That's a wrap

So, the top four in the Championship all pick up wins and are starting to create a bit of breathing space for themselves.

Sheffield Wednesday lose a bit of ground on them and Derby will have their turn tomorrow evening.

In League One, Rochdale and Oldham pick up victories while in League Two, leaders Northampton make it an impressive 10 wins in a row.

You can read the reports from all of the night's big games across the website now.

In the meantime, thanks for being with us.

Hull City celebrate


Reading 1-0 Rotherham

Hal Robson-Kanu's second half strike is enough to give Reading their first Championship victory in six matches.

Rotherham just couldn't find an equaliser but almost sealed a point deep into added time as Royals keeper Ali Al Habsi was forced to collect Jerome Thomas' deflected cross.

Reading 1-0 Rotherham

There are four minutes of added time.


Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 QPR

Sheffield Wednesday will rue the numerous missed chances they had at Hillsbrough after they are forced to settle for a draw with QPR.

The hosts dominated proceedings but were unable to take the lead, even after being handed a penalty just two minutes into the second-half.

Daniel Tozser's break away goal gave QPR the sucker punch but Atdhe Nuhiu atoned for his earlier miss from the spot with a bullet header that keeps the Owls three points clear of Birmingham in seventh in the table.

Reading 1-0 Rotherham

We are entering the final few minutes at the Madejski Stadium. Can Rotherham find a late equaliser?


Birmingham 1-0 Bolton

Birmingham have hung on to secure a narrow victory thanks to Clayton Donaldson's first-half goal.

They are now just three points off a play-off place, while Bolton remain second from bottom and are still to win away this season.


Middlesbrough 3-1 Cardiff

They had to battle for it after falling behind, but Middlesbrough earn a first win in six games.

Cardiff were second-best throughout the game, with second half goals from Gaston Ramirez and David Nugent enough to secure the win for Aitor Karanka's side.


Preston 2-1 Charlton

Callum Robinson's second-half goal proves the difference for Preston at Deepdale.That's four wins in a row for them now. Charlton remain bottom.


Burnley 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Burnley keep the pressure up on leaders Hull with a professional victory over Nottingham Forest.

The Clarets dominated before the break with Dorus De Vries making some fine saves. And although Forest improved after the break, a Jamie Ward chance aside, they struggled to create clear chances.

FULL-TIME MK Dons 1-1 Huddersfield

Nahki Wells' late equaliser secures ten-man Huddersfield a point at MK Dons, who stay six points above the relegation zone.


Bristol City 0-4 Brighton

FT: Boss wanted a reaction. He got one. 4-0 with Murphy, Baldock, Hemed and Wilson getting the goals; two in each half. Agard missed pen.

FT: Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

Peter Swan

Former Hull player on BBC Radio Humberside

What a performance. You can just see from the players' body language, they know they're performing well  - the whole club is on a high at the moment, and the skill from Diame was absolutely superb. 


Brentford 3-0 Wolves

A thoroughly miserable night ends for Wolves, whose winless run stretches to seven matches. Brentford, meanwhile, played with confidence as John Swift's double ends their own run of three matches without a win.


Bristol City 0-4 Brighton

A night to truly forget for Lee Johnson and his side.

Just as they look like grabbing a late consolation, Kieran Agard smashes his spot kick against the crossbar after he had been brought down in the area.


Leeds 1-1 Fulham

Fulham are reduced to ten men for the final minute of extra time as Fernando Amorebieta is shown a second yellow card.


Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

And that is that at Portman Road.

Hull stay top of the Championship courtesy of Mo Diame's cool finish just after the break.

Ipswich lose for a third time in succession.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

Close from Ipswich as first Freddie Sears' shot is tipped round for a corner and then Tommy Smith can't direct his header on target as Allan McGregor fails to claim the cross.

GOAL (Wells)

MK Dons 1-1 Huddersfield

Nahki Wells equalises for 10-man Huddersfield at MK Dons as he slots past debutant keeper Cody Cropper.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

Three minutes added time at Portman Road. 

Burnley 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Forest are struggling to create anything of note at Turf Moor. Burnley are set to remain just one point behind leaders Hull City in second. Just five to play, plus injury time.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

Closing moments at Portman Road and leaders Hull look on course to remain just that unless Ipswich can conjure up some late magic.

GOAL (Nugent)

Middlesbrough 3-1 Cardiff

That's as easy as you like for Dave Nugent and all three points are going to Middlesbrough.

Moments after the missed penalty, Albert Adomah finds Nugent with all the space in the world in the box and the striker slots it into the bottom corner from six yards.

