Round-up: Friday night EFL action

25 August 2017

The EFL weekend kicked off with three fixtures on Friday night, and there was no shortage of action.


Hull City recorded a 4-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers at the KCOM Stadium.

Leonid Slutsky’s side raced into a 3-0 lead in the opening period, with strikes from Adama Diomandé, Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki putting the hosts in a commanding position before the break.

They added the finishing touches to a fine home display in the 87th minute thanks to another Bowen goal.

Bristol City and Aston Villa had to settle for a share of the spoils at Ashton Gate, with proceedings concluding a 1-1 scoreline in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Jamie Paterson’s goal on the hour gave Lee Johnson’s men the advantage, but that strike was soon cancelled out by Josh Onomah, who levelled things up just six minutes later.



There was high drama at Meadow Lane, as Notts County and Accrington Stanley played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.

A penalty from Jon Stead and a excellent team move capped off by Jorge Grant either side of the break looked to have set the Magpies on their way to all three points.

However, Stanley fought back - a Mark Hughes goal set them on their way. Undeterred by a sending off for Mekhi McLeod, the visitors pushed forward, and got their equaliser in injury time through Mallik Wilks - just moments after Matt Tootle had been dismissed for the home side.
