  1. Goodnight

    That is that for our live coverage from the Championship, as well as the Football League, for 2015. Middlesbrough will start 2016 on top of the table.

    There were wins for Fulham's new boss Slavisa Jokanovic as well as Ipswich tonight, while Leeds, Derby, Cardiff and Nottingham Forest take a point.

    We'll next be back with you on New Year's Day when Wolves travel to Brighton and QPR host Hull.

    Thanks for your company tonight, have a great New Year and see you in 2016.

  2. How it stands

    So what do tonight's results do to the table?

    Derby miss the chance to jump over Middlesbrough at the top and remain second, while this is the top six in the Championship heading into 2016 - you can view the full table here.

    Championship table
  3. The results are in

    So 12 goals across our four Championship games tonight and this is how it finished:

    • Brighton 0-1 Ipswich
    • Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest
    • Fulham 4-1 Rotherham
    • Leeds 2-2 Derby
  4. FULL-TIME

    Fulham 4-1 Rotherham

    A fine display in Slavisa Jokanovic's first game as the newly-appointed Fulham head coach sees the Cottagers comfortably beat Rotherham thanks to a Cauley Woodrow double as well as goals from Alex Kacaniklic and Ross McCormack.

    An early Farrend Rawson strike levelled for Rotherham but they rarely threatened as Fulham took control with a dominant second-half performance.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Leeds 2-2 Derby

    No one is able to take three points tonight, and on the balance of the game it's probably a fair draw.

    Jeff Hendrick's dancing opener for Derby early on was cancelled out by Sol Bamba.

    Chris Wood headed in Sam Byram's excellent cross to put Leeds ahead but substitute Tom Ince levelled for Paul Clement's side.

  6. FULL-TIME

    Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Oh! What a miss! Forest sub Nelson Oliveira pounces on a rebound in the 95th minute but blasts over from six yards.

    So it's a point apiece in south Wales. For two clubs still with outside chances of forcing their way into the Championship play-offs in the latter part of the season, it's not the ideal result.

  7. INJURY TIME

    Leeds 2-2 Derby

    There are going to be another three minutes at Elland Road, can anyone find a winner?

  8. FULL-TIME

    Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    What a win for Mick McCarthy's side! That result means Ipswich stay sixth but are now four points clear of seventh in the Championship table.

    Meanwhile, Brighton have failed to keep pace with the top two yet again as they now go five games with a win and three without a goal.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Leeds 2-2 Derby

    Final change for Leeds.

    Sam Byram, who delivered that perfect cross for Chris Wood's goal, is replaced by Kalvin Phillips. 

    Into the last minute plus whatever is added on.

  10. Leeds 2-2 Derby

    A free-kick from Luke Murphy very nearly catches out Lee Grant at the near post and the Derby keeper can only spill it around the post for a corner.

    Sol Bamba is just unable to reach the ball as it is swung in from the right.

  11. Fulham 4-1 Rotherham

  12. Leeds 2-2 Derby

    Leeds counter-attack well and Lewis Cook wins a free-kick on the edge of the area from a late challenge from Stephen Warnock.

    Five minutes to go at Elland Road plus injury time.

  13. Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    Andrew Crofts comes close to finding a late equaliser for Brighton as he heads Rajiv van La Parra's cross but his effort goes wide of the mark.

    Can Brighton find a very late point?

  14. CLOSE!

    Leeds 2-2 Derby

    Derby pilling on the pressure at Elland Road.

    After Tom Ince's shot is blocked, Chris Martin feeds Jeff Hendrick but his shot is deflected just over the bar. A corner and more pressure for Leeds to deal with.

    A win for the Rams would send them top at the start of 2016.

  15. GREAT SAVE!

    Leeds 2-2 Derby

    Leeds have Marco Silvestri to thank for keeping them level.

    Bradley Johnson finds himself free at the back stick from a free-kick and heads towards goal but the Italian stopper is equal to it.

  16. Post update

    Into the final few minutes in our four featured games. Fulham are out of sight against Rotherham, but the other three matches are finely poised.

