Five things you may have missed from the midweek action!

31 December 2020

After another thrilling two night's of football across Tuesday and Wednesday, here are five things you may have missed from the midweek action.


In Sky Bet League One’s early game of the day between Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic, 19-year-old Kyle Joseph stole the show.

A stunning hat-trick from the youngster helped the Latics secure three points on the road. 

It was made more impressive that the men from the DW Stadium had to pull themselves level three times in the game, before Will Keane’s winner in the 83rd minute.


Ram Raided 

Another Sky Bet Championship matchday, another impressive result for interim Derby County boss Wayne Rooney.

A 4-0 demolition job of Birmingham City kicked off the night’s action with goals coming from Krystian Bielik, Graeme Shinnie and Colin Kazim-Richards all netting before the break.

Jason Knight added insult to injury for the Blues with the Rams’ fourth after 77 minutes.

That win takes Derby up to 20th just three points outside of the relegation zone, while Birmingham sit in 18th, seven points off the drop.


McAnuff hasn’t had enough

Age is just but a number they say in footballing terms, and Leyton Orient’s Jobi McAnuff is a prime example that his legs at the tender age of 39 are still raring and ready to go.

The midfielder popped up with a terrific effort which helped Orient on their way to three points with a 2-0 win over bottom of the table Southend United.



There’s no better way to win a game than a last minute winner, that’s what the fans will tell you anyway, although a lot of them would take a 5-0 win every day of the week.

Huddersfield Town defender Naby Sarr will be the talk of the town as his two goals sunk visiting Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.

With his second goal of the night coming in the 90th minute, a late Christmas present for the 27-year-old who takes his tally up to three for the season.


Martin Masterclass 

One of the results of the night in terms of clinical finishing came at the County Ground as MK Dons ran out 4-1 winners against Swindon Town.

A Cameron Jerome double alongside goals from Daniel Harvie and Regan Poole made it a comfortable evening in Wiltshire for Russell Martin’s men.

That win takes the Dons up to 14th in the Sky Bet League One table.
