  1. Post update

    That's all from me but Luke Reddy is bringing you that little extra bit of quality expected in the Premier League as he guides you through Manchester City's trip to Crystal Palace.

  2. Today in the Football League...

    So let's take a final waltz through today's headlines...

    • Malky Mackay has been sacked by Wigan after 138 days in charge following the 2-0 home defeat by Derby County
    • Blackpool's relegation has been confirmed after Rotherham beat Brighton
    • Bournemouth stay top of the Championship after coming from 2-0 down to beat Birmingham 4-2
    • Norwich go second and Wolves replace Brentford in the play-off places
    • Preston move within five points of Bristol City at the top of League One
    • Burton match Shrewsbury's win to stay a point clear in League Two

    Lee Clark

    Blackpool manager Lee Clark has spoken about the club's relegation to League One and says their demise 'hurts'.

    The Seasiders boss tells the club's website: "We've got to do better moving forward and give the fans something to smile about again. All that has gone wrong this season has to be used in a way that ensures that it never happens again."


    Wolves 4-3 Leeds

    Wolves manager Kenny Jackett: "We can sense something happening and we just need to focus on getting our game right. If we keep improving and show a hunger to play good football, the crowd will follow us.

    "We feel that we've got a lot of goals in our team and it's tight between all of the sides. We're just pleased to be in and around it but we need to concentrate and finish the season off strongly."

  5. Wolves 4-3 Leeds

    Wolves celebrate

    Kenny Jackett's side are now right in the promotion mix after a six-game unbeaten run and four consecutive victories over Sheffield Wednesday, Derby, Nottingham Forest and now Leeds.

    They have not lost since 3 March, when they were bested at leaders Bournemouth, and remaining unbeaten at home for the thick end of two months.

  6. Technical gremlins

    Wolves 4-3 Leeds


    A few of you have mentioned that Leeds' third goal didn't appear in the commentary. Very strange, especially as it showed up in our own feed. Rest assured that the IT person responsible is currently clearing their desk and won't be back...


    Wolves 4-3 Leeds

    Wolves midfielder and goalscorer Dave Edwards: "I really think we're in with a shout of promotion. At 3-1, I was relishing coming on and hoping to get a goal but we gave away two really poor goals, which is unlike us. But the goals we've got in the team should put us in good stead."

    Wolves forward and goalscorer Nouha Dicko: "We have five more games and we believe in ourselves and think we can do well. We showed some quality today going forward and we are really looking forward to these five games."


    Maddy Raman: Decisive indecision from Wigan. Hire Mackay, back Mackay, sack Mackay.


    Wolves 4-3 Leeds

    Breathless stuff, that, but it is all over. The upshot is that Wolves move into the play-off places - sixth spot, to be exact - and are just five points off the automatic promotion places and six from the summit with five games remaining.

  10. Wolves 4-3 Leeds

    We're deep into stoppage time and Leeds are pressing. Can Wolves hold on?


    Wigan 0-2 Derby

    Wigan boss Malky Mackay spoke to the media after the defeat, but before he was sacked: "I thought we were terrific in the first half. We got 17 crosses into the box, and when you have that domination, that should bring you a return of at least two goals.

    "If that's the case, in the second half all you're talking about is game management, and seeing the game out. For all that good play, we go in 0-0 at half-time, and we know Derby will make a change because they have to.

    "I thought we showed courage and we kept going, and we had four chances in their six-yard box. To not take one of them is criminal as far as we're concerned."

  12. GOAL

    Wolves 4-3 Leeds - Dave Edwards

    That. Is. Some. Header.

    Dave Edwards leaps like a salmon, cranes his neck and whips his head through the ball to crash Kevin McDonald's delightful delivery past a helpless Silvestri.

  13. Wolves 3-3 Leeds

    Wolves need a goal if they are to usurp Brentford in the play-off places and they've got five minutes plus stoppage time to find one..


