The EFL weekend review

28 March 2022

Attention turned to Sky Bet League One and League Two at the weekend, with the international break pressing pause on the Sky Bet Championship.

We look back at some of the key talking points from the weekend’s action…

With their rivals not in action, Sheffield Wednesday took full advantage to move in to the Play-Off places, coming from a goal down to run out 4-1 winners against Cheltenham Town. 

Ipswich also kept their hopes of a top six finish alive. Sam Morsy came up with the decisive goal against promotion rivals Plymouth Argyle - a result which means the Tractor Boys are now 11 games unbeaten.

At the other end of the table two goals in nine minutes moved Gillingham further clear of trouble with a 2-1 win, a result which ended Accrington Stanley's nine match unbeaten run at the Wham. Accy threatened a late comeback with Colby Bishop's injury-time penalty, but the Gills held on for a win which moves them four points clear of the bottom four.



Carlisle United made it six wins from seven since Paul Simpson's return. Kristian Dennis' 72nd-minute winner saw the Cumbrians edge past an in-form and promotion-chasing Bristol Rovers at Brunton Park, who drop down to sixth. 

That result helped Exeter City and Northampton Town further cement their places in the top three. Sam Stubbs scored his first two goals for the Grecians to beat Stevenage 2-1 and the Cobblers crusied to a 2-0 victory at Sixfields against Hartlepool United.

A stunning strike from Jamie Proctor helped Port Vale move up to fourth with a 2-0 win over Sutton United, a result which saw the U's drop to 11th. 

Meanwhile an incredible last-gasp Junior Tchamadeu winner saw Colchester United move eight points clear of the bottom two, denting Tranmere Rover's hopes of automatic promotion.
