🌪️ Marc Cucurella has made the most overlapping runs of any #CFC player so far this season. He’s combined with Sterling (7), Mount (6) and Havertz (6) regularly in his attacking runs.

🤕 He misses the game against #CPFC with illness. A boost for Palace?

Ipswich Town 2-5 Bolton Wanderers

Bolton continued their fine start to the season with a 5-2 victory over Ipswich moving to third, while piling more misery on Paul Cook’s men who remain winless after six games.

Ipswich started the game brightly, taking the lead in the fifth minute, through Macauley Bonne tapping into an open goal following a strong run down the right flank from Wes Burns.

However, this was short lived, as Oladapo Afolayan levelled the score in the 10th minute, before a reckless challenge from Kane Vincent-Young allowed Eoin Doyle to put Bolton 2-1 up in the 18th minute.

A Ricardo Santos own goal gave Ipswich hope and brought the scores back level in the 30th minute, but Bolton came back on top, with Afolayan grabbing his second goal on the stroke of half-time.

This continued in the first 10 minutes of the second half, with Josh Sheehan and George Johnston adding to the tally, and putting the game to bed – leaving Ipswich with the worst defensive record in the league.


Morecambe 3-4 AFC Wimbledon

Goals galore at the Mazuma Stadium saw AFC Wimbledon take the three points home with a late winner giving them a 4-3 win.

A clever free kick from Anthony Hartigan caught Jokull Andresson out in the Morecambe net going in off the bar to give Wimbledon an early lead.

The second half saw the floodgates open in this game with the remaining six goals coming after the break.

A controversial equaliser by Cole Stockton in the 49th minute saw the Wimbledon defenders stop as they awaited the offside call which never came.

A tremendous diving header from Shane McLoughlin put Morecambe ahead before Ethan Chislett brought the game back level at 2-2 in the 61st minute.

Cole Stockton then went on to grab his second of the day, hitting a volley on the turn from more than 35 yards out that sailed over the head of the Wimbledon keeper, a spectacular goal fit for a spectacular game.

From yet another Anthony Hartigan set piece delivery caused problems, finding the head of Will Nightingale to head home, a combination that is proving to be deadly this season.

The set piece dangers wouldn’t stop there however. This time on corner duty Anthony Hartigan’s delivery fell for Ayoub Assal to volley the ball in off the bar to give Wimbledon the win in the 93rd minute, another well taken goal to wrap up what was a great spectacle.


Cambridge United 1-5 Lincoln City

Another high scoring game saw Lincoln City gain their first away win of the season, which also saw Cambridge suffer their first loss at home.

A ruthless performance from the away side saw them go 3-0 up in the opening 24 minutes, with goals from Hakeeb Adelakun, Connor McGrandles and Anthony Scully.

The latter putting in a performance capable of haunting the Cambridge defenders all week, with the winger grabbing himself two goals and three assists.

A Joe Ironsides goal in the 59th minute proved to be just a consolation with Cambridge already 4-0 down, before Anthony Scully grabbed his second to truly put the game to bed and give Lincoln a well-deserved 5-1 win.


Other results

Sunderland continued their terrific start to the season with a 2-1 win over Accrington, making it five wins from six to stay top of the league.

While Cheltenham, MK Dons, Plymouth, Fleetwood and Wigan also followed suit in picking up three points.

Finally, Shrewsbury vs Crewe, Oxford vs Wycombe and Burton vs Gillingham ended level.
