On the opening day of the season, they were beaten 1-0 at Burnley. They followed this up with a 2-1 defeat at League Two side Bradford City on Tuesday.

Leeds
The Whites also lost their opening game of the season when they were defeated 2-1 at home by Derby County.
On Tuesday night, they bounced back with a comfortable 4-0 home win in the Carling Cup v Lincoln City.
