LIONS HAVE A GRAY DAYMillwall 1 Yeovil 1 DARREN BYFIELDS late equaliser saved Millwall as Nigel Spackmans side battled back for a point despite a below-par display. The visitors had dominated the first half and deservedly led at the break after Wayne Gray converted Chris Cohens cross from close range. Byfield spared the home sides blushes when he headed home Tom Brightons cross in the closing stages for a barely deserved point. Referee Dermot Gallagher had delayed the start of the match following crowd congestion, but when the game got underway it was the visitors who looked the brighter. Anthony Barry tested new Lions goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley from the edge of the area, but the former Chelsea man made a comfortable save before Cohen sent a long-range effort wide. Derek McInnes had the home sides first clear-cut chance midway through the first half, but his drilled right-footed effort was blocked by Glovers goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall. A

t the other end Arron Davie

s fired wide and Gray sent a header the wrong side of a post. Yeovil broke the deadlock after 35 minutes as Millwall failed to clear Cohens cross from the left and Gray had the simple task of finishing at the near post. Byfield and McInnes looked to get the home side back into the game with long range efforts, but Yeovil looked the more likely to add to their lead as as Davies effort forced another save from Pidgeley. Byfield almost levelled just before the break, but he headed wide from close range. Yeovil began the second half as they had ended the opening period, as Matt Harrold headed over from a Davies corner and Zak Whitbread blocked Barrys long range strike. Mildenhall saved well from a Filipe Morais free-kick, and Skiverton was again on hand to rescue his side as he bravely blocked Byfields strike. As Millwall continued to push for an equaliser Mildenhall beat away Brightons left-footed effort. Har rold and Kevin James had chances to seal the game for Yeovil as the half progressed but they failed to find the breakthrough and were punished as Byfield headed his side level eight minutes from time. Bomouth 0 Chesfield 3 BOURNEMOUTH goalkeeper Gareth Stewarts second half howler helped Chesterfield to a comfortable win. His attempt at clearing a Paul Shaw through ball allowed Colin Larkin a free run-in to score the second, and decisive, goal of the game. Derek Niven had given the hosts the lead just after the break, when

he finished from 20-yards with a half volley from Kevan Hursts cross. Caleb Folan completed the scoring at the death when he latched onto Shaws through ball and turned the ball around Stewart. The Cherries miserable afternoon started badly when skipper Marcus Browning limped off after six minutes with a calf injury, with James Hayter heading their best chance wide from 10 yards. Brentford 1 Blackpool 0 A SLICK second-half performance gave new Bees boss Leroy Rosenior his first three points of the season. A74th-minute strike from Icelandic international Oli Skulason was enough t

o clinch the points for a new look side which lost half its first team regulars in the summer. The midfielder pounced in a busy goalmouth to side foot home after the Bees had struggled to impose themselves in a hard fought clash. Before the break it was Blackpool who looked more likely to score, with Keith Southerns diving header bounc

ing to safety off the inside of the post. Rookie Brentford keeper Clark Masters was the hero. The 19-year-old twice denied clear cut chances as Blackpool threatened to run riot. But the home side stepped up the pace after the break and Gavin Tomlin almost scored but screwed his Bristol C 1 Scunthorpe 0 ENOCH SHOWUNMI came off the bench to mark his City debut with the winner. But it was a different story for Scunthorpe substitute Steve Torpey - who was sent off against his old club after 80 minutes following a late challenge on Louis Carey. Showunmi broke onto a Phil Jevons flick after 69 minutes, and with the visiting defence appealing for offside rounded keeper Joe Murphy to shoot into an empty net. City deserved the points from an open game, having hit the crossbar twice through Steve Brooker and Cole Skuse. Scunthorpe never gave up, and Adriano Basso had to make a late one handed save to deny veteran midfeilder Ian Baraclough an equaliser. Carlisle 1 Doncaster 0 CARLISLE provided new manager Neil McDonald with three points in f

