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

0 – The 0-0 draw between Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton & Hove Albion was the only goalless game in The Football League.

0 – Not one of the 10 Sky Bet League 1 games over the weekend ended level.

1 - Rochdale's Joe Rafferty scored the first goal of his professional career, thundering home a 25-yard screamer in their 2-1 defeat at Peterborough United.
1 - David Martin scored on his debut for Stevenage as they beat Hartlepool United 3-1.

2 – Bristol City lost for only the second time this term in Sky Bet League 1, going down 3-1 to Sheffield United.

2 – That result saw the Blades notch back-to-back wins for the first time since October.

2 – York City sealed their second victory in 16 home matches this season courtesy of a 2-0, Wes Fletcher-inspired win against Tranmere Rovers.

3 – Nicky Ajose hit his third goal in as many games in Crewe Alexandra's 2-0 beating of Fleetwood Town.

4 - Bristol City striker Matt Smith found the back of the net for the fourth consecutive game at Ashton Gate, but the Robins lost 3-1 to Sheffield United.

4 – Walsall saw their unbeaten run of four games come to an end as Port Vale beat them 1-0 for their first victory in five outings.

5 – Dagenham & Redbridge are now undefeated in five following a 3-2 victory at Morecambe on Sunday.

5 – Gillingham tabled a fifth win in six in Sky Bet League 1 by overcoming Milton Keynes Dons 4-2. The reverse fixture at stadiummk back in August also ended 4-2.
