Pogba quickly made an impact when he scored twice on his debut against Hartlepool in a League Cup first round tie on 11 August. A week later, he scored on his league debut, notching a 78th minute consolation in a 2–1 defeat to Notts County, which Pogba scored two weeks later, in a 5–1 loss against Brentford. However, Pogba suffered a knee injury that kept him out of action for the most of September. He made his first team return, coming on as a substitute for AJ Leitch-Smith in the 62nd minute, in a 1–0 loss against Milton Keynes Dons on 29 September 2012. By the end of December, Pogba scored four more league goals in 20 appearances (against Doncaster Rovers, Colchester United, Sheffield United and Oldham Athletic), while scoring two more goals in separate cup competitions against Wycombe Wanderers and Doncaster Rovers. After two months without scoring, Pogba ended his goal drought when he scored in a 2–1 loss against Bournemouth on 12 February 2013. Pogba later added four more goals - one each against Portsmouth, and Colchester United and a brace against MK Dons. However, Pogba suffered a torn thigh that sidelined him for the rest of the season, resulting him having an operation. Despite missing out for the Football League Trophy Final and the club's promotion to League One, Pogba made 41 appearance and scoring 16 times (making him the club's top scorer of the 2012–13 season) in all competitions.
