Peterborough forward Marcus Maddison filed a strong by which, of course, we mean 'bloody risible' contender for the 2017 Fallon d'Floor award in Sunday afternoon's 2-2 draw against AFC Wimbledon.

The stirring piece actually consisted of two dives, performed within 10 seconds of one another, in which Maddison first threw himself to the ground looking for a freekick before simulating a headbutt from Liam Trotter and hurling himself back down to terra firma in mock agony.

Oldham are doing fairly well in their current manager-less state, as the Latics extended their unbeaten run under caretaker Richie Wellens to five matches with a gritty 1-1 draw against third-placed Bradford City on Tuesday evening.

However, they didn't get off to the best of starts at Valley Parade, falling a goal behind after just three minutes when Bradford winger Paul Taylor let rip with an absolutely ballistic thronker from 30-odd yards.

Despite dominating for much of the game, Coventry City's current inability to score goals ended up costing them again as they lost 1-0 to Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night.

The Sky Blues created the bulk of the chances on the night, but eventually slumped to a second successive defeat which saw their goalless streak extend beyond the 350-minute mark.

Continuing their fine start to the campaign, Notts County moved top of League Two on goal difference yesterday courtesy of a fine 4-1 win over Lincoln City at Meadow Lane.

Matt Tootle lashed home County's second goal of the afternoon, giving the jocular full-back the perfect excuse to bust out his now-infamous 'Slug' goal celebration

You know the drill: hands behind back, smear face into turf, pretend not to notice looks of incredulity from everybody else in the stadium.

Flying high at the top of League Two after an unbeaten start to the season, Pies reckon this is as good a time as any to give Exeter City a doff of the cap by taking a snoop around their stadium.

Not to be confused with Newcastle United's monochrome hulk (note the lack of apostrophe), St James Park is at least in part a throwback to a bygone age of football stadium design.

Exeter City have come flying out of the traps in League Two this season, currently sitting as they are at the very top of the table with five games played.

Obviously the results have been good, but it looks like the Grecians specifically their defensive coach Matt Taylor may also be dabbling in the occult to help get points on the board.

The Checkatrade Trophy continues to lurch from strength to strength, with this week's first round fixtures attracting miserly numbers in terms of derrieres on seats.

With all prestige being systematically siphoned from the competition by the EFL, Charlton drew the biggest crowd of the round on Tuesday when 1,307 fans turned out to watch their 0-1 defeat against Portsmouth.
