That's just about it for this evening.

There was

drama in Monaco, where Arsenal came so close to overturning their first-leg Champions League deficit.

And there was plenty of drama in the Football League too - with plenty more sure to follow before the end of the season.

Until next time, goodnight.

So we have new leaders at the top of the Championship as Watford take over at the top as Troy Deeney's brace saw off

relegation-threatened Wigan.

They lead Middlesbrough on goal difference after Aitor Karanka's side edged to a 1-0 victory at promotion rivals Derby courtesy of

Patrick Bamford's goal against his former club.

Norwich needed a last-gasp equaliser to take a point from a

2-2 draw at Huddersfield - Jamar Loza sweeping home moments after James Vaughan thought he had scored the winner and was sent off after picking up a second yellow card for his celebration.

Play-off chasing Brentford, Ipswich and Wolves all won, while there was another defeat for bottom-of-the-table Blackpool

The lie of the land

And here's how the Championship table now looks following this evening's action.

You feel this promotion race could go to the final game of the campaign.

League Two round-up

With top-of-the-table Burton Albion not featuring in tonight's League Two fixtures, it was up to Shrewsbury and Wycombe to maintain the pressure with the former leapfrogging the latter as Shrewsbury enjoyed a resounding 4-1 victory at Morecambe whilst the Chairboys could only manage a draw at home to Accrington.

Despite Cheltenham's entertaining draw with Portsmouth they remain very much in the relegation battle as Tranmere recorded a 2-1 away win at Cambridge, whilst bottom-placed Hartlepool pulled off a vital win against Oxford United.

Carlisle enjoyed a vital win to keep their survival hopes alive with victory at Northampton, whilst Mansfield won 2-1 against Wimbledon, Bury won 1-0 away at York and Dagenham and Redbridge won 2-0 against Plymouth.

Newport carried on their fight for a play-off spot as they overcame rivals Luton 1-0. Stevenage missed the chance to give themselves some breathing room in the play-off places as they played out a goalless draw at Exeter.

League One round-up

It's been an exciting night in League One as Coventry left it late at Fleetwood with Dominic Samuel's 87th-minute finish looking to have won it for the Sky Blues before Frank Nouble sealed a vital three points in added time.

Sam Clucas scored his second of the night as Chesterfield romped to victory against Gillingham.

Bristol City maintained their lead at the top of the League One table with a 3-0 victory over Crewe, while second-placed Preston beat Peterborough 2-0.

FULL-TIME

Huddersfield 2-2 Norwich

What an incredible end to the game. I'm speechless to be honest with you. Two goals and a red card in injury time isn't a bad end to a game, is it?

FULL-TIME

Millwall 0-0 Brighton

It ends all square in a match which never really got going at The Den. Milwall have edged ever so closer to safety, with eight points between them and 21st-placed Rotherham, while Brighton stay in 19th.

GOAL

Huddersfield 2-2 Norwich (Jamar Loza 90 + 8 mins)

Jamar Loza
PA

Remarkable finish at the John Smith's Stadium! Norwich grab a last-gasp equaliser with Jamar Loza coming off the bench to score. It is only his third league appearance for the Canaries but he's in the right place at the right time to score the crucial goal. A miss-hit shot arrives at his feet and he stabs an equaliser in.

RED CARD

Huddersfield 2-1 Norwich (James Vaughan - second bookable offence, 90+6 mins)

James Vaughan

Having just received a yellow card for a poorly-timed tackle James Vaughan takes his shirt off in celebration of scoring what he thinks is the winner. Mixed feelings for the striker as he trudges off down the tunnel.

FULL-TIME

Wolves 3-0 Sheff Wed

It's all over at Molineux too, with Wolves convincing winners over Sheffield Wednesday.

It could have been better for Kenny Jackett's side who, at one stage, were level on points with the play-off places.

But late winners for Brentford and Ipswich means they remain three points behind.

