EFL Review

Change At Top Of League Two

Eoin Doyle scored twice as Swindon came from behind to beat Salford City; the Robins leapfrogged Forest Green Rovers at the top of League Two.

Adam Rooney scored two penalties, one in either half, but Doyle’s fifth and sixth goals – as well as a Jerry Yates goal – extended the Robins’ winning run.

Forest Green Rovers suffered their first defeat in four matches as Plymouth Argyle’s Antoni Sarcevic ended a four-game goal drought to down the Rovers.

Promotion-chasing Crewe Alexandra were humbled 4-1 at Northampton, with Andy Williams, Sam Hoskins and a Scott Wharton double proving the difference.

Crawley Town were made to rue their missed chances as Derek Adams recorded a point on his first game as Morecambe boss.

Manager-less Leyton Orient handed Scunthorpe United their first away league win since January with a 2-0 defeat.

Late Drama For Trotters

In League One, Bolton Wanderers reached a positive points tally for the first time this season.

The Lancashire-based side netted a stoppage-time winner to beat ten-man MK Dons.

Daryl Murphy, who missed a penalty just moments earlier, kept his composure in added time to lash home.

The result gives Russell Martin his victory at Trotters boss in his debut league game in charge.

Coventry finished the day in third after coming from behind to beat Rochdale 2-1.

Ian Henderson put the visitors ahead, before Jordan Shipley levelled before half-time; Liam Walsh struck the winning numbers 18 minutes from the end.

Blackpool jumped to fourth with a 2-0 victory over lowly AFC Wimbledon.

A double from Armand Gnanduillet was all the difference for the Tangerines.
