We take a look at the numbers that make up the weekend's Sky Bet Football League action.

1 - Derby County inflicted a first home defeat of the season on Watford to move clear at the summit of the Sky Bet Championship. The Rams have now lost only twice in 18 games in all competitions.

1 - Bristol City's unbeaten home record was ended by Preston, who won 1-0 at Ashton Gate. That was the Lilywhites' first victory at Bristol City since May 2000.

3 - Southend tabled their third consecutive win to move within three points of the automatic promotion places in Sky Bet League 2.

4 - Bradford's four-game run of 2-1 scorelines was ended as they drew 1-1 with Gillingham.