    How are the nerves?

    Mick McCarthy
  17. Fulham 4-1 Rotherham

    It's been a night to forget for Neil Redfearn's side but Grant Ward is intent on cushioning the blow. The Rotherham man finds some space in the box and tries his luck but he's beaten off the ball.

  18. GOAL (Ince)

    Leeds 2-2 Derby

    A really, really clever goal this from Derby.

    Bradley Johnson feeds Johnny Russell who in turn, first time, flicks it around the corner to find Tom Ince - the substitute takes a touch to get it out of his feet and then drills the ball low into the bottom corner.

    Game on at Elland Road!

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Leeds 2-1 Derby

    After the delight of scoring his first goal in five games, Leeds forward Chris Wood is forced off with what looks like a hamstring strain - Souleymane Doukara on for him.

    Tom Ince enters the action for Derby as he comes on for Andreas Weimann.

  20. Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Ben Osborn gets some space down the Forest right and puts in a low cross, which evades two onrushing players in red shirts.

    Big chance missed by the visitors.

  21. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    Agonisingly close to a response from Brighton!

    Bruno crosses into the advancing Bobby Zamora who fires goalwards but the ball cannons off the crossbar.

  22. GOAL (Wood)

    Leeds 2-1 Derby

    Just as Leeds looked to be lacking in energy, Sam Byram drops his shoulder and delivers a stunning cross from out wide on the right.

    Chris Wood watches it float over and expertly times his run to nod home from the centre of the box. 

    The New Zealand scored the winner in a 2-1 victory at Derby in August and has he secured three points for Leeds again with 20 minutes to go?

  23. Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Derby's Chris Martin gets his first sniff of goal but a poor touch forces him away from goal.

    His low cross is struck by Andreas Weimann but the Austrian striker has his effort blocked out for a corner.

  24. GOAL (McCormack)

    Fulham 4-1 Rotherham

    What a night it's been for Ross McCormack. The Scottish striker latches onto Dan Burn's header, calmly controls the ball in the Rotherham box and half-volleys home.

    New Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic must be pleased with this.

  25. Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Leeds, in their traditional all white kit, are pressing the 'nightshade purple' away strip of Derby high up the field and getting some joy from it at the moment.

    You can hear boss Steve Evans screaming out orders to his troops on the touchline to keep up that intensity.

  26. Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    As Rob Phillips and Kevin Ratcliffe have just pointed out on BBC Radio Wales, Cardiff have had an extra day's rest compared to Forest, who drew with Leeds on Sunday.

  27. Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    A double change for Brighton as we enter the final third. Bobby Zamora and James Wilson replace Tomer Hemed and Beram Kayal.

    Zamora makes an instant impact but it's not quite enough to level the scores as he plays Jamie Murphy through on goal but the Brighton forward is waved offside.

  28. SUBSTITUTION

    Leeds 1-1 Derby

    That is the end of Darren Bent's evening for Derby and to say he's been ineffectual is an understatement, but in fairness he's seen very little of the ball - Chris Martin replaces him. What can the Rams top scorer produce?

    Leeds also make a change as Lewis Cook comes on for Tom Adeyemi.

  29. Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Steve Evans

    A tester from Stuart Dallas is the response by Leeds but his 30-yard effort in straight down the throat of Lee Grant.

    Remember, Leeds had not won in six home games before Steve Evans took over, they've won three of five since.

    Derby right-back Cyrus Christie is the next person in the book as he's shown a yellow card for pulling back Dallas.

  30. Premier League latest

    Leicester 0-0 Manchester City

    Into the second half in Leicester and it's still goalless in the Premier League between the Foxes and Manchester City.

    Follow the closing stages here.

    Leicester v Man City
  31. GOAL (Kacaniklic)

    Fulham 3-1 Rotherham

    Well that's a sucker punch for Rotherham who did look like they were settling into this second half rather well. Ross McCormack, involved in the build-up to another Fulham goal, lays the ball to Cauley Woodrow who tees up Alex Kacaniklic to poke home from close range.