    Marco Silvestri bravely dives out at the feet of Benik Afobe to gather Bakary Sako's tempting low cross. Magnificently adhesive hands by the Italian.


    Adam Dawes: I don't have enough fingers to point the blame at the people responsible for Blackpool's season.

    Evan: Not so long ago we were doing the double over Liverpool. Now we've suffered two quick relegations.

    Tom Hana: Who's to blame? First off poor chairman who ruined club. Next reason, two words...Lee Clark!


    Wolves 3-3 Leeds

    Leeds' Billy Sharp checks his hair is sculped, clears his nostrils and gambols onto the pitch in place of Mirco Antenucci for the final eight minutes.

  17. CLOSE!

    Wolves 3-3 Leeds

    Crucial intervention by Gaetano Berardi, hurling himself in front of Rajiv van La Parra's strike with the Wolves substitute seemingly poised to score.


    Wolves make another alteration as they search for a winner, James Henry going off to be replaced by Rajiv van La Parra.


    Mackay was a controversial appointment by Wigan in November and, since then, the team have earned just 19 points from a possible 72. The Scot's tenure ends without him recording a home win.



    Wigan Athletic have sacked manager Malky Mackay after their 2-0 defeat by Derby County today, which leaves them 23rd in the Championship, eight points from safety.

    Wigan chairman David Sharpe said: "This is a very difficult decision to make but I feel that for the long term future of the club, there needs to be a change now. I wish Malky all the best for the future."

  21. GOAL

    Wolves 3-3 Leeds - Alex Mowatt

    Oooft, that's magnificent by Alex Mowatt. A slack Wolves are robbed of possession in their own half and the Leeds midfielder strides forward before arcing a splendid strike away from the grasp of Ikeme.


    Change for Wolves as the scorer of their opening two goals, Nouha Dicko, is replaced by Dave Edwards.

  23. GOAL

    Wolves 3-2 Leeds - Danny Batth og

    Oh, that's unpleasant. Alex Mowatt flights a hopeful ball into the Wolves penalty area and, as Carl Ikeme shapes his arms to gather, Danny Batth waves a leg at the ball and diverts it past his horrified goalkeeper. And this is a defence that has kept 17 clean sheets in 40 games.


    Brentford 2-2 Nottingham Forest

    Jota goal

    Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman: "It's a strange feeling because I thought we were the better side and created the better chances. So I am happy because we looked very comfortable but disappointed at how naive we were at the end.

    "We should have been more professional in seeing the game out but our mentality wasn't right and that is something at the club which I will be changing in the summer."

  25. Wolves 3-1 Leeds

    One Leeds player has just picked out Billy Sharp with a fine pass. Sharp is a substitute and is warming up on the touchline. Safe to say the visitors have been poor in the second half.

    Name omitted to protect the guilty party


    Brentford 2-2 Nottingham Forest

    Brentford manager Mark Warburton: "I was disappointed with the two goals we conceded but pleased with the character we showed to dig ourselves out of a hole. The fact that we never give up is testament to our attitude and fitness.

    "With that kind of character, and when we do what we do well, we are a match for anyone. The players know the best people in all walks of life are the ones that thrive under pressure and today we showed that's what we do."


    Wolves 3-1 Leeds

    Sol Bamba loves a tackle, doesn't he? The Leeds centre-back has just cemented Nouha Dicko to earn a booking. A less lenient referee might have considered waving a different colour card.


    Rotherham 1-0 Brighton

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton: "I can't say we deserved to get anything out of the game because of our first-half performance.

    "We need to start better in games and we have got to be more productive in that final third otherwise we will put pressure on ourselves. Our work in that final third has got to be more productive."

  29. CLOSE!

    Wolves 3-1 Leeds

    Benik Afobe should score his second but scuffs a very presentable chance narrowly wide after Nouha Dicko barrels down the right and picks him out with an adroit cutback.


    Cardiff City 0-3 Bolton Wanderers

    Bolton manager Neil Lennon on strike duo Eidur Gudjohnsen and Emile Heskey: "You never lose the ability even if the legs start to go. But if you have got legs around them then it's OK.