ront of Brunton Parks largest opening day attendance for 35 years. But there were some anxious moments for the 12,000 crowd as Doncaster hit back to dominate large spells of the match. It took the Cumbrians just three minutes to open the scoring when Paul Murray broke to get on the end of Karl Hawleys cross and finish from close range. Doncaster should have levelled within a minute when the home defence was caught sleeping, but keeper Kieren Westwood timed his advance perfectly to beat away striker Paul Heffernans effort. Rovers took a firm grip on the match, and when Westwood was beaten by two Graeme Lee headers, Paul Arnison and Chris Lumsden were on the line to hack the ball away. Crewe 2 Northampton 2 CREWES Ryan Lowe fluffed his chance of sealing a dream debut with the winning goal. The former Chester winger blazed straight at keeper Lee Harper with just seven minutes to go after enjoying a man-of-the-match display which saw him score the opener and set up the second. The late miss marred his first start for the Alex. Lowe got Crewe off to a flyer, cracking an 18-yard volley past Cobblers keeper Harper. Scott McGleish turned in Pedj Bojics cross to pull the visitors level. Lowes firm cross allowed David Vaughan to plant a firm header home to restore the lead, but Andy Kirk poked home a low Bojic cross to equalise before the break. Gillham 2 Huddersfield 1 DEAN McDONALD proved an instant hit for Gillingham, bagging his sides all-important second goal to get the season off to a flyer. The 20-year-old scored the Gills second goal just after the hour to extinguish the Terriers challenge. A rare Huddersfield attack saw Gary Taylor-Fletcher combine with newboy Luke Beckett after 13 minutes, but the evergreen Ian Cox cut out the return ball. After the break, Gillingham got the goal their dominance deserved as Matt Jarvis raced the length of the pitch to beat Matty Glennon. It was double trouble for the Yorkshire side, as Gary Mulligan found McDonald eight yards out who turned neatly to grab his debut goal. Huddersfield grabbed a consolation late on as Taylor-Fletcher ghosted in at the far post to tap in Chris Brandons deflected left wing cross. Nottm F 1 Bradford 0 COLIN CALDERWOOD got instant lift-off in his career as Forest manager. But the promotion favourites had to survive a handful of scares as Citys new-look side just failed to snatch the point they deserved. Forests win came courtesy of a ninth minute goal from defender Julian Bennett, who converted a cross from sub Grant Holt, on as an early replacement for the injured Nathan Tyson. Forest could have made sure of the points late on when Mark Bower brought down Holt but Donovan Ricketts saved Neil Harriss penalty. After that City laid siege to the Forest goal and Paul Smith saved brilliantly from Dean Windass a minute from time. Tranmere 1 Oldham 0 A FIRST-HALF goal by Chris Greenacre gave Tranmere a win, but it was a sad start to the season for Oldham who had two men sent off late on. First to go was substitute Chris Taylor, who saw red in the 88th minute for bringing down Calvin Zola. And Neil Eardley followed in injury time for kicking the ball at Zola, who had been brought down by Chris Swailes. In a game of few chances, Greenacre headed into the top corner in the 25th minute after Kevin Ellison headed on Chris Shukers cross. Ellison then brought an excellent save from Les Pogliacomi and Greenacre should have doubled the margin four minutes after the break but failed to find the target from 10 yards. Swansea 1 Cheltenham 2 CHELTENHAM made a mockery of their whipping boys tag as they made a winning start to life following their promotion from League Two. Strikes from Kayode Odejayi and Grant McCann helped the Robins to a surprise win at the Liberty Stadium. Leon Knight pulled one back late on, but it was not enough to prevent it from being a miserable day for last years beaten play-off finalists. Swansea started brightly, but it was Cheltenham who took the lead three minutes after the

break when John Milligans long ball found Odejayi, who finished calmly. Things got worse for Swansea when Steve Guinans flick-on and a mistake from Kevin Amankwaah allowed McCann to slot home. Kevin McLeods run and drive was neatly headed home by Knight on 77 minutes but it was not enough to deny John Wards men a winning start. Rotherham 0 Brighton 1 ANY hopes the Millers had of making an early dent in the 被钱买山中之王打一肖 10 point penalty imposed for last years financial problems were thwarted by 10-man Brighton. Rotherham were totally devoid of attacking ideas, despite having eight players making their home debut. Brighton had carved out three good chances - for Alex Revell, Gary Hart and Dean Hammond - before taking the lead after 42 minutes. Debutant Revell was the scorer, curling home a superb right-footed shot after Richard Carpenters pass out to the left was headed infield by Tony Stokes. Revell and Dean Cox were both booked for their celebrations and a minute later Cox collected a second booking for a foul on Lee Williamson. Port Vale 3 L Orient 0 LEON CONSTANTINES double broke promoted Orient as Vale

recovered from a sluggish start to open up with a convincing victory. Orient showed no sign of nerves as they settled quickly to outplay the home side, and were unfortunate to see Gary Alexander and Wayne Corden miss chances. But Vale did carry a threat on the break, and they snatched the lead when Leon Constantine headed home from Akpo Sodjes cross. Sodje should have doubled Vales advantage on the hour when he shot too close to Glen Garner from Joe Cardles pass. But three points were in the bag 18 minutes from time when Constantine headed home a far post cross from Jeff Smith. Debutant Sodje cro

wned his tireless display six minutes later, when he drove in a lowshot from Paul Harsleys cushioned header.
