  1. Post update

    That is it from me for today but please join us again tomorrow as the Premier League kicks back into life. We will have all the action, so join us again from 09:00 BST.

    It has been a pleasure. Cheerio.

  2. Manager reaction

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Derby manager Steve McClaren told Sky Sports: "We have only ourselves to blame.

    "We said at half-time 'let's be ruthless' and go for it. We got the goal and then we stopped. We thought the game was over. We were too negative and not ruthless enough.

    "It kind of sums up the last three or four weeks. We are conceding two goals every game and they are poor goals. You can't go into games needing three goals to win and we needed that tonight.

    "We have nobody to blame but ourselves for the situation we are in from where we were."

  3. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Derby boss Steve McClaren does not seem very happy with his side's defending. I'm not surprised either.

  4. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Middlesbrough are the big winners in the Championship today as they finish top of the pile, after moving above both Watford and Bournemouth with a win over Wigan.

    Just two points separates the top four though with six games remaining. How's your bottle?

  5. Player reaction

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Derby striker Darren Bent, speaking to Sky Sports: "We had the better chances so we're disappointed. I thought we played really well. We know results went against us today but we still believe. There are six games left, and we need to win at least five of them. I'm sure we can get the top two."

  6. Player reaction

    "Our aim is to finish top"

    Watford's man of the match: Adlene Guedioura: "I think it was unfair with the red card but we had to accept it and try to get back into the game. At half-time everyone in the dressing room was angry with the sending off and we wanted to fight in the second half to get a result.

    "It's a big suspense in this Championship but it is our aim to finish on the top.

  7. FULL-TIME

    Doncaster 0-3 Bradford

    The final whistle goes at the Keepmoat Stadium where Bradford have come away comfortable winners.

    Tony McMahon added a third in injury time after goals from Gary MacKenzie and Billy Clarke, with the Bantams are now up to seventh in the table. They're just three points away from the play-off places, while Doncaster stay 12th.

  8. The race for the Premier League

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Championship

    Derby may still be in the play-off places but sixth is the lowest they have been since September. A hammer blow for the Rams, who now haven't won in seven.

  9. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "You wouldn't begrudge Watford a point from this game, as well as Derby played. They dug in after the sending off and scored a brilliant equaliser through Odion Ighalo, with Adlene Guedioura playing a fantastic pass to find him."

  10. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Watford fans are in party mood in the away end. They may not have got the win they needed to move top of the Championship but, 2-1 down and with a man light, they are right to be delighted with the point.

    Derby on the other hand... there are a few glum faces around.

  11. FULL-TIME

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes tips over a header and that is that. A battling point for 10-man Watford and more disappointment for Derby.

  12. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Another wasted delivery from Derby and Watford clear. Still the hosts come though but Johnny Russell's cross is cleared. Another corner. Last chance surely?

  13. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Corner Derby...

  14. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    So close. Tom Ince's delicately chipped free-kick causes chaos in the Watford box but the ball is somehow hacked clear.

  15. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Tom Ince fouled by Craig Cathcart 25 yards out. Free-kick to Derby a chance. Can they win it?

  16. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Derby back in possession and they come forward again...

  17. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Another Derby cross wasted as culprit Johnny Russell holds his head in his hands. The home fans don't look too happy either. Now Watford attack...

  18. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Into injury time, with six minutes signalled. Still time for some drama. Who is going to provide it?

  19. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Ryan Shotton is bandaged up and ready to continue. Looks like Adlene Guedioura will continue as well. Both have to change shirts first though after a losing a bit of claret.

  20. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    The packed Watford end are enjoying themselves. Probably more than Ryan Shotton and Adlene Guedioura, who hold their bloodied heads after a collision.

  21. CLOSE!

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Jeff Hendrick takes advantage of some sloppy defending by Gabriele Angella but his pull back is cleared. It is all Derby now.

  22. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "Watford have five minutes left. They'll take a draw from here. Five minutes to survive."

  23. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Still Derby come forward but Heurelho Gomes gratefully gathers. Watford look happy with what they have.

  24. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Derby having plenty of the ball around Watford's penalty area but top scorer Chris Martin, on for Craig Bryson, heads over the bar. Can the big man grab a winner?

  25. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Will Derby's winless run stretch to seven matches? They need a goal in the last eight minutes to stop that happening.

  26. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    There is a winner in this match as Derby pile forward looking to take advantage of Watford's numerical deficit. Tom Ince fires over after a turn inside the penalty area. Watford still look dangerous on the break though.

  27. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "What a ball that is from Adlene Guedioura for Watford's equaliser (see 76 mins). He was looking the other way as well. It was perfectly weighted and Odion Ighalo provides the finish. An unbelievable pass."

  28. Post update

    Derby 2-2 Watford

    The hero a minute ago, Odion Ighaloalmost turns villain as he loses the ball and Tom Ince races through on goal. He looks certain to score but goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes keeps it out with his feet. What a last 10 minutes we have ahead. A Watford winner would move them top.

