  1. Goodbye

    So, Bournemouth's march towards the Premier League continues but Norwich and Middlesbrough are snapping at their heels. Three games remaining and still no one knows who is going to win automatic promotion. This is going right down to the wire. Thanks for your company.

    Bradford City 0-6 Bristol City

    BBC Sport's Brendon Mitchell at Valley Parade: "A memorable night to cap a memorable season for Bristol City fans, tonight will go down as one of the most remarkable evenings in the club's history.

    "Steve Cotterill's side, who are celebrating in front of the travelling band of supporters, produced an emphatic second-half display to secure promotion with three games to spare."

    Shrewsbury will have to wait to seal promotion to League One after a 1-0 defeat at Bury. Wycombe strengthen their automatic promotion hopes with a 101st minute winner against Exeter.

  5. League One

    Bristol City are promoted to the Championship after a stylish 6-0 win at Bradford but second-placed Preston let slip a 2-0 lead at home to Gillingham as MK Dons, 3-0 winners at Fleetwood, move to within three points of automatic promotion. Colchester's hopes of avoiding relegation are hit after a crushing 6-0 defeat at play-off hopefuls Chesterfield.

    Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

    at Madejski Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "Reading have played with great spirit, particularly in the last 15 minutes. Bournemouth are just sitting deep, hitting the ball long, which is most unlike them. But though Reading have a lot of spirit and honesty, they haven't got a lot of guile."

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    Five minutes added time at the Madejski Stadium.

    Elsewhere in the Championship

    Middlesbrough 2-1 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "Classy in the first half, obdurate in the second half from Middlesbrough. They were the better footballing side but take nothing away from Wolves, who put in some effort in the second half. But in the end the better team won."

  17. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth are around 10 minutes from another huge step to the Premier League. Eddie Howe's Cherrries are currently one point clear at the top of the table but a late Reading equaliser would send Norwich top.

    Magaye Gueye celebrates

    Substitute Gueye drills the ball into the bottom left-hand corner from the edge of the penalty area. It's his fifth goal of the season and surely enough to give the Lions a valuable three points.

  27. GOAL

    Ipswich 3-1 Cardiff - Daryl Murphy (90 mins)

    Ipswich make sure of the three points as Daryl Murphy adds their third in the final minute. It is a big three points as well as it means there is now breathing space between themselves and seventh-place Brentford.

  28. Post update

    Preston 2-2 Gillingham

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Peter Slater, at Deepdale for 5 live Sport: "Hope for MK Dons and Swindon in the pursuit of automatic promotion. Gillingham, from 2-0 down, have made it 2-2."

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Dave Woods, at Elland Road for 5 live Sport: "He missed a penalty in the first half did Dorrans, but what a finish here late on. One touch then fired it home. The Norwich players are in among their fans celebrating. They know how important this is."

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "If Middlesbrough get promoted and the other North-East sides stay up, which is the best side: Boro, Newcastle or Sunderland? In the first half here I was sure it was Middlesbrough. Now I'm not so sure."

  33. Post update

    Middlesbrough 2-1 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "It's almost all Wolves. They are seeing plenty of the ball and between now and the end of the game they will get one or two opportunities. The question is, can they take them?

    "Anything can happen at this point, and the tension is building..."

    Wolves are three points off the play-offs as it stands.

  35. League Two latest

    Second-placed Shrewsbury, who could have been promoted tonight, are still behind to Bury at the JD Stadium, while play-off chasing Stevenage and Southend are leading. Wycombe, in third, are currently being held 1-1 by Exeter, while bottom side Cheltenham are 3-1 up against Cambridge. It's turning into an intriguing night at the bottom as Hartlepool have drawn level against Accrington.

  36. Post update

    Millwall 1-0 Wigan

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Hamish Marshall, at The Den for 5 live Sport: "It's going from bad to worse for Wigan, who are now down to nine men. This has been a really bad-tempered affair. Wigan have one foot in League One."

  37. RED CARD

    Millwall 1-0 Wigan - Millwall's Ed Upson

    Upson, clearly unimpressed by Pearce challenge on O'Brien, pushes his opponent as he gets up from the challenge ... and follows him off for an early bath.

