Brentford v Derby It has been a disappointing start to the season for Brentford, of that there can be no doubt. For all that an away win over Middlesbrough was a great outcome for Thomas Frank’s Bees, a home loss to Birmingham and home draw to Hull are just the type of results which they…

Southampton v Man Utd I’ve been pro-Southampton for a couple of weeks now and they’ve started to play the way I expected them to at the start of the season. After a disappointing opening day defeat to Burnley, they went on to put a in a good performance against European Champions Liverpool and then beating…

It was nearly even worse for them but a late Ulrich Saltnes header managed to prevent defeat. As a result they are now level on points with Molde at the top of the table heading into this round…
