Goodnight

That brings to an end our marathon EFL coverage for the day. 

Hope you all enjoyed following it with us and we shall see you tomorrow for the Old Farm derby between Ipswich and Norwich in the early afternoon kick-off.

In Leagues One and Two

Bolton
Rex Features

Bolton remain the only EFL team with a 100% record after victory over Fleetwood, while Scunthorpe are on their coattails in second after a 5-0 thrashing of Gillingham.

Morecambe sit pretty at the top of the early League Two table after a narrow win over Yeovil. But as we all know, these tables are pretty much pointless right now. Sorry Shrimps fans.

In the Championship

So to recap, Huddersfield are two points clear at the top of the Championship table after a dramatic 2-1 victory over Barnsley - Jonathan Hogg scoring his first league goal for the Terriers late on to win it.

Garry Monk tasted victory for the first time as Leeds manager in the day's early kick off and there were also wins for Newcastle, Nottingham Forest and Wolves.

FT: Huddersfield 2-1 Barnsley

David Wagner

Those are celebrations that are fitting of top of the league, where Huddersfield sit after a 2-1 win over Barnsley.

Huddersfield head coach David Wagner told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It's a picture of the quality and the togetherness we now have that everyone who starts and plays from the bench knows their job.

"We'd like to keep it going, but we can never promise the result. We can only promise fight and a working attitude.

"We are very fit and able to change the games in the last 20 minutes. The atmosphere is very good after the Barnsley game.

"We say in Germany 'only the hard worker has luck' and against Barnsley we had luck, but if anyone deserves it, then I think it is this squad."

'I can't be too critical'

FT: Bristol City 0-1 Newcastle United

Despite creating chances throughout the game, the Robins did not take a point from the match.

Bristol City boss Lee Johnson: "There were loads of positives for us. We lost to one quality finish after being caught out by a great ball. 

"We have a bit of work to do with our forward play. The strikers need to know when the ball is going into the box so they can time their movement and we took too many touches at times. But I can't be too critical because the players gave everything. 

"It's hard to talk know because I so wanted to give our supporters a win but when I analyse things later I know I am going to be a lot happier."

'It was a step forward'

FT: Bristol City 0-1 Newcastle United

Newcastle players

After a difficult start to the season, Dwight Gayle's goal gave Rafael Benitez's side back to back wins.

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez: "The clear message to the players is they need to work as hard as they did and then use the quality we have.

"It's great to have a team who can go forward and score goals but you also need organisation and team spirit to get results. For me, it was a step forward in the confidence of the players because we now know we can win games with our forward play or by defending strongly.

"Dwight Gayle is a clever footballer with good movement and he is a great finisher. We saw all those things and I am hoping he is a crucial player for us."

FT: Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Just before we go, we'll bring you some reaction to some of today's earlier Championship fixtures.

FULL-TIME

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

After all the late drama in the EFL today I thought we might get some at the iPro tonight but it wasn't to be.

Villa hit the post twice in the first half but Derby were certainly best in the second half and neither can get the breakthrough.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Razza Camara wins another corner for his side and the diminutive winger is the target of Will Hughes' corner, but he can only head over the bar.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Will Hughes' corner is too deep and Villa manage to get Richard Keogh's header down clear. Not long left now.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Chris Martin's cross into the area is cleared for a corner by Villa defender Tommy Elphick...

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Four minutes to be added on... will we have one final chance?

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Derby win a free-kick about 30 yards out and Chris Martin is the man who steps up to take it. It's pretty poor and the Coldplay lead signer holds his head in his hands.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Derby keeper Scott Carson really takes a chance with Jordan Ayew closing him down but the Villa forward can only get a loose foot to it and the ball is cleared from danger.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

We saw two penalties earlier today at Stoke for shirt-pulling and many would argue on that evidence, Derby could have had a penalty at the iPro.

Aly Cissokho is living dangerously, almost riping the shirt off Richard Keogh but none of the officials take any action.

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

The substitute is subbed.

Libor Kozak, who came on in the first half for the injured Rudy Gestede, is replaced by Andre Green. Jordan Amavi also comes on in place of Jack Grealish.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Jason Shackell flicks on a corner to Richard Keogh, but the Derby defender can only loop the ball over the bar.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Bent is in on the action almost immediately, but Cyrus Christie's cross into the area is just too deep and the striker can't connect properly.

In Bent and Chris Martin they have some good options for balls into the area do Derby.

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Darren Bent, bought for a fee reported to rise to £24m by Aston Villa in 2011, comes on in place of Tom Ince against his old club.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Libor Kozak comes close to giving Villa the breakthrough when Derby defenders fell asleep at a corner and he sneaks in around the back post but heads wide.

