Hirst scored in the 53rd minute, making it 2-0, Sunderland scored their
consolation goal late on 2nd half.

Mark Robins had a career as a player at Leicester, coming back as the manager of Coventry on the first day
of the season. Leicester had no walk in the park as Mark Robins had drilled his
troups in the best way possible, taking the lead early 2nd half, but still had
to see a 1-2 defaet in the end.

Callum Wright started the game for Plymouth in their season opener, defeating Leicester’s next opponent Huddersfield, 3-1. Wright played until the 89th minute before being subbed. A great start for The Pilgrims as their return to 2nd tier football started with a win.

Cedric Kipre played from start for West Brom, in their first game of the season away to Blackburn Rovers. Watching the game you had a feeling The Baggies were the better team, but had to see themselves defeated
2-1 away at Ewood Park.

Brendan Rodgers is back at Celtic, and his start to the season couldn’t have been better with a 4-2 win at home to Ross County. He has also had a good pre-season, as a 1-1 draw with Wolves as a highlight. Rodgers gave 20 year old Norwegian midfielder Odin Thiago Holm his debut, playing 6 minutes towards the end.

Nick Powell was in the starting line-up for Stockport as they lost 1-0 at home to Gillingham. Matty James started and Andy King came on for Bristol City when they draw 1-1 at home to Preston. Nigel Pearson did not have former Leicester linked midfielder Alex Scott in his line-up as the highly talented England U.20 international was injured, as speculations of his future circled.

Gary Rowett and his Millwall came out of the first round with a great result, defeating Middlesbrough 1-0 away. The Lions could this season become a fast runner in the promotion race, just missing out on the play-off’s with one point in the prior.

A difficult start for Viktor Johansson and his Rotherham as he had to pick out four balls from his own net, being hammered 4-1 away to Stoke. Lee Peltier was a 2nd half sub for The Millers. Ben Hamer was an unused sub when Watford defeated QPR 4-0 at home.

A terrible start to the season for former Leicester defender Mitchel Clark and his Port Vale, as they were trashed by Barnsley, defeated 7-0 in the end. Clark left the field after the first half, being 3-0 down, so not a lot positives to report on.
