Sky Bet Football League weekend in numbers

13 April 2015

A first home win for Tony Mowbray, and a stunning goal from Demarai Gray - we take a look at the numbers that make up the weekend's Football League action.

0 - Blackpool remain winless on the road this term. Their 21st away trip, at Ipswich on Saturday, ended 3-2 to the hosts and that means they’ve still never won at Portman Road, in 12 attempts.

0 – There wasn't a single away win recorded in Sky Bet League 1 at the weekend. Seven of the 12 matches ended level, while the other five were won by home teams.

1 - Tony Mowbray picked up his first home victory as Coventry City boss as the Sky Blues saw off Colchester United.

3 - Darren Bent scored for the third successive match to grab Derby a point against Brentford. It was the striker’s 10th goal in 13 outings.

3 – Jermaine Pennant scored his third goal of the campaign for Wigan during their 2-2 draw with Fulham, and they’ve all come from direct free-kicks.

4 - The Sky Bet Championship promotion race continued in style as the top four all picked up maximum points over the weekend.

4 - York City took their win tally at Bootham Crescent this season to four, after their second successive 1-0 home victory. The result means the Minstermen are now unbeaten in five, keeping three clean sheets on the spin.

4 - Peterborough United’s goal drought continued when they failed to find the net at Swindon Town - their fourth match without a goal.  

5 - Stevenage notched their first ever victory over Northampton Town, after failing to beat them in the previous five clashes.

6 - Shrewsbury Town maintained their good form at the top of Sky Bet League 2 by notching their sixth successive win.

6 - Port Vale’s six-match losing stretch ended as they drew with Milton Keynes Dons.

7 - The top seven in Sky Bet League 2 all won on Saturday, while the bottom four all lost.

8 - Sheffield United are unbeaten in eight away games, going back to early February. On Saturday, they came from 2-0 down to earn a 2-2 draw against Oldham Athletic.

9 - Norwich City remain unbeaten on the road since Alex Neil’s appointment on 9th January, after their ninth away game under him ended in a 2-1 success at Bolton.

9 - Cambridge United failed to win at home again, being denied late on by Accrington Stanley to draw 2-2 and make it nine without success at the Abbey.

10 - It’s now only one win in 10 away games for Rotherham United following their defeat at Middlesbrough.

10 - A decade after being promoted from League 2, Yeovil Town suffered relegation back to the division on Saturday after failing to beat Notts County.

12 - Swindon Town were the only team in the top 11 of Sky Bet League 1 to win on Saturday, while six of the top seven shared the spoils.

14 - Middlesbrough’s 2-0 success against Rotherham United was their 14th home victory of the season, which is a Sky Bet Championship high.

14 - Sheffield Wednesday’s goal against Charlton Athletic was only their 14th of the season at Hillsborough - a Sky Bet Championship low.

16 - Shrewsbury Town won for the 16th time at Greenhous Meadow on Saturday, which is the best home record in The Football League.

20 - Since netting his first senior hat-trick in December, Demarai Gray hadn’t scored in 20 games before his a belter against Wolves on Saturday.

34 - Southend United goalkeeper Dan Bentley equalled Mervyn Cawston's record of 10 consecutive home clean sheets for the club - set 34 years ago - having not conceded at Roots Hall since 25th October 2014, against Bury.

89 - Bristol City moved onto 89 points at the top of Sky Bet League 1 after a 1-1 draw against second-placed Preston. The Robins are now unbeaten in 11, while North End haven’t lost in 14.

100 - Mark Cooper celebrated his 100th game as manager of Swindon Town by beating Peterborough United 1-0.

325 – Durrell Berry ended Cheltenham Town's run of 325 minutes without a goal by scoring against Wycombe Wanderers.

1957 - Callum Wilson made sure of Bournemouth’s Friday night victory with the second goal against Brighton & Hove Albion, to set a new club record for league goals scored in one season, passing the 88 netted by the Cherries’ class of 1957.

1968 - Shrewsbury kept their 21st clean sheet of the season, against Exeter City, equalling a club record which was set in 1968.

1984 - Cardiff City won at Leeds United to remain unbeaten against them since 1984 - a run of 17 meetings.