  29. Post update

    Doncaster 0-2 Bradford

    The away side have now doubled their lead - Billy Clarke is the man with the goal, hammering the ball past Stephen Bywater from 18 yards to put the Bantams two to the good. Under 20 minutes for Doncaster to find a reply.

  30. GOAL

    Derby 2-2 Watford - Odion Ighalo (76 mins)

    Derby have more work to do now as Watford level, and what a goal that is. Odion Ighalo chests the ball into Adlene Guedioura, whose brilliant curling pass falls at the striker's feet and he finishes calmly.

  31. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    Watford still coming forward. Derby have work to do yet to secure their first win seven.

  32. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "Darren Bent is looking in fantastic form - I haven't see him play with such energy in years - but up front for Watford it's a different story.

    "Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney are very similar in style and perhaps leaving Matej Vrydra would have given them something a bit different. Ighalo has given the ball away an awful lot. There's no rush from Derby. They can afford to be patient now they're ahead."

  33. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    Watford may be a man light and a goal down but they aren't giving up yet. A good spell of pressure by the visitors.

  34. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    A free-kick to Watford 40 yards out on the flank. The least said about that the better though as Daniel Tozer's delivery ends up behind the goal and in the Derby crowd. Horrible.

  35. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    Jesse, Jesse, Jesse. The Manchester United loanee is played through on goal by the impressive Tom Ince but, after too much dallying, the chance is gone and his shot blocked. Needs to do better.

  36. YELLOW CARD

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    'You don't know what you're doing' is chanted by the Watford fans towards referee Kevin Friend as he books Troy Deeney after clattering Ryan Shotton. Seemed fair enough to me.

  37. Post update

    Doncaster 0-1 Bradford

    As soon as we brought you news of a goalless draw at the Keepmoat stadium Gary MacKenzie pops up to give Bradford the lead with his first goal for the club, scrambling home after Doncaster failed to clear a Filipe Morais cross.

    Close to half an hour remaining in that one.

  38. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    Scotland danger man Ikechi Anya comes into midfield for Watford in place of Miguel Layun. An attacking move by the 10-men Hornets.

  39. Race for the Premier League

    So what has that done to the Championship table?

    Championship

    Not a great deal, although Middlesbrough will be feeling a lot more comfortable at the top of the table - for tonight at least. Derby are also up to fifth, pushing Brentford back into sixth. Seven points between the top eight.

  40. Post update

    Doncaster 0-0 Bradford

    It's all square at the Keepmoat Stadium where 12th are taking on 11th in the League One table.

    Curtis Main came closest to breaking the deadlock for Doncaster just before half-time, striking the post from the edge of the area, while James Hanson headed Bradford's best effort wide.

  41. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "Fantastic play from Tom Ince. He attacks the Watford defence, drops his shoulder, gets himself a yard and produces a brilliant finish. You hope the players you bring in can change things for you - we saw Kenwyne Jones score and earn Bournemouth a point earlier today - and Ince has done it for Derby."

  42. GOAL

    Derby 2-1 Watford - Tom Ince (57 mins)

    The protests from the home fans turn into cheers as Tom Ince gives Derby the lead. The Hull City loanee shows some magic feet to dribble the ball into the penalty area, gets a bit of luck as it cannons off a Watford foot back into his path, before firing clinically into the corner. Derby fans are bouncing now.

  43. PENALTY APPEAL

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Watford defender Gabriele Angella is a lucky man. First he appears to handle the ball in the penalty area and then he drags down Tom Ince in the box, Play is waved on both times but both could be penalties.

  44. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Jesse Lingard, Darren Bent, Tom Ince, Will Hughes. You have to wonder, why on earth are Derby struggling for form? That list of players wouldn't be out of place in the Premier League.

  45. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Ambitious from Derby's Jeff Hendrick as he fires over the bar from 25 yards. Watford won't mind that.

  46. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "Tom Ince actually should have shot but his cut-back ended up taking a dangerous deflection, with Heurelho Gomes somehow able to snaffle it round the post. There is that overlap that Ince does so well. Great work from Jesse Lingard to play him in."

  47. GREAT SAVE!

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Good reaction from Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes as he keeps out Tom Ince's deflected cross with his feet.

    At the other end, Troy Deeney has a header saved by Lee Grant before striking wide. The 10-man Hornets still can be a danger.

  48. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Cyrus Christie doesn't survive his first half howler as the Derby defender is replaced by winger Jesse Lingard. To be fair, it looks tactical as the hosts switch to a more attacking system but his error for Watford's opener can't have helped.

    Watford also make a change as defender Dan Tozer replaces striker Matej Vydra.

  49. KICK-OFF

    Derby 1-1 Watford

  50. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Championship

    Forty five minutes left in a thrilling day in the Championship and Middlesbrough fans will be enjoying the view...

  51. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Derby

    Derby may have looked a little nervy but there can be few arguments they didn't deserve that equaliser. More possession, more shots and more corners. Watford fans will be dreading a second half with 10 men.

  52. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "There's been an incredible transformation since the goal. You look around the stadium now and the crowd have taken an awful lot from Darren Bent's penalty. But Watford still have three players in their side up front who can really threaten and Derby will still have their work cut out."

