After the weekend of 8/9 March with only three of our Men United home teams losing out of 24 teams, we are appearing to be somewhat of a lucky charm for Football League clubs up and down the country.

Starting in League 2 this week, Accrington Stanley pulled out the stops, with James Beattie's men beating league leaders Chesterfield 3-1. First half hat-trick hero, Lee Molyneux, gave the type of performance worthy of a place in the Men United first team.

Bristol Rovers, Mansfield Town and Morecambe also recorded wins on Men United match days.

At Morecambe, prostate cancer survivor John Keogh (pictured) lead out his heroes just before kick off. Earlier in the week, John attended the Morecambe FC press conference and met manager Jim Bentley.

In League 1, Brentford kept up the pressure on their promotion rivals with a 2-0 against Bradford. Elsewhere Peterborough and Stevenage recorded Men United home team victories.

Only Shrewsbury were unable to get a win for Men United last weekend losing 2-3 to to Bristol City.

And finally, in the Championship, the performance of the day was at the iPro Stadium, the home of Derby County.

While we were disappointed the Rams didn't win in front of their fans (apart from Forest fans in the office), we were delighted to see our partners Millwall FC, resplendent in Prostate Cancer UK sponsor shirts, earning a much needed three points. Lions' striker Morisson scoring the only goal of the game in the second half.

Like Derby, Birmingham City went down at home to QPR. We salute the Blues for their support before and on our match day.

With a Prostate Cancer UK logo patch on their shirts, we hope an auction next week will raise more money to add to our collection on the day.

Blackpool also went down at home to AFC Bournemouth while Yeovil Town, no doubt spurred on by Viva Pitch, the club's girl band who have released a single with sales going to the charity.

This week the Men United team heads to yet more games. Check out if you are at one of our matches, and if you are not and want to be then get in touch.