    "It's a great example to a lot of players in the Championship. There were a few eyebrows raised and a few sniggers behind our backs when we brought these two in, but people aren't laughing now."

  31. GOAL

    Wolves 3-1 Leeds - Benik Afobe

    It might have been scruffy, but that doesn't matter as Benik Afobe prods his 29th goal of the season past Marco Silvestri after Leeds fail to clear. That's the former Arsenal striker's fifth in seven games.

  32. Wolves 2-1 Leeds

    We're back under way at Molineux...


    Watford 2-0 Middlesbrough

    Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka: "It's frustrating because we played against a team which, without a lot of chances, scored two goals and that's the difference when you have three strikers who have scored more than 50 goals in a season.

    "We knew it was going to be a difficult game but after this game I told the players we are having a miracle. To play against teams like Watford, Bournemouth, who have been working with the same manager for four or five years, against Norwich players who were Premier League last season, we are doing amazing."


    Watford 2-0 Middlesbrough

    Slavisa Jokanovic

    Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic: "It's a good result for us. We stopped Middlesbrough and we found the space to start to play the football we strive for. We attacked very well and we defended very well and in my opinion we made one completely good game.

    "We played tactically very good football. We interpreted our situation very well, when to defend all together and when to choose the moment to attack, and how we're going to attack. I must be happy because my players understand what we expect."

  35. Join the debate at #bbcfootball

    Wolves 2-1 Leeds

    Andrew in Richhill: Don't count Wolves out of the automatic promotion picture just yet, but a win this evening is an absolute must if it's to happen.

    James Rossiter: Good game this for the neutral, expect a few goals with Wolves to win 3-2.

  36. Manager reaction

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham

    Birmingham manager Gary Rowett: "At 2-0 after 35 minutes it was some of the best attacking play we've had since I've been here. We caused one of the best attacking sides in the league plenty of problems. But we've got to be stronger mentally and see the half out, rather than coming in at 2-2."


    Degan Howard: I can't begin to tell the world what has gone wrong in 140 characters at Blackpool FC.

    Andy Mc: What's gone wrong at Blackpool? Simple, Karl Oyston.

    Finn: What's happened to us at Blackpool is purely down to an awful owner with no respect for the club.


    Wolves 2-1 Leeds

    Well, Wolves head inside for an orange segment in the lead but only after a fractious first half. Nouha Dicko's brace has Kenny Jackett's side on course for a victory that would move them into the play-off places.

  39. GOAL

    Wolves 2-1 Leeds - Nouha Dicko

    Wolves go ahead thanks to Nouha Dicko's second of the game and 12th of the campaign. The forward timed his run beautifully to elude the Leeds back four and, while most players would have taken the ball on into the box, Dicko screamed an early shot low past the bewildered Marco Silvestri.

  40. CLOSE!

    Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    That's more like it by Wolves. A lovely interchange between Benik Afobe and Kevin McDonald at the edge of the area gives Bakary Sako a sight of goal, but the hulking Sol Bamba hurls himself at the shot and the ball loops over the crossbar.

  41. Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    Well, that's unedifying. Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri has just biffed the ball from hand the length of the pitch and out for a Wolves goal kick.


    Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    They're still knocking lumps out of each other at Molineux and both Scott Golbourne and Danny Batth of Wolves have been booked for being just a little too over-zealous.

  43. Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    Much more of this and the ball will be black and blue. Both sides are scudding it back and forward without either maintaining any meaningful possession. It's bruising stuff consisting of 22 big boys knocking lumps out of each other.


    Lots of thoughts from you about what's gone wrong at Blackpool.

    Freddy Harper-Davis: Karl Oyston as well as a useless pitch, useless players, no spirit and no function, like Plymouth in many ways.

    Paul: Well it was the chairman's fault.

    Simon P Jones: First team in all four divisions to be relegated. Karl "judge me at end of season" Oyston you have been judged and found wanting.