It will be a first win in six for Aitor Karanka's side.

GOAL (Robson-Kanu)

Reading 1-0 Rotherham

The perfect time to score and it's Reading who have taken the lead. Hal Robson-Kanu strikes from 18 yards out to give Rotherham something to think about with another 20 minutes to play at the Madejski Stadium.

Diame to the bench

Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

David Burns

BBC Radio Humberside's Hull City Commentator

Mo Diame's come off to applause and shaken hands with Nick Powell who's come on for his league debut. It's the best I've seen him Diame play today, such a wonderful display of talent in the second half. 

Leeds 1-1 Fulham

Both sides go close to scoring a second as Stuart Dallas finds himself free at the back post but sends his first time shot wide of the post for Leeds.

Moments later Alexander Kacaniklic makes some step in the hosts box with a neat step over but his low shot is tipped wide by Marco Silvestri.

Birmingham 1-0 Bolton

A fine save from Paul Rachubka on his league debut for Bolton keeps his side in it.

The 34-year-old denies David Cotterill as the substitute goes close for the Blues.


Middlesbrough 2-1 Cardiff City

Gaston Ramirez is tripped by Matthew Connolly, but David Marshall dives low to his right to save Grant Leadbitter's weak penalty.

Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 QPR

Referee Andy Davies is being replaced by fourth official Graham Salisbury for an unknown reason, who comes onto the pitch to huge cheers.

There are around eight minutes remaining for either side to find a winning goal.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

Kevin Bru makes a surge to the Hull byline as Ipswich search for an equaliser, but the visitors can clear as the ball goes across goal.

Curtis Davies then goes close with a header at the other end.

Reading 0-0 Rotherham

After a first-half which saw Rotherham receive a whopping five yellow cards, it's all calmed down a bit in this game with neither side receiving a caution this side of half time.

Reading have come closest to taking the lead since the break as Ola John teed up Yann Kermorgant to try his luck from 20 yards but his effort went narrowly wide.

Still half an hour to go in Berkshire, can either side find a winner?

Middlesbrough 2-1 Cardiff

Jordan Rhodes' night comes to an early end as he is replaced by David Nugent.

The Middlesbrough striker missed some excellent chances in the first half, but made up for it with a headed assist to set up Gaston Ramirez's goal. 

MK Dons 1-0 Huddersfield

MK Dons have been unable to take advantage since Huddersfield were reduced to ten men early in the second half.

The visitors aren't creating much themselves though, having only had one shot on target so far.

GOAL (Little OG)

Bristol City 0-4 Brighton

All over now for sure at Ashton Gate.

Brighton have a fourth and although substitute James Wilson's header was heading goalbound from a deep free-kick, it's taken an unfortunate deflection off City defender Mark Little and diverted past his goalkeeper.

Birmingham 1-0 Bolton

Birmingham have brought on Jon Toral and David Cotterill as they try to kill this game off.

Bolton are still in it but a first away win of the season looks a long shot as they struggle to create anything clear-cut.

RED CARD (Lennon)

Preston 2-1 Charlton

Charlton are 2-1 down and are now a man down. Harry Lennon is sent off after a tussle with Preston's Joe Garner. It's not looking good for the Championship's basement side.

Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 QPR

Lucas Joao's introduction into proceeding's just before the hosts' equaliser has given Sheffield Wednesday a spring in their step and he sends a header just wide of Alex Smithies' goal.

Can either side grab a winning goal in the final 15 minutes?

Front-runners leading the way

All of our games in the Championship now have a goal after Sam Vokes' strike for Burnley. The top four are all winning. It's never dull in this league is it?!

Ipswich Town 0-1 Hull City

One change each for both sides with 20 minutes to go at Portman Road. Kevin Bru on for Ipswich and Chuba Akpom on for leaders Hull.

Steve Bruce's side have looked comfortable though since Mohamed Diame gave them the lead just after half-time.

Leeds 1-1 Fulham

Things have quietened down at Elland Road as Ross McCormack sends his free-kick from 25-yards out high into the South Stand.

There's a touch of handbags before the set piece is taken with Sol Bamba and Fernando Amorebieta earn a yellow card apiece for their part.

Elsewhere in the Football League

No second-half goals in League One so far, so it's still all square between Peterborough and Oldham and Rochdale lead Fleetwood 1-0.

In League Two, Oxford are now 4-0 up at Exeter, Wimbledon have taken the lead against Carlisle and leaders Northampton look set for another win. They're 2-0 up at York.