  53. Post update

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "That was probably the biggest touch of the season for Derby. This could really turn their campaign around. A fantastic penalty from Darren Bent. Think about all the pressure that is on him there, but he wraps his foot round the ball and fires it home. Derby have deserved that."

  54. HALF-TIME

    Derby 1-1 Watford

    That equaliser would be enough to move Derby back into the top six. They will fancy all three now though.

  55. GOAL

    Derby 1-1 Watford - Darren Bent

    How Derby needed that. Darren Bent steps up and pings the spot kick into the top corner to put the Rams level. They now have an entire second half against 10 men - although Watford will be furious.

    Marco Motta can have no complaints about the penalty decision but a straight red? Not for me. The striker's touch was sideways and he looked to be heading back towards a crowd of players. I wouldn't call that a clear goal scoring opportunity.

    Darren Bent scores from the penalty spot
  56. RED CARD TO WATFORD

    Derby 0-1 Watford - Marco Motta

    Johnny Russell is downed by Marco Motta inside the penalty area as he looks to close in on goal. A straight red is shown - harshly in my opinion.

  57. PENALTY TO DERBY

    Derby 0-1 Watford

  58. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    How's your touch Darren Bent? The Aston Villa loanee is played through on goal by Richard Keogh's defence-splitting pass but, his first touch lets him down, and the chance is gone.

    Tom Ince then sees a shot deflected wide and the corner comes to nothing.

  59. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    And they almost do, as Will Hughes is dispossessed on the edge of his own area and Adlene Guedioura's powerful low strike is parried away by Lee Grant. So sloppy from the hosts again at the back.

  60. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Surely it won't be long before Chris Martin is introduced for Derby if things stay like this into the second half. Derby have had plenty of the ball but with so little final product. If I was a betting man, I'd have the Hornets to score next.

  61. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "I'm genuinely surprised by the reaction of the home fans so far. You look around here and everybody seems to be in such a negative mood. Sometimes you have to look at things from a bigger perspective than what the score line is in this one game. Derby are playing well, I don't understand it."

    Perhaps no wins in six is more to do with it Steve?

  62. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Tom Ince has looked a real danger down the right for Derby as his cross is flicked wide by Darren Bent. Considering Ince was linked with a move to Inter Milan in the summer, he should be able to do a bit of damage in the Championship mind.

  63. PENALTY APPEAL

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Tom Ince goes down on the edge of the penalty area under the challenge of Tommie Hoban. No contact though and miles outside the penalty area.

    At the other end Troy Deeney clatters goalkeeper Lee Grant as the Derby man just smothers the ball ahead of the striker's boot.

  64. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Things aren't going Derby's way as midfielder George Thorne limps off the field to be replaced by Jeff Hendrick in the middle of the park.

  65. CLOSE!

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    So close....... Will Hughes picks the ball up 20 yards from goal and unleashes a shot that flies inches wide of the post. Liverpool have been linked with the 19-year-old in recent months. Are you watching Brendan?

  66. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "When the goal went in you could see the faces on the fans around the ground just drop. 'Oh no not again.' The home supporters have just slumped back into their seats now. But Derby have played well up to this point and I think they'll show some mettle to get back into it."

  67. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Watford fans take a look at the Championship table. Quick. Yes, you are top of the pops.

  68. Post update

    Derby 0-1 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "The problem comes from Cyrus Christie losing the ball. Derby then get themselves into a real kerfuffle at the back and it's a really sweet finish from Matej Vydra on his left - that's his weaker foot too."

  69. GOAL

    Derby 0-1 Watford - Matej Vydra (23 mins)

    An absolute horror show for Derby as Watford take the lead. Defender Cyrus Christie will not want to see that again - although you get the feeling he will have to.

    First of all, he loses the ball cheaply on the right and then, after dropping into his penalty area, his clearance is charged down by Odion Ighalo. The ball falls to Matej Vydra and he makes no mistake with a clinical finish from inside the box.

  70. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Watford are in this match now. Marco Motta's floated ball from deep is towards Troy Deeney and the striker climbs highest to meet the ball with his head inside the penalty area. No problems for goalkeeper Lee Grant though as it takes a bounce before landing in his arms.

  71. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "What a great save from Heurelho Gomes at the near post, it was on target from Darren Bent and going in. Gomes was going the other way but just got a toe-end on the ball to turn it round the right-hand post.

    "Derby want to keep the enthusiasm of the crowd up, to keep up the belief they can win this game. They've had a poor run of late and just need to find their momentum again for the end of the season."

  72. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    A massive roar from the home fans as striker Chris Martin gets off the substitutes bench to warm up. The Rams' top scorer has been out for 10 games with a hamstring injury.

    At the other end though Odion Ighalo's low skidding effort is tipped wide by Lee Grant.

  73. GREAT SAVE!

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Darren Bent's volley from inside the penalty area is deflected wide for a corner and, from the resulting delivery, the striker's side foot from close range is brilliantly kept out by Heurelho Gomes's foot. Great save.

  74. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Better from Watford as they keep the ball for a minute or two. Not much goalmouth action going on though from either side.

