Weekend in Numbers

6 October 2014

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

1 - Bournemouth's 2-1 success at Bolton Wanderers was the only away win in the Sky Bet Championship over the weekend.

1 - Blackpool got their first victory of the season on Friday, beating managerless Cardiff City 1-0. Francois Zoko scored the all-important goal.

2 - Carlisle United continued their resurgence under Keith Curle by winning 3-0 at Hartlepool United, making it back-to-back victories under the former Notts County boss.

2 - Crawley Town found the net twice at Coventry City after previously not scoring in four on the road.

3 - Nottingham Forest, Charlton Athletic and Bristol City all drew to keep their unbeaten league records intact.

3 - Form counted for nothing at Roots Hall on Saturday, where Morecambe ended a run of three straight defeats by overcoming Southend United, who had won their previous four. The result means Southend are still yet to beat Morecambe in The Football League after nine meetings.

4 - Exeter City won 2-1 for the fourth time on the bounce, coming from behind to triumph at Dagenham & Redbridge on Friday night.

4 - Bradford ended a run of four winless games at home by beating Crewe Alexandra 2-0. The Bantams' two goals came over two second-half minutes.

13 - Eoin Doyle took his tally to13 goals in 11 matches for Chesterfield, including a run of nine in the Spireites' last six outings.

25 – Doyle scored in Chesterfield's 3-2 victory against Sheffield United – that was the club's first win against their rivals in 25 years.
