they have turned a corner with back to back wins. A Paul Gallagher double did the damage and the defeat leaves Palace one place above the drop zone. Warnock's south Londoners have lost 3 of their last 4 games.

There were 3 goal-less games last Saturday played between Sheffield Wed and the 'Scum', Forest and Charlton and Southampton and Barnsley. Derby V Cardiff and Swansea V Barnsley both finished 1-1. In another score draw, Watford were raped by blind flag waver Nigel Bannister . You can read all about this in the post 'A Goal named Casper' here

That leaves just one result to mention. At mighty Carrow Road the super yellows beat Sheffield United 1-0. The game was in stopage time when Lee Croft surged down the right, played a neat one two with Hoolahoop before cutting inside a defender and thumping a left foot beauty into the top left. Get in Crofty!

Leaving it late...Super Lee Croft

Norwich are currently 11th. See the full table here.

Andy Keogh: not biting.