  75. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Not this time. Troy Deeney heads well over from inside the penalty area. You don't want to give the striker too many chances though - he doesn't miss many.

  76. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Watford are just letting Derby have the ball and, so far, the hosts have been unable to hurt them. Surely if this level of domination continues much longer, the Rams will be rewarded?

    Corner for Watford though. Smash and grab time?

  77. Post update

    Derby
  78. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "It looks like Watford have come here primarily looking to be hard to beat; they've got 11 men in their own half when Derby have possession. The away side do have plenty of pace to threaten on the break though, with Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo."

  79. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Best break of the match so far as Derby's Johnny Russell bursts down the left but his cross from the bye line is hacked clear with Tom Ince waiting.

  80. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    It comes to nothing as a hopeful ball into the penalty area is headed clear. Watford need to get their foot on the ball. They have been woeful so far.

  81. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Free-kick for Derby 35 yards out. The box is packed...

  82. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Derby have had 72% of possession in the opening five minutes. Yet to create a chance of note though.

  83. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    One ray of light for Derby is that Watford have not been great against the top sides this campaign. They have made a slow start here as well. Have they touched the ball yet? A couple of times perhaps.

  84. Post update

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Derby looked favourites for automatic promotion just a few months ago and now, going into tonight's game, find themselves outside of the top six. How they need something to turn for them - and quick.

    A positive start from the hosts as they dominate early possession.

  85. KICK-OFF

    Derby 0-0 Watford

    Here we go then. One final push on a bumper bank holiday Friday of Championship football. Game on.

  86. Post update

    Derby v Watford (19:45 BST)

    Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "After Chris Martin picked up his injury Derby completely fip-flopped. They went from a position where you thought it would be them and one other to go up to just hanging on to the play-offs. They will want to win this one, with another biggy against Brentford at home coming up in a couple of weeks. Watford, they'd go top if they can win it. It's a fantastic prospect ahead."

  87. Post update

    Derby v Watford (19.45 BST)

    Derby have been suffering a bit of a wobble in recent weeks, having not won any of their last six games, losing four. They haven't won since February and need a point at least today to move back into the top six.

    Watford on the other hand lost their last game 1-0 against Ipswich - their first defeat in seven games. Victory takes them top. The teams are out.

  88. Martin puts a smile on McClaren's face

    Derby v Watford (19.45 BST)

    Chris Martin

    Derby fans will be pleased to hear the striker is in the squad today, albeit on the substitutes bench.

  89. Post update

    Derby v Watford (19.45 BST)

    We have already had two leaders in the Championship today, are we about to see Watford become the third? Kick-off is five minutes away.

  90. Manager reaction

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth

    Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy: "It was a valuable point against the best side in the league. But it is always frustrating when you have not won the game after conceding a late equaliser.

    "But I've got to be totally honest and say Bournemouth deserved a point. They've taken a very expensive centre forward in Kenwyne Jones who has repaid some of that money.

    "My aim has always been to be involved in the promotion shake up. We have flirted with the top two and then dropped down - who knows where we will end up. I'll maintain my mantra that it only matters where you are after the last game - not with six games to go.

    "I think it will go to the bitter end for the top two and the top six - my lads are up for the scrap."

  91. Post update

    Derby v Watford (19.45 BST)

    Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

    "I wouldn't like to be brave enough to pick the teams which will finish in the top two at the end of the season.

    "I picked Norwich - before they plummeted after that dive in form - because of their squad. They kept good players and added to it - so they have probably got the strongest squad.

    "Some teams have overachieved and are surprise packages. At the moment you've got Boro, Bournemouth and Norwich in the top three and I'd have to say I think it will be two out of those three."

  92. Team news

    Derby v Watford (19.45 BST)

    Watford will go top of the Championship with a win and bring back forward Matej Vydra as one of two changes.

    Top scorer Chris Martin is back on the bench for Derby after missing 10 games with a hamstring injury. A point would get them back into the top six.

    Derby XI: Grant; Christie, Keogh, Shotton, Forsyth; Thorne, Hughes, Bryson; Ince, Russell, Bent.

    Watford XI: Gomes; Motta, Cathcart, Angella, Hoban; Layun, Watson, Guedioura; Ighalo; Deeney, Vydra.

  93. Post update

  94. Manager reaction

    Brighton 0-1 Norwich

    Alex Neil

    Norwich are up to third place in the Championship after beating Brighton earlier - the Canaries having lost just once in the past 13 matches. But boss Alex Neil still thinks there is "more to come" from his team.

    "Although we didn't play at our best today we still managed to win the match - and that is pleasing," says the 33-year-old Scot.

    "We're going to have to win ugly and do whatever it takes to go home with the points.

    "With our work-rate, determination and effort I thought we deserved to win. But I still think there is more to come."

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth

    Former England and Ipswich defender Terry Butcher

    BBC Radio 5 live at Portman Road

    "A good point for both sides. Bartosz Bialkowski made some great saves in this match, he was certainly the busier of the two goalkeepers. Once again a corner was almost Ipswich's undoing but Bialkowski produced another fabulous stop to deny Yann Kermogant.

