  1. Thanks for your company

    So, after a mighty eight hours of live coverage, today's EFL action draws to a close.

    You can find all of today's Championship reports here.

    In the EFL on Good Friday, there's been late goals, great saves, relegations, pigs, controversy and a delightful worldwide, online audience.

    Thanks for joining us. Go have a good weekend now. Good night.

  2. As it stands

    FT: Burton 1-2 Ipswich


    And here is the bottom six. It is mighty close down there.

    Bristol City and Blackburn were the big winners today.

  3. As it stands

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds


    Here is how the top six looks then, after that result at St James' Park.

  4. Monk hails Leeds 'spirit'

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Leeds boss Garry Monk tells Sky Sports:

    "We started the game very well. But then they started to bring it more towards out goal more.

    "We conceded a lot of set-pieces, but defended them brilliantly.

    "Spirit and competitiveness is a big strength of ours and you saw that clearly today. It is the spirit of the group. For that effort, they deserve it."

  5. Post update

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Having seen a replay though, I'm sure Newcastle will be asking themselves: Who was marking Chris Wood??!

    The league's most potent finisher was completely on his own in space in the area.

  6. Post update

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Newcastle won't believe they didn't win tonight. They had 22 shots to Leeds' four.

    But Rob Green made at least three fine saves and the Leeds defence put their bodies on the line to keep themselves in the game at times.


    Burton 1-2 Ipswich

    Away from that late drama at St James' Park, Ipswich held on to beat Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

    It was a frantic finish, with Burton hitting the bar late on, but Mick McCarthy's side all-but secure survival by moving nine points clear of the drop.

    Burton are 21st and in big trouble, just two points above Blackburn.

  8. Leeds up a place

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    That point lifts Leeds up to fourth, above Reading on goal difference. The Royals play tomorrow.

    Newcastle, in second, are eight points above third-placed Huddersfield, who have a game in hand. But it was so, so nearly a 10-point gap for the Magpies.

    That draw also leaves Brighton four points clear the at top. The title is in the Seagulls' hands.

  9. 'We fight until the end'

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Leeds goal scorer Chris Wood tells Sky Sports:

    "Thankfully I tapped it away. It is always a tough place to come, so we are delighted.

    "[Rob] Green was fantastic today. The back four have been magnificent all season.

    "We fight until the end and it shows what we are about."

  10. Wood's 28th of the season

    FT: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    He only needed one chance. Chris Wood's incredible season continues.

    And that could prove to be the goal that secures Leeds a play-off place, come the next few weeks.


    Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Leeds snatch a point!

  12. Post update

    Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Newcastle look to hit back but Mo Diame runs the ball out of play and that might be that.

  13. Wood rescues a point

    Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Leeds pile everyone forward and they have an equaliser! You just couldn't see that coming!

    But Chris Wood only needs one chance! He superbly tucks in from Kemar Roofe's dangerous, near-post cross.

    Newcastle are kicking themselves. Leeds are delirious!

  14. GOAL: Newcastle 1-1 Leeds

    Chris Wood

    Late drama!

  15. YELLOW CARDS (Newcastle)

    Newcastle 1-0 Leeds

    Jonjo Shelvey is booked, seemingly for time wasting.

    Then, as Leeds look to break, Jack Colback is booked for a cynical foul to halt the attack.

  16. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Leeds

    Newcastle have the ball in the corner and are keeping it there, frustrating Leeds.

  17. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Leeds

    Leeds haven't really built up any momentum or pressure, to suggest a late equaliser here. Not yet, anyway.

    And time is quickly running out.

  18. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Leeds

    Five minutes of added time have been indicated at St James' Park.

  19. GOAL - Burton 1-2 Ipswich

    Lucas Akins

    Perhaps this one isn't all over?

    Lucas Akins pulls a goal back for Burton from the penalty spot after Luke Varney was fouled.

  20. SUBSTITUTION (Newcastle)

    Newcastle 1-0 Leeds

    Rob Green makes another good save, this time to get to DeAndre Yedlin's cross. Then the hosts make another change, as Mo Diame comes on for Ayoze Perez.