  45. CLOSE!

    Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    This time it really was close, Silvestri thrusting up an arm to push away an instinctive effort by Henry after great work by Dominic Iorfa down the right.

  46. CLOSE!

    Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    Well, not that close, actually, as Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri flops on top of James Henry's powderpuff shot.


    A Blackpool fan

    What's gone wrong at Bloomfield Road?

    Andrew Gillibrand: Blackpool were as good as relegated in August, pity we had to endure 41 games, 51 players, two managers, one chairman to confirm it.

    Brian Sharratt: Nice to see the Oyston's investment strategy paying off. I used to be a regular at Bloomfield Road. Not any more.

    Aidan Williams: Let's be honest: What went wrong at Blackpool? Everything.


    Wolves 1-1 Leeds

    Mid-table Leeds might have lost the advantage but they are not playing like they have nothing at stake. First Sam Byram is booked for clattering Kevin McDonald, then debutant Kalvin Phillips is fortunate not to suffer a similar fate after tearing the Scottish midfielder's sock with an even more robust challenge. The youngster took ball and man.

  49. Manager reaction

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham

    Eddie Howe

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "Credit to Birmingham as they made it difficult for us. They're a tough team to beat, nothing we didn't expect but the key thing was that we stayed in the game, kept fighting and got those crucial goals before half-time. The crowd stayed with us, and our mental strength was key. We know we can beat anyone when we're at full pelt, and hopefully we can learn from this experience."

  50. GOAL

    Wolves 1-1 Leeds - Nouha Dicko

    Benik Afobe makes great progress on the right-hand side of the box and, although his low shot is skidding wide, Nouha Dicko is alert enough to ram the loose ball into the net from a tight angle.

  51. CLOSE!

    Wolves 0-1 Leeds

    Bakary Sako misses a splendid opportunity, slashing straight at Marco Silvestri after finding himself free at the back post. Might that prove costly?

  52. GOAL

    Wolves 0-1 Leeds - Charlie Taylor

    Oh dear. Kevin McDonald dwells in possession near his own corner flag and attempts to fizz the ball clear across his own area. However, his pass strikes Richard Stearman and falls for Charlie Taylor to slip past Carl Ikeme.

  53. Wolves 0-0 Leeds

    Wolves earn a free kick in a promising position after Scott Wootton rattles through Nouha Dicko. The Leeds defender is shown a yellow card but Dicko heads over James Henry's tempting delivery.


    Karl Oyston

    Ryan Houghton: I feel for Blackpool fans, prime example of owners ruining a club. Patient investor needed.

    Gary Marston: What went wrong at Blackpool? Putting their faith in a makeshift manager who hadn't won in 28 attempts at home for Birmingham.

    Chris Pohl: Karl Oyston needs to sell up before we drop down to League 2 and so on!

  55. Wolves 0-0 Leeds

    The first attempt of the game is from the hosts, who have started in a lively fashion. Nouha Dicko bursts into a pocket of space but drags a tame shot wide of the target from 22 yards.

  56. KICK-OFF

    Wolves 0-0 Leeds

    We're under way at Molineux, with a raucous crowd in fine voice and the sun splitting the sky. Lovely.

  57. Wolves v Leeds (17:15 BST)

    Before the game begins, the crowd pay tribute to Martyn Matthews, a Wolves season-ticket holder who was on board the Germanwings flight that crashed over the Alps last month. Wreaths are laid and applause rings rounds Molineux.

  58. Wolves v Leeds (17:15 BST)

    Wolves manager Kenny Jackett names the same XI that beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 on Friday.

    But Leeds counterpart Neil Redfearn makes three changes as 19-year-old debutant Kalvin Phillips, Liam Cooper and Mirco Antenucci replace Giuseppe Bellusci, Steve Morison and the suspended Rudi Austin.

