Sky Bet Championship round-up

1 November 2014

Watford moved two points clear at the top of the Sky Bet Championship table after coming from behind to claim a 3-1 home win over Millwall.

Martyn Woolford put the Lions in front on 12 minutes at Vicarage Road but the Hornets rallied through goals from Matej Vydra, Daniel Tozser and Gianni Munari.

Derby County slipped down after losing 2-1 at Brentford, with Chris Martin opening the scoring for the Rams, only for Andre Gray to equalise and then Stuart Dallas to strike deep into stoppage time.

Gary Rowett began his reign as Birmingham City boss with a goalless Midlands derby draw at Wolves and that result allowed Middlesbrough to move above Wanderers with a 3-0 romp at Rotherham.

Patrick Bamford and Yanic Wildschut put Boro in control before the Millers had Jordan Bowery sent off and Lee Tomlin added insult to injury late on.

Down at the bottom, there was no dream debut for new Blackpool manager Lee Clark as the Seasiders suffered a fourth straight defeat when going down 2-0 at home to Ipswich Town, with David McGoldrick and Daryl Murphy doing the damage.

Neil Redfearn's return to the helm also failed to inspire Leeds United as they lost 3-1 at Cardiff City, with Bruno Ecuele Manga, Federico Macheda and Kenwyne Jones netting for the Bluebirds and United only able to respond through Alex Mowatt.

At least Kit Symons managed to celebrate his permanent appointment as Fulham boss with a thrilling 3-3 draw at Wigan Athletic, where Ross McCormack saw red for the Cottagers and Leon Barnett was dismissed for the Latics.

There was also a penalty scored by each side, with Adam Forshaw, Roger Espinoza and Shaun Maloney on target for Wigan, while Bryan Ruiz bagged a brace and Lasse Vigen Christensen struck for Fulham.

Nottingham Forest's poor run of form continued with a 3-0 defeat at Huddersfield after Joel Lynch struck in the opening minute and Nahki Wells and Grant Holt added further scores.

Rudy Gestede enjoyed a double as Blackburn beat Reading 3-1, while Charlton drew 1-1 with Sheffield Wednesday after Igor Vetokele replied to Royston Drenthe's opener for the Owls.

The evening kick-off between Bournemouth and Brighton & Hove Albion ended 3-2 to the hosts, and that result moved them up to second.

On Friday, a Cameron Jerome brace gave Norwich City a 2-1 success against Bolton Wanderers, who found the net through Chung-Yong Lee.
