Sky Bet EFL: Friday night action

19 January 2018

Two Friday night fixtures kicked off the EFL weekend, with Derby County and Bristol City playing out a goalless draw in the Sky Bet Championship, while Newport County saw off Crawley Town at home in League Two.

At Pride Park, both sides tried their hardest to find a goal in front of the Sky Sports cameras, but neither could find the net.

Bristol City had the best chance of the first half, it fell to Jamie Paterson, but the normally reliant Robin could not find the net.

In the second half, Lee Johnson's side had substitute goalkeeper Luke Steele to thank - the stopper pulled off a number of fine saves to ensure the match remained goalless.

In Sky Bet League Two, Newport County made it four consecutive wins and claimed a place in the play-offs thanks to a 2-1 win over Crawley Town.

Strikes from Padraig Amond and Mickey Demetriou on the stroke of half-time sent the Exiles into the break on a high.

Crawley struck back through Jimmy Smith immediately after the interval, but it they couldn't find the second.
