Lothar Matthaus was in his majestic prime when he arrived at Villa Park with Internazionale of Milan for a UEFA Cup encounter in October 1990. But anyone hoping to witness the dynamic German midfielder, one of the most lauded and decorated footballers the game has ever known, at his devastating best, was in for a sorry letdown; and the man to blame was Paul Birch.

It was with a typical sense of drama that Darren Anderton, the former England international, ended his 18-year professional playing career yesterday. He came on at Dean Court as a 56th-minute substitute and, 32 minutes later, scored the only goal of the game to give League Two strugglers Bournemouth a 1-0 win over Chester City and significantly enhance the Cherries' prospects of survival. Anderton, 36, played for Portsmouth, Spurs, Birmingham and Wolves and won 30 England caps.

Four days before the first anniversary of their previous win, Derby County at last tasted victory again, at the 37th attempt. Goals by Paul Green, scrambled in after 24 minutes when Matt Kilgallon headed towards his own goal, and Rob Hulse, midway through the second half, earned a 2-1 win over one of Hulse's former clubs, Sheffield United. Darius Henderson had levelled after Green's opening goal, but a sequence of 28 defeats and eight draws spread across Premier and Championship matches was finally put to rest by Paul Jewell's side.

Birmingham City striker Kevin Phillips scored late winners as a substitute in his side's first two Championship matches and was rewarded with a start against Barnsley. By the 12th minute he had repaid manager Alex McLeish's faith when the Tykes left him unmarked to head in Stuart Parnaby's cross, Phillips's third goal in three games.

Paul Jewell, having spent all of his summer imploring his players to forget last season, discovered that putting Derby's Premier League nightmare to bed will not be as easy as he might have hoped. Losing habits are hard to break, even against supposedly inferior opponents, and Jewell's team are some way from banishing their negative demeanour.

Time was that a trip to Lincoln City in the Carling Cup would have been an occasion for a club of Derby's pedigree to let a few senior players put their feet up and give the youngsters their head. Safe to say there will be no such thoughts in Paul Jewell's game plan when he takes his players to Sincil Bank on Tuesday evening. One game into a new season, the Derby manager is already feeling desperate to see any victory as something to celebrate, even against a team likely to struggle in League Two.