Villa fans the other side of the stadium thought that was in and are jeered for doing so.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Villa goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is nowhere the free-kick but Tom Ince's strike whistles past the post. Will we see the deadlock broken today?

Post-match reaction: 'I still want to strengthen'

FT: Fulham 2-2 Cardiff

Cardiff players
Rex Features

The Bluebird have five points from their opening four games after goals from Joe Ralls and Anthony Pilkington.

Cardiff manager Paul Trollope: "It was a topsy turvy game. We were disappointed with the first half. We didn't play to our capabilities but we turned it around. Credit must go to the players. 

"I'm pleased with the two goals, they were fantastic strikes, but I was disappointed not to have taken the three points as we led going into the 86th minute. I still want to strengthen. It's no secret we are looking to strengthen in the transfer market."

YELLOW CARD

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Yellow card galore here.

Ashley Westwood brings down Tom Ince on the edge of the area and Westwood's Villa team-mate Aly Cissokho is booked for his protestations. Dangerous position this...

CLOSE!

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Without Rudy Gestede's aerial threat you might think Villa would be struggling to dominate at corners but Tommy Elphick's strike from Ross McCormack's delivery is cleared off the line by Will Hughes.

So close for Villa.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

I love manager on the sideline pictures, and this one is no exception. What on earth is Roberto di Matteo signalling to his Aston Villa players here?!

On the pitch, Leandro Bacuna's strike from the edge of the area is deflected wide for a corner.

Roberto di Matteo
PA

Post-match reaction: 'He can be a big part of my squad'

FT: Fulham 2-2 Cardiff

Ryan Sessegnon
Rex Features

Fulham's 16-year-old Ryan Sessegnon scored the opening goal before Kevin McDoanald for the hosts.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic: "Ryan can be good for us. He made a great impact for us. I'm sure in the future he can be big part of my squad and help us. He can play in different positions.

"My team showed great spirit, ambition, desire and character to come back and win a point. We know how hard the Championship is, I'm not disappointed that we didn't win."

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Craig Forsyth's afternoon is over. Chris Baird, newly retired from international football with Northern Ireland is the man to replace him.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Forsyth is up and running gingerly on the sidelines. Derby fans applaud him, but is it wise to continue with a man with a history of knee injuries?

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Derby full-back Craig Forsyth and Villa midfielder Gary Gardner are both down on the floor receiving treatment. Forsyth injured his knee ligaments last season and looks to be nursing a similar area.

YELLOW CARD

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Cynical foul from Ross McCormack and he is rightly booked. Derby fans up in arms, whatever that means.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Derby have a corner but Tom Ince's deliver is punched away by Pierluigi Gollini and Tommy Elphick clears the second ball into the area.

Derby midfielder Craig Bryson tries to get onto the loose ball ahead of Ross McCormack but doesn't, and is booked for the third time this season.

YELLOW CARD

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Will Hughes, making his 150th appearance for Derby, is booked for a cynical foul on Jordan Ayew as the Villa forward ran into space.

Post-match reaction: 'We are disappointed not to have won'

FT: Blackburn 2-2 Burton

Tom Naylor
Rex Features

Tom Naylor's late goal means Burton have four points from four games in their first ever season in the Championship.

Burton Albion manager Neil Clough: "As pleasing as it is to get an 88th-minute equaliser, we are disappointed not to have won the game.

"I thought we played very well over the course of the game and made lots of chances. We looked a real threat from set-plays and we deserved at least a point."

Get involved #bbcefl

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

BBC Radio Derby's Owen Bradley likes what he sees.

Derby have a made a terrific start to the second half. 4-4-2 now, by the way. #dcfcfans

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Possible goalsaving tackle from Aston Villa captain Tommy Elphick as Tom Ince flicks the ball around him, but the Villa skipper gets in front of him to clear the ball. Had he not, Ince was through on goal.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Chris Martin almost gets on the end of the Cyrus Christie cross and Derby have certainly come out of the traps better in this second period.

I can start to imagine what Nigel Pearson said in the dressing room.

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Finally this game has come to life. Craig Forsyth breaks down the left-hand side and it's a real battle between him and Villa's Leandro Bacuna.

The Derby full-back wins the runs of the ball but can't get it under control and Villa clear.

CLOSE!

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Tom Ince
Rex Features

Tom Ince has to do better there. Derby striker Chris Martin flicks the ball on to the onrushing winger and he's bearing down on the goalkeeper but he cannot really get enough much power on the shot and the keeper gets the ball away.

From the resulting corner Richard Keogh's header is cleared off the line by Ashley Westwood.

YELLOW CARD

Derby 0-0 Aston Villa

Leandro Bacuna is the first man in the referee's book for a late tackle on Johnny Russell. No complaints from the Villa full-back.
