Sky Bet Football League Weekend in numbers

30 March 2015

A goal in every game, including a late winner for Crewe's Ryan Colclough after 16 months out injured - we take a look at the numbers that make up the weekend's Football League action.

0 – No home team led at half-time in any of The Football League matches over the weekend.

1 - Theo Robinson scored in the first minute of his Scunthorpe United debut, at Notts County.

2 – Carlisle United's Troy Archibald-Henville was shown two yellow cards in two minutes in the Cumbrians' loss at Oxford United.

3 – Oxford's 2-1 victory saw them end a run of three games without a goal.

3 – Coventry City have found their feet on the road under Tony Mowbray, having notched a third successive away win on Saturday at Peterborough United.

4 – Crawley Town's Izale McLeod has netted in four successive games, after netting against Gillingham.

4 – York City's Jake Hyde has scored in four consecutive away matches, but hasn't bagged in seven appearances at home.

5 – Morecambe drew 1-1 at Exeter City to extend their undefeated away run to five outings.

5 – Rhys Bennett scored his fifth Rochdale goal at the weekend, all of which have come at home.

6 – Luton Town's torrid run was extended with a sixth defeat on the spin, at Northampton Town. It's the first time they've lost six in a row since 2007/08.

9 – Scunthorpe United's winless run was prolonged to nine games, after a 2-2 draw at Notts County.

9 – Barnsley are nine without defeat following a 2-2 draw at Sky Bet League 1 leaders Bristol City. The Tykes have shared the spoils in their last three outings, after winning six on the bounce before that.

10 – Portsmouth had won all 10 previous encounters at Fratton Park against Shrewsbury Town, before the Shrews ran out 2-0 winners on the South Coast on Saturday.

11 – Preston took their unbeaten run to 11 Sky Bet League 1 matches with a 1-1 draw at Lancashire rivals Fleetwood Town (W8, D3).

12 – Wycombe Wanderers secured their 12th away win this term, at Dagenham & Redbridge, which is more than any other Football League club.

14 – Crewe Alexandra won at Sheffield United for the first time ever, at their 14th attempt.

16 – Oldham Athletic's defeat to Bradford City means they have now gone 16 games without a draw -  the longest streak in The Football League.

16 – Ryan Colclough was the man who fired Crewe's late winner at Bramall Lane, which came after he had spent 16 months out through injury.

22 – Daniel Johnson's goal for Preston means the Lilywhites have now scored in each of their last 22 matches.

25 – Hartlepool United's fourth successive win moved them off the foot of the Sky Bet League 2 table for the first time since 25th October. On that day, they lost 2-1 at Cambridge United to sink to the bottom. On Saturday, they beat the U's 2-1 to move up to 22nd.

53 – The ball hit the back of the net 53 times in the 20 games played in The Football League over the weekend, with the exception of Bury's abandoned match at home to Southend United.

400 – Goalkeeper Kevin Pilkington made his 400th league appearance in Notts County's 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United.

19,672 – Sheffield United's clash at home to Crewe pulled in the biggest crowd of the weekend in The Football League, with over 19,000 in attendance at Bramall Lane.
