  1. Post update

    That's it for today - you can read match reports of today's EFL matches on the Football section of the BBC Sport website.

    There's more Championship coverage tomorrow from 14:45 GMT when Derby host Blackburn. Hope you can join us then!

  2. At the bottom of the Championship...

    It's as tight as ever at the bottom. Middlesbrough win for the first time since 1 January to move out of the relegation zone, and defeated Charlton move into the bottom three.

    Hull's crushing loss at Stoke drops them ever closer to the drop zone.

    Luton drew at Wigan to move off the bottom.

  3. At the top of the Championship

    We have a new name at the Championship summit this evening.

    Leeds move top courtesy of their victory against Huddersfield while West Brom's goalless draw against Swansea means they drop to second.

    Elsewhere in the top six, Brentford move up to fourth thanks to their 5-0 thrashing of Sheffield Wednesday while Fulham drew against Bristol City in the early kick-off and are now six points off the top two.

    • Oxford come from 2-0 down to win at Shrewsbury and climb to third in the table.
    • Gillingham scored a stoppage-time equaliser at Sunderland, while Peterborough beat Portsmouth to go fourth.
    • Tranmere win at Accrington to keep their slim hopes of survival alive.
  6. Championship full-time headlines

    As another frantic day in the English Football League ends, let's take a look at some of the headlines...


    Charlton 0-1 Middlesbrough

    Paddy McNair's goal was enough for Boro to get all three points at The Valley against a wasteful Charlton.

    This win puts a record of no wins in their past 10 league games behind Middlesbrough boss Jonathan Woodgate.


    Stoke 5-1 Hull

    Two goals from Nick Powell, a Tyrese Campbell penalty and former Hull man Sam Clucas scored a brace as Stoke thrashed Hull.

    Leonardo Da Silva Lopes scored a consolation for the Tigers

    Hull are now winless in their last 11 Championship fixtures and sit just above the relegation zone.


    Wigan 0-0 Luton

    In-form Wigan fail to make it four wins in a row after this stalemate while Luton move off the bottom of the table but stay in the drop zone to swap places with Barnsley.


    Preston 1-3 QPR

    QPR come from behind to beat Preston with 10 men in one of the comeback victories of the day.

    A second half to forget for Preston, meanwhile, as they miss the opportunity to bolster their place in the Championship play-off places.

  12. Post update

    League One latest

    A late equaliser for Gillingham at Sunderland!


    Birmingham 1-3 Reading

    Reading fell behind to Scott Hogan's early goal but Blues' long unbeaten run is ended by the Royals' second-half turnaround.


    Swansea 0-0 West Brom

    All over and West Brom slip to second after drawing against Swansea as Leeds have beaten Huddersfield.

    Meanwhile, a decent point for the Swans.


    Leeds 2-0 Huddersfield

    All over at Elland Road and a massive victory for Leeds in their Yorkshire derby against Huddersfield.

    Top of the Championship awaits the result at the Liberty Stadium, with West Brom currently goalless against Swansea.


    Barnsley 0-2 Cardiff

    Goals from Will Vaulks and Callum Paterson were enough for the Bluebirds to pick up all three points at Oakwell.

    That's back-to-back defeats for Barnsley who go bottom of the league while Cardiff avoid going five Championship games without a win for the first time since 2016.


    Brentford 5-0 Sheff Wed

    A thumping Brentford win gives them their first three-point haul in the Championship for a month.

    Meanwhile it's a day to forget for Sheffield Wednesday who just weren't at the races.

  18. Post update

    Leeds 2-0 Huddersfield

    Five minutes added on at Elland Road and, barring a late West Brom goal against Swansea, Leeds are going top of the Championship.

  19. GOAL: Birmingham 1-3 Reading

    Pele (87 mins)

    Pele (not that one) surely wraps up the three points for Reading.

  20. GOAL: Stoke 5-1 Hull

    Nick Powell (85 mins)

    It's absolute heartache for the Hull fans but Stoke have been brilliant today.

    Nick Powell flicks it home at the near post to make it five and that's his second of the game.
