    Enjoy the rest of your weekend and, wherever your team is in the league, have a great Christmas.

  2. A little earlier...

    Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 Wolves

    Ross Wallace and Gary Hooper

    Sheffield Wednesday came from 1-0 down to thrash Wolves 4-1 at Hillsborough.

    Benik Afobe's penalty put the visitors ahead, but Fernando Forestieri scored twice - the first a penalty - to give the Owls a 2-1 lead.

    And further goals in the second half from Daniel Pudil and Gary Hooper gave Wednesday a comfortable home victory that takes them to within a point of the top six.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Leeds 1-0 Preston

    Steve Evans

    That's three wins in four games for Steve Evans's men.

    Preston were reduced to 10 men after 30 minutes when goalkeeper Jordan Pickford handled outside the area.

    His replacement, 17-year-old Matt Hudson, was beaten in the first minute of the second half when Alan Browne headed into his own net.

    The visitors pushed on in search of an equaliser but Marco Silvestri made some key saves in the home goal.

    Leeds move up to 13th in the table.

  4. FULL-TIME

    Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Reading's Danny Williams

    Danny William's superb first-half strike gives Brian McDermott victory on his return as Reading manager.

    The Royals hang on for what is their first win against Blackburn in almost three decades. Bangaly-Fode Koita calling Jonathan Bond into action deep into injury time to ensure maximum point for the hosts, ending a miserable four-game losing run.

    The defeat also ended Blackburn's sequence of eight-matches unbeaten.

    Reading move up to 11th in the table, while Rovers slip to 14th.

  5. Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Four minutes of stoppage time at the Madejski Stadium. Surely going to be a nervy wait for Reading.

  6. Leeds 1-0 Preston

    We're into added time and Leeds are just looking to run the clock down now.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Paul Lambert makes the last of his changes for Blackburn and it is an attacking one with Craig Conway making way for Chris Brown.

    That will be three up front for Rovers as they try to avoid their first defeat in nine games - and their first loss since Lambert became manager.

  8. Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Will Brian McDermott be all smiles at the end of this one?

    Reading continue to hold their slender lead against Blackburn.

    The Royals are 10 minutes away from beating Rovers in the league for the first time in almost three decades and from giving McDermott the perfect start to his second spell in charge.

  9. Leeds 1-0 Preston

    Preston are still pushing at Elland Road.

    We're heading into the last 10 minutes and the 10 men from Deepdale have still got a chance of salvaging something here.

  10. Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Reading pushing hard for a second. Standing in their way is Jason Steele, who keeps Nick Blackman out at his near post.

    There is also a lengthy stoppage as Adam Henley gets some treatment.

  11. Leeds 1-0 Preston

    Full commentary of both of our remaining games can be found on BBC local radio.

  12. Leeds 1-0 Preston

    Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri makes a smart save from former United midfielder Neil Kilkenny.

    The Italian keeper then makes himself big to deny Tom Clarke from the resultant corner.

    The visitors are still in this.

  13. GREAT SAVE!

    Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Ola John looks to make an immediate impact down the left side.

    Jason Steele makes a double save to keep the on-loan Benfica winger out. The Dutch international has certainly added spark to the Royals' attack.

  14. Real Madrid go goal crazy

    Gareth Bale

    In Spain, Real Madrid are 8-2 up against Rayo Vallecano - Gareth Bale has scored four times.

    Can they get to double figures? Follow live text commentary here.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Brian McDermott goes to his bench for a second time. Ola John replaces Gareth McCleary out wide for Reading.

    Blackburn with a double substitution, Ben Marshall makes way for Tom Lawrence and Lee Williamson takes Danny Guthrie's place.

  16. Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Adam Williams

    BBC Sport at Madejski Stadium

    Both sides threatening to get the next goal in this one and arguably Blackburn should have had it.

    Jordan Rhodes and Craig Conway have both been unable to direct efforts on target while Garath McCleary was denied at the other end by a smart save from Jason Steele.

    Certainly not a done deal yet.

  17. Leeds 1-0 Preston

    Leeds are still totally in control against 10-man Preston but they still only have Alan Browne's own goal at the start of the second half to show for their efforts.

    Striker Souleymane Doukara is on for midfielder Luke Murphy as the hosts go in search of a second goal that you'd have to think would wrap up the win.

  18. Manager reaction

    FT: Sheff Weds 4-1 Wolves

  19. Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Lucas Piazon has been a bright addition for Reading after the break. 

    He finds Hal Robson-Kanu with a neat back-heel pass, but the curled effort doesn't cause Jason Steele any great drama in goal.

  20. Reading 1-0 Blackburn

    Adam Williams

    BBC Sport at Madejski Stadium

    At the risk of a massive name-drop, thought I'd mention I stood behind a certain Martin Keown in the queue for a half-time cup of tea.

    Fresh from his punditry on last night's Match Of The Day, Martin is here just in case son Niall, named on the Reading bench today, gets to make a league debut for the Royals.