  32. Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Just over an hour gone and still level at Cardiff. Only just though, as Forest defender Jack Hobbs nearly puts through his own net.

    Cardiff v Nottingham Forest
  33. Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Derby striker Darren Bent takes an excellent touch from a long ball inside the area but runs into Liam Cooper.

    The Rams win a corner after that passage of play but Richard Keogh falls and Leeds can clear.

  34. Fulham 2-1 Rotherham

    A fine start for Rotherham as Tony Andreu plays the ball on to the onrushing Grant Ward whose shot is well saved by Andy Lonergan.

    Can the visitors find a response to Cauley Woodrow's first-half double?

  35. Leeds 1-1 Derby

  36. Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    Daryl Murphy

    Following Daryl Murphy's first-half opener, Ipswich come close to extending their lead after the break thanks to some fine play from Ryan Fraser who crosses in towards Jonathan Douglas but his effort is well saved by David Stockdale.

  37. Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Cardiff should probably be in front in this one. Joe Ralls strikes a free-kick in a presentable position straight into the wall, and Aron Gunnarsson then heads wide from Craig Noone's cross.

  38. Leeds 1-1 Derby

    More good Jeff Hendrick footwork for Derby but this time it is down the right wing.

    His cross is palmed away by Marco Silvestri and then former Leeds midfielder Bradley Johnson skies his effort after being unable to make a clean connection on the edge of the box.

  39. KICK-OFF

    Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Richard Clark blows his whistle and we're under way again at Elland Road.

  40. Delayed kick-off

    Leeds 1-1 Derby

    There is a delay at half-time at Elland Road because the referee Mark Heywood has pulled a hamstring. He is being replaced by fourth official Richard Clark, who will take charge of the second half.

    We're under way in our other three games.

  41. The world of football

    In between another bite of your turkey and stuffing sandwich, you may have missed one or two things around the world of football. Here's been some of the things that have broken today:

    Martin Ling has resigned as manager of League One side Swindon Town because of "health reasons", while League Two club Notts County have sacked their boss Ricardo Moniz.

    - Former Newcastle United goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek has died at the age of 47.

    - Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez has said there is "a campaign" against him and the club.

  42. The Cottage remembers

    HT: Fulham 2-1 Rotherham

    Jimmy Hill tributes

    Craven Cottage led an emotional tribute to Jimmy Hill prior to kick off tonight. Both sides observed a minute's applause for Hill, who made over 250 appearances for Fulham between 1952 and 1961.

  43. Missed Monday's action?

    Keith Hill

    Then fear not as Phil Shepka has rounded up five interesting things from the games yesterday for you to enjoy.

    It includes a York City player evacuated because of the floods, a referee forced off after colliding with a player and Bolton ending their 107-day wait for a win.

    You can read about all those stories, and more, here.

  45. HALF-TIME

    Fulham 2-1 Rotherham

    Slavisa Jokanovic

    Slavisa Jokanovic will be happy to see his side make their walk to the dressing rooms on top. The Fulham manager has had it all to see in his first 45 minutes in west London. Two Cauley Woodrow goals separate his Fulham team from Rotherham who levelled through Farrend Rawson's strike.

    Will there be more to come from these two struggling sides after the break?

  46. HALF-TIME

    Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Superb goalkeeping from Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri stops Andreas Weimann rounding him in injury time and keeps it all square.

    Jeff Hendrick's dancing feet opened the scoring for Derby, with Sol Bamba equalising after Lee Grant's fumble from a free-kick.

  47. HALF-TIME

    Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    Chris Hughton

    A funny old first half, with the hosts dominating much of the possession but Daryl Murphy pounced on Lewis Dunk's error to fire in a fierce opener from an acute angle, giving Ipswich the lead against the run of play.

    Albion boss Chris Hughton will have much to think about at half-time.

  48. HALF-TIME

    Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    All square at the break at the Cardiff City Stadium.

    Oliver Burke's superb opener for Forest was cancelled out by Aron Gunnarsson's deflected long-range shot.

