Weekend in numbers

12 January 2015

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

0 - Morecambe failed to score for the third home game on the spin, drawing 0-0 with Tranmere Rovers in Sky Bet League 2.

0 – Stevenage are still yet to lose a match against AFC Wimbledon, with Boro taking three points courtesy of a 2-1 scoreline. That was their fifth victory against the Dons, while the two other clashes have ended level.

1 - Chesterfield’s Charlie Raglan scored his first senior goal on Saturday against Port Vale, the club he spent his youth career with.

1 - Liam Hughes’ effort was Cambridge United’s only shot on target at Carlisle United, but it proved enough for all three points.

2 - Wycombe Wanderers picked up their second successive 1-0 win, and Fred Onyedinma has scored the decisive goal in each game.

3 - Southend United have now drawn their last three home games 0-0, after sharing the spoils with Plymouth Argyle.

3 - Walsall suffered a third home defeat on the bounce, going down 4-1 to Scunthorpe United.

3 - All three of December’s Manager of the Month winners watched their respective teams lose 2-1 at the weekend.

3 – Wolves triumphed 1-0 at Blackburn Rovers on Sunday and have now won three matches on the bounce at Ewood Park for the first time.

4 - Sheffield Wednesday inflicted a fourth successive defeat on Nottingham Forest by winning 2-0 at the City Ground.

5 – After a weekend hat-trick, Birmingham City striker Clayton Donaldson has netted five goals in his last two appearances for the Blues.

5 – Norwich City's Gary Hooper has scored five goals and provided five assists over his last eight appearances.

5 - Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray chose to hand debuts to all five of the signings he made last week when the Stags took on Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

5 - Those changes didn’t pay off for Murray, though, as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Brewers maintained their 100 per cent home record under his leadership with a fifth successive triumph at the Pirelli.

6 - Sheffield United saw off Preston North End 2-1 to halt their stretch of six matches without three points, and that was a first home victory since October.

6 - Northampton Town ended a run of six successive away losses, and a seven-game winless spell, by triumphing 2-0 at Exeter City. They were their first points on the road since September.

7 - Scunthorpe United are now seven unbeaten in Sky Bet League 1 having overcome Walsall 4-1. They have taken 17 points from a possible 21 in that spell.

8 – Cambridge United are eight without loss against Carlisle United following a 1-0 weekend win.

8 - Bob Peeters was dismissed as Charlton Athletic head coach after he watched his side extend their run without a win to eight matches on Saturday, losing 1-0 to Brighton.

10 - Rochdale ended Bradford City’s 10-match undefeated run by beating the Bantams 2-1.

10 - Ipswich Town lost at Portman Road for the first time in 10 games, with Derby County running out 1-0 winners in Saturday’s early kick-off.

39 - Crawley Town striker Matt Harrold had to play in goal for over 50 minutes in the Reds’ match with Milton Keynes Dons after goalkeeper Brian Jensen dislocated his finger in the 39th minute.

50 – Wycombe Wanderers have now equalled their points tally from the entire 2013/14 season (50), following a 1-0 victory against York City.