GOAL

Huddersfield 2-1 Norwich (James Vaughan, 90+4 mins)

Huddersfield's James Vaughan, who made six appearances for Norwich without scoring, is set up by Jacob Butterfield, another ex-Canary, to score what looks like the winner! The defence switched off and left too much space and he side-footed it into the right-hand corner.

FULL-TIME

Wigan 0-2 Watford

Two goals from talisman Troy Deeney have given Watford a priceless victory at Wigan. They are going top of the Championship tonight, level on points with Middlesbrough after Bournemouth's draw at Cardiff.

But things are looking bleak for Malky Mackay's Wigan, who are six points away from safety with eight games to go after defeat by his old side.

FULL-TIME

Derby 0-1 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough celebrate
Getty Images

Middlesbrough have done it. A textbook away performance from Aitor Karanka's side finished beautifully by Patrick Bamford's solitary goal against his old club.

They have dominated defensively and struck Derby on the counter, and as results stand, move up to second in the table.

Meanwhile, it is a third defeat in five for Derby, who are dropping down the table.

FULL-TIME

Blackburn 2-3 Brentford

How big could that result be for Brentford? Andre Gray's scrambled winner six minutes from time seals three points for the Bees, who twice had to come from behind.

FULL-TIME

Ipswich 1-0 Bolton

Ipswich celebrate
Getty Images

Big three points for Mick McCarthy's Ipswich. Jay Tabb's goal ends a run of four games without a win and sees them keep pace with those around them in the play-off hunt. Meanwhile, Bolton have now lost their last five away games in all competitions.

FULL-TIME

Cardiff 1-1 Bournemouth

Callum Wilson could have nicked a cheeky three points right at the death but his last-gasp header is just narrowly wide of the mark and the Cherries will have to settle for a point against a resilient Cardiff City.

CLOSE!

Blackburn 2-3 Brentford

Almost a late, late equaliser for Rovers as Tom Cairney volleys inches wide of the post.

FULL-TIME

Blackpool 0-3 Charlton

You can't say Charlton haven't deserved to take all three points home on the long journey back to south-east London as they have dominated from start to finish. It's not looking good for Blackpool, however, who look doomed already.

Cardiff 1-1 Bournemouth

An exciting end to proceedings in the Welsh capital as Bournemouth suddenly find themselves chasing the match as Cardiff search for a late winner. Eoin Doyle unleashes a deflected shot in the area which comes to nothing but had plenty of away fans worried.

GOAL

Wigan 0-2 Watford (Troy Deeney, 90+1 mins)

Wigan have been pressing, but it's Watford who have sealed the victory which could leave them top of the Championship this evening.

Fernando Forestieri was brought down by a sliding Emmerson Boyce, and Troy Deeney smashes in his second goal of the game from the spot, before blazing the ball into the stands in celebration. That goal meant a lot to him.

CLOSE!

Ipswich 1-0 Bolton

Big chance for Bolton goes begging. Craig Davies is unmarked at the back post but heads wide with minutes remaining. Let off for Ipswich.

Millwall 0-0 Brighton

Still goalless at The Den, but Brighton's Kazenga LuaLua tries to change that, cutting in from the left and drilling a shot which squeezes just wide of the right-hand post. We don't have much time for a breakthrough.

Huddersfield 1-1 Norwich

Norwich very much on the front foot now, with Huddersfield getting every man behind the ball to secure a point.

Can Norwich find a late goal and claim their fifth straight away win?

GOAL

Blackpool 0-3 Charlton (Johann Gudmundsson, 88 mins)

It looks set to be another miserable night for the Tangerines who have conceded a whopping 77 goals already this season as Johann Gudmundsson scores a cracking free-kick to put Charlton 3-0 up.

GOAL

Blackburn 2-3 Brentford (Andre Gray, 84 mins)

That could be a very big goal for Brentford with both Ipswich and Wolves in front.

Jota is the architect as he jinks his way into the box. Jason Steele saves the Spaniard's deflected shot but can only push the ball into Andre Gray, who bundles it home from close range.

Will that kill off Blackburn's play-off hopes?