  49. GOAL (Woodrow)

    Fulham 2-1 Rotherham

    Cauley Woodrow

    The hosts are back on top and right on the stroke of half time, Ross McCormack plays a superb cross right to the feet of Cauley Woodrow who does well to flick the ball past Lee Camp for his second of the night.

  50. Leeds 1-1 Derby

    Johnny Russell does well to win a corner for Derby as three minutes extra of injury time are announced at Elland Road.

    From that corner, the Rams winger has a curling effort with his right foot but it drifts wide.

  51. Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    Brighton aren't taking that Daryl Murphy opener lying down. The hosts' namesake striker, Jamie Murphy, is played through on goal but his effort is well saved by Ipswich keeper Dean Gerken.

  52. GOAL (Bamba)

    Leeds 1-1 Derby

    After goalscorer Jeff Hendrick become the first Derby player to recieve a yellow card, Leeds cause havoc from the free-kick.

    Lee Grant only gets a feint touch on the stood-up set-piece, he then saves from Sam Byram's effort at the edge of the area and the ball kindly falls to captain Sol Bamba to drill home from close range after Stuart Dallas' cross.

    The hosts score with their first shot on target.

  53. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    Leeds' Sam Byram twists and turns to find space and he digs out a cross which Tom Adeyemi meets but his glancing header is a few metres wide.

  54. Fulham 1-1 Rotherham

    An entertaining affair at Craven Cottage. Goalscorer Cauley Woodrow finds Alex Kacaniklic who plays the ball back into the Fulham man but his follow-up effort goes just wide of the mark.

  55. Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Aron Gunnarsson

    Cardiff shading things in south Wales, but they're still level with 10 minutes of the first half remaining.

    Quote Message: It's not been bad at all. Cardiff have been very bright - they just need to get Craig Noone on the ball more. from Kevin Ratcliffe Former Wales and Everton captain on BBC Radio Wales
    Kevin RatcliffeFormer Wales and Everton captain on BBC Radio Wales
  56. SUBSTITUTION

    Leeds 0-1 Derby

    The visitors are forced into a change as Jason Shackell hobbles off after landing awkwardly during an aerial challenge with Sol Bamba - former Stoke defender Ryan Shotton is on for him.

  57. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    More action from the referee's pocket than chances right now as Leeds' Luke Murphy is booked for his mistimed sliding challenge.

    Still Jeff Hendrick's first goal of the season the difference between the two sides.

  58. GOAL (Murphy)

    Brighton 0-1 Ipswich

    And just like that, Ipswich take the lead completely against the run of play. Daryl Murphy takes advantage of a defensive error and advances into the Brighton box to fire home from an acute angle.

  59. Brighton 0-0 Ipswich

    Brighton have turned up the pressure, now. The hosts see their celebrations shortlived as Tomer Hemed's close-range tap-in is flagged offside following a terrific save from Dean Gerken.

  60. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    Leeds wideman Sam Byram is the first player to receive a yellow card for a foul on Andreas Weimann, shortly followed by Liam Bridcutt after he brought down Jacob Butterfield.

    There are also reports that there's some less than complimentary chanting from the Elland Road crowd being directed at the television company screening tonight's game...

  61. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    A positive run from Stuart Dallas sees the Leeds winger win a corner for his side.

    It's whipped in to the edge of the six-yard box but Sol Bamba is beaten to the ball by two Derby defenders.

  62. Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    Cardiff almost go in front with an excellent counter-attack, which ends with Tony Watt forcing an excellent low save. From close range, the man on loan from Charlton probably should have scored.

  63. GOAL (Rawson)

    Fulham 1-1 Rotherham

    You can't say it hasn't been coming. Pinned into their box, Fulham fail to clear the ball and Farrend Rawson is on hand to thunder the ball home off the crossbar to get Rotherham back into the game.

  64. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    Leeds build their best attack of the game pressing high up the pitch.

    Liam Bridcutt lays in Sam Byram down the right wing and he stabs up a cross to the back post, but Tom Adeyemi can only direct his powerful header a couple of metres over the bar. Better though from the Whites.

