We take a look at the top stats and facts from the weekend’s action in the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two.
Bluebirds on song
Cardiff are four points clear of third in the Sky Bet Championship table after Kenneth Zohore scored an 82nd-minute winner against Bristol City in the Severnside derby – Neil Warnock’s side have now won 11 points in the final 10 minutes of games this season, the most of any Championship side.
The win was also Cardiff’s third successive 1-0 victory – in total they’ve won seven games by that scoreline in the Championship this season; the joint-most in the division along with Norwich.
