EFL Focus

Today we will be looking at three matches from the football league, the games will be spread out across the three leagues. If there are any particular games you would like me to do message me on Instagram @jamiesportsblog.

The game we will start with if Fulham against Preston. Where Fulham came back from 2-0 down to clinch a last gasp draw at Craven Cottage. The first goal came within twenty minutes, a good ball into the box and it was neatly finished by Hugill for his fourth goal of the season. Preston nearly doubled their lead less than five minutes later a good through ball only to be stopped by Button in the Fulham goal. Only a few minutes later the lead was doubled, a ball over the top to Maguire and he did the rest, a very good finish at the Button’s near post to make it double. It looked all over for Fulham as they couldn’t find the net, hitting the post and just missing on countless occasions. Until Calum Woods took down Fonte in the box and Norwood calmly converted the penalty. It was now a race to see if the Whites could get the goal. Then finally in the 90+6th minute a long ball came in and a massive mistake from the Preston keeper who spilled it. The ball fell to Odoi who slotted it home for the draw.

The second game is not the most obvious choice as it is one of the early bottom of the table clashes in League One. With AFC Wimbledon coming out 1-0 victors they will hope to stay in England’s third tier for another season. Not much happened frankly it was a pretty scrappy game, but there was a brilliant goal from Forrester. He gets the ball thirty yards out steps past one and smashed past the keeper from eighteen yards out. Wimbledon looked good, look out for them in the future.

The final game is a thrashing. Third in the table Luton smashing Stevenage 7-1. Now I won’t describe every goal because that would take me forever, but I will give a summary. Luton got off to the perfect start when Berry scored in the third minute and it took them just four more minutes to double that lead Hylton grabbing this goal. At half time it was 3-1. The Luton went big Berry completed hat-rick, Hylton converted his penalty and they scored twice in the last minute of the game. Luton to win League Two?
