Thanks for joining us

That just about concludes tonight's EFL action - thanks for your company.

It could yet prove to be a crucial night at both ends of the Championship table, as Fulham remain seventh - despite extending their unbeaten run to eight games - having missed the chance to go sixth, while Wolves earned a valuable win at Brentford and Blackburn go back to Lancashire with a precious point.

You can read more on all of tonight's football action here.

Until next time, good night.

League Two round-up

League Two leaders Doncaster Rovers enjoyed a a 3-1 home win over Notts County, while second-placed Plymouth dropped points at Wycombe.

At the other end of the table, Newport County won at Morecambe, which sees them climb off the bottom at the expense of Leyton Orient, who lost 5-0 at Accrington.

League One round-up

Eventually, it ends as a good night for League One leaders Sheffield United as they win 4-2 at struggling Swindon Town to sit eight points clear of second-placed Fleetwood.

Lowly Coventry remain rooted to the bottom of the table, and look doomed, after losing 2-0 at home to Southend.

FT: Fulham 2-2 Blackburn

So, Fulham miss the chance to move into the play-off places, as their game-in-hand on their rivals ends in that dramatic draw.

And while that result is good news for fans for Sheffield Wednesday, it is bad news for struggling Bristol City, who have dropped down into the bottom three.

Wolves' late win won't have gone down particularly well with Robins fans either.

Fulham rocked

FT: Fulham 2-2 Blackburn

David Pleat

It is an important goal. We knew Lucas Joao was going to be a threat in the air and, to be fair, he missed two headers earlier after coming on.

Tony Mowbray made some good substitutions, you have to say.

When the pressure came, late on, Fulham rocked a little bit.


Fulham 2-2 Blackburn

There's no time for Fulham to hit back. Rovers have rescued a dramatic, dramatic point.

FT: Brentford 1-2 Wolves

It could have been more for Wolves, as Andreas Weimann's penalty appeal is waved away after he went down in the box under a challenge.

However the visitors won't care a jot now as they claim all three points with two goals in the last 10 minutes, from Matt Doherty and Helder Costa.

That moves them up to 18th, four points clear of the bottom three.

Fulham 2-2 Blackburn

Lucas Joao levels for Blackburn! He turns in at the far post with possibly the last kick of the game.

That sends Rovers out of the relegation zone as it stands.

The celebrations from Joao are wild. He loves it!


Brentford 1-2 Wolves

GOAL (Joao)

Fulham 2-2 Blackburn



Fulham 2-1 Blackburn

Huge chance for Rovers! But neither Derrick Williams nor Lucas Joao can squeeze the ball in at the far post from a Connor Mahoney corner.

Brentford 1-2 Wolves

We're midway through five minutes of added time as Brentford finally show some urgency going forward.

Have they got the quality to snatch a point?

Fulham 2-1 Blackburn

We are into four minutes of added time at Craven Cottage.

Brentford 1-2 Wolves

There are some audible boos at Griffin Park but the home faithful can't really have any arguments with the scoreline.

The goal came from Brentford giving the ball away, and Ivan Cavaleiro put a ball into the box for Helder Costa to volley in first-time.

It was great technique at the back post and Wolves are on the verge of a massive, and unexpected, win.

GOAL (Costa)

Brentford 1-2 Wolves

What a turnaround!

Brentford 1-1 Wolves

A long last, Wolves get the equaliser that their endeavour has deserved.

Matt Doherty's name will go against the goal but it was Ben Marshall who did the legwork, providing a great cross for Doherty to ghost in and slam in.

Fulham 2-1 Blackburn

Substitute Cyriac restores Fulham's lead with a fine finish, on the run, sweetly tucking in from Ryan Fredericks' low, right-wing cross.

That's a massive moment for Fulham. Have they avoided dropping two points?

GOAL (Cyriac)

Fulham 2-1 Blackburn

Fantastic, first-time finish.

GOAL (Doherty)

Brentford 1-1 Wolves


Fulham 1-1 Blackburn

Rovers' Marvin Emnes - who won the penalty when he raced onto a through ball and was brought down by Tomas Kalas - goes into the book for a foul on Kevin McDonald.

Brentford 1-0 Wolves

From a neutral perspective, you kind of feel bad for Wolves here as they probably need the points more than their mid-table opponents.

They've thrown the proverbial kitchen sink at Brentford - hitting the crossbar and having shots cleared off the line, but they only have 10 minutes to salvage anything.

That Blackburn equaliser won't have gone down well among Wolves fans either...


Fulham 1-1 Blackburn

Fulham act swiftly to take off Stefan Johansen and bring on Cyriac.

Moments earlier, Johansen had sliced a shot wide for the hosts. They're desperate to regain their lead.

