FA Cup second round

It’s now 2-2 between Morecambe and Solihull Moors. Cole Stockton scored two goals in five minutes to put the League Two side ahead by the odd goal of three, but Jordan Cranston has just equalised for the non-League side.

Premier League

Liverpool still lead Brighton by the only goal of the game at the Amex Stadium, but Jurgen Klopp will be a mite displeased after seeing James Milner join the ranks of his side’s lame and halt. His faithful servant has just limped off with a hamstring injury.

Match report: Crystal Palace 0-2 Newcastle

Premier League: Newcastle took a pummeling against Crystal Palace for 85 minutes last night, before late goals from Callum Wilson and Joelinton earned Steve Bruce’s side three points they scarcely deserved.

GOAL! Brighton 0-1 Liverpool (Jota 60)

Premier League: Diogo Jota fires low into the bottom left-hand corner to score his ninth goal for Liverpool and put his side ahead at the Amex Stadium. You can follow the actino with Rob Smyth …

FA Cup second round

Morecambe are trailing to non-League Solihull Moors at half-time, while Gillingham trail Exeter City 1-3 as they approach the break. In the day’s other early kick-off, it’s scoreless between Newport County and Salford City.

League Two

After going behind to a Leon Legge strike in the eighth minute, Leyton Orient now lead at Vale Park courtesy of goals from Danny Johnson and Conor Wilkinson, where they’re in added time in the first half.


Brentford saw off QPR by the odd goal of three last night, while this afternoon pace-setters Norwich entertain Coventry City at Carrow Road.

League Two

The FA Cup means there are just two League Two fixtures today. In 11th place, Port Vale take on Leyton Orient, who are two points ahead of them in eighth. further down the table in 13th, Bolton Wanderers entertain bottom side Southend United, who are already six points adrift.

FA Cup second round

The possibility of a plum tie in early January against glamourous top flight opposition is up for grabs for those teams who emerge victorious this weekend and go into the FA tombola for Monday’s third round draw.

A total of 14 non-league clubs made it this far, but Brackley Town went out last night after losing by the only goal of the game to Tranmere Rovers. Three more are in action today, with Solihull Moors visiting Morecambe in the day’s early kick-off. King’s Lynn Town and Chorley are also taking on comparatively lofty opposition this afternoon.

Premier League: Manchester City v Burnley

The Etihad is the setting for a match in which Manchester City entertain Burnley with both sides in fairly desperate need of points. Eight points off the pace being set by Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, the hosts began the day in 14th, while Burnley are three places below them in the table.

Sean Dyche’s side are just the right side of the thick black line following their maiden win of the season, against Crystal Palace on Monday, but are four points behind Brighton, who are currently playing Liverpool in today’s early fixture. Kick-off is at 3pm, but stay tuned for team news and build-up from this top flight game and all the rest of the afternoon action.

Afternoon clockwatch

Welcome to our coverage of today’s action, much of which is already inder way. At the time of writing, it’s scoreles in the Premier League between Liverpool and Brighton in a fascinating game. Aaron Connolly missed a glorious opportunity to put Brighton head early doors, before his strike partner Neal Maupay missed a penalty. Liverpool thought they’d gone ahead through a Mo Salah goal, only to see the Egyptian’s effort ruled out for offside by the curtain-twitchers at Stockley Park.

In the Championship, it’s scoreless between Reading and Bristol City, while Port Vale have taken an early lead against Leyton Orient in one of two League Two matches scheduled for today. Some of today’s FA Cup second round ties are also under way and non-League Solihull Moors are already one up against Morecambe.

We’ll keep you updated on all the action from around the grounds, so stay tuned for team news, build-up, latest scores and post-match reaction.