  38. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

    at Madejski Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "Bournemouth are containing Reading now, and they have gradually won some semblance of control in the centre of the pitch. I just cannot see Reading piercing this Bournemouth solidarity."

  39. RED CARD

    Millwall 1-0 Wigan - Wigan's Jason Pearce

    The Wigan defender goes in hard on Aiden O'Brien and sees red - after being confronted by Millwall's Ed Upson, who is also sent off.

  40. League One latest

    While Bristol City steamroll towards promotion, second-placed Preston are having to hold on against Gillingham, as Simon Grayson's side lead 2-1 at Deepdale.

    Chesterfield have seen what Bristol City are doing and said they fancy some of that, and are currently 5-0 up against Colchester.

    The Spireites' fellow play-off chasers MK Dons and Swindon are leading, but fifth-placed Sheffield United are behind 1-0 to already-relegated Yeovil.

    Struggling Walsall and Port Vale lead, but Crewe have been pegged back to 1-1 by Peterborough.

  41. Post update

    Millwall 1-0 Wigan

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Hamish Marshall, at The Den for 5 live Sport: "The Millwall fans are cheering. Abdou, with a header, has got them a goal that could give them a fighting chance of staying in the Championship. It was a powerful header from the penalty spot."

    That goal has lifted Millwall to within four points of safety in the 'as it stands' table.

  42. Post update

    Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Brentford

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Ian Brown, at Hillsborough for 5 live Sport: "They will love this at Portman Road. Lee, from just eight yards out, absolutely belted it into the net."

  43. GOAL

    Millwall 1-0 Wigan - Nadjim Abdou (74)

    Big goal for the hosts. Dan Harding's high cross from the left finds Nadjim Abdou and he heads home against the 10 men.

  44. GOAL

    Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Brentford - Kieran Lee (74 mins)

    Brentford's Premier League has just taken a dent. Kieran Lee lashes home from about eight yards. The Bees are stung.

  45. Post update

    Bradford 0-6 Bristol City

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Vicki Sparks, at Valley Parade for 5 live Sport: "If you're going to get promoted you might as well do it with an absolutely brilliant performance."

  46. League One

    Bradford 0-6 Bristol City

    It's getting ridiculous now at Valley Parade. It's 6-0 to leaders Bristol City who are heading for the Championship in style. There's going to be some sore heads in Bristol tomorrow.

  47. Post update

    Middlesbrough 2-1 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "If there is a weakness in this Middlesbrough side it is that their full-backs get caught too far down the field. Wolves' wingers are being given acres of space."

    Boro are third in the 'as it stands' table, one point behind second-placed Norwich and two behind leaders Bournemouth.

  48. Post update

    Leeds 0-1 Norwich

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Dave Woods, at Elland Road for 5 live Sport: "A brief flurry of Leeds pressure after the goal, but now Norwich looking much the more dominant force. They're dominating possession."

    Norwich are second in the 'as it stands' table, one point behind leaders Bournemouth.

  49. Elsewhere in Championship

    Jonathon Grounds equalises for Birmingham but within four minutes Jordan Rhodes puts Blackburn back in front. Brighton v Huddersfield remains goalless and Charlton still lead 1-0 at Bolton.

  50. Post update

    Bradford 0-5 Bristol City

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Vicki Sparks, at Valley Parade for 5 live Sport: "It's turning into a real party for those Bristol City fans behind the goal!"

  51. League Two latest

    Shrewsbury's hopes of being promoted this evening look to have been scuppered, as they are currently 1-0 behind at Bury, while Southend, whom the Shropshire side need not to win, are currently 2-0 up against Newport County.

    At the foot of the table, bottom club Cheltenham are back into the lead against Cambridge United thanks to Danny Haynes's goal. It looks like it could be a good night for the Robins, as the two teams above them, Tranmere and Hartlepool, are both losing.

  52. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

    at Madejski Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "A very close game, Reading playing with more aggression. I feel Bournemouth are holding their horses a little bit, unable to make progress."

  53. As it stands...

    Sheffield Wednesday 0-0 Brentford

    Brentford are losing ground in the Championship table as it stands - despite a battling performance at Hillsborough. They started the day level on points with sixth-placed Ipswich but are currently two points outside the play-off places.

