Good night and thank you

Now just a month left in the season and it's as tense as ever.

Read all about tonight's matches right here and we'll be back with more live Championship action later this week.

Thanks again and take care.

Down at the bottom

At the other end, Bolton are almost down and out.

Bristol City and Rotherham share the spoils but MK Dons couldn't capitalise.

Tight at the top

So, just two points separate the top three after tonight's games.

Now just a three-horse race for automatic promotion after Hull's loss at Derby?

What a night

So that's all the results in on an eventful evening at both ends of the table.

More on what it all means shortly...


Reading 2-1 Nottm Forest

A second half turnaround from Reading sees them extend their unbeaten home run to eight games.

Oliver Norwood pulled an impressive 30-yard right-foot strike out of his locker for the winner.


Preston 1-2 Fulham

Fulham hold on to move seven points clear of the drop zone - a significant night in their season as they grab back-to-back wins.


Bristol City 1-1 Rotherham

Peter Odemwingie's second-half strike gives Bristol City a deserved point against Rotherham.

The Robins move seven points clear of the drop, while Neil Warnock's Rotherham are six points above MK Dons in the relegation zone.

Preston 1-2 Fulham

Seven minutes of injury time have been indicated at Deepdale, yes seven. How nervous are you feeling, Fulham fans?


Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Blackburn

Despite Craig Conway's goal, Blackburn soon crumbled. The Rovers midfielder was sent off minutes after his opener and Adam Henley's own goal. Ross Wallace wrapped up the points for Wednesday as their play-off charge continues.


MK Dons 1-2 Wolves

It's five games without a win now for MK Dons, as goals from George Saville and Jack Price earn Wolves a first away win in seven attempts

The Dons are in massive trouble, six points adrift of safety with six matches to play.


Burnley 0-0 Cardiff

Cardiff almost stole it late on through Kenneth Zohore's speculative lob, but Burnley's lead at the top is clawed back to a point with Middlesbrough also having a game in hand.


Middlesbrough 3-0 Huddersfield

It was the Gaston Ramirez show at the Riverside tonight as Middlebrough take advantage of Burnley's draw to move within a point of the Championship leaders.

Two goals and an assist, having been fouled in box for Boro's penalty, from the Uruguayan ensured all three points went to the hosts.


Ipswich 0-0 Charlton

A point is of little use to either side in this one.

It was strugglers Charlton who actually finished the stronger and Ipswich's goal drought goes on.

Fine turnaround from Reading!

Reading 2-1 Nottingham Forest

Reading are now in front against Forest and what a strike it is from Oliver Norwood! He picks the ball up 25 yards from goal and smashes the ball in off the right-hand post.

There's still about 10 minutes left as it was a 20:00 BST kick-off.


Derby 4-0 Hull

Derby have showboated all evening. What a performance. Bradley Johnson's double and goals from Chris Martin and Craig Bryson sealed a fine win against a Hull City side who struggled to get into the game and had their work cut out after having Moses Odubajo sent off.


Birmingham City 1-2 Brighton

The whistle goes at St Andrew's and third-placed Brighton have secured a vital win to avoid loosing ground on Middlesbrough.

GOAL (Bryson)

Derby 4-0 Hull

It might be in the 93rd minute, but Craig Bryson has raced into the box to work his way on to Chris Martin's pinpoint cross and tap in.


Burnley 0-0 Cardiff

Cardiff almost steal the points at Burnley as substitute Kenneth Zohore lobs a long ball over Tom Heaton but it lands on top of the crossbar much to the Burnley goalkeeper's relief.

MK Dons 1-2 Wolves

MK Dons have had plenty of shots as they try to get back into the game against Wolves, but they've not really tested keeper Carl Ikeme since falling behind. 

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Alex Revell have been brought on up front as Karl Robinson's side attempt to find a way through.


Birmingham City 1-2 Brighton

Loanee James Wilson almost seals victory for Brighton but his shot is deflected wide by Jonathan Spector. Can Birmingham punish them for that missed opportunity?

Ipswich 0-0 Charlton

Ipswich's slim hopes of a play-off spot are drifting away with positive results as it stands for both Sheff Wed and Derby.

It's Charlton who look the most likely to score as Bartosz Bialkowski is forced into two smart saves from Ademola Lookman and then Yaya Sanogo as the Addicks try to squeeze another win to keep their survival bid alive.

QPR also level...

Leeds 1-1 QPR

QPR have also level late on at Elland Road as Tjaronn Chery fires home from the penalty spot.

Birmingham City 1-2 Brighton

Brighton are a few minutes away from a big win at Birmingham. The hosts are yet to conjure up much of a fightback as they look to keep their faint play-off hopes alive. Is there time for a late twist?