    Wolves XI: Ikeme, Iorfa, Batth, Stearman, Golbourne, Henry, McDonald, Price, Sako, Afobe, Dicko

    Leeds XI: Silvestri, Wootton, Bamba, Cooper, Berardi, Murphy, Phillips, Mowatt, Taylor, Byram, Antenucci.

  59. Wolves v Leeds (17:15 BST)

    Neil Redfearn

    As for Leeds, the final six games of the season are about little more than fulfilling their obligations. The play-offs haven't been a consideration for some time, while they have enough of a cushion not to worry about slipping out of the division.

    But let it never be said that things are dull at Elland Road. Last week, irate head coach Neil Redfearn suggested the club may need to look for their fourth boss of the campaign as he considered his position following the suspension of his assistant Steve Thompson.

    His crime? Owner Massimo Cellino claims he "called our sporting director Nicola Salerno an offensive name in front of other people after the game at Fulham".

  60. League Two

    Neither of the top two made a decisive move, with Burton matching Shrewsbury's win from earlier in the day. The victory for the league leaders, though, may well have ended Wycombe's title hopes but their chances of automatic promotion remain good after Bury's defeat against Morecambe.

    There was no real change in the relegation scrap either, with each of the bottom four losing.


    Tim Arstall: Sorry to see Blackpool go, especially as a Birmingham fan with Lee Clark. He's a great fighter, but no tactical genius.

    Danny Rosamond: Disagree that Blackpool were a decent Premier League outfit, they were relegated after one season after all.

    Ben Watson: Never mind asking what's gone wrong at Blackpool? What went right is the question you should be asking... Well, you wouldn't get a response I'm afraid.

  62. Wolves v Leeds (17:15 BST)

    Kenny Jackett

    Could Wolves steal up the outside and clinch consecutive promotions after successive relegations in 2012 and 2013? Manager Kenny Jackett thinks so…

    "Are Wolves capable of getting into the Premier League and sustaining it? In my opinion, yes."

    Not much room for doubt there, then.

  63. The race for the Premier League

    Bournemouth's comeback from 2-0 down to win 4-2 at Birmingham means they are now top but there are just two points separating the top four. Promotion hopefuls Norwich, Watford and Derby were also winners, while Middlesbrough lost and Brentford drew. It's now time to hand over to Richard Winton, who will see you through the action between Wolves and Leeds.

    Championship table
  64. Wolves v Leeds (17:15)

    How do you think the Wolves players have spent the past couple of hours? Have they been keeping an eye on the scores elsewhere and monitoring the ever-shifting Championship landscape or has it been a case of putting fingers in their ears and chanting 'lah, lah, lah'?

    Either way, this afternoon's results means that a victory over Leeds this evening will not only propel them into the play-off places but will also leave them poised within five points of the automatic promotion places with six games remaining. Glory beckons.


    Rotherham 1-0 Brighton

    BBC Radio 5 live's Alistair Yeomans: "Great relief around the New York Stadium for the home fans. Rotherham seven points clear of the relegation zone for now.

    "Feel for Blackpool though. They have finally been put out of their misery after an awful season."

  66. Championship results

    Phew. That's all the 15:00 BST Championship games over and here are the results in the division so far today:

    Watford 2-0 Middlesbrough

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham

    Brentford 2-2 Nottm Forest

    Cardiff 0-3 Bolton

    Huddersfield 2-1 Ipswich

    Norwich 2-0 Sheff Wed

    Rotherham 1-0 Brighton

    Wigan 0-2 Derby

  67. Post update

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at the Goldsands Stadium: "A happy Easter Monday for Bournemouth, who kept Birmingham pinned down right to the final whistle, with Harry Arter rattling the post with a trademark left-foot rocket from distance, while substitute Kenwyne Jones is denied a second headed goal in two sub appearances as Blues keeper Darren Randolph keeps the score down to four.

    "Eddie Howe's side will take a one-point lead into the final five games of the season. Birmingham will hit the Bank Holiday traffic returning from the seaside, wondering what could have been after they led 2-0."


