Sky Bet EFL: Matchday 6 round-up

4 September 2016

Bolton Wanderers maintained their lead of the Sky Bet League One table despite drawing their second game on the spin, against Southend United.

Harry Kyprianou's goal inside three minutes gave Southend the lead, before debutant Keshi Anderson netted an equaliser after half-time for the Trotters.

On a day that saw no goalless draws, Bury thumped Port Vale 4-1 at Gigg Lane in Matchday 6’s joint-highest scoring contest.

The Shakers, who hadn’t scored a first-half goal in the League until this point, went 3-0 up after just half an hour, and got another after the break to seal a comfortable three points.

In the day’s early game, Peterborough United and Swindon Town drew 2-2 in front of the Sky Sports cameras, while in a repeat of last season’s Sky Bet League One Play-Off semi-final, Millwall and Bradford shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at The Den.

Elsewhere, AFC Wimbledon recorded their maiden third-tier victory, beating Chesterfield late on, while Coventry City are still without a win this season - the Sky Blues fell 2-0 at Fleetwood Town.

The late goals are going in!

It looks like it’s going to be a first @SkyBetLeagueOne win for @AFCWimbledon!

Oxford United were also late winners; Liam Sercombe scored two minutes from time to see them past Rochdale.

On Sunday, the early kick-off saw Northampton Town extend their unbeaten league run to 30 games by beating MK Dons 3-2.

Gillingham hosted Sheffield United in the second live game on Sky Sports. The Blades made it two league wins in two thanks to a 90th-minute spot-kick from Billy Sharp to win 2-1.

Luton Town replaced Morecambe at the top of the Sky Bet League Two table following a convincing 4-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers at Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters took advantage of the Shrimps’ 2-1 defeat at home to Leyton Orient, with Danny Hylton grabbing a hat-trick in the process.

The most emphatic scoreline of the afternoon came at the Lamex Stadium, though, where Stevenage came from behind to beat Hartlepool United 6-1.

Pools took the lead inside four minutes, but Boro hit back in style, with on-loan Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker bagging two goals on his debut for the club.

RESULT OF THE DAY: A goal down inside four minutes, @StevenageFC then bounced back to hit @Official_HUFC for six!

There were also big wins for Blackpool, who prevailed 3-0 at Yeovil Town, and Portsmouth, who swept Crawley Town aside by the same margin. 

Exeter City took the spoils in an entertaining game at Colchester United, winning 3-2, Plymouth Argyle clinched all three points late on against Cheltenham Town and Notts County came from two-down to take a point at home to Grimsby Town.

Cambridge United remain the only side in the Sky Bet League Two yet to claim a win, and Newport County’s match with Barnet at Rodney Parade was abandoned early in the second half due to poor weather conditions. The Bees were leading 1-0 at the time of the referee's decision.
