Ex-Stokies: Jerome’s Joy
Cameron Jerome had a successful return to the Championship, as he scored in Norwich’s 4-1 win at Blackburn on Saturday.
The striker penned a new contract during the summer and will be hoping to replicate his scoring tally of two years ago, when he hit the back of the net more than 20 times. Ben Marshall was on the receiving end of Norwich’s thrashing, playing 90 minutes for Rovers.
Elsewhere, there were was a win for Karl Henry’s QPR, but Paul Gallagher failed to inspire Preston, who lost at Reading.
Ryan Shotton played the full 90 minutes in Birmingham’s goalless draw with Cardiff, and it was a same result for his previous team Derby, for whom Richard Keogh played.
Ex-loanee Stephen Kelly was involved in and exciting game for Rotherham, who threw away a two-goal lead to draw at home to Wolves.
In League One, Tom Soares helped Bury to victory over his old club Charlton, while Jamie Ness came on as a substitute in Scunthorpe’s win against Bristol Rovers.
Gabriel Zakuani made his first appearance for Northampton, who were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Fleetwood.
Danny Pugh picked up a booking on his Blackpool debut, as the Tangerines beat Exeter 2-0 in the bottom division.
Former youth teamer Andy Owens- now a striker, having converted from a centre back role- scored on his debut for Stalybridge Celtic. His strike was the only goal of their victory at Boston United in National League North.
And in the same division, John Eustace’s full-time managerial career got off to a flier as Kidderminster hammered Curzon Ashton 6-1 in their back garden.
Finally, Andrew Davies’ Ross County slipped to a 3-1 defeat at home to Dundee in the Scottish Championship.
