Peters starts for Ipswich (at RB I think) and plays 90 in a 2-1 home win to Leeds

Hume starts and plays 90 in a 1-1 draw for PNE away to Reading

Jackson starts and scores in the 23 and 65 min for Norwich in a 3-0 win over Bristol City

Edgar not in the squad for Burnley

McCallum starts on the bench and stays their for Lincoln in their 1-0 away loss to Southend. Pity he can't seem to crack the first team after a promising season last year

Hoilett was a 85th min sub for Blackburn in their 1-0 loss Stoke


Haber starts on the bench, comes in on 77 min and scores his first league goal on 90 as St Johnstone beat Hibs 2-0 at home


Both Ricketts and Trafford start and play 90 as MyPa beat Mariehamn 2-1. Neither figured in the scoring

It looks like Hume set up PNE's goal. That makes 2 goals and and assist in four games since he joined up with them. Great move for him with immediate dividends for the nats if he carries this form into the Ukraine friendly.

He hasn't been called for the Ukraine friendly.

summary of the Norwich game:

"Norwich piled more misery on Bristol City with three goals and an easy win at Ashton Gate.

Simeon Jackson’s blistering shot put the Canaries ahead midway through the opening half, before Wes Hoolahan’s penalty doubled the visitors lead on 35 minutes.

Jackson sealed maximum points with his second strike on 64 minutes.

The victory keeps last season’s League One champions in third place, while The Robins have not won at home this term and sit rock bottom.

Robins boss Keith Millen made only one change, recalling Jamal Campbell-Ryce at the expense of Christian Ribeiro.

Norwich named the same starting 11 that beat Leicester in midweek, only for Adam Drury to suffer a warm-up injury that handed summer signing Steven Smith his first start since arriving from Rangers.

Andrew Crofts’ tackle denied Campbell-Ryce an early chance, after Korey Smith’s clearance was deflected in to his path.

Jackson put the Canaries ahead on 23 minutes.

Hoolahan’s through ball ricocheted in to Jackson’s path and the Canada international struck a shot with such venom that David James was rooted to the spot as it flew in.

Then Hoolahan hit a 25-yarder wide and, at the other end, Albert Adomah stung John Ruddy’s palms with a long-range shot.

When Grant Holt’s shot struck captain Louis Carey on the arm, Hoolahan added to his midweek brace by converting the penalty kick.

Only James’ fine save, to keep out Jackson’s far-post header, prevented Norwich from adding to their first-half tally.

The Robins replaced full-back Jamie McAllister with midfielder Lee Johnson at the break. And the sub almost scored with his first touch, but his shot from the edge of the area hit the crossbar.

Jon Stead was then inches away from connecting with Adomah’s cross, as the hosts pushed forward. However, this left the Robins vulnerable to the counter-attack.

Jackson beat on-loan defender Steven Caulker to the ball and then flicked it past the onrushing James, but his effort dribbled wide of the target.

But Jackson grabbed his second goal just a minute later. A long clearance by keeper Ruddy found the striker free in space inside the area, and he calmly slid the ball home.

Adomah looked likely to pull a goal back for the hosts, only for Smith to make a last-ditch intervention on 70 minutes."

Haber scored his first in the SPL.

Another change saw Marcus Haber replace the hard-working Parkin. Haber injected pace into the attack, giving Saints options down the left, taking pressure off the midfield.

But it was Hibs on the attack in the dying minutes as they searched for an equaliser with 3 minutes' added time to play - although they were totally unable to make any impact.

And Haber made the visitors pay for pushing so many men upfield - Dickoh caught sleeping at back, letting the Canadian through on goal from Enckelman's long punt, and he made absolutely no mistake with a superb shot under Brown to secure the points.




edit: It blows my mind that only 3,819 watched this match. To put that into perspective Seattle had nearly ten times that number show up to watch Sounders play lowly TFC.

Looks like Preston fans have been impressed by Hume. From the Observer Championship Verdict column

Preston North End 1-1 Reading

Was it a good match? They are a strong, very organised side with good wingers. They had Jon Parkin double marked after his antics during the week. I'm happy with the point and it's seven points from the last three games. We have three or four games after the international break that are going to determine our season and Fergie's future. Who played well/who had a nightmare? Iain Hume was great. He is a bit like David Speedie and he's always at players. I hope we can make his loan from Barnsley permanent. The ref was in charge of his first game in the Championship and he spoiled it.

Portugal - Liga de Honra

Santa Clara (Pacheco) 3 - 1 Sporting Covilha

Santa Clara won 3-1 at home for their first win of the season, in front of an incredible two hundred spectators, and with captain (??) Pacheco left on the bench. Maybe Pacheco will slip back into obscurity just as quickly as he arrived. To be fair, he may also be struggling to get back to full fitness, which may be De Jong's status as well. Either way, pity we have to rely on guys in this situation to fill key roles within our Ukraine squad.

Santa Clara: Matt Jones, Diogo Silva, Tengarrinha (Moreira, 46), Jeferson, Vítor Alves, Fajardo, Ilic, Nélson (Monteiro, 59), Bruno Monteiro (Alex, 45), Renan e Gabi.

(Suplentes: Filipe Mendes, Monteiro, Pacheco, Moreira, Fabeta, Renato e Alex).
