Nick Miller:Good win for @dcfcofficial against Leeds United. Season is back on track. Stevie Mac needs to stay at Derby it's his home.

Dirty Mike Hunter: No one outside the top 6 will come close to Ipswich this season I don't think. They're on fire.

We've seen two top Championship sides tonight in Derby and Ipswich. Their opponents did not play well but they still had to work hard and do their job to a high standard and they did exactly that.

Derby hassled and harried and took their moments when they came. They could have easily have scored more.

Ipswich were simply too strong for poor Charlton, as they have been for so many sides at Portman Road this season.

Take a bow, both teams.

"When Neil Redfearn was caretaker, his record was better. They have a transfer embargo so you have to stick with him. Tactically, he didn't get it right today but he needs to get more out of the players."

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Robbie Savage

BBC Radio 5 live

"It has been very easy for Derby tonight. The first goal was unfortunate with Alex Mowatt putting through his own net but the second came from a needless free-kick conceded. There were not many chances but Derby were in full control against a lacklustre Leeds side."

FULL-TIME

Wigan 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Stuart Gray celebrates
PA

Shaun Maloney's delivery finds the post and that is pretty much the final Wigan blow as they lose a seventh game in nine outings.

Callum McManaman's sending off, less than 10 minutes after coming off the bench, proved costly and Atdhe Nuhiu wins it for Wednesday who are six points off the play-offs.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Derby winger Jordon Ibe: "We need to keep going and keep up the persistence. I am glad we won today. I am enjoying the loan from Liverpool and it is good for me to get minutes and get the team promoted."

FULL-TIME

Ipswich 3-0 Charlton

Mick McCarthy's men continue their promotion charge with another home win. Charlton were put to the sword in what is quickly becoming typical Town style. McCarthy's men end the year in flying form, second in the table and well on course for the Premier League.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Wigan 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Wigan so close to an equaliser as Shaun Maloney strikes the post in added time. That could well be the Latics' last opportunity to get something from this game.

FULL-TIME

Derby 2-0 Leeds

A routine home win for Derby. Leeds held them at bay for 40 minutes but once Derby broke through there was only one winner. Jake Buxton's header early in the second half made the remainder of the match a formality. Derby continue to look upwards, while Leeds will be spending the early parts of 2015 staring over their shoulder.

We are into injury time in the three Championship games. Derby, Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday are heading towards victory.

GOAL

Ipswich 3-0 Charlton - David McGoldrick (90 mins)

Ipswich underline their dominance in the game as David McGoldrick latches on to a ball, takes a touch and finishes coolly. Town will be finishing 2014 in second place in the Championship.

Adrian in Belfast: Leeds are like a team on their way to League One.

Peter in Pontefract: If Leeds get relegated again, total fault of Cellino. He's no idea what football club he's dealing with, it's a proud club that deserves a decent owner & manager that's allowed to manage. Current manager should not have been appt in first place.

YELLOW CARD

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Giuseppe Bellusci's persistent fouling on Chris Martin earns the Leeds defender a booking with two minutes to go. The Italian isn't happy but he has to take his medicine.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Leeds have a chance to put a rare ball into the Derby box from a free-kick on the right. Alex Mowatt fails to beat the first man, though. Sums up their night. Totally ineffectual.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Even when Leeds do break forward, they are so slow that Derby can regroup with ease. Lewis Cook is closed down by three Derby men and concedes a foul.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

There is just under 10 minutes to go in this final batch of games of 2014. At the iPro, Derby's Chris Martin fires a low shot that forces Marco Silvestri into a smart low save.

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Craig Bryson is on for Derby in place of Jeff Hendrick. Leeds have introduced Adryan for Tommaso Bianchi.

GOAL

Wigan 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday - Atdhe Nuhiu (77 mins)

Atdhe Nuhiu
PA

Wednesday make their numerical advantage count as Atdhe Nuhiu rises highest to head home from within the six-yard box. It was Jeremy Helan's cross.

Robbie Savage

BBC Radio 5 live

"I have never seen a Leeds team lose so many tackles. When you play Leeds, you know what you are going to get, tough tackling. I have seen nothing from them at all."

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Leeds are going to make another change. Adryan is on the touchline getting instructions from Neil Redfearn.

