Billy Sharp became just the third player to score 200 goals in English league football this century, when he scored twice against former club Leeds in Sheffield United’s 2-1 win. Sharp joins Rickie Lambert (219) and Wayne Rooney (208) in the 21st century 200 club.
Sharp’s first goal on Saturday, which was his 200th, came after just 70 seconds – the second time he has scored early against Leeds this season. He also found the net inside the opening two minutes of the Blades’ 2-1 win at Elland Road back in October.
Aston Villa beat city rivals Birmingham on Sunday to record their seventh successive league win – the first time they have won seven league games in a row since finish top-flight runners-up in 1989-90. The win lifted Villa to second, their highest position since coming down from the Premier League in 2015/16.
Black Cats comeback
Sunderland came back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Bristol City, scoring three times in the final 20 minutes. That doesn’t quite beat the last time the Black Cats came back from three down to draw, against Port Vale in 1991 – Robin van Der Laan put Vale 3-0 up in the 56th minute but Sunderland were level just 15 minutes later thanks to goals from Kieron Brady (59, 71) and Kevin Ball (69).
Adama Traore scored both of Middlesbrough’s goals in their 2-1 win over Reading – in his last four league games, Traore has scored three goals from four shots on target. Prior to this run, Traore had only had one shot on target all season.
Wigan lost 3-1 at Southend on Saturday – only the second time this season they have failed to beat a side currently 10th or lower in the table. The Latics have won 16 of 18 games against sides 10th or below, but have picked up just three wins from 11 games against the top nine. They face top-six sides Blackburn, Scunthorpe and Bradford in the space of 10 days in March.
Marcus Bean scored Wycombe’s equaliser in their 1-1 draw at Exeter on Saturday – his second goal in two games after scoring against Carlisle the week before. Prior to this, Bean had not scored for Wycombe in 103 appearances since joining the club in January 2015.
