Weekend in numbers: Sky Bet EFL Matchday

1 December 2017

Round Two of the FA Cup leads to a reduced EFL schedule, but there's still plenty going on. We've crunched the numbers...

0 - Nottingham Forest and Bristol Rovers are the only sides in the EFL yet to draw a single game this season.

1 - There's only one Dermot Drummy. Tributes have poured in for the popular coach and former Crawley Town boss, who sadly passed away earlier this week.

2 - There are two League One and two Checkatrade Trophy fixtures taking place this weekend, with the FA Cup Second Round leading to a reduced EFL schedule.

3 - Three derbies take place this weekend. Derby County versus Burton Albion, Fulham versus Brentford, and Monday night's meeting between Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

4 - Ezgjan Alioski has four goals in four Leeds United games, heading into Friday night's clash with Aston Villa

5 - Wolverhampton Wanderers have won five Championship games on the bounce, holding a four-point lead over second-placed Cardiff City.

6 - Nottingham Forest's last six fixtures have produced alternating results between victory and defeat. WLWLWL - they'll be hoping the pattern continues at Ipswich Town on Saturday.

7 - Matej Vydra's terrific treble at Middlesbrough last weekend took the Derby County striker's tally to seven goals in six matches, but it’s now seven in seven after being shut out against Ipswich in midweek.

9 - Leon Clarke scored a phenomenal nine goals in four November games. What will December bring for the Sheffield United striker?

10 - Bolton Wanderers are unbeaten in their last 10 matches with Barnsley, winning half of those encounters.

78 - The number of seconds between Matt Smith and Luke Freeman's midweek goals for QPR, which rescued a stoppage-time point against West London rivals, Brentford.

100 - Brentford’s Monday night draw at QPR was Dean Smith’s 100th game in charge of the Bees.

105 - Sunderland had waited 105 days, since August 13th, to register a Championship victory, finally returning to winning ways in last weekend's success at Burton Albion.

2016 - Sheffield Wednesday and Hull City meet for the first time since 2016, when the Tigers secured promotion via the Championship Play-Offs at Wembley.

34,469 - The combined number of retweets and likes, at the time of writing, that Bristol City's Bobby Reid goalscoring GIF received. The forward netted the equaliser in the Robins' stunning comeback at Hull City.
