3.00pm: Kick-off in all our games except at the KC Stadium.
Bit of pre-match news at Barnsley, with the club reportedly to make a decision on their new manager tomorrow, with caretaker-boss David Flitcroft leading the side in today’s derby at Leeds.
3:14pm: After a slow start, we finally have a goal. Bradford 1 Oxford 0. Midweek cup heroes’ stellar time of it continues. Nahki Wells nets easily after a collision between U’s keeper Wayne Brown and ex-Leeds United man Michael Duberry. 17th of a prolific campaign.
3:18pm: Lead doesn’t last long for Phil Parkinson’s men. Sean Rigg restores parity with a 20-yard screamer for the U’s, managed by one-time Bantam Chris Wilder. Bradford 1 Oxford 1.
3:21pm: Blow for the Millers as visiting Barnet, fresh from last weekend’s 2-0 win over Bradford City, take the lead through Jake Hyde. Rotherham 0 Barnet 1.
3:34pm: A setback managerless Barnsley could have done without with the lively Jim O’Brien being stretchered off with a nasty-looking head injury. Still Reds 0 Leeds 0, despite the hosts dominating.
3:45pm: Against the run of play, the Hornets strike, with Boro paying the penalty for missed chances in their search for a fifth successive Riverside league win for the first time since 1998. Matej Vydra nets his 13th of the campaign after seizing upon Rhys Williams’ clearance. Boro 0 Watford 1.
3:45pm: Joy for Lee Clark on his return to Town as Callum Reilly fires in a rebound following Huddersfield target Chris Burke’s cross to put the baby Blues - besieged by injuries and fielding a host of fresh-faced teenagers - in front. First goal of his fledgling career. Not good for Town, this. Town 0 Birmingham 1.
HT: Barnsley 0 Leeds 0, Boro 0 Watford 1, Town 0 Birmingham 1, Blades 0 Yeovil 0, Stevenage 0 Doncaster 0, Bradford 1 Oxford 1, Cheltenham 0 York 0, Millers 0 Barnet 1. Small beer in our eight games so far, a collective total of just five goals to write about. Memo to sides at half-time - must do better.
4:02pm. We are off again for the second half and hopefully more goals..Apparently, O’Brien on crutches on Reds’ bench.
4:08pm. We have a goal at the Lane, not necessarily one the Blades will have wanted. Paddy Madden, who missed the game’s best first-half chance, gives the Glovers a surprise lead following good work by ex-Rovers man Byron Webster as the visitors aim to do what Hartlepool did on Boxing Day and claim a shock win. Blades 0 Yeovil 1.
4:20pm: Close to the hour mark, only one of our home sides have found the net so far. Bravo Bradford...
4:23pm: First goal at Broadhall Way and it comes from the hosts, without a home win in their previous five. Greg Tansey’s corner finds its way to James Dunne, who rockets home an opener. Away-day specialists in trouble. Stevenage 1 Rovers 0.
4:25pm: Suddenly, a goal flurry. York go behind at Whaddon Road as stingy hosts Cheltenham, who net through Shaun Harrad. Cheltenham 1 York 0.
4:25pm: Huge goal at Oakwell and it deservedly goes to the Reds, seeking to end their barren streak at home and avoid a club reocrd 12th game without a home win in the league in the process. A milestone strike for Chris Dagnall, who nets from the spot after a penalty is awarded after a foul on him from Sam Byram. His first goal in 25 appearances for the Tykes. Reds 1 Leeds 0.
4:26pm: Blades left with a mountain to climb. Horrendous mistake from George Long, who is caught in possession by Madden, who walks in his second. Blades 0 Yeovil 2.
4:28pm: Calamity for Leeds, whose travel sickness continues as Dagnall, straight after getting the goalscoring monkey off his back, nets another confidently after good work from Marlon Harewood as the Reds suddenly scent their first home win since September 1. Reds 2 Leeds 0.
4:36pm: Rovers on terms as they seek to extend their unbeaten streak away to a club record 12 games. Iain Hume forces home after Dave Syers’ shot is blocked. Stevenage 1 Rovers 1.
4:42pm: York draw level courtesy of Jason Walker as they suddenly look well set for a very impressive point. Cheltenham 1 York 1.
4:42pm: Watford double their tally at the Riverside through the impressive Vydra, with Boro left the mutter the if only’s. Boro 0 Watford 2.
4:45pm: An inauspicious afternoon at the New York Stadium continues as the Millers go two behind, with Andrew Yiadom netting for Barnet, on the cusp of their fourth win in six matches. Millers 0 Barnet 2.
4:51pm: A late sting in the tale for Bradford, who concede a late penalty in the 90th minute, duly converted by Peter Leven. Bradford 1 Oxford 2.
4:53pm: Rovers’ irresistible run on the road continues as defensive enforcer Rob Jones - sharing caretaker-boss duties with Brian Flynn - heads the visitors ahead following Dave Cotterill’s corner. An incredible seventh away win in eight on the cards. Stevenage 1 Rovers 2.
4:56pm: Consolation with a small c for Boro. Scott McDonald nets for the Teessiders, but it’s an opportunity lost. Boro 1 Watford 2.
4:56pm: Town claim a last-gasp leveller, courtesy of Adam Hammill, who in the final game of his loan spell, contributes with a key goal. Still, a chance gone for Town, whose winless run in the league is extended. Town without a league victory in just over two months, but a point better than none. Town 1 Birmingham 1.
4:57pm: Full-times starting to roll through. Barnsley 2 Leeds 0, Town 1 Birmingham 1, Boro 1 Watford 2, Blades 0 Yeovil 2, Stevenage 1 Rovers 2, Bradford 1 Oxford 2, Cheltenham 1 York 1, Millers 0 Barnet 2. Focus now turns to Tigers v Owls derby at the KC Stadium.
5:44pm: A breakthrough at the KC, but it goes not to the in-form hosts, but visiting Wednesday, with Reda Johnson heading in his fourth goal of the campaign.
6:07pm: Half-time. Hull 0 Owls 1. Is the manager of the month curse going to strike again...Hull 0 Owls 1.
7:00pm: All-square at the KC. Robert Koren glances in a superb cross from Elmohamady. Hull 1 Owls 1.
7:04pm: Horrendous mistake from home keeper Jakupovic gift-wraps the Owls the lead once again after he inexplicably fumbles the ball and spills into his own net. Hull 1 Owls 2.
7:14pm: Game over at the KC. Michail Antonio breaks away to net during seven minutes of stoppage-time following a bad injury to Jakupovic to seal the deal. Hull 1 Owls 3.
7:20pm: Deep into stoppage-time, Hull awarded a penalty after a foul by Jeremy Helan. But to put the tin lid on a wretched day for the Tigers, Chris Kirkland saves Jay Simpson’s effort.