    Dean Blackhurst: Sad day for Blackpool. A day manufactured by the club owners. A disgrace.

    L Higgins: What's gone wrong at Blackpool? Well a Chairman that has lost the faith of fans and potentially players. Recipe for failure.

    James McDowell: You want to know what's gone wrong at Blackpool without our breaking any libel laws? Ok, let me try...sorry, can't do it.

    Blackpool relegated

    Rotherham 1-0 Brighton

    Rotherham's win at Brighton now means that Blackpool, who have 24 points from 40 games so far this season, are relegated and will drop down to League One.

  71. GOAL

    Brentford 2-2 Nottingham Forest - Jota (90+5 mins)

    A huge goal in the promotion race. Tommy Smith crosses and Jota heads home to level for Brentford.

  72. Post update

    Brentford 1-2 Nottingham Forest

    Brentford have a chance to equalise, proper drama but Tommy Smith's header is deflected wide for a corner.

  73. Post update

    Wigan 0-2 Derby

    If relegation-bound Wigan are looking for causes for their predicament this season they only need to look at their home form. After the game against Derby, they won't have won in 18 games at the DW Stadium since last August.

  74. Post update

    Brentford 1-2 Nottingham Forest

    It's non-stop Brentford pressure now. Seconds left. Andre Gray has a shot blocked. Forest keeping the ball in the corner now.

    Chris Humphrey makes it 3-0 to Preston against Bradford and that, surely, is that.

    Colchester have turned the match on its head against Barnsley and now lead 2-1 thanks to Jacob Murphy.

    Josh Wright has scored for Leyton Orient to make it 3-3 in what sounds like a cracking tussle with Gillingham.

    Wigan 0-2 Derby

    Former Wigan and Derby winger Kevin Kilbane

    "It's going to take something spectacular for Wigan to get out of the bottom three. They have five games left after this and, if Rotherham win, which they are doing, they will be eight points from safety."

  83. Post update

    Wigan 0-2 Derby

    Former Wigan and Derby winger Kevin Kilbane

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "That was a real mess of a goal from Wigan's point of view. Jason Pearce made a mess of a clearance and it fell for Darren Bent. It's no more than Derby deserve this half. They have been totally dominant since the introduction of Chris Martin."

  84. Post update

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham

    Eddie Howe

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at the Goldsands Stadium: "It's raining goals in an entertaining game at sunny Bournemouth, who have gone from 2-0 down to 4-2 up. Substitute Adam Smith has an effort blocked, only for left-back Charlie Daniels to smash a shot in, with the aid of the woodwork, from just outside the box. And it's not Blues skipper Paul Robinson's day - having conceded a penalty earlier, he's now been shown a straight red card for bringing down Callum Wilson as he bore down on goal."

  85. GOAL

    Brentford 1-2 Nottingham Forest - Andre Gray (80 mins)

    Oh hello. Brentford are back in this. Andre Gray takes the ball with his back to goal, holds off Kelvin Wilson and fires home past Karl Darlow from 16 yards.

  86. RED CARD

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham

    Birmingham are down to 10 men after Paul Robinson was sent off for a professional foul. I think we can say this one is done and dusted.

  87. GOAL

    Wigan 0-2 Derby - Darren Bent

    Johnny Russell puts in a dangerous cross which is missed by Derby striker Chris Martin but Darren Bent is on hand to score from close range.

    That is the cue for an angry Wigan fan to try to get to boss Malky Mackay's technical area, while other Latics fans start leaving the DW Stadium.

    Brentford 0-2 Nottingham Forest

    Thomas Whelan: Walker Jnr has now equalled his dad's scoring record for Nottingham Forest. Legend in the making.

    Des Walker scored one goal during his long Forest career. His 18-year-old son Tyler Walker put Forest ahead at Brentford.