  65. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    Leeds now with some of the ball but all of it is being played in front of the Derby defence who look very comfortable - Chris Wood has barely had a kick up top.

    Injured Rams midfielder Will Hughes enjoyed Jeff Hendrick's opener from afar.

  66. Fulham 1-0 Rotherham

    Rotherham haven't sat back after going a goal down. Tony Andreu catches Fulham out straight from a corner but fortunately for the hosts, Ryan Fredericks is on hand to nod his swinging effort away.

    Moments later, Lee Frecklington powers a shot goalbound but Fulham keeper Andy Lonergan pushes the ball away.

  67. Leeds 0-1 Derby

    Derby in complete control the the moment as Leeds struggle to get a foot in.

    Paul Clement's side have won all 13 of the league games they have taken the lead in so far this season.

  68. Brighton 0-0 Ipswich

    Brighton v Ipswich

    It's livened up a bit on the south coast! Beram Kayal almsot breaks the deadlock following a tame opening period as the Brighton man fires a low shot that is just wide of Dean Gerken's post. At the other end, Kevin Bru shows a bit of strength and hits the crossbar with a dipping shot.

  69. GOAL (Gunnarsson)

    Cardiff 1-1 Nottingham Forest

    With a bit of good fortune, Cardiff are level through midfielder Aron Gunnarsson.

    The midfielder takes a pot-shot from 25 yards and it deflects in off a Forest player past goalkeeper Dorus de Vries.

  70. GOAL (Hendrick)

    Leeds 0-1 Derby

    First meaningful attack from Derby and it's rewarded with the opening goal.

    Jeff Hendrick waltzes through a couple of challenges, putting Sol Bamba on the floor, and then calmly finishes.

    The Rams heading to the top of the Championship table.

  71. Get Involved

    #bbcfootball

  72. GOAL (Burke)

    Cardiff 0-1 Nottingham Forest

    Forest lead with a superb finish from Oliver Burke.

    The teenager curls past David Marshall with the outside of his boot for his first senior goal.

  73. Leeds 0-0 Derby

    Paul Clement

    Derby not really getting anywhere near the Leeds box despite having more of the ball in the opening exchanges.

    Darren Bent then controls the ball on the edge of the area and passes wide and the former England striker will be looking to impress in just his third league start of the season.

  74. GOAL (Woodrow)

    Fulham 1-0 Rotherham

    Cauley Woodrow

    The Slavisa Jokanovic era gets off to the perfect start as Fulham take the lead and what an stylish opening goal it is! Cauley Woodrow picks the ball up and coolly beats the Rotherham back line before rounding Lee Camp to slot the ball home.

  75. Brighton 0-0 Ipswich

    Ipswich have seen the better of the play in the opening five minutes. Daryl Murphy plays the ball to Ryan Fraser who has defender Bruno well beaten but Lewis Dunk is on hand to spare Brighton's blushes.

  76. Cardiff 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Big chance missed for the hosts as Anthony Pilkington heads wide for Cardiff after an excellent cross from the recalled Craig Noone.

    Quote Message: What a lovely bit of skill from Craig Noone to set it up. Pilkington's definitely onside and it's a good header - he's done the right thing going across the goalkeeper. from Kevin Ratcliffe Former Wales and Everton captain on BBC Radio Wales
    Kevin RatcliffeFormer Wales and Everton captain on BBC Radio Wales
  77. Leeds 0-0 Derby

    On loan Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt is a busy figure already in the centre of the park for Leeds.

    Sam Byram, who has three goals in his last three games, gets a long shot horribly wrong for the hosts.

  78. Leeds 0-0 Derby

    A good ball from Scott Wootton is just over the head of Chris Wood as the Leeds striker looks to attack it. From the resultant corner, Derby head away.

  79. Leeds 0-0 Derby

    Derby enjoying the majority of possession in the opening minutes.

    The Rams are in their changed strip tonight, which looks black on the eye, but is described as "nightshade purple" on their website.

  80. KICK-OFF

    Leeds 0-0 Derby

    We're under way at Elland Road as Derby begin the game.

