Hull City Cause Huge Surprise In Week 3

Outside of Division 1, there were some stand out games from the lower Divisions. Hull City from Division 3 arguably produced the result of the week, as they beat Derby County 1-0. Hull were one of the favourites to be relegated, with Derby looking to return to Division 2. The result has moved Hull from 6th up to 2nd in the table, in what has become a very competitive Division 3. It does not guarantee Hull safety, but it puts them in a very good place to push on for a high finishing position.

With an even bigger move upwards in Division 3, Leicester City jumped from 8th to 3rd by defeating Millwall 4-1. In our featured photo, Crystal Palace continued their run at the top of the table after beating Coventry 2-0. It took Palace a while to find a way to score, but a superb cross was met by a striker waiting on the far post to pop the ball into the net.

Wolves and Oxford produced another draw to leave them both mid-table with 3 points.

In Division 2, leaders Sheffield Wednesday stuttered as they lost away to QPR, dropping them to second in the table. Newly promoted Aston Villa took up the lead after they beat a struggling Leeds 2-1.

Manchester City finally found winning ways as they put three past Wimbledon, who did score a consolation goal near the end. The defeat leaves Wimbledon anchored to the bottom of the table.

Luton Town could only draw with Charlton as their bid to return to Division 1 faltered. Charlton are sixth in the table and playing well, but have bene unable to find a way to win league matches so far this season.
