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

Sky Bet League One and Two took the limelight!

13 October 2019

It may have been a reduced fixture list due to the international break, but it was another epic weekend of EFL action! Below, we've rounded up some of the big stories...

1. Ivan Toney first in double figures

The Peterborough striker became the top goalscorer in English football as Posh moved up to third in Sky Bet League League One.

The 23-year-old now has 10 goals this campaign, more than any other player in all competitions.

Late strikes from Toney and Louis Reed ensured Peterborough saw off Lincoln City 2-0

2. AFC Wimbledon striker looks a Forss to be reckoned with

In-form Marcus Forss grabbed a hat-trick to fire AFC Wimbledon to a thumping win at fellow strugglers Southend.

On-loan Brentford forward Forss has now scored seven goals in six Sky Bet League One games, more than any other player since his debut for the Dons. 

He certainly looks to be helping 'Forss' AFC Wimbledon up the table.

3. Crewe move top of Sky Bet League Two

Two late Crewe goals thwarted a Carlisle fightback to win 4-2 at Brunton Park and move top of Sky Bet League Two on goals scored.

The visitors looked comfortable after Nicky Hunt and Daniel Powell fired them into a 2-0 lead.

However, Carlisle battled back to draw level in a thrilling second half, when Hallam Hope and Christie Elliott were on target, only for Alex to have the final say with Chris Porter's strike and a Gethin Jones own goal.

4. Maynard loves Latics

One thing to note before Mansfield Town's match against Oldham Athletic was that Nicky Maynard has a strong scoring record against them. 

And a hat-trick for the veteran striker saw him make that record look even better, with eight goals in his last seven games now against the Latics. 

A 6-1 win saw the Stags move up in to 15th in the table. 

5. Embleton ends time in charge of Orient with win

In what is likely to be his final match as Leyton Orient interim manager, Ross Embleton was able to end his brief tenure in charge with a 3-1 win over Walsall.

Orient came back after trailing at the interval, with Embleton set to step aside for a permanent appointment this week.
