The Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two didn’t disappoint this weekend as the season approaches the quarter-way mark.

Packed full of late drama and recording breaking wins, we review some of the biggest outcomes from the weekend’s action…

In League One, a reduced schedule didn’t break Wycombe Wanderers’ stride, as Gareth Ainsworth’s men set a new record of seven home League wins on the bounce at Adams Park. The second placed Buckinghamshire side sealed maximum points in a 2-0 win over Gillingham at the weekend.

Plymouth Argyle maintain their highest League position since May 2010. The League leaders equalled Wycombe’s tally with a 2-1 triumph over Burton Albion, which lifted them to the summit of the League One standings.

Meanwhile, Lee Gregory’s solitary strike was enough to see Sheffield Wednesday edge Bolton Wanderers 1-0, with the South Yorkshire side now level with the Trotters on 18 points.

And Ipswich Town moved up to 14th with a weekend victory over Shrewsbury Town. Conor Chaplin and Macauley Bonne were on target in a 2-1 win at Portman Road over the Shrews in League One.

The joint top scorers across the three divisions Harrogate Town made Club history, recording their biggest-ever EFL victory over Scunthorpe United at the weekend. Jack Muldoon took home the match-ball in the wake of a resounding 6-1 win over the Iron, with the North Yorkshire team trailing Forest Green Rovers by a point.

Our featured game of the weekend saw Sutton United claim a late victory over Port Vale. With four minutes remaining, the EFL newcomers faced a 3-2 deficit but struck twice in four minutes to turn it around and seal a 4-3 victory over fourth placed Vale in stoppage time.

Elsewhere, Swindon Town recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over table toppers Forest Green, putting the Robins within reach of the Gloucestershire team. Second-half goals from Harry McKirdy and Tyreece Simpson were enough to see off the League leaders.

And Bristol Rovers resigned Carlisle United to a third straight defeat. The Gas sealed all three points with three goals on home soil as Joey Barton’s men returned to winning ways at the weekend.
