Last-gasp goals make it a dra­matic day in the EFL

The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By Chris Dunlavy

IT WASN’T wise to leave an EFL game early yes­ter­day! Late goals were the or­der of the day in Leagues One and Two. Rother­ham looked as though they would lose their derby at Don­caster un­til League One’s top scorer Ki­ef­fer Moore popped up with a 96th minute equaliser. Moore’s 13th goal of the sea­son proved un­lucky for Donny, whose boss Dar­ren Fer­gu­son was left lament­ing the fact the goal came in the sixth minute of stop­page time af­ter five had been in­di­cated ini­tially.

“It’s very raw, a big body blow,” said Fer­gu­son. “All the lads are gut­ted.”

Neal Bishop headed home in the 94th minute as Scun­thorpe beat Bris­tol Rovers 1-0.

In League Two, Lu­ton missed out on the chance to go top when Chel­tenham keeper Scott Flin­ders headed down for Will Boyle to net a 97th-minute lev­eller.

Luke Nor­ris scored a 96th minute penalty equaliser for Swin­don ver­sus Ch­ester­field.