    The other three matches are also off and running.

  81. In the tunnel

    Leeds v Derby (19:45 GMT)

    Final preparations have been done and all the teams are beginning to come out ahead of kick-off in a couple of minutes.

  82. Fulham's defensive woe

    Fulham v Rotherham (19:45 GMT)

    Fulham's defensive record this season

    Fulham have an unenviable defensive record so far this season. Not only have they let in the second-highest amount of goals this campaign, the Cottagers have the worst home defensive in the Championship too, conceding an average of 1.82 goals with home advantage.

    Fortunately for Slavisa Jokanovic's side, Rotherham haven't faired too well on their travels of late. Neil Redfearn's men have scored just twice in their last six away games and won just once, against Leeds in November.

  83. Free beer!

    Leicester City v Manchester City (19:45 GMT)

    Unfortunately this is not a BBC offer, but as John Bennett reports, it's a gesture from the Leicester City owners. I'm sure an offer everyone could get on board with from their club...

  84. Leeds v Sky TV

    Leeds v Derby (19:45 GMT)

    Quote Message: The club’s got a massive point. They can’t keep doing this to Leeds United and the fans. It’s not fair. It’s not one game, it’s a catalogue of games all the way through the season, starting with Doncaster at the beginning of the season on a Thursday night. The fans have been asking for a little bit of fairness from the Football League and Sky. from Noel Whelan Former Leeds striker on BBC Radio Leeds

  85. What can Fulham fans expect?

    Fulham v Rotherham (19:45 GMT)

    Slavisa Jokanovic's Championship record

    Slavisa Jokanovic leads Fulham for the first time since his appointment on Sunday as they face Rotherham, but what is the former Watford manager's record in the Championship?The 47-year-old led the Hornets to second place in the Championship and promotion to the Premier League with an impressive winning run towards the end of last season.

    Fulham fans will be hoping he can bring more of the same to Craven Cottage.

    The Championship is, of course, not the only show in town tonight. In the Premier League, Leicester City can return to the top of the table if they beat fourth-placed Manchester City at the King Power Stadium.

  90. Leeds v Sky TV

    Leeds v Derby (19:45 GMT)

    Back to Leeds' stance against Sky TV earlier today, here's what head coach Steve Evans had to say to BBC Radio 5 live earlier:

    Quote Message: You have to leave the decisions to the powers that be. I think the issues lie more on the financial side. I was very pleased to hear when I got to the ground that the game was going ahead on the television. I'm just still a little bit disappointed that we're facing a team who's very fresh and doing nothing other than playing Saturday and Tuesday, whereas we're doing Sunday night and Tuesday night. The experts tell me there's about a 35% dip in performances on day two after a game. I have to motivate and get round my players to make sure that's not the case."
  91. Team news

    Brighton v Ipswich (19:45 GMT)

    Brighton make three changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Brentford on Boxing Day as Connor Goldson, Andrew Crofts and Jamie Murphy start.

    Ipswich make two changes as Ryan Fraser and Kevin Bru come in for Brett Pitman and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

    Brighton & Hove Albion: Stockdale, Bruno, Goldson, Dunk, Calderon, Crofts, Stephens, Kayal, van La Parra, Hemed, Murphy.

    Ipswich Town: Gerken, Chambers, Smith, Berra, Knudsen, Skuse, Bru, Douglas, Fraser, Sears, Murphy.

  95. Leeds v Sky TV

    Leeds v Derby (19:45 GMT)

    Sky TV camera

    It has been an interesting 24 hours at Elland Road to say the least, with Leeds only confirming just before 15:00 GMT today they would allow Sky TV to broadcast their game against Derby, having initially barred cameras from entering.

    They were protesting at the number of Leeds fixtures changed for television, with owner Massimo Cellino claiming it reduces attendances.

    It is the ninth time this season the Whites have had a league game been picked for TV and in a statement on their website they said they were unhappy with the "entirely disproportionate number of times Sky have selected the club for live transmission." 

    Leeds would have been charged with misconduct by the Football League if they had carried out the ban.
