This afternoon's results

Bit of a roller coaster, listening in the garden. Sheffield United went behind, then equalised again, but finally Newcastle did the business which means that the Blades are now below us on goal difference and not just goals scored. Wigan lost 1-3 at home which has brought their goal difference closer to us. Villa managed to get all three points against an apparently lacklustre Blackburn, which probably takes Villa out of the mix, but gives us renewed hope for the away fixture at Ewood Park.

The suprise of the afternoon was West Ham handing Arsenal their first ever defeat at the Emirates. It means that the Irons are just two points behind us, which means we need to keep piling on the points to make sure we're not overtaken.

Leamington won 4-0 at Cradley and with Romulus going down to Quorn by a similar score, the Midland Alliance championship must be within Brakes' grasp, possibly against the Gees Gees on Monday. It's going to be tricky getting to that match and to The Valley.
