Lee Morris scores Derby's winner against Spurs
Alan Lee's goal for Rotherham this afternoon looked for a long time as if it was going to do the Clarets a massive favour. He gave his side a 1-0 lead at Wolves just two minutes before half time and they held on to that lead until the 70th minute.

Then they were hit with two goals in five minutes from Dean Sturridge and substitute George Ndah although the second was strongly contested as it did not appear to cross the line. Unfortunately Rotherham were unable to find an equaliser.

Tom Cowan scored his first goal for Peterborough during his loan period equalising for the Posh on 16 minutes within seconds of them having fallen behind at home to Wrexham. They came from behind a second time with just 20 minutes left but it was Wrexham who grabbed the winner with a penalty in the very last minute of the game.

Wolves may have benefited from a goal that didn't cross the line but that certainly wasn't the case at Pride Park earlier in the day as Derby beat Spurs 1-0 in John Gregory's first game in charge. Spurs keeper made a mistajke but the ball clearly crossed the line before Dean Richards could hack it away.

There was of course a Burnley connection with this goal, it was scored by Lee Morris who has been out of the side since the opening day of the season. Lee was a £3 million signing from Sheffield United and is the son of former Claret Colin Morris who played at the Turf in the early 70s and went on to have a successful career mainly with Blackpool and Sheffield United.
