Sky Bet League One & Two: Five things you may have missed

17 November 2019

With no Sky Bet Championship action and in what was a much smaller League One schedule due to the international break, here are five things you may have missed from the weekend.

50 for The Beast 
It was a happy Sunday for Wycombe Wanderers fans who celebrated their side going top of Sky Bet League One. Live on Sky Sports, victory over Tranmere Rovers on Sunday afternoon saw Gareth Ainsworth’s side jump above Ipswich Town into first place. The game also saw Adebayo Akinfenwa score his 50th goal for the Chairboys as he left Preston Park with the Man of the Match Trophy. It’s now nine unbeaten for Wycombe Wanderers. 
Swindon Town go top 
A fourth-consecutive victory with a narrow 3-2 win over Salford City saw Richie Wellens’ Swindon Town go top of the Sky Bet League Two table. In what was a first-ever EFL meeting between the two sides, Wellens praised Swindon’s tactical awareness against the North West side. Swindon have now won each of their last six matches against sides they have faced for the first time in the EFL. 
Doyle in red-hot form 
The ‘ginger Pele’ as he’s currently known in the EFL world. October’s League Two Player of the Month Eoin Doyle scored a brace - not for the first time this season - as Swindon fired themselves to the top of League Two. The striker - on loan from Bradford City - scored in his sixth consecutive game and is not only the top scorer in all four divisions of English football, but has also netted more than twice as many goals as any other League Two player this campaign. 
Last-gasp win for Bolton Wanderers
Three points for Keith Hill’s side means Bolton Wanderers have now won their last three games in Sky Bet League One, the first time they have done so since March 2017. It looked as though the game against MK Dons would end 0-0, but Bolton were awarded a penalty with minutes to go. Daryl Murphy stepped up with the hope to securing three points but missed his spot-kick. However, he quickly redeemed himself with a 93rd minute winner from close range to take Bolton into a positive points tally. 
Forest Green Rovers beaten
In what was the first ever EFL meeting between Forest Green Rovers and Plymouth Argyle, Forest Green went into the side top of the League Two table having lost just one of their last ten league games. Ryan Lowe’s side managed a 1-0 win, moving them up to 11th place and just two points outside the Play-Off places.
