          The EFL returned for an action-packed Matchweek 6 this weekend - and here's our regular round-up of the winners and losers from up and down the three divisions... 



          The Cherries moved up into the Championship top five with a comfortable 3-0 win over Barnsley this afternoon, thanks to a brace from Jordan Zemura and a goal from Dominic Solanke.

          Bournmenouth had been on a poor run of late without a win in their previous three games, which included a 6-0 hammering at Norwich. Scott Parker's men look to have got back to their best and if he can keep his top scorer Solanke firing in the goals then promotion looksa realistic target for the South Coast club this season. 

          Coventry City 

          The Sky Blues jumped up to sixth position in the Championship table after a 2-0 win over struggling Middlesborough this afternoon.

          Goals from Viktor Gyokeres and Martyn Waghorn helped secure Mark Robins' men the win and pushed them up towards the upper echelons of the table.

          After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, this campaign could present an opportunity for the once top-flight club to challenge for a play-off place. With new signing Gyokeres already with three goals to his name, the in-form striker could well shape-up to be the missing jigsaw in attack for the Sky Blues. 

          Bolton Wanderers 

          Wanderers ran out 5-2 victors at Ipswich this afternoon in an utterly dominant performance which saw the away side create 14 chances in total.

          A brace from Oladapo Afolayan helped cap off a five star performance which saw Wanderers jump up to third position in the League One table.

          The Trotters are unbeaten in their last three, and take on Rotherham next time out. They will hope top scorer Afolayan can continue his hot streak of form and help them continue their push for promotion. 

          Wigan Athletic 

          Will Keane's brace helped Wigan to a 2-1 comeback win over Doncaster at the DW Stadium this afternoon, which pushed the Latics up to second place in the League One table, just two points behind Sunderland at the top.

          Top scorer Keane delivered a matchwinning display that could provide a platform upon which the Latics can build after an indifferent start to the season. 

          Forest Green Rovers 

          The Green Army leapfrogged Harrogate at the top of the League Two table as a solo goal from Jamille Matt helped secure a 1-0 win over Northampton Town at The New Lawn.

          Rob Edwards' side will look to go one better than last season and mount an automatic promotion bid, having fallen short in last year's League Two play-offs.


          Peterborough United 

          The Posh were hammered 6-2 earlier today at Bramall Lane thanks to braces from both Ben Osborn and Iliman Ndiaye of Sheffield United.

          Darren Ferguson's men dropped to bottom from one in the Championship in 23rd position, a point from safety.

          They travel to Reading next week in a desperate search for points, as they attempt to halt a sorry run of form that has seen them go four without victory. 


          The West Londoners succumbed to a shock 1-0 defeat at Blackpool this afternoon, to blow a hole in the theory that they will stroll to the Championship title this term.

          Thankfully for Fulham, top of the table West Brom were held to a 1-1 draw by Millwall, but Cottagers fans will be worried by a loss to the struggling Tangerines, who picked up all three points thanks to Josh Bowler's strike. 

          Fulham travel to Birmingham on Wednesday night with Marco Silva's men looking to bounce back quickly from a disappointing result. 

          Charlton Athletic 

          Charlton were beaten 2-1 at home by newly-promoted Cheltenham, with a result which saw them drop to 20th position in League One.

          The Addicks are failing to convince at the minute and their trip Wycombe next Saturday takes on added significance after their latest poor result.  

          Scunthorpe United 

          Scunthorpe were annihilated 4-0 at home to Exeter this weekend as Neil Cox's men sank to 22nd position in League Two, just a point above Sutton United.

          A brace from Exeter's Matt Jay helped complete a miserable afternoon for the North-East side, who have suffered two defeats on the bounce. They travel to Carlisle next weekend in search of a badly-needed turnaround in form.