  54. Post update

    Sheffield Wednesday 0-0 Brentford

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Ian Brown, at Hillsborough for 5 live Sport: "Brentford have upped their game in this second half, but Sheffield Wednesday are proving stubborn opponents."

  55. Post update

    Middlesbrough 2-1 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "This game looks 50/50 now. Wolves have come on really well after the break, and could sneak into a position to win a point. In the first half Boro completely dominated the midfield, but that's not the case now."

  56. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    The attendance at the Madejski Stadium has just been announced...18,917 with 4,259 from Bournemouth. That's what you call an impressive away following.

  57. Post update

    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Hamish Marshall, at The Den for 5 live Sport: "Wigan's Waghorn, the substitute, had only been on for a few moments but he's been shown the red card. He seemed to kick out at Harding, much to the annoyance of the fans. The referee brandished the red card even as Waghorn was still on the ground saying he was injured."

  58. RED CARD

    Millwall 0-0 Wigan - Martyn Waghorn

    Martyn Waghorn sent off

    The former Millwall loan striker lasts just eight minutes after coming on as sub. He's sent off for violent conduct after appearing to kick out at Dan Harding.

  59. Post update

    Bradford 0-4 Bristol City

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Vicki Sparks, at Valley Parade for 5 live Sport: "Bristol City are getting promoted to the Championship tonight, and they are doing it in style!"

  60. Post update

    Bradford 0-4 Bristol City

    Aden Flint celebrates

    The Bristol City promotion party is in full swing at Bradford. Another goal for the leaders. Aden Flint the scorer.

  61. Post update

    League One latest

    Leaders Bristol City are surely on their way into the second tier after Luke Ayling put them 3-0 ahead at Bradford.

    Second-placed Preston hold a 2-1 lead over Gillingham, MK Dons lead 1-0 at Fleetwood, while play-off chasers Swindon lead Rochdale 4-1, and sixth-placed Chesterfield are 5-0 up against Colchester.

    The U's fellow strugglers Notts County are still behind at Barnsley in new manager Ricardo Moniz's second game in charge, while already-relegated Yeovil are holding high-flying Sheffield United 0-0 at Huish Park.

  62. Post update

    Derby 4-0 Blackpool

    Pat Murphy

    at iPro Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "My word, Bent lashed his penalty into the net, high and to the right of the keeper. If he'd got a hand to that he would have been on his way to A&E!"

  63. Post update

    Back under way in the 20:00 BST starts. Can Championship leaders Bournemouth finish the job at Reading?

  64. GOAL

    Derby 4-0 Blackpool - Darren Bent (65 mins)

    Darren Bent penalty

    Darren Bent makes no mistake by hammering in the penalty to score his second of the night and Derby's fourth. This is turning into a very good night for the Rams, who really needed this win.

  65. PENALTY

    Derby 3-0 Blackpool

    Ryan Shotton is pulled back in the box and Derby have a chance to make it 4-0.

  66. Post update

    Preston 2-1 Gillingham

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Peter Slater, at Deepdale for 5 live Sport: "Preston paying the price for reducing their tempo in this second half..."

  67. Post update

    Bury 1-0 Shrewsbury

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Emily Croydon, at JD Stadium for 5 live Sport: "It's suddenly got very lively here - what a goal it was! A stunning right-footed shot from the edge of the area from Riley."

    Shrewsbury will be promoted to League One if they win and Southend fail to beat Newport.

  68. Post update

    Elsewhere in the Championship

    Clayton Donaldson has gone close to an equaliser but Blackburn still lead Birmingham thanks to Matt Kilgallon's goal. Brighton and Huddersfield are locked at 0-0, while Charlton lead Bolton thanks to Frederic Bulot's goal.

  69. As it stands...

    That's a huge goal for Norwich. They move back into the top two in the table - one point behind Bournemouth. Middlesbrough drop to third despite leading at home to Wolves.

  70. Post update

    Leeds 0-1 Norwich

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Dave Woods, at Elland Road for 5 live Sport: "It had to be Jonny Howson, on his first return to Elland Road. He was born just up the road and it was almost an apologetic celebration towards the Leeds support. But then he did punch the air for Norwich."