    "I do think Bournemouth will go up. I think Norwich will be other team to join them, but it is so difficult to call the top of the Championship."

  97. FULL-TIME

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth

    It is. A draw isn't a disaster for either side, who both remain very much in the promotion mix. Bournemouth dominated for long periods but, on sheer work rate alone, few would begrudge Ipswich that point.

  98. GREAT SAVE!

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth

    So close to a winner as Yann Kermorgant's header is parried away by a diving Bartosz Białkowski. That should be it.

  99. Post update

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth

    Corner for Bournemouth. Surely not?

  100. Post update

    Probably not. Harry Arter, just back on from a head injury, scuffs a shot wide from 20 yards. Into the last minute of injury time.

  104. SUBSTITUTION

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth

    Luke Varney hobbles off and is replaced by Matt Clarke. A heroic shift from the Ipswich midfielder. Four minutes of injury time signalled.

    "Tommy Smith was marking but Kenwnye Jones just muscled him out of the way. Anybody on the far post might have been able to get the ball away, but Jones found the corner with a glancing header. Now we really have got a game on our hands. What a substitution."

  111. GOAL

    Ipswich 1-1 Bournemouth - Kenwyne Jones (82 mins)

    Yes they can and it is Bournemouth debutant Kenwyne Jones. The Cardiff loanee shows his strength in the penalty area as he meets Matt Ritchie's corner from the left to head home the equaliser. Still time to win it for the Cherries.

  113. GREAT SAVE!

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Almost game over. Luke Varney, who has chased everything all night, blocks a Bournemouth clearance before closing down on goalkeeper Artur Boruc but his shot is saved.

    Stunning work rate from the hosts.

  114. SUBSTITUTION

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Cometh the hour, cometh the man? Adam Smith replaces Ryan Fraser on the left flank for Bournemouth, while striker Kenwyne Jones makes his debut in attack in place of defender Steve Cook. The Cherries are going for this.

    Chris Wood replaces Freddie Sears in attack for Ipswich.

  115. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    The longer this goes on, the more Bournemouth look like being frustrated. Remember they need a win to remove Middlesbrough from the top of the Championship but, with less than 15 minutes to go, they would surely settle for a point?

  117. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Good forward play from the isolated Daryl Murphy for Ipswich. He bursts towards Bournemouth's goal, holds the ball up with no teammate anywhere near him and wins a free kick on the bye line. The resulting delivery comes to nothing.

  118. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Ipswich are suddenly looking threatening on the break as Bournemouth get increasingly desperate in search of an equaliser. Either side could score the next goal with the chances being created.

  120. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth are showing signs of running out of ideas. Ipswich have worked their socks off throughout and remain looking extremely solid.

    Just as I say that, the visitors almost equalise but Matt Ritchie is crowded out after an almighty scramble and another opportunity goes begging.

  121. SUBSTITUTION

    Birmingham 2-1 Rotherham

    Steve Evans

    Rotherham manager Steve Evans isn't the sort of character to mince his words - and he certainly didn't after the 2-1 defeat Birmingham earlier.

    The fourth-bottom side were denied a spot-kick when Matt Derbyshire went down under Rob Kiernan's second-half challenge as the Millers chased an equaliser while trailing 2-1. It is fair to say Evans was fuming...

    "It was the worst refereeing decision I've ever seen," said the Scot. "We have just seen the DVD. It is as nailed on as they come.

    "It's a penalty and a red card. If you don't give them then you might as well give the game up.

    "You might as well get a 12-year-old in who has blue blood in his veins to come and referee.

    "I'm not questioning the integrity of Dean Whitestone, I'm just saying he was atrocious today - you can write that in capitals for the Football League."

  123. Post update

    Luke Varney smashes the ball high, wide and not very handsome from 20 yards for Ipswich. It all wastes a bit of time though.

    "Mick McCarthy may be thinking about bringing on an extra midfielder now and saying, come on on to us and break us down. Freddie Sears has played really well but an option would be to take him off and leave Daryl Murhpy to lead the line on his own up front."

  125. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth have enjoyed 64 % of possession and have had 14 shots. But, so far, it is all in vain. There is a nervous atmosphere around Portman Road at the moment though.

  126. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    This is backs to the wall stuff by Ipswich. Daryl Murphy is hanging around up front but, apart from him, it is everyone behind the ball and defend. Can they hang on to sit fifth in the Championship?

    Richard Chaplow - on loan from Millwall - replaces Teddy Bishop in midfield for Ipswich. A bit more of a physical presence for the hosts perhaps? They are under the cosh.

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Matt Ritchie has to do better there. Brett Pitman plays him in on the right but, instead of shooting straight away, he cuts inside and his curled effort is blocked. Callum Wilson shoots into the side netting soon after as Bournemouth keep on coming.

    "It's been end-to-end attacks here so far, wonderful stuff. It's a wonder there's only been one goal. I thought we were about to have one there for sure because Bartosz Bialkowski was in no man's land.

    "Mick McCarthy is unhappy on the touchline, his defenders have been giving Callum Wilson too much space in attack. He really is fleet-footed, Wilson."

