  1. Goodbye

    #bbcefl

    West Brom

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

    The teams at the top of the second tier haven't had much to shout about this evening, while Southend had a night to forget as they conceded seven goals at home.

    New Shrimpers boss Sol Campbell has much to ponder after watching on from the stands.

    If you're already itching for you next fix of football then do not despair, as we'll do it all again tomorrow - with five Championship games and three in League One.

    Nottingham Forest will have the chance to move into the automatic promotion places, while there could be a slug-fest at the bottom as fellow strugglers Huddersfield and Middlesbrough meet.

    Join us then.

  4. Little change at the bottom

    Barnsley stay at foot

    No changes in the bottom six, although a point for Barnsley brings them level with Stoke.

    Reading move three points clear of the drop zone courtesy of their draw at QPR.

    Huddersfield entertain fellow strugglers Middlesbrough tomorrow.

    Championship bottom
  5. Championship table

    Baggies stay top

    That hard-earned point for West Brom keeps them two points clear of Leeds - who also drew at Preston.

    The evening's big winners are Sheffield Wednesday, who move up to third following their 1-0 win over Stoke.

    Nottingham Forest will go second if they beat Hull at the City Ground tomorrow night.

    Championship top six
  6. FULL-TIME

    West Brom 2-2 Barnsley

    Bottom club Barnsley hang on for a point to deny the league leaders, but they'll be so disappointed having been 2-0 up.

    The Tykes are now 12 league games without a win - they have not tasted victory since the first day of the campaign.

    West Brom remain two points clear at the top of the table, but missed the chance to extend their lead over Leeds United to four points.

    Barnsley had eight players booked, and will no doubt be hearing from the Football Association about that.

  7. Post update

    West Brom 2-2 Barnsley

    We are into five minutes of added time at The Hawthorns.

    Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow has been replaced, so there will be no hat-trick for him.

    The Tykes have the ball in the Albion half at the moment.

  8. Post update

    West Brom 2-2 Barnsley

    The Tykes are feeling the heat now.

    Two more quick-fire bookings for the visitors as Conor Chaplin and Cameron McGeehan see yellow for poor challenges.

    That is seven yellow cards for Barnsley tonight.

  9. FULL-TIME

    Sheff Wed 1-0 Stoke

    Sheffield Wednesday take the three points thanks to Massimo Luongo's first-half goal.

    The visitors, who had won their previous two games to climb off the bottom of the table, lost Peter Etebo, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Tom Edwards to injuries.

    Wednesday climb to third.

  10. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke win a free-kick in a promising position but Mark Duffy smashes it straight into the wall.

    Into the final minute of seven added on.

  11. GOAL: West Brom 2-2 Barnsley

    Matheus Pereira (81 mins)

    The Baggies have their equaliser.

    On-loan forward Matheus Pereira is left unmarked just inside the area to head in a cross from Conor Townsend from the left flank.

    The ball went low but maybe Brad Collins could have done better with that one.

    The Albion onslaught will continue as they search a winner, which would extend their lead at the top of the table to four points.

  12. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 Barnsley

    Still 10 minutes plus stoppages left at West Brom.

    Charlie Austin has sent an effort wide from just inside the area for the hosts after some neat passing.

    Tykes keeper Brad Collins has already been booked, so Barnsley fans can forget about any time-wasting.

  13. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-0 Stoke

    We're into seven minutes of stoppage time at Hillsborough and it's all got a bit fraught...

  14. FULL-TIME

    Millwall 2-2 Cardiff

    Millwall and Cardiff share the spoils in south-west London.

    The Lions have one win in 10 as Gary Rowett prepares to take over.

    Cardiff have lost just one of their past 10 - but have drawn six of those matches.

    Another stalemate for the Bluebirds.

  15. FULL-TIME

    Birmingham 1-0 Blackburn

    Blues hold on to claim all three points thanks to Maxime Colin's first goal since March 2018.

    Blackburn are now without a win in five.

  16. FULL-TIME

    Southend 1-7 Doncaster

    That got very messy for nine-man Southend in front of new boss Sol Campbell.

    What a job he's got on his hands, starting with the visit of leaders Ipswich on Saturday.

    Sol Campbell
  17. FULL-TIME

    Swansea 0-3 Brentford

    Brentford put in an accomplished performance to register a second successive victory, and their third on the road this season.

    Swansea have only won one of their past seven in the league, and their fast start to the campaign is a fading memory.

  18. FULL-TIME

    QPR 2-2 Readng

    It ends in a draw at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

    Mark Bowen remains undefeated after his second game as Royals boss - but the Berkshire side have just one win in eight.

    QPR miss the chance to make it seven wins from nine and move up to second in the table.

  19. FULL-TIME

    Preston 1-1 Leeds

    Eddie Nketiah

    A game Leeds should have won, nearly lost and ended up drawing.

    A dramatic end to the game sees Leeds desperately appealing for a penalty but they have to settle for a point at Deepdale.

    Tom Barkhuizen put the hosts in front before Leeds sub Eddie Nketiah grabbed the leveller late on.

  20. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke are a goal down and they're going to end the game a man down as Tom Edwards limps off the pitch in some discomfort.

    The Potters had to take off Peter Etebo and Cameron Carter-Vickers in the first half because of injuries and used their third sub earlier this half.
