  1. Goodbye

    I'm sure we'll hear more about that Peter Odemwingie elbow as the weekend unfolds, but I'm afraid that's all we've got time for this evening.

    The next EFL live text is on Monday when Huddersfield take on Wigan in the Championship (19:45 GMT).

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Post-match reaction: Complacency crept in - Monk

    FT: Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    Leeds manager Garry Monk told Sky Sports:

    "We deserved the three points overall, but we can't be happy with the way that game ended.

    "Complacency crept in. We started so well, we were in control, I warned the players at half-time that taking their foot off the gas was the only thing that would cause us trouble and they did just that.

    "I've just told the players that it was not acceptable. That needless pressure at the end was caused by ourselves.

    "We need to address that and make sure it doesn't happen again."

  3. Post-match reaction: Chris Hughton praises team's character

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Fulham

    Glen Murray

    Brighton came from behind to beat Fulham and moved within two points of Newcastle at the top of the Championship.

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton:

    "It was a really big win for us, particularly as it was not one of our better performances. They were better than us in the first half because we gave them too much room and we were pleased when half-time came. 

    "But it shows the character of the team that, despite not being at our best, we were able to fight our way back and that is what you need when you are up there challenging. 

    "It was an important win because it was unexpected for Newcastle to lose, and one thing I still feel is that the team closest to Newcastle in the table at the end of the season will have a really good chance of going up."

  4. I was unlucky - Odemwingie

    FT: Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    The television pictures of Peter Odemwingie's first-half elbow on Liam Cooper looked horrific, but the Rotherham striker took to Twitter soon after to send his apologies.

    Make of it what you will, but the replays don't do him any favours I'm afraid...

  5. Post update

    FT: Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    Chris Wood gave Leeds an early advantage, before Peter Odemwingie saw red for a rash elbow just before the half-hour.

    Souleymane Doukara then made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time.

    Rotherham threw everything at the visitors after the break and Richard Wood's header gave them a lifeline late on, but Garry Monk's men held on.

    Leeds are up to fifth. The Millers are still rock bottom.

  6. FULL-TIME

    FT: Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    Leeds

    Despite giving it an unbelievable go in the second half, it's yet another defeat for 10-man Rotherham - their 13th of the season.

  7. Post update

    Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    It's all Rotherham now. We're into two minutes of four added on.

    I'm going to need a lie down after this.

  8. Post update

    Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    OH MY GOODNESS - how has that not gone in for Rotherham?!

    The ball drops in the box from a corner, about eight Millers men have shots at goal but Leeds bodies are flying all over the place and the ball is eventually sliced over from about two yards by Stephen Kelly.

    Absolute madness.

  9. GOAL (Wood)

    Rotherham 1-2 Leeds

    Is this a lifeline for 10-man Rotherham?!

    Skipper Richard Wood finds some room in the box and loops a header into the corner.

    Rob Green got a hand on it but couldn't keep it out.

    Surely they can't get anything from this game?

  10. Post update

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    Just as I said the game was petering out, Rotherham substitute Anthony Forde weaves his way into the box but his shot his blocked.

    Will Vaulks latches onto the rebound and smashes a shot towards goal but Luke Ayling gets in the way and it goes over for a corner.

  11. Post update

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    The game is fizzling out now. 

    If Leeds hold on to victory they'll be up to fifth in the Championship.

    Rotherham fans look away now - you'll still be 11 points from safety I'm afraid.

  12. Post update

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    Rotherham's Darnell Fisher is lucky to get away without a booking there.

    The youngster steps on Hadi Sacko's foot and the Leeds winger goes down screaming in pain.

    He's back up on his feet shortly after - no harm done it seems.

  13. Post-match reaction: Steve McClaren praises big win

    FT: Derby 1-0 Norwich

    Bradley Johnson

    Derby manager Steve McClaren said:

    "It's a big win for us; a big step forward. We had to dig in at times, but that's a good team we've kept a clean sheet against.

    "We controlled the game when we had the ball or didn't have the ball and that's important if you want to be a top team.

    "We might lose next week, but I know this team is capable of winning big games and today went a long way to showing me this team has got something."

  14. Close!

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    And it's a super effort from Danny Ward which curls just wide.

    Unfortunately it still means Rotherham have not had a shot on target all evening.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    Rotherham make their third and final substitution - Anthony Forde comes on for Joe Newell.

    Seconds later Kalvin Phillips gives away a silly foul and Rotherham have a free-kick from 25 yards...

  16. Post update

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    What's going on there?! Leeds goalkeeper Robert Green slides to claim the ball near to the touchline and almost handles the ball outside his area.

    However, it looks okay from the former England shotstopper.

  17. Post-match reaction: Alex Neil not a quitter

    FT: Derby 1-0 Norwich

    Alex Neil

    Bradley Johnson condemned his former club Norwich to a fifth successive loss as Derby sealed a fourth straight win.

    Norwich boss Alex Neil: 

    "I've just seen the owner (Delia Smith) and she literally said to me, 'Keep going, we keep fighting'.

    "She and Jez Moxey (chief executive) come down regularly after games and they know how hard I'm trying and how hard the players are trying.

    "All you can do is stick together and keep together and we'll get through it. The one thing I have never been is someone who is going to give up. I think you only ever fail when you stop trying."

    Read the match report here.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    The lively Kemar Roofe is replaced by Marcus Antonsson for Leeds.

    That's now 17 Championship games without a goal for the former Oxford man since his move to Elland Road in the summer. 

    However, he did set up Souleymane Doukara for Leeds' second goal.

  19. Post-match reaction: Rafael Benitez on team changes

    FT: Newcastle 0-1 Blackburn

    Rafael Benitez

    Newcastle's defeat came after Rafael Benitez made six changes from the side that had won at Leeds last weekend.

    Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez:

    "I didn't like our reaction when we were losing, and we have to do better. I didn't like the chances we didn't take, and I didn't like my decisions. But we cannot change things. 

    "I knew that when you lose a game and you change your players, everyone blames the manager. I knew that. But at the same time, we have to show more character and more personality.

    "We didn't control the game the way we have been doing it."

  20. Post update

    Rotherham 0-2 Leeds

    Just over 20 minutes left for Rotherham to try and rescue something from the game.

    But it's so, so difficult for Kenny Jackett's 10 men. Danny Ward is cutting a bit of a lone figure up front - his original strike partner Peter Odemwingie is back in the changing room for that horrible elbow in the first half.
