  1. The shape of things to come?

    Jack Colback celebrates with Joao Carvalho

    We're not even a day into 2019 and the EFL has already delivered signs that it's going to be another remarkable year for the 72 member clubs.

    Take the Championship for instance. It's as open as a 24-hour garage. It's exciting - we had 43 goals in the 12 games alone today.

    We saw Leeds edged by Forest in a thriller, we saw resurgent Hull hit Bolton for six, Sheffield United thumping Wigan, Villa and QPR locked in a thrilling draw.

    We're going to need another holiday to get over it all. Alas, many of us will be back at work - so just take it easy eh?

    We'll be back here on BBC Sport with the FA Cup third round this weekend, and don't forget we'll definitely be back when the EFL reconvenes with Leeds versus Derby - a proper rivalry - on 11 January. Until then. Take care.

  2. Time for change at Stoke?

    FT: Stoke 0-2 Bristol City

    Forest boss Aitor Karanka might have saved his job with victory over Leeds but it seems some Stoke fans are losing patience with manager Gary Rowett...

    The Potters are 14th in the Championship after losing at home to Bristol City today.

  6. Bottom three cut off

    Bolton, Reading and Ipswich in trouble

    And down the bottom it's not looking great for Ipswich.

    The Tractor Boys are now 10 points from safety after their 3-2 defeat at home by Millwall, who are themselves now six points clear of danger after their third consecutive win.

    Reading went down 4-1 at home against Swansea and Bolton drop into the relegation zone after getting battered 6-0 at Hull.

    Rotherham move out of the bottom three thanks to their victory over Preston.

  7. Trouble at the top?

    Leeds have lead cut at Championship summit

    Here's what today's results have done to the top of the Championship table.

    It hasn't been the best day for the top six, with leaders Leeds losing at Nottingham Forest after going down to 10 men.

    That is back-to-back defeats for Marcelo Bielsa's men.

    Norwich could only draw at Brentford, so Sheffield United are the big winners of the day, moving within touching distance of the automatic promotion places after winning at Wigan.

  10. Post update

    And breathe.

    If you're just joining us, here's a taste of what you've missed...

  11. FULL-TIME: Aston Villa 2-2 QPR

    The final whistle eventually goes after 14 minutes of injury time.

    QPR make it five unbeaten, while Villa have lost just one of their past 11.

    However, Dean Smith's side have only won one in six - is their play-off challenge fading?

  12. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-2 QPR

    Still playing at Villa Park.

    Rangers keeper Joe Lumley has saved from John McGinn in injury time, and Yannick Bolasie has also headed over for Villa.

    Time is almost up.

  13. FULL-TIME: Brentford 1-1 Norwich

    Daniel Farke

    No late winner for Norwich today, but they do club Leeds' lead at the top of the table to two points.

    Brentford stretch their unbeaten run to four games.

  14. FULL-TIME: Sheff Wed 1-1 Birmingham

    Honours shared at Hillborough - Che Adams cancelling out Steven Fletcher's first-half opener.

    Decent game, decent result for both sides.

  15. FULL-TIME: Nott'm Forest 4-2 Leeds

    Exhale. What a game. But it's over.

    Six goals, a sending-off, incident, drama, excitement, saves. It was a corker of a game to light up the new year and Forest come out on top against Leeds - who lose back-to-back league games for the first time this season.

    It's a big boost for Forest boss Aitor Karanka, who has put up with whispers of his departure throughout the festive period.

  16. FULL-TIME: Rotherham 2-1 Preston NE

    Big win for the Millers, who are grateful to saves by Marek Rodak, goals from Michael Smith and Will Vaulks for victory against Preston, whose reply came from Lukas Nmecha.

    Millers climb the table.

  17. FULL-TIME: Derby 1-1 Middlesbrough

    It finishes as a stalemate at Pride Park.

    Harry Wilson's early goal was cancelled out by Jordan Hugill.

    Both sides remain in the play-offs but fail to cut the gap to the automatic promotion places.

    Frank Lampard
  18. FULL-TIME: Ipswich 2-3 Millwall

    Millwall hang on for their first away win of the season.

    That's three wins in a row for the Lions, who are climbing away from danger.

    Ipswich could be 10 points from safety by the end of the day.

  19. FULL-TIME: Blackburn 2-1 West Brom

    Another of the Championship's high-fliers have slumped to defeat in 2019, it's West Brom's turn at the hands of an impressive Blackburn side.

    Baggies drop to fourth, Rovers are 15th but not for long if they play like that.

  20. Post update

    Brentford 1-1 Norwich

    Almost a winner for Norwich.

    Dennis Srbeny fires wide of the goal, dragging his low shot narrowly off target.

    Bees goalie Daniel Bentley was beaten.