  132. GREAT SAVE!

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Ipswich's hero of the first half, goalkeeper Bartosz Białkowski, just about stops Charlie Daniels' lobbed effort. The Bournemouth man thinks he has lofted it over the onrushing stopper but the ball strikes his stretched arm and bounces clear. How long can Ipswich keep the Cherries out?

  133. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Ipswich aren't just on the defence though. The dangerous Freddie Sears breaks towards goal but drags a weak shot wide from 25 yards. Sears has been a constant menace.

    Wigan manager Malky Mackay, whose side drop to second bottom and are five points from safety, tells BBC Sport: "I am really disappointed for the players. I thought they were terrific and went toe to toe with a Middlesbrough side that's on the verge of being promoted.

    "In the second half we had two or three good chances and overall we deserved something. We showed real courage.

    "If we keep playing like that I can't ask for any more. I can ask for a bit more quality around the goal but that's been a problem from the start of the season."

    Karanka

    Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka on the race for the Premier League: "I made a mistake a few months ago when I thought it was a race between Derby, Bournemouth and us.

    "Now you look at the table and Derby will be outside the play-offs if they lose their game tonight.

    "That means this league is very difficult. We are in a good position but we have to keep going."

  140. Middlesbrough top of the league

    Middlesbrough replaced Bournemouth at the top of the pile earlier today following a 1-0 win at home relegation-threatened Wigan. A result that isn't allowing manager Aitor Karanka to get carried away.

  141. HALF-TIME

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Freddie Sears' early strike is enough to give Ipswich the advantage and move into the Championship top six as things stand. Bournemouth have dominated for the majority though and will fancy rescuing at least a point from this after the break. The visitors need a win to return to the top of the league though.

    "Bournemouth really do play some lovely stuff. There's a fantastic understanding between their players up front, and brilliant movement. But they haven't won here since January 1990. I think they've only played twice, but still."

  143. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth keep pressing as we enter first half injury time. They just can't find the final touch though. Two minutes of injury time.

  144. GREAT SAVE!

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bartosz Białkowski is at it again. This time the Ipswich stopper dives to his right to keep out Matt Ritchie's low 20-yard drive. A frustrating half for the visitors, who have looked good.

  145. PENALTY APPEAL

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Luke Varney is screaming for handball against Tommy Elphick inside the penalty area as he attempts to pull the ball back from the bye line. You'll be lucky Luke. The ball clearly hits the Bournemouth defender's stomach.

  146. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bartosz Białkowski again keeps Ryan Fraser out. A bit more luck about this effort though as Fraser's left-wing cross is horribly mishit but almost loops into the top corner. The Ipswich goalkeeper just about retreats to tip the ball over.

    Former England and Ipswich defender Terry Butcher

    BBC Radio 5 live at Portman Road

    "Wonderful play from Bournemouth, very good link-up play to find Ryan Fraser free on the left. I think he maybe should have hit that one first time, but it was an excellent save by Bartosz Bialkowski nonetheless."

  148. GREAT SAVE!

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Brilliant by Ipswich goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski. The ball is worked across to Ryan Fraser on the left side of the penalty area but his stinging drive is parried away by the diving stopper. The Cherries will feel they have done enough to be level.

    "This game really has flown by. It's been a cracking game of football so far. Even though Ipswich lead, Bournemouth are looking very comfortable on the ball, playing lovely little triangles, and have good movement up front. You'd think it's only a matter of time before they get a goal, but Ipswich are defending well."

  150. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    A teasing cross from top scorer Daryl Murphy is headed away for an Ipswich corner. Can they get a second? No, a poor delivery by Teddy Bishop is headed clear.

  151. PENALTY APPEAL

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Brett Pitman is a busy man. This time he goes down after a tangle of legs with Ipswich's Cole Skuse on the edge of the penalty area. Never a penalty.

  152. CLOSE!

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    A chance out of nothing for Brett Pitman. Ipswich's Teddy Bishop is one relieved man as the striker shoots straight at goalkeeper Bartosz Białkowski from inside the penalty area after a shocking pass backwards by the midfielder. Pitman should do better.

  153. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Freddie Sears' all-action style and pace is causing Bournemouth problems. The Cherries are looking a little shaky at the back at the moment.

    BBC Radio 5 live at Portman Road

    "The pitch here at Portman Road was heavily watered before kick-off, and it's playing very fast and very furious, hence the pace of his match. There have also been a few slips - Bournemouth's Harry Arter being the latest to lose his footing. It looked like he was on water skis."

  155. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    The Ipswich fans are in good voice while Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe looks a tad worried on the sidelines. No panic yet though.

  156. YELLOW CARD

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Some nice possession from the visitors before Luke Chambers is booked for a late - a very late - challenge on Ryan Fraser. The Ipswich man is cautioned, despite his somewhat hopeful protests. Bournemouth free-kick 25 yards out. but Matt Ritchie's cross is cleared.

  157. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Freddie Sears has scored five goals since signing for Ipswich from League One Colchester in January and he is proving a real handful this evening. Only a desperate recovery tackle from Steve Cook prevents him from cutting in from the right. The hosts are getting on top.

