    Christoph Zimmermann in action for Norwich

    That is it for our coverage of tonight's Championship action.

    What a night it has been, with Norwich being denied a dramatic late comeback by a 97th-minute equaliser and 10-man Aston Villa winning at Rotherham in a game which had three penalties.

    The scrap at the bottom continues to continue, with four sides separated by just two points.

    We'll be back on Saturday for what is likely to be another dramatic day in the EFL.

    Norwich have another day to work out where it all went wrong in injury time against Reading - the Canaries travel to Wigan on Sunday lunchtime.

  2. White Rose Rivalries

    #bbcefl

    Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds

    Don your flat caps, grab the whippet's lead and set yourself down with a pint of Taddy lager as this Saturday will be a bit like Yorkshire Day on BBC Sport.

    Join us for Saturday's EFL live text, where the best of three leagues, 72 clubs and 35 games (there's one on Sunday y'see) are showcased, with the 17:30 BST all-Yorkshire kick-off between Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday the feature game.

    With so much yet to be decided, you'd be a fool to ignore it. And if you do, we'll send Geoff Boycott, Sean Bean and a couple of the folk from Emmerdale round to make you change your mind.

  3. Ipswich avoid drop - for now

    FT: Brentford 2-0 Ipswich, Rotherham 1-2 Aston Villa

    At the bottom, Rotherham, Reading and Wigan were all leading their respective matches at one stage.

    By the end of the evening, only the Royals grabbed a point.

    As it is, Millwall move above the Wigan on goal difference and Reading go above the Latics on goals scored.

    Ipswich are 14 points from safety and get a stay of execution, but could now be relegated on Saturday.

    Birmingham and QPR, meanwhile, are both on 45 points and not out of the woods yet.

    Bottom of Championship
  4. Leeds the midweek winners

    FT: Norwich 2-2 Reading, Birmingham 1-1 Sheff Utd

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

    Norwich pick up a point and hold a seven-point cushion to third place, but it would have been nine but for Andy Rinomhota's dramatic late equaliser for Reading.

    But Leeds, who won at Preston last night, are back in second after Sheffield United failed to win at Birmingham.

    There are still five more games to go, so expect more twists and turns in the race for automatic promotion.

    Top of Championship
  5. FULL-TIME

    Rotherham 1-2 Aston Villa

    A genuine tale of two halves, as Aston Villa survived a first-half horrorshow to come out on top against Rotherham United.

    Villa missed a penalty through Tammy Abraham's timid effort, and then conceded a spot kick of their own when Tyrone Mings handled - earning a second yellow in the process.

    Will Vaulks left the 10 men Villans a goal down, and it wasn't till the second half that they responded. They levelled when Jonathan Kodja slammed home his own penalty after Semi Ajayi handled, and went in front when Jack Grealish rolled home.

    There were a few nervous moments afterwards, but Villa deserve credit for their response and ability to hang on when it looked a bit sticky. Rotherham are left to ponder their Championship future...

  6. Post update

    Rotherham 1-2 Aston Villa

    For a moment Villa were in tease mode, toying with Rotherham but the ball was lost and it looked a bit precarious.

    Villa's Glenn Whelan got his foot on the ball though to ensure it was cool and calm in midfield again. Just the kind of player you need to take the sting out of things.

  7. FULL-TIME

    Norwich 2-2 Reading

    No time for any more late drama.

    Reading had looked on track for all three points, then were not going to get anything.

    But a goal right at the death means they grab a draw.

  8. FULL-TIME

    Hull 2-1 Wigan

    Hull City's late goal from Jordy De Wijs leaves Wigan stuck in the relegation mix-up, having let slip their half-time lead.

    Nick Powell put the Latics in front, guiding the ball in from just inside the box - but goals from Fraizer Campbell and De Wijs ensured the points went to East Yorkshire instead of back over the Pennines.

  9. GOAL: Norwich 2-2 Reading

    Andy Rinomhota (90+7 mins)

    A sensational finish at Carrow Road.

    It looks like Norwich have weathered late pressure, but then Andy Rinomhota gets the ball on the edge of the area and side-foots into the top left-hand corner.

    The home fans are stunned after their late comeback.

  10. FULL-TIME

    Millwall 0-0 QPR

    It ends honours even at The Den.

    Millwall set to move a point further away from the bottom three but fail to drag Rangers into the scrap at this stage.

    A first point for QPR caretaker John Eustace, but it's now one win in 17 in the league for the west London side.

  11. FULL-TIME

    Birmingham 1-1 Sheff Utd

    Sheffield United miss out on the chance to go back into the Championship top-two after they are well handled by Birmingham City in a 1-1 draw at St Andrews.

    Enda Stevens goal was cancelled out by Michael Morrison, and the Blades who could have gone second tonight with a win, just couldn't find a way through.

    Credit Blues, they got the game plan spot on.

  12. Post update

    Birmingham 1-1 Sheff Utd

    John Egan's header loops away from danger and it's gathered in by Lee Camp.

    Frantic and frenetic finish. Still level.

  13. FULL-TIME

    Brentford 2-0 Ipswich

    Brentford

    Brentford ease to victory and pick up their first win in six games.

    Ipswich edge closer to the drop.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 2-1 Reading

    Two late changes for Reading, as they throw on strikers Sam Baldock and Danny Loader.

    Two minutes left and Norwich fans are singing "we're going to win the league".

  15. Post update

    Norwich 2-1 Reading

    Norwich almost make the points safe but Jordan Rhodes' header is straight at Emiliano Martinez.

    At the other end, a header from Yakou Meite drops narrowly wide of a Norwich post.

  16. GOAL: Hull 2-1 Wigan

    Jordy De Wijs (89 mins)

    Crushing goal for Wigan, who could almost smell the rarified air away from the relegation zone, but that late goal - powered in from Jordy De Wijs from a corner will deny them anything.

    The Latics led at half-time but they are now staring down the barrel at defeat. Cruel.

  17. CLOSE!

    Birmingham 1-1 Sheff Utd

    David McGoldrick heads over from yards out!

    The corner sailed across, looked a golden opportunity but the Sheffield United forward - who used precision rather than power - just couldn't keep it down.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 2-1 Reading

    There will be six minutes of injury time.

    Norwich eat into them by replacing striker Teemu Pukki with a more defensive-minded player Timm Klose.

    Reading could still grab something.

  19. Post update

    Hull 1-1 Wigan

    Hull City have made a late change, bringing on Chris Martin.

    I'd quite like him to get a booking, so I can say it was all yellow.

    I thank you. Here all week.

  20. GOAL: Norwich 2-1 Reading

    Christoph Zimmermann (88 mins)

    Norwich

    Outswinging corner whipped in, and the skipper Christoph Zimmermann meets it firmly and finds the top left-hand corner of the goal.

    In a flash, Norwich have turned it around, and all the players flood to the bench to celebrate.

    Late goals have been their calling card this season, and they are the stuff of champions.

    Norwich's promotion push looks unlikely to be stopped, and they are on course for a ninth straight win.
