Championship Round Up

28 October 2013

A review of the weekend's Championship action

Although Blackpool may have felt dejection after conceding in injury time on Saturday, they should take comfort from moving up a place in the table.

Paul Ince’s men now find themselves in fourth, after a 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers, thanks to Nottingham Forest’s surprise defeat at struggling Yeovil Town.

Forest, Blackpool’s next opponents, lost 3-1 at Huish Park, as Yeovil moved off the bottom.

The meeting billed at the start of play as the game of the day, Burnley against QPR, didn’t disappoint.

Burnley beat promotion rivals Rangers 2-0 to move three points clear at the top.

Leicester City capitalised on QPR’s slip up, defeating Bournemouth 2-1 to move into second.

Only Burnley of the top six teams won on Saturday, as Reading could only draw at home to Millwall 1-1.

Clashes between Derby County and Birmingham City, and Bolton Wanderers and Ipswich Town both finished 1-1.

It was Huddersfield Town who prevailed in the West Yorkshire derby, seeing off Leeds United 3-2 in a thrilling contest.

There was a massive clash at the bottom of the table, although South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday couldn’t be separated, playing out a 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile, on Friday Middlesbrough enjoyed a winning start to life under caretaker-manager Mark Venus, thrashing Doncaster Rovers 4-0.

Finally, on Sunday Wigan Athletic drew 0-0 at Charlton Athletic, just as The Seasiders did earlier in the month.

Brighton host Watford tonight to conclude the weekend’s action.
