  1. Good night


    Happy nights for a few north west folk, as Paul Scholes' new era at Oldham kicked off in thumping fashion and Bolton swiped some precious points at Birmingham. Not to mention the west country too where Bristol City popped up with a late winner against QPR. Nine on the spin.

    Tougher night for those in the midlands, especially those of a Nottingham Forest persuasion who were denied the sweet taste of victory by West Brom's leveller.

    Plenty to sleep on across the EFL, put it that way.

    The good news is we're back again tomorrow for even more EFL action. Why not join us?

    Until then. Good night.

  2. Good night for the top two...



    They're not in action until tomorrow but Norwich and Leeds will be pleased with West Brom failing to beat Nottingham Forest.

    The continuation of Bristol City's miraculous run lifts them to fifth - just a point behind the Baggies, who salvaged a dramatic late draw at home to Forest.

    Martin O'Neill's side and Birmingham are now five points from the last play-off spot after dropping points tonight.

  3. Boost for Bolton



    The bottom six remain in the same order but what a massive win for Bolton, who are now just two points from safety.

    Draws for Rotherham and Millwall give them a bit of breathing room, but it looks like the final two relegation places will be fought out between five teams.

  4. League Two headlines

    • Paul Scholes starts life as Oldham manager with a 4-1 win over lowly Yeovil.
    • MK Dons beat Newport 1-0 thanks to a late Chuks Aneke goal.
    • Crewe beat 10-man Carlisle 2-1 and Swindon boost their play-off hopes with a 2-0 win over seventh-placed Forest Green.
  5. League One headlines

    • Sunderland miss the chance to move up to third after being held to a 1-1 draw at home by Blackpool.
    • Doncaster move four points above seventh-placed Peterborough with a commanding 3-0 home victory over Southend.
    • Sam Seddon's goal gives bottom side AFC Wimbledon a 1-0 win at fellow strugglers Walsall - their first victory in eight league games.

    West Brom 2-2 Nott'm Forest

    West Brom

    There are Forest players with their hands on their knees in a sense of deflation after their lead was snatched away in the final minute of normal time.

    Forest had twice led, first from Stefan Johansen's own-goal and then when Jacob Murphy smashed in an equaliser, Ryan Yates cracked one off the post to restore the advantage.

    Jay Rodriguez's penalty, after a controversial call from Lee Mason, brought parity and a share of the spoils.

    Tough on Forest, Baggies will be delighted.

  7. Post update

    West Brom 2-2 Nott'm Forest

    Joe Lolley might have had a spot-kick for Nottingham Forest just moments after the West Brom pen but Lee Mason doesn't deem the shirt tug to be sufficient.

    Forest will be devastated at the manner of that leveller. But they're still chugging away trying to get a third, and go in front again.

    Over the three allotted minutes of injury time now...

  8. GOAL: West Brom 2-2 Nott'm Forest

    Jay Rodriguez (90 mins)

    Jay Rodriguez

    Oooh that was a bit soft wasn't it? Dwight Gayle tumbles in the box under a feather of a challenge from the Forest defence, and Lee Mason points to the spot.

    West Brom striker Jay Rodriguez doesn't get involved in any controversy, just bangs in the penalty.

    Level pegging right at the death. How Forest will rue that. Big goal for the Baggies.

  9. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 Nott'm Forest

    It's a bit of cliche but it's like the Alamo on the edge of the Forest box. Under siege at the present.

    Forest doing enough to keep clipping it clear as West Brom swarm, Gareth Barry slapping the ball over the top when well-placed.

    Time ticking down. Three minutes of normal time to go.


    Oldham 4-1 Yeovil

    Paul Scholes

    It's a perfect start to life as a manager for Paul Scholes!

    His Oldham side went in front in the last minute of the first half before making it 2-0 just after the break, Yeovil pulled one back but the hosts scored two late goals to give the result some gloss and the new boss something to build on.


    Bristol City 2-1 QPR

    Famara Diedhiou's controversial stoppage-time penalty wins it for Bristol City, making it nine wins in a row for Lee Johnson's men.

    QPR had led through former Robin Matt Smith, but the hosts came roaring back and are up to fifth in the table.


    Hull 2-2 Rotherham

    Hull eventually clear a last-gasp Rotherham corner and that's it at the KCOM Stadium.

    A cracking comeback from Paul Warne's Millers, who move two points clear of the bottom three.


    Birmingham 0-1 Bolton

    Bolton get their first away Championship victory since August, remember those heady, warm days?

    It comes against a Birmingham side that had scored nine in their past three games, and just on the cusp of the play-offs.

    It's three key points in the bid to avoid relegation, though they remain in the bottom three.

  14. Post update

    Birmingham 0-1 Bolton


    Che Adams got in behind on the left of the box, the chance was there, the headlines waiting to be written... but Matthews turned it away for a corner.

    It comes to nothing. That might be the game. Bolton to cling on.


    Millwall 0-0 Sheff Wed

    Loud boos greet the Millwall players at the final whistle at The Den - they still haven't scored at home in 2019.

    For Sheffield Wednesday it's an eighth clean sheet in 12 games.

    Maybe we should've predicted a 0-0...

  16. GOAL: Oldham 4-1 Yeovil

    Christopher Missilou (90 mins)

    Well, if it wasn't over before it is now.

    Christopher Missilou makes it 4-1 to Paul Scholes' side in the final minute with a well hit volley.

  17. GOAL: Bristol City 2-1 QPR

    Famara Diedhiou pen (90+2 mins)

    He keeps a cool head and scores the spot-kick!

    Famara Diedhiou was made to wait to take it but puts the penalty away and Bristol City have come from behind to lead QPR at Ashton Gate.

    Any more drama?

  18. GOAL: Oldham 3-1 Yeovil

    Mohammed Maouche (88 mins)

    That'll do for Paul Scholes and Oldham!

    The former Manchester United midfielder will have fond memories of decisive late goals from his playing days and Mohammed Maouche has sewn this one up for him in his first game as a manager with two minutes to play.

  19. Post update

    Birmingham 0-1 Bolton

    Into an extensive period of injury time at St Andrews, as Birmingham have their final rolls of the die to see if they can pinch a point.

    They just can't make the ball stick, and it's all hands to the pump for Bolton. Can they hold on?


    Bristol City 1-1 QPR

    Famara Diedhiou gets in front of QPR defender Darnell Furlong and goes down to win a stoppage time penalty for Bristol City!

    Just moments after QPR were denied one at the other end.

    Diedhiou to take... eventually.
