The unbeaten teams in The Football League

18 September 2015

With the majority of Football League teams embarking on their eighth outing this weekend, only a small handful can still boast the unbeaten tag.

In fact, there are only three who currently possess it, and it comes as no surprise that they all either sit top or close to the summit in their respective divisions.

Brighton & Hove Albion

After surviving the Sky Bet Championship drop by a mere six points last term, Brighton have come flying out of the blocks in their first start to a League campaign under manager Chris Hughton.

The Seagulls have not tasted defeat after seven rounds of action, and they've only dropped the one point up until now, in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town last month.

Their key men in front of goal have been new signing Tomer Hemed and winger Kazenga LuaLua, who have notched eight goals between them so far.

The south coast club pay a visit to Molineux this weekend to face Wolverhampton Wanderers, in what is sure to be another stern test of their credentials as the division's only undefeated club.

Gillingham are also thriving in their first start to a season under a new manager, with Justin Edinburgh at the helm.

They sit top of Sky Bet League 1 with 17 points from a possible 21, having won five of their opening seven.

Only fellow high-flyers Coventry City have netted more goals than the Gills this season, but a solid defence has also been key to their strong start as they've only conceded four times – a joint-divisional best.

Paul Cook's Portsmouth side are the only other Football League side yet to taste defeat in 2015/16, but their record has suffered a few close shaves in recent weeks.

Pompey came back from three down to draw 3-3 with Morecambe at Fratton Park last month, and a week later they left it late to steal all three points in a 2-1 win at Luton Town.

Despite an unbeaten return, they've been held to three draws in their first seven games, against the Shrimps, Crawley Town and Accrington Stanley, meaning they sit third in the standings, one point off Leyton Orient at the summit.