Straight down the middle

Fulham 1-1 Blackburn

Craig Conway fires his penalty straight down the middle and the visitors are level.

That could be a huge goal for Rovers, who are out of the relegation zone as things stand.

This wasn't in the script for Fulham! They have 10 minutes now to try and re-take the lead.

GOAL (Conway, pen)

Fulham 1-1 Blackburn

PENALTY (Blackburn)

Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Marvin Emnes is brought down and Blackburn, this time, do have a penalty...

Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Blackburn wanted a penalty a moment ago as Craig Conway went down in the area under pressure from Fulham defender Ryan Fredericks, but the referee felt there was nothing in it.

Now, at the other end, a Ryan Sessegnon shot is palmed away by Rovers' Jason Steele.

League One update

AFC Wimbledon 2-0 MK Dons

It looks like AFC Wimbledon may have the bragging rights over MK Dons this evening - Lyle Taylor's 68th minute goal gives them a 2-0 lead in the first league meeting between the sides at Kingsmeadow.

League Two update

Doncaster will end the night six points clear at the top as things stand - they have come from behind to lead 2-1 against lowly Notts County. Donny's nearest rivals Plymouth have just levelled to make it 1-1 at Wycombe.

A few teams have large leads - Portsmouth are now 4-0 to the good against Grimsby, while Crewe and Exeter both hold 3-0 leads against Crawley and Cheltenham respectively.

Leyton Orient are currently bottom of the table - they're 2-0 down at Accrington while Newport continue their mini-revival, leading 1-0 at Morecambe.


Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

From a Blackburn corner, substitute Lucas Joao heads goalwards, and he must score, but he nods it straight at the keeper.

That is a huge chance for the visitors.

Brentford 1-0 Wolves

Matt Doherty is the latest player to go close for the visitors as we approach the last 20 minutes, but he can only find the side netting form Danny Batth's flick.

Wolves have also seen efforts from Lee Evans and Nouha Dicko thwarted by heroic Brentford blocks.

The hosts have only really had one moment - Jota shooting wide from all of 25 yards.

Sinclair red helping Bury sink Rovers

Bury 2-0 Bristol Rovers

Like it or not, red cards happen, but not very many happen in this fashion...

Bristol Rovers midfielder Stuart Sinclair was given his marching orders shortly before the interval - with both of his yellow cards for diving!

We've not seen any replays, but safe to say he's either a silly man or an unlucky one.

And his side are paying the price as they now trail Lee Clark's side 2-0.

Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Stefan Johansen tries his luck for Fulham from 25 yards, as the hosts bid to double their lead, but his effort fizzes just wide.


Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Now Rovers' Darragh Lenihan is booked for a deliberate handball, just outside the area.

Fulham are not impressed with Lenihan there at all.


Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Fulham's Kevin McDonald is booked for a forceful tackle on Craig Conway.

It is a physical second half so far.


Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Chris Martin

Fulham bring target man Chris Martin on for Scott Malone, while Rovers replace Danny Graham with Lucas Joao.

League One round-up

Well that certainly wasn't in the script as far as Sheffield United were concerned, with Charlie Colkett and Ben Gladwin scoring in the space of seven minutes to bring Swindon level at 2-2, but Jay O'Shea has now restored United's lead (you can smile again, Jamie!).

Bristol Rovers , down to 10 men after the dismissal of Stuart Sinclair for two bookable offences, have fallen behind to a James Vaughan penalty at Bury.

Chesterfield's Dion Donahue has levelled it up at 3-3 in the goal-fest against Peterborough - meanwhile, promotion hopefuls Scunthorpe have made it 1-1 against Rochdale, with a goal by Paddy Madden, and Josh Vela has added a fourth for Bolton at Gillingham.

Fulham 1-0 Blackburn

Blackburn go close through Elliott Bennett but his low, fizzing effort from outside the box is saved by David Button.


Brentford 1-0 Wolves

The combination of Nouha Dicko and George Saville is causing Brentford problems.

This time Dicko cuts the ball back for his Wolves team-mate, who bends his shot inches wide of the post.

It's hard to see how Brentford will see this out if their opponents continue to dominate - still more than half an hour to go.

Meanwhile, in Europe...

Leicester 2-0 (3-2 agg) Sevilla

Over in that competition they call the Champions League, Leicester City (who were playing in League One less than 10 years ago, let's not forget) are heading through to the quarter-finals as things stand.

The quarter finals.

As in, the last eight.

Jamie Wilson:  The blades are going up! The blades are going up!

I wouldn't be so sure just yet, Jamie. Sheffield United are back in front at Swindon, having been pegged back to 2-2, but they are eight points clear at the top as things stand and have looked strong for months.
