Five Things We Learned

24 February 2014

A Look Back On The Weekend's Results

There were some crucial results in The Championship over the weekend with wins for the top and bottom three having a big impact on the shape of the table.

Here's five things we learned over the weekend…

Burnley end Forest streak..

A brace from Sam Vokes ended Nottingham Forest’s 14-match unbeaten run in The Championship as Burnley made it ten league games in a row without defeat themselves.

Vokes’ 18th goal of the season ensured The Clarets stay two clear of third-place Derby after Steve McClaren’s men grabbed a late winner at home to Bournemouth.

It is now 42 goals for the season between Vokes and his strike partner Danny Ings as the pair continue to fire their promotion push.

Late defeat for QPR…

It is now four league games without a win for Harry Redknapp’s side as they slipped to a surprise defeat at lowly Charlton.

The Hoops are now seven points behind Burnley in the automatic promotion places but do have a game in hand on those around them.

Wigan on the charge…

Uwe Rosler’s Wigan moved to within a point of the play-off places after an away win at Brighton – their third league win in a row.
Wigan have lost just two of their 13 league games since the German took charge in December and have a game in hand on Reading above them in the table.

Relief for Freedman…

Bolton picked up their first win in 11 league games with a comfortable 2-0 win over Watford.

Wanderers are now just two points behind Blackpool in the table.

Leicester continue stroll at the top…

A comfortable 3-0 win over mid-table Ipswich kept Nigel Pearson’s side eight points clear at the top of The Championship.

It is 13 games since they last tasted defeat in the league as they continue to look certainties to finish the season as champions.