  71. Post update

    Bradford 0-3 Bristol City

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Vicki Sparks, at Valley Parade for 5 live Sport: "Bristol City are well on their way. The Bradford keeper looked initially as though he should have saved that strike from Ayling, but he was deceived by its flight."

  72. Post update

    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Now it's Wigan's turn to moan about a penalty they didn't get. James McClean appeared to be tripped in the area but the visitors' appeals were waved away.

    At the other end, Scott Carson pulls off a smart save to prevent Aiden O'Brien giving Neil Harris' team the lead.

  73. Post update

    Middlesbrough 2-1 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "Exactly what Boro didn't want. Konstantopoulos must do better there. He was beaten at his near post and there wasn't much power on the shot. Disappointing keeping, and that now puts a different slant on the rest of this game. Are they now going to be panicked, Middlesbrough?"

  74. GOAL

    Leeds 0-1 Norwich - Jonny Howson (57 mins)

    Jonny Howson goal

    Norwich spurned a good chance from the penalty spot in the first half at Elland Road but they have upped their game in the second and take the lead through a neat finish from inside the box from Jonny Howson, against his old club. Almost apologetic celebrations from the midfielder.

  75. GOAL

    Middlesbrough 2-1 Wolves - Bakary Sako (53 mins)

    Bakary Sakho celebrates

    Wolves are on the comeback trail thanks to a great individual effort by Bakary Sako who powers down the left and ghosts his way through a couple of challenges before planting the ball in the net from 15 yards.

  76. League One

    Bradford 0-3 Bristol City

    Get that party started...Bristol City now lead 3-0 at Bradford and their promotion to the Championship should be confirmed in about 40 minutes.

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

  81. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth fans

    Some of the 4,000 travelling Bournemouth fans at Reading. A lot of noise coming from the away end so far.

  82. Post update

    League Two half-time

    The top-of-the-table clash at the JD Stadium has so far been something of a damp squib, with Shrewsbury and Bury failing to muster a shot on target.

    Southend, who can stop Shrewsbury from being promoted tonight with victory, lead against Newport thanks to Cian Bolger's goal.

    Bottom club Cheltenham's early lead against Cambridge has been pegged back by Ryan Bird's equaliser, while fellow strugglers Hartlepool are behind to Accrington thanks to a goal from Josh Windass - son of former Hull striker Dean.

  83. Post update

    What's happening in League Two? All the latest coming up...

  84. League One latest

    Bristol City's backroom staff are probably searching around Valley Parade for some bottles of champagne, after seeing their side go in at half-time 2-0 ahead against Bradford thanks to goals from James Tavernier and Bristol-born, Bristol-bred Joe Bryan.

    Second-placed Preston are 2-0 up against Gillingham, while Ben Gladwin's hat-trick has put Swindon 4-1 up against Rochdale. Chesterfield are currently 3-0 ahead against Colchester, currently four points adrift of safety.

    Notts County are a place above them, but are 1-0 behind at Barnsley, while fellow strugglers Crewe, Port Vale and Walsall all lead.

  85. As it stands...

    Bournemouth are two points clear at the top of the table on 83 points, with Middlesbrough up to second. Norwich, who are being held by Leeds, have dropped to third. Watford, who do not play until Wednesday, are fourth, with Derby and Ipswich fifth and sixth respectively.

  86. Post update

    Middlesbrough 2-0 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "Middlesbrough are not sitting on their lead by any means - they have hit the crossbar and had a really good shout for a penalty. They look as though they are waiting for Wolves to come onto them, because if the visitors attack I don't think they have the quality at the back to stop Boro."

  87. Post update

    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Still no goals but plenty of incident in the basement battle. Millwall are convinced they should have had a penalty after Lee Gregory goes down under pressure from Gaetan Bong. Millwall's Shaun Williams has been substituted after apparently injuring himself by kicking an advertising board.

  88. Post update

    Middlesbrough 2-0 Wolves

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    at Riverside Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "An early goal always settles you down, but Middlesbrough have kept up their tempo really well."

    So close for Brentford! Alan Judge hits the crossbar when clean through. Shouts for offside but the flag stayed down.
