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

11 October 2020

With no Sky Bet Championship action this weekend due to the international break, attention turned to Sky Bet League One and Two - and we were not disappointed.

Fleetwood Town 4-1 Hull City

The weekend’s action in Sky Bet League kicked off at Highbury Stadium as Fleetwood Town welcomes Hull City onto the Fylde Coast.

With the game locked level at 1-1 at the break, no one could have predicted what was to ensue in the second half of this fixture.

Clearly, Joey Barton’s words of wisdom worked wonders as the Cod Army came out and stuck three past Matt Ingram in the Tigers goal.

Harvey Saunders doubled his tally in the latter period, adding to is first half strike, alongside goals from Callum Camps and Sam Stubbs.

A impressive 4-1 victory for the hosts and three big points as Fleetwood Town aim for another season inside the Play-Off places.

Lincoln City 1-2 Bristol Rovers

Lincoln City surrendered their early position at the top of the League One table at the weekend after a 2-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers.

The action did not unfold until the second half, and within the first minute of restart, the home side took the lead.

Lewis Montsma netting his sixth goal of the season, however two minutes later James Daly pulled the visitors level.

Just before the hour mark Brandon Hanson stepped up and converted his spot kick to put the Gas in front and hand them their second league win of the season.

Northampton 0-2 Peterborough United

Peterborough United registered their first away win of the season with a comfortable victory over local rivals Northampton Town.

Darren Ferguson’s Posh side dominated proceedings from start to finish and clinched the win thanks to a goal in each half from Nathan Thompson and Reece Brown.

Those three points lifted the away side into the Play-Off places alongside Accrington Stanley who also have nine points from five games.

Oldham Athletic 2-3 Morecambe

Morecambe are the unusual league leaders at the top of Sky Bey League Two, not only that, they also sit at the summit with a minus goal difference.

Work that one out.

It has been a more than impressive season for Derek Adams’ side who have picked up 12 points from their opening five games.

Yesterday’s high-scoring affair shows that they are plenty of goals in the Shrimps outfit but there is certainly work to be done on the defensive side of things.

Cambridge United 2-1 Newport County

Newport County were knocked off top spot in League Two as Paul Mullin's double saw them lose 2-1 at Cambridge United.

The 25-year-old continued his impressive start to the campaign scoring a goal in each half at the Abbey Stadium.

The U’s leapfrogged their counterparts with the three points and no sit level on 10 points with the Exiles, just two points behind Morecambe.

Mark Bonner is certainly enjoying life as the man in the hot seat at Cambridge United, and has been rewarded for his work at the club, winning the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month for September.