    At the other end Zeki Fryers gets a little bit carried away as he strikes wildly over the bar from 25 yards. A cracking start to the match.

  163. CLOSE!

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth go so close again. This time Charlie Daniels' cross from the left is just about hacked clear before Brett Pitman curls a shot from inside the penalty area over the bar with the outside of his right foot. Great reaction from the Cherries but still they trail.

  164. Post update

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth

    What kind of reaction can Bournemouth produce? A positive one. Midfielder Andrew Surman ghosts into the Ipswich box, latching on to Callum Wilson's right-wing pass, but can only flick past the far post.

    Terry Butcher

    Former Ipswich and England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Daryl Murphy is not marked at the far post - the Bournemouth defence don't get out quick enough to him. He plays the ball in to Sears and he can't miss from there. It was a basic goal to concede.

    "This is what Ipswich needed - it's the given the crowd and the players a lift. Let's see where they go from here."

  166. GOAL

    Ipswich 1-0 Bournemouth - Freddie Sears

    That wasn't in their plans though as Freddie Sears is given the freedom of Portman Road to sweep home Daryl Murphy's squared pass to give Ipswich the lead. Don't forget a win moves the hosts into the play-off spots.

    Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last six matches, while Ipswich have won their last two. Two form teams and both in with a shout of promotion. This should be a cracker.

    Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy poses for a selfie with a young fan. Game on.

  170. League Two

    Table-topping Burton's lead is down to one point after a late goal from Plymouth held the Brewers to a 1-1 draw. Shrewsbury beat Dagenham 2-0 to stay in second, but Wycombe, in third, were beaten 3-2 by Oxford.

    Strugglers Hartlepool and Tranmere both failed to hold on to leads to record draws that leave them perilously close to back-markers Cheltenham, who lost at York.

    And Portsmouth fans who made the long, long journey to Carlisle will have plenty of time to fume over their side's inability to hang on to a lead - the Cumbrians equalised deep into stoppage time at the end of the full 90. Still, at least those long-suffering Pompey fans have got a long weekend still to enjoy when they eventually get home.

  171. League One

    Bristol City saw their lead at the top reduced to eight points following their 1-1 draw at Oldham, and Preston's 1-0 win over Rochdale at Deepdale.

    Chesterfield were the only side in the play-off spots to play today, and they turned around a two-goal deficit at Yeovil to win 3-2, leaving the Somerset side eight points adrift of Colchester, who beat Port Vale 2-1, at the foot of the table.

    Championship

    All over at The Den, where Millwall give their hopes of Championship survival a massive shot in the arm. Two late goals give the 10-man hosts a vital 2-1 victory over Charlton in a nervy south London derby.

    Millwall move up to third bottom, four points behind Rotherham who lost at Birmingham. Neil Harris's side trade places with Wigan, who drop to second bottom after their limp 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough.

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Wigan

    Huge cheers around the Riverside as the referee toots his final whistle - Middlesbrough go top thanks to Patrick Bamford's first-half winner. But Aitor Karanka's men may only be there for a few hours, depending on how Bournemouth and Watford fair later on. Wigan are deep in relegation bother.

  188. GOAL

    Fulham 1-3 Brentford - Alan Judge (90 mins)

    Millwall 1-1 Charlton - Magaye Gueye (79 mins)

    Millwall aren't flirting with relegation - they are having full-on, passionate affair with it. However, the Lions give themselves hope of breaking away from the drop-zone (a slim one admittedly) by equalising in the South London derby. Magaye Gueye smashes in a leveller from a tight angle, putting Millwall a point closer to a dramatic escape.

  192. Post update

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Wigan

    Oh dear! Wigan winger James McClean, eyes fixed on the ball, stood in acres of space at the far post, and lines up a crisp volley. In his mind he sees the net bulge. In reality, he barely makes contact with the ball, slicing it horribly towards the corner flag for a goal kick. Third-bottom Wigan must take those chances if they want to drag themselves away from that downmarket place that is Relegation City.

  193. CLOSE!

    Birmingham 2-1 Rotherham

    Matt Derbyshire goes close to his second of the game and an equaliser for Rotherham. His header from Jack Hunt's far-post cross trickles across the face of Darren Randolph's goal to safety. As it stands, Rotherham remain five points ahead of Wigan - who are also losing.

  194. League Two latest

    Relegation-threatened Tranmere were ahead at Stevenage - but Charlie Lee has equalised, and if it stays at 2-2 then Rovers will still be in the bottom two. Below them lie Chesterfield, who are still 0-0 at York.

  195. CLOSE!

    Norwich City are pushing for a second as Alexander Tettey's goal-bound shot is deflected away. The Canaries know this game isn't won yet.

    Wycombe's hopes of going second look to be heading west, Oxford now lead them 3-1 thanks to Kemar Roofe's second goal of the afternoon. In a mid-table clash, AFC Wimbledon scored twice in quick succession just before the hour to lead Northampton, but the Cobblers have pulled it back to 2-1.

