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.
Brentford struggling away
Brentford are still without an away win in the Sky Bet Championship this season after losing 3-1 at Derby on Saturday. Henrik Dalsgaard gave the Bees the lead after 53 seconds before goals from Harry Wilson (14), David Nugent (21) and Mason Mount (38) gave Frank Lampard's Rams the win.
While the Bees have a perfect record at home this season, taking 12 points from 12, they have taken three points from a possible 15 away, dropping seven points in the process. Their seven points dropped is the joint most in the Championship this season along with Millwall and Blackburn.
Birmingham finally win
Birmingham won their first Championship game of the season, ending Leeds' unbeaten start to the season with a 2-1 win at Elland Road on Saturday. Che Adams scored his first double in the Championship to give Garry Monk's team their first win. Paul Hurst's Ipswich are now the only team without a Championship win this season.
Middlesbrough kept yet another clean sheet as they drew 0-0 at home to Swansea on Saturday. Middlesbrough have kept seven clean sheets in their nine Championship games this season. Norwich's Teemu Pukki is the only player to score past Darren Randolph in the last eight games.
Pukki in form
Norwich's Teemu Pukki's winning goal against QPR on Saturday was his fifth goal in his last five appearances for club and country. Pukki scored in both of Finland's 1-0 Nations League home wins at the start of the month against Hungary and Estonia and in Norwich's last three wins against Middlesbrough, Reading and QPR. His last three goals have won Norwich six points.
Posh bounce back
Peterborough got back to winning ways in Sky Bet League One with a 4-2 win at Gillingham on Saturday. It was the fifth time in nine League games this season that they have scored more than three goals. Peterborough's tally of 24 league goals is more than any of the other 92 clubs in the top four divisions.
Lincoln flying high
Lincoln made it seven wins from nine Sky Bet League Two games this season after they came from behind to beat MK Dons 2-1 on Saturday. Shay McCartan (72) equalised before Jason Shackell scored the latest goal in the EFL on Saturday, with his winning strike scored in the fourth minute of added time.