  89. GOAL

    Brentford 0-2 Nottingham Forest - Todd Kane (77 mins)

    Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman - substitution legend. Tyler Walker came off the bench to give them the lead and now Todd Kane, who just replaced Walker, makes it 2-0 from close range into an empty net.

  90. Post update

    Wigan 0-1 Derby

    Derby County midfielder Will Hughes picks up his 10th booking of the season and will now miss his side's next two games against Brentford and Blackpool.

  91. Post update

    Wigan 0-1 Derby

    Former Wigan and Derby winger Kevin Kilbane

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "For all Derby's dominance in this half they haven't got a second goal. Wigan are still in the game. They need to get the ball to Leon Clarke, he's their biggest threat in the air."

  92. League Two

    Big, big goal for Burton as Adam McGurk puts them ahead of Wycombe. Should they retain that lead, they would return to the summit by a point.

    Another potentially pivotal strike has come at Hartlepool, where Southend have taken the lead. That, combined with the fact Tranmere are goalless with Luton, would mean that the Wirral side would haul themselves out of the bottom two.

  93. Post update

    League One

    Barnsley have been pegged back by Colchester, with Gavin Massey making it 1-1.

    Darius Henderson has pulled a goal back for Leyton Orient, who now trail Gillingham 3-2.

    Otherwise, it's as you were.

  94. Post update

    Rotherham 1-0 Brighton

    Matt Derbyshire has wasted a wonderful opportunity to double Rotherham's lead on the break, unable to find a way past goalkeeper David Stockdale when clean through.

    Into the final 20 minutes and, as things stand, Blackpool are going down.

  95. GOAL

    Bournemouth 4-2 Birmingham - Charlie Daniels (74 mins)

    Charlie Daniels celebrates

    Bournemouth trailed 2-0, well they're going to the top of the Championship now as Charlie Daniels fires home via the crossbar from the edge of the box.


    Brentford 0-1 Nottingham Forest

    Usually it's a snub for a substitute to be subbed, although in this case I think he's still be happy enough. Nottingham Forest bring off Tyler Walker - who came on the first half and scored 15 minutes ago - for defender Todd Kane.

    Norwich City 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday

    Norwich are looking on the way to a comfortable victory today and, despite Bradley Johnson's two goals, he does blemish his copybook with a booking for coming on to the pitch without the referee's permission after receiving treatment. Naughty.

    "Big chance for James McClean. He should be scoring from there. If he heads it into the ground then he scores but he headed straight at Lee Grant. Two big chances for Wigan in this game - both falling to McClean."

    Brentford 0-1 Nottingham Forest

    As things stand Brentford will drop down to sixth. Alex Pritchard, on loan from Tottenham, tries to change that with a curling effort from outside the box but it's off target.

    Wigan 0-1 Derby

    Talk about a game of two halves. Derby County were under the cosh in the first half but have been a different side since the break as they are now on top against Wigan. Thomas Ince scoops a shot over as the Rams go close to adding to their lead.

    "Their first was against the run of play. The combined age of the two players involved is 73. Emile Heskey chested down and Eidur Gudjohnsen volleyed home from 15 yards out ."

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Derby are playing with more freedom. Their front players are all expressing themselves and it's looking ominous for Wigan. They are just not in the game because of the tempo Derby are playing at and the addition of Chris Martin which has given Derby more options up front."

  111. GOAL

    Brentford 0-1 Nottingham Forest - Tyler Walker (61 mins)

    It's a first professional goal for Des Walker's (below) 18-year-old son, Tyler Walker. He takes a long ball in his stride, switches one way and then the other and slams home. Great goal!

    Bournemouth 3-2 Birmingham

    Patrick in Eastbourne: I would love to see Bournemouth get automatic promotion into the Premier League. Of all the teams in the running they are the ones most deserved. They have achieved the highest position this season in the history of the club and deserve the recognition.

  116. League Two

    Burton 0-0 Wycombe

    BBC Radio Oxford's Robyn Cowen: The second half is under way at Pirelli Stadium, where there have been chances for both sides. Wycombe will feel aggrieved that Burton still have 11 men after goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin was shown only a yellow card for handling outside the area. Manager Gareth Ainsworth is not best pleased...