  198. League One latest

    Runaway leaders Bristol City take the lead at Oldham through Aaron Wilbraham, but the hosts peg them back almost immediately thanks to Carl Winchester.

    Chesterfield, chasing a play-off spot, have turned it around at Yeovil, where the struggling home side did lead 2-0 but the Spirerites have rattled in three in 10 minutes to lead 3-2. Colchester, one place ahead of Yeovil in the table, have taken the lead at Port Vale through George Moncur.

  199. Post update

    Fulham 1-2 Brentford

    Fulham are knocking on the door and Alex Kacaniklic looks the likeliest to get the equaliser. The Swede hits a 25-yard free-kick just over, before a last-ditch tackle stops him running in on goal to meet Danny Guthrie's through ball.

  200. GOAL

    Millwall 0-1 Charlton - Alou Diarra (67 mins)

    Millwall might have an extra man - but it is Charlton who have the opening goal in the south London derby.

    "Wigan have had that one chance from Marc-Antoine Fortune (see 16:22), but in general there has been nothing from them at all going forward. There's been no fight, no endeavour."

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Wigan

    Lee Tomlin has been given the nod by his Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka - and the substitute almost has an instant impact. His angled shot is saved by Wigan keeper Ali Al Habsi, who keeps his side within a goal of the Championship leaders.

  204. PENALTY TO WOLVES

    Nottingham Forest 0-1 Wolves

    Henri Lansbury what are you doing? The Nottingham Forest midfielder hacks Bakary Sako down inside the penalty area. Clear penalty.

    Birmingham 2-1 Rotherham

    Rotherham are desperate for an equaliser at St Andrew's as they look to extend their five-point gap between them and the relegation zone but it is Birmingham's David Cotterill who goes close with a shot over the bar from 20 yards.

    BBC Radio 5 live at Craven Cottage

    "Now Fulham have hope. Ross McCormack driving the ball low to the left of David Button's goal. Button had no chance. McCormack has now gone up front, and the home side are right back in it."

  207. GOAL

    Fulham 1-2 Brentford - Ross McCormack (67 mins)

    ...and Ross McCormack scores from the spot. The Scotland striker, who apparently cost £11.5m in the summer when he arrived from Leeds, halves the deficit with his 13th goal of the campaign.

  208. PENALTY TO FULHAM

    Fulham 0-2 Brentford

    Fulham need a lifeline - and now they have one. Recent signing James Husband is hauled down by the Bees defence in the penalty box. Ross McCormack to take...

  209. GREAT SAVE!

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Wigan

    Finally Wigan are starting to show some fight at the Riverside. A long pass from the Latics defence picks out half-time substitute Marc-Antoine Fortune, whose neat touch gives him a yard in the Boro box. The striker curls towards the bottom far corner, but home keeper Dimitrios Konstantopoulos - who has hardly broken sweat all afternoon - drops quickly to his left to push clear.

  210. GOAL

    Brighton 0-1 Norwich - Bradley Johnson (62 mins)

    Huge relief for the travelling Norwich fans as Bradley Johnson side foots Nathan Redmond's low cross from the right into the top corner from an angle. A calm finish to move Norwich into third in the Championship as things stand.

  211. CLOSE!

    Nottingham Forest 0-1 Wolves

    Wolves go close to doubling their lead as Bakary Sako latches on to a mistake by Michael Mancienne, he crosses low but it's hooked clear.

  212. League Two latest

    Bury, in third place, are 2-0 up at Cambridge thanks to Tom Soares' goal - Cambridge could be looking nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone if it stays like that.

    Hartlepool have squandered their two-goal lead and are now being pegged back at 2-2 by Newport.

    Brighton 0-0 Norwich

    Norwich still struggling to break down Brighton as they look for a goal that would take them into third in the Championship. Midfielder Wes Hoolahan is replaced by Nathan Redmond in the centre of the pitch.

  214. GOAL

    Fulham 0-2 Brentford - Stuart Dallas (58 mins)

    Oooof! Pick this one out. Stuart Dallas doubles Brentford's lead with a blistering strike, arrowing a 20-yard effort into the top corner. The Bees are well on course to finish the day in the top six.

    Millwall 0-0 Charlton

    Millwall may have a numerical advantage against south London rivals Charlton - but they are not utilising it. The Lions, who are second bottom, badly need maximum points if they are to climb out of this relegation-shaped hole that they currently in.

  216. YELLOW CARD

    Fulham 0-1 Brentford

    Brentford's Jota goes into the book for a cynical foul on James Husband, the left-back making his debut on loan from Middlesbrough. One change at half-time to mention - Tim Hoogland replaced Jack Grimmer at right-back for the home side.

  217. Post update

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Wigan

    Almost a Middlesbrough second! A wonderful flowing move by the home side ends in Adam Reach unselfishly laying the ball off to unmarked team-mate Albert Adomah. But the Ghana winger can only find the side-netting from a tight angle. Wigan survive - for now.

  218. Top six

    Cham

    This is how the Championship table looks after Wolves' opener. Middlesbrough still sitting pretty at the top of the table after taking s 1-0 lead at home to Wigan.
