BREAK­ING THEIR DUCKS!

The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By John Lyons

BLACK­BURN, Rother­ham and Crewe are breath­ing eas­ier now – they’ve all notched their first League win.

Jor­dan Rhodes inspired Rovers to their first three-pointer of the cam­paign with two goals in their 3-0 romp against Charl­ton.

Rother­ham also broke their Cham­pi­onship duck. It took a 90th-minute own goal from Cardiff’s Matthew Con­nolly to gift Steve Evans’ men their first win bonus, tri­umph­ing 2-1.

Adam King struck in just the sec­ond minute as Crewe won 1-0 at Shrews­bury to climb off the bot­tom of League One. It means Terry Butcher’s New­port County are the only Football League club still seek­ing their first vic­tory.