    The greatest Icelandic player of all time, Eidur Gudjohnsen, puts Bolton ahead at Cardiff in the game with the least riding on it today.

    That's his third goal in three games for club and country. He also had a fourth child last week. Busy times for the 36-year-old.

    Wigan 0-1 Derby

    Former Wigan and Derby winger Kevin Kilbane

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "That is typical of a side struggling near the bottom of table. Wigan have dominated but they have been punished for not taking their chances. It was a good breakaway by Derby. Johnny Russell got himself free down the left hand side, the ball was bobbling when came to substitute Chris Martin but he finished it brilliantly. What a great introduction."

  124. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-2 Birmingham

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at the Goldsands Stadium: "It's the Kermorgant and Wilson show again here. Barely two minutes into the second half, the Frenchman plays in Wilson again, and when Blues skipper Paul Robinson is adjudged to have felled Wilson near the byeline, Kermorgant makes no mistake from 12 yards with a powerful shot to the keeper's right."

    Championship table

    As things stand, Norwich - who are beating Sheffield Wednesday - lead the table on goal difference from Watford, who won earlier today.

    Bournemouth are one point back, but will go top if they beat Birmingham - and you'd fancy their chances after coming back from 2-0 down.

    Boro lost to Watford earlier so are fourth, with Derby - who are drawing with Wigan - are one point above Ipswich, who are losing to Huddersfield, and Wolves, who play Leeds at 17:15 BST.

    As things stand Blackpool are down, thanks to Rotherham leading Brighton.

  138. League Two

    As it stands, Shrewsbury will go into the final five games of the campaign top of the division, with Burton being held at home by Wycombe.

    And Bury would benefit, too, moving to within a couple of points of the automatic promotion places with a game in hand should they hold on to their 1-0 advantage over Morecambe.

    At the other end of the table it's as you were, with the bottom four all goalless at the interval in their respective games.

    League One

    As it stands, Chesterfield are hanging on to their place in the play-off positions. They lead Crewe 1-0.

    Hot in pursuit are Barnsley, who are a goal to the good at Colchester and Fleetwood, who are 3-0 up and cruising against struggling Yeovil.

    At the bottom, Leyton Orient will slip into the bottom four - they trail Gillingham 2-1 at home, while Crawley will move out of the relegation places if they can hang on to their advantage over Oldham. They lead 2-0.

    Second-placed Preston are being held at Bradford, who have been reduced to 10 men.

  140. HALF-TIME

    It's half-time in our seven Championship games. An update of how the table looks now is coming up after updates from the other two divisions.

    Bournemouth 2-2 Birmingham

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at the Goldsands Stadium: "And just like that, Bournemouth draw level in first-half stoppage time as a slide-rule pass from strike partner Yann Kermorgant plays in top scorer Callum Wilson, who is coolness personified on the sun-drenched south coast as he slots the ball past Darren Randolph to silence Birmingham's noisy visiting contingent. Game on."

    Wigan 0-0 Derby

    Former Wigan and Derby winger Kevin Kilbane

    "Derby probably created the best opportunity of the first half with Thomas Ince down the right but Wigan have totally dominated. One positive for Derby is that they haven't conceded."

  146. Post update

    Bournemouth 1-2 Birmingham

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at the Goldsands Stadium: "Bournemouth have a lifeline - with the goal credited to defender Steve Cook, minutes after he nearly gifted Birmingham a third with a mistake at the back. Matt Ritchie fired in a corner, captain Tommy Elphick went up for a header which was blocked, and in a ruck of players, Cook was credited with the final touch.

    "Birmingham had looked happy with 2-0 - with Paul Caddis and David Cotterill taking an age to retrieve the ball from a ball-boy for a throw-in with nearly an hour still to play - but home spirits have been lifted after a below-par first half from Eddie Howe's men."
