Sky Bet EFL: Matchday round-up

11 September 2016

Huddersfield Town remain top of the Sky Bet Championship after claiming a Yorkshire derby triumph over Leeds United.

Aaron Mooy was in the running for August’s Player of the Month award, and his fine start to the season continued with a fantastic strike to settle matters at Elland Road.

Newcastle moved up to second with their fourth straight league win, defeating Derby 2-0 on the road, while Barnsley are right behind them after picking up a 2-1 win at Preston North End, courtesy of Magpies loanee Adam Armstrong’s brilliant late goal.

There were further away wins for Birmingham City and Brentford, who defeated Fulham and Brighton respectively. Norwich overcame Cardiff in a five-goal thriller at Carrow Road, and Sheffield Wednesday also hauled in maximum points courtesy of a 2-1 win over Wigan.

Elsewhere, Bristol City fought back from two goals down to rescue a point at Rotherham, and there was drama too at Molineux, where Burton salvaged a point thanks to Will Miller’s late equaliser. QPR and Blackburn also shared the spoils, while Reading were victors against Ipswich on Friday night.

On Sunday, Nottingham Forest took a point from Villa Park after an 87th-minute Henri Lansbury goal. The home side went 1-0 down to an Apostolos Vellios goal, but Ross McCormack and substitute Rudy Gestede got two goals in as many minutes to put the Villans in front. Lansbury’s goal made it 2-2 at full-time.

Bolton Wanderers remain the top of the Sky Bet Leageue One table despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Milton Keynes Dons.

Mark Beevers gave the unbeaten Trotters an early lead, but Ryan Colclough’s second-half goal earned the visitors a share of the points.

Free-scoring Scunthorpe are on Bolton’s tails and have a game in hand. They put four past Southend without reply, with Player of the Month Josh Morris among the goals yet again for the Iron.

There were late goals at Fleetwood and Peterborough, where the visiting opponents both rescued points late on in 2-2 draws. Lee Novak got Charlton’s second at Highbury, while Posh were denied by a last-gasp penalty from Port Vale striker Alex Jones.

That scoreline was mirrored by Bristol Rovers and Rochdale, while the points were also shared in three other Matchday 7 fixtures. Gillingham versus Bradford, Millwall against Coventry, and Oldham’s clash with Chesterfield all ended in stalemate.

Bury’s Danny Mayor starred for the Shakers, netting late on to seal a 2-1 victory over Shrewsbury, while Sheffield United edged past AFC Wimbledon by three goals to two.

Northampton stretched their unbeaten EFL run to 31 games as they eased to a 2-0 win at home to Walsall, while it was derby day joy for Oxford — Chris Maguire’s double seeing them overcome rivals Swindon.

Plymouth Argyle climbed to the Sky Bet League Two summit after picking up a fifth straight EFL victory.

Goals from Graham Carey and Jordan Slew helped the Pilgrims to a 2-1 win over Cambridge, while Portsmouth defeated Wycombe 4-2 in an entertaining affair at Fratton Park to go second.

Luton were top at the start of play, but they were sunk by an Omar Bogle double as Grimsby came away from Kenilworth Road with maximum points.

James Coppinger made his 500th Doncaster appearance as Rovers travelled to Morecambe, and the script was perfectly written as the midfielder notched the final goal in a 5-1 rout. Accrington, Barnet and Hartlepool were also victorious on the road.

Colchester overcame Blackpool 3-2, Stevenage defeated Crawley 2-1, and Crewe saw off Exeter 2-0 to all climb the table, while four goals were shared at both Brunton Park and Rodney Parade.