Derby 0-1 Middlesbrough

Derby, who in truth have looked quite poor, have a great chance to level when a delivery into the box ricochets back to substitute Jesse Lingard, but the on-loan Manchester United man drags his effort wide.

Will they have a better chance?

Blackpool 0-2 Charlton

Changes all round as Tony Watt is replaced by Christophe Lepoint and Andrea Orlandi departs for Bright Osayi-Samuel who almost finds a consolation for the hosts but Stephen Henderson is on hand to tip his effort over the bar.

GOAL

Ipswich 1-0 Bolton (Jay Tabb, 79 mins)

Ipswich have their breakthrough and they won't care a jot about the scrappy nature of it. Bolton fail to clear their lines and the ball drops to Jay Tabb who hits a bobbling volley into the floor and it bounces into the net. Big goal for the Tractor Boys.

League One and Two update

Strange proceedings in League One as the sprinkler system comes on at Meadow Lane, forcing the players off the pitch in the game between Notts County and Rochdale. It soon restarted with a party-starting Balint Bajner making an appearance.

Meanwhile, Dean Saunders' Crawley are ahead at Port Vale thanks to goals from Isale McLeod and Richard Wood. MK Dons seem to be out of sight against Oldham with Ben Reeves putting them 3-0 up. In League Two, promotion-chasing Shrewsbury are 2-1 up against 10-man Morecambe who have had Andreas Arestidou sent off for a bad challenge.

Wigan 0-1 Watford

Watford go close to a second which would wrap up the game at the DW Stadium. Joel Ekstrand picks up the pieces after a free-kick and fires a low effort just wide of the far post.

The Hornets are currently top of the 'as it stands' table, with Bournemouth drawing 1-1 at Cardiff.

YELLOW CARD

Cardiff 1-1 Bournemouth

A bizarre moment at the Cardiff City Stadium sees Callum Wilson booked for deflecting home keeper Simon Moore's kick into the back of the net.

Entering the final 15 minutes around the grounds. Are we in for some late drama anywhere?

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 0-1 Middlesbrough

Steve McClaren is throwing that dice and hoping it comes up a six. He makes a double change, bringing on Jesse Lingard and Jeff Hendrick for the two Jamies, Ward and Hanson, in a bid to ensure his side don't lose ground on the top three.

GOAL

Huddersfield 1-1 Norwich (Wes Hoolahan, 67 mins)

Magic stuff from Wes Hoolahan, who scores within four minutes of leaving the bench. He gets free down the right-hand side and strokes a measured left-foot finish past goalkeeper Alex Smithies. The luck of the Irish on St Patrick's Day?

GOAL

Wolves 3-0 Sheff Wed (James Henry, 67 mins)

And that should be that for Wolves. Wednesday have had more chances since Wolves doubled their lead, with Marnick Vermihl and Chris Maguire both going close.

James Henry scores

But it's goals that change games and they hosts have their third as James Henry strides forward unchallenged before finding the top corner with a left-footed drive from 25 yards.

SUBSTITUTION

Ipswich 0-0 Bolton

Eidur Gudjohnson's night is over with the Icelander replaced by midfielder Barry Bannan.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 1-0 Norwich

Bradley Johnson, who was booked for handling the ball into the net in the opening minutes, is replaced by Irish playmaker Wes Hoolahan. Norwich still searching for an equaliser.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Ipswich 0-0 Bolton

Cole Skuse sends a rasping volley against the post before he is denied from the rebound by goalkeeper Ben Amos. Close for the Tractor Boys.

GOAL

Derby 0-1 Middlesbrough (Patrick Bamford, 64 mins)

Patrick Bamford scores
Getty Images

It had to be Patrick Bamford, didn't it? The forward, who had a successful loan spell with Derby last season, puts Middlesbrough ahead and it's nothing more than his side deserve from their start to this half.

Tom Ince lost possession on the edge of the Boro area, and Lee Tomlin broke quickly, laying in the on-loan Chelsea man, who rounded the goalkeeper and slotted in from a tight angle.

A happy St Patrick's Day for Bamford.
