Five things you may have missed from the weekend's action

25 November 2019

There were thrills and spills across the EFL's three divisions at the weekend! Here are just a few of the big results and stories you may have missed...

1. Cardiff come back to earn a point for Harris

Neil Harris was back in London for his first match in charge of the Bluebirds.

It did not look as if it was going to be a happy return to the English capital though, as Charlton went in to half-time 2-0 up.

A second-half penalty miss did not deter them, though, as goals from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Lee Tomlin saw them fight-back to earn the visitors a point at the Valley.


2. Dack double denies Struber first Barnsley point

Gerhard Struber’s first taste of English football was a five-goal thriller at Ewood Park.

And it was a spirited performance from Barnsley, who twice came back from a goal behind to draw level.

But an 86th minute rebounded effort from Rovers’ Bradley Dack saw the Austrian head coach end his first match in charge in defeat.


3. The leaders continue to lead

The teams at the top of the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two all enjoyed victories.

A 23rd minute goal from the EFL’s top scorer Eoin Doyle was enough to see Swindon Town edge out Mansfield Town.

There was late drama at Adams Park as League One leaders Wycombe Wanderers left it late before an injury-time Joe Jacobson penalty edged them past Doncaster and go five points clear of Ipswich Town. 

And it was the same for West Bromwich Albion with substitute Charlie Austin's 88th-minute penalty earning them the points over Sheffield Wednesday to ensure that they stayed top of the Championship by two points.


4. Rowett revival

Millwall continued their revival under Gary Rowett as Jed Wallace's fine free-kick saw them win at Swansea City.

The result also secured two significant milestones for the Lions.

It was Rowett’s men’s first away win of the season and they moved up in to the top half of the table in to 10th – just five points off a play-off place.


5. Super subs sees Millers complete unlikely turnaround

Things looked bleak for Rotherham United at Stadium MK going at half time.

Goals from Alex Gilbey and Joe Mason saw them trail 2-0 to Russel Martin's Milton Keynes Dons.

They were a different team in the second half, though, as substitutes Freddie Lapado and Kyle Vassell helping inspire the team to a 3-2 win, with the former scoring two goals and the latter having an “unbelievable” game according to his manager Paul Warne.
