    That just about ends a busy day of EFL football.

    Middlesbrough started the day top of the Championship, and they ended it there, thanks to defeats for Leeds, West Brom and Sheffield United.

    Oh, and Macclesfield picked up their first win of the season in League Two - and their first victory in league football in 37 games.

    There is a full fixture-list spread over Tuesday and Wednesday, so we'll be back then.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    FT: Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    At the bottom, it's miserable reading for Ipswich after their home defeat by QPR...

  3. 'My family won't be happy'

    FT: Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Derby striker Jack Marriott tells Sky Sports:

    "It's been difficult getting up to speed [after signing from Peterborough late in the summer] but I feel like I've started well.

    "Lots of my family are Sheffield United fans, they're in Cornwall watching the game so I don't think they'll be happy with me but I've got to do my job haven't I!"

    Derby midfielder Mason Mount tells Sky Sports:

    "It was very tough, we knew it would be as they're playing well but we stuck with it and got that late winner.

    "It was unbelievable being away with the England squad, I learned a lot and enjoyed but that's finished now and my focus is on Derby.

    "We've started this week off well but we have to focus and keep improving."

  4. Boro top of the pile

    FT: Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    So, Middlesbrough end the weekend top of the Championship after Leeds, West Brom and now Sheffield United all lost...

    Championship top six
  5. FULL-TIME

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Derby deservedly beat Sheffield United thanks to a second-half goal from Jack Marriott.

    Chris Basham had equalised for the Blades before the break after Craig Bryson's strike after just 19 seconds.

    It means Sheffield United don't go back to the top, instead they stay second behind Middlesbrough.

    Victory for Frank Lampard and his Derby side means they're up to fifth.

  6. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff United

    Derby win another free kick and that SHOULD be it.

  7. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Sheffield United may get one last chance, they're throwing men forward

  8. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Successive throw-ins right in the corner for Derby and Sheffield United are getting pretty frustrated.

  9. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Derby have it where they want it, deep in the Blades half.

    And a free-kick is even better, as they tick down the clock.

  10. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    David McGoldrick runs in behind but Derby captain Richard Keogh snuffs out the threat.

  11. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Long spell of possession for Sheffield United as they prepare for one last push.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    What we have we hold.

    Jack Marriott's goal separates the teams at the moment, and the Derby striker is replaced by experienced centre-back Curtis Davies.

  13. CLOSE!

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Somehow, Sheffield United haven't equalised.

    Scott Carson drops the ball under no pressure at a corner and Jack O'Connell heads the ball goalwards.

    Mason Mount is in the right place to hack it off the line.

  14. Post update

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Derby haven't conceded in the final 15 minutes of a Championship game this season.

    Just saying...

  15. Fan's frustration is warranted - Hurst

    Reaction: Ipswich 0-2 QPR

    QPR celebrate at Ipswich

    After being comfortably beaten at home 2-0 by QPR to go bottom of the table, under-pressure Ipswich boss Paul Hurst told BBC Radio Suffolk:

    "We were second best. From start to finish, we didn't win enough second balls.

    "I've not been involved in a run of games where there have been so many soft goals given away. As a manager or a player, I honestly can't remember a season like it.

    "You can see the fans are desperate for things to get better. I can't say the frustration is not warranted.

    "We have to be realistic. That [a relegation battle] is what we're in at the moment. We have to face up to the situation we're in. We're not the best team in the league - that is blatantly obvious. So we have to find ways to make it more difficult [for opponents]."

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Northern Ireland striker Conor Washington has been sent on to try and score his first Sheffield United goal and get them a point.

    Defender Chris Basham - scorer of their goal tonight - goes off.

  17. GOAL: Derby 2-1 Sheff Utd

    Jack Marriott

    WHAT A FINISH!

    Jack Marriott has been getting closer and closer this evening, this chance was the hardest of the lot.

    The Derby striker runs across the near post to flick in a Craig Forsyth cross, with the ball nestling in the far bottom corner.

    Well deserved.

  18. CLOSE!

    Derby 1-1 Sheff Utd

    Jack Marriott has had plenty of efforts tonight, this time the Derby striker glances a header wide at the near post.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 1-1 Sheff Utd

    Derby forward Martyn Waghorn is replaced by Florian Jozefzoon.

    Both sides have now made two subs.

  20. YELLOW CARD

    Derby 1-1 Sheff Utd

    The first player in the book is Sheffield United goalscorer Chris Basham.

    Derby's Tom Lawrence knocks the ball past him down the left wing, but that was as far as Basham was letting him get.