Burnley 0-0 Cardiff

Second change for Burnley from Sean Dyche as he replaces Andre Gray with Ashley Barnes, but still no sign of any goals at Turf Moor fro the league leaders.

Reading equalise...

Reading 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Matej Vydra has just levelled matters at the Madejski Stadium. Still about 20 minutes left in that one.

Bristol City 1-1 Rotherham

Bristol City aren't happy with just a draw against Rotherham, and Lee Camp has made another tremendous save to keep the Millers on level terms. 

Camp somehow claws Peter Odemwingie's header behind for a corner, with Odemwingie substituted for Jonathan Kodjia moments later.

GOAL (Martin)

Derby 3-0 Hull

Chris Martin Derby

Well that's game over. Chris Martin puts a rocket of a shot into the bottom corner from 18 yards out and cans any chance of Hull finding anything from this game.

GOAL (Dembele)

Preston 1-2 Fulham

Fulham are back in the lead and it's bad news for MK Dons, Charlton and Bolton fans.

Moussa Dembele slots in after a smart shot from Ross McCormack is only parried. That lifts Fulham seven points clear of danger, as things stand.

Derby 2-0 Hull

Hull City are trying their hardest to get back into this game but they're leaving it late.

Sam Clucas works on to a fine ball from Ahmed Elmohamady and volleys an accurate shot which forces a fine save from Derby keeper Scott Carson.

Still 2-0 but can 10-man Hull find anything from this match?

GOAL (Ramirez)

Middlebrough 3-0 Huddersfield

Talk about commentators curse......but Gaston Ramirez has pulled something very very special out of the bag to extend Middlesbrough's lead.

The Uruguayan lines up a free-kick from 25-yards out before expertly curling the ball into the back of the net.

Elsewhere in the Championship & Football League

Leeds are now 1-0 up against QPR through striker Chris Wood in the Championship.

Zach Clough has pulled a goal back for Bolton, but they still trail 3-1 at Brentford.

At the Madejski Stadium, Reading are still a goal down to Nottingham Forest.

In League One Fleetwood lead Peterborough 2-0 and Oldham are still a goal ahead against Swindon.

Carlisle lead Hartlepool, Dagenham are 2-1 in front against Morecambe and it's goalless between Stevenage and Yeovil.

Bristol City 1-1 Rotherham

It's gone a bit flat at Ashton Gate since Peter Odemwnigie equalised for Bristol City against Rotherham.

A draw would take the Robins seven points clear of the drop and Rotherham six points clear, unless MK Dons can rescue something against Wolves.

Middlesbrough 2-0 Huddersfield

Not much happening at the Riverside as Huddersfield's leading goalscorer Nakhi Wells is somewhat surprisingly replaced by Rajiv van La Parra.

Middlesbrough also decide to make a change with injured midfielder Adam Clayton making way for Adam Forshaw as this game meanders along.

Ipswich 0-0 Charlton

Still no sign of a goal at Portman Road and if Ipswich fail to find the net for a third successive game that will equal their longest goal drought of this season.

Mick McCarthy's plumped for the change of David McGoldrick in a bid to prevent that from happening.

Burnley 0-0 Cardiff

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has wrung a change in a bid to break the deadlock at Turf Moor with Matt Taylor coming on for Scott Arfield.

Can Burnley find something to keep their three-point lead over Middlesbrough?

GOAL (Price)

MK Dons 1-2 Wolves

Wolves have turned it around at MK Dons, and James Henry is involved once again.

Henry drives forward down the right flank, and his low cross evades a number of bodies to find Jack Price to tap in from inside the six-yard box.

GOAL (Vermijl)

Preston 1-1 Fulham

The hosts are level and it could be a significant goal at the bottom, with Fulham looking to move clear of their relegation rivals. Substitute Marnick Vermijl skips past two defenders before lashing a low shot in off goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

Birmingham City 1-2 Brighton

Chances at either end at St Andrew's, as first Brighton nearly move 3-1 ahead when Jiri Skalak's effort almost goes in off Jonathan Spector, before goalkeeper David Stockdale parries an effort towards Jacques Maghoma, but the Birmingham winger can't quite get there to level the score.

GOAL (Saville)

MK Dons 1-1 Wolves

Disaster for struggling MK Dons as Wolves midfielder George Saville powers a header beyond Cody Cropper from James Henry's cross.

Karl Robinson's would be five points adrift of safety with six games to play if things don't change.

GOAL (Wallace)

Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Blackburn

Ross Wallace goal for Sheffield Wednesday
Rex Features

You could say the second half in this match has made up for such a tepid first half. Fernando Forestieri plays in the unmarked Ross Wallace who volleys home from close range.
