In numbers: Matchday 31

9 February 2018

Ahead of an action packed Matchday 31 in the EFL, we’ve crunched the numbers once again…

2 - There were two managerial departures after the latest round of fixtures, as Thomas Christiansen left Leeds United and Stuart McCall exited Bradford City.

3 - Replacing Christiansen at Elland Road was Paul Heckingbottom, who left Barnsley just three days after signing a new deal at Oakwell.

- The total of Aston Villa’s current winning streak in the Sky Bet Championship, an EFL high.

11 - Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers maintained their 11-point advantage at the summit thanks to a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Sheffield United last weekend.

12 - Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday both have the joint-highest amount of draws in the EFL, with the two teams picking up a point on 12 occasions thus far.

18 - The length of Blackburn Rovers’ unbeaten run in League One, until they were beaten 2-0 by Derek Adams’ Plymouth Argyle side at Home Park.

67 - The number of league goals scored by Luton Town so far this season — a 2017/18 high across the EFL.

96 - Marcus Bean struck a 96th-minute winner for Wycombe Wanderers against Carlisle United, in a game which the Chairboys came from behind to win 4-3 with 10 men.

101 - We reached three figures in the goalscoring charts last weekend, as the back of the net was found 101 times.

133 - Lincoln City had waited 133 years to reach Wembley before they progressed to the Checkatrade Trophy Final on Tuesday night with a penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea U21.
