Weekend in numbers

27 January 2014

1 - Peterborough United were 3-0 up against Oldham Athletic at half-time but lost 5-4. That's the first time Posh have been defeated in their 54 years in The Football League after being three goals ahead. They also have just one point from eight away games in Sky Bet League 1.

2 - In that match, Britt Assombalonga scored his second headed goal in as many games. His previous 20 strikes for the Posh had all come from his boots.

2 - All four matches in the Sky Bet Championship featured two goals.

6 - Bristol City striker Sam Baldock has scored six goals in his past six Sky Bet League 1 appearances.

8 - After their 2-1 home triumph over Gillingham on Friday night, Brentford have now recorded eight consecutive home Sky Bet League 1 wins.

11 - Blackpool are now winless in 11 Sky Bet Championship matches after a 1-1 draw with Doncaster Rovers.

14 - In their win over Middlesbrough, Leicester were awarded their 14th penalty of the 2013/14 season. Shay Given saved David Nugent's attempt, leaving the Foxes' record at 11 scored and three missed.

18 - Febian Brandy scored a first-half hat-trick for Walsall at Notts County, his first goals in 18 appearances and his first ever career treble.

47 - Although there were only four games in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, it still took 47 minutes for the first goal to arrive when Rudy Gestede netted for Blackburn Rovers.

463 - Andy Halliday's 78th-minute goal for Blackpool at home to Doncaster was the Tangerines' first goal in 463 minutes of Championship football.

2008 - Scunthorpe United have gone 11 league games without suffering defeat for the first time in over five years.
