Classy old boys: Tomlin nails Cobblers, first Football League goal for ex-full-back, first loss for ex-boss and ex-defender leaves Championshop club after win, Marcus Maddison at Spennymoor
The talented striker bounced back from a first red card (at the hands of the referee who did his best to spoil a classy game yesterday) to get some assists and he was successful again at Sixfields on Saturday. It was Tomlin who was brought down to win the penalty that saw unbeaten Doncaster end Northampton’s unbeaten start to the season.
It wasn’t such a good day at this level for former Posh boss Steve Evans, whose Stevenage side lost their unbeaten record to a last-minute goal at Salford, but a better one for former Posh player Omar Bogle, who scored twice in Newport’s 4-0 win at Harrogate, and George Moncur who netted a penalty in leaders Orient’s 4-2 home win over Hartlepool.
And congratulations to ex-Posh full Frazer Blake-Tracy who scored his first Football League goal to help Swindon draw 1-1 at Stockport.
Matt Godden was an unlucky loser as he scored twice in Coventry City’s 3-2 Championship defeat at Hull City. The Sky Blues are bottom and just two places above them are Russell Martin’s Swansea who lost 2-1 at Middlesbrough.
Former Posh defender Dean Holden was in charge of Stoke City’s 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers but left the club last night to make way for new boss Alex Neil and his coaching staff.
Marcus Maddison was a second-half substitute for Darlington in a 1-1 National League North draw at Spennymoor.