Robbie Savage

BBC Radio 5 live

"I've not seen much of Leeds player Tomasso Bianchi this season and I've not seen much of him tonight."

Derby 2-0 Leeds

The Derby boot is firmly on Leeds' throat. The away side have been given no room to play at all this half and they have nothing in the locker to change it and effect the game. Long balls forward to unimposing strikers are way too east for Derby to deal with. The Rams look content with 2-0. The home side could probably have had more goals but why expend energy going for that when there is no danger at the other end?

RED CARD FOR WIGAN

Wigan 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday - Callum McManaman

Callum McManaman
PA

Minutes after entering the fray as a substitute Callum McManaman exits surrounded by players as protestations over his sending off engulf the referee.

The Wigan winger gets a straight red for a thunderous tackle on Wednesday substitute Claude Dielna. The ball definitely gets caught but it looks on first glance that McManaman goes through his man to get it.

Latics down to 10 with around 20 minutes left.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Leeds can't get near Derby. It is way too easy for the home side, who force a corner that Lewis Cook initially heads clear before Marco Silvestri is forced to punch clear from a return ball into the mixer.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Wigan 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Wigan think they have the lead as Ben Watson's delivery from a free-kick is turned in by the offside James McClean. It is the last action for Watson, who makes way for Roger Espinoza.

James: Daryl Murphy what a player!

Simon Vickers: As soon as Leeds concede it's heads down and organisation gone, can't put two passes together.

Edward Jacobs: Can't help but feel this is now all about how ruthless Derby want to be tonight.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Fair play to the Leeds fans. Their team is heading for defeat here but they have been singing for pretty much the entirety of the second half. Meanwhile, on the pitch Jordon Ibe heads wide from close range for Derby.

SUBSTITUTION

The man making way for Billy Sharp is the totally ineffectual Souleymane Doukara. I could have used that description for pretty much every one of Leeds attacking players, though.

SUBSTITUTION

Wigan 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Wigan threaten for the first time in the second period as James McClean forces a save from Keiren Westwood but Malky Mackay follows the action with a change. Callum McManaman replaces Marc-Antoine Fortune.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

We are going to have a Leeds change and it is a goalscorer coming on. Billy Sharp is getting stripped off.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

There are just under 30 minutes to go at the iPro. Leeds simply have to do something positive here or they are limping to defeat. Derby are totally in control and comfortable. Leeds have the time but do they have the desire and talent? You suspect, no.

SUBSTITUTION

Wigan 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday introduce Claude Dielna for defender Joe Mattock. A tight second half so far with little in the way of openings.

GOAL

Ipswich 2-0 Charlton - Daryl Murphy (59 mins)

Seventeenth goal of the season for Daryl Murphy, who scored twice in the Boxing Day win over Brentford. The Irishman heads in David McGoldrick's corner from close range into the top-left corner.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

That was a chance for Leeds. Mirco Antenucci has the ball on a tight angle on the left following an Alex Mowatt corner but his shot towards goal is blocked by Lee Grant. That is likely to class as their first shot on target, but it comes to nothing.

Robbie Savage

BBC Radio 5 live

"This Leeds team look hopeless, it will be a struggle to stay up. They haven't got a leader. I have seen great Leeds teams playing with energy and passion but they have been very poor."

Ipswich 1-0 Charlton

Charlton pushing forward as they search for the equaliser. Brilliant defending by Christophe Berra stops George Tucudean from causing trouble inside the box, while moments earlier Bartosz Bialkowski comfortably gathered a curling Johann Berg Gudmundsson effort. The visitors yet to cause Ipswich major trouble though.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Deby look a threat every time they go forward now. It should be 3-0 as Craig Forsyth's cross from the left is headed wide by Chris Martin. Leeds are in disarray. Derby are easing to three points.

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Leeds get a glimpse of the ball in the Derby box with a chipped pass to Mirko Antenucci but he is muscled off the ball by Richard Keogh. Leeds' failure to test Lee Grant continues.

CLOSE!

Wigan 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Wigan v Sheffield Wednesday
PA

If anyone is going to break the deadlock at the DW Stadium Lewis McGugan looks most likely. He is having a bang from all angles tonight and goes right footed from range to test Scott Carson.
