Sky Bet Championship round-up

27 September 2014

We take a look at the weekend action in the Sky Bet Championship

Fulham finally claimed their first Sky Bet Championship victory of the season with a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Birmingham City on Saturday.

Second-half goals from Tim Hoogland and Hugo Rodallega saw Kit Symons' men end their miserable start to life in the second tier, after David Cotterill had put the Blues in front before the interval.

The Cottagers climbed off the bottom of the table, with Blackpool - now the only winless team in the division - taking their place after throwing away a one-goal lead to lose 3-1 at home to Norwich City, who now sit top.

New Leeds United boss Darko Milanic suffered a defeat in his first game in charge, as Ramallo Jota and Alan McCormack were both on target in a 2-0 home win for Brentford.

Managerless Cardiff City recorded their first win in six games by beating Sheffield Wednesday 2-1.

Sean Morrison scored his first City goal before cancelling it out himself by putting through his own net, but Anthony Pilkington reprieved him by netting the winner just after the hour mark.

Nottingham Forest and Charlton Athletic retained their unbeaten records but both were held to goalless draws at home by Brighton & Hove Albion and Middlesbrough respectively.

Chris Powell enjoyed his first win as Huddersfield Town boss as Nahki Wells scored twice in the 2-1 win over Millwall.

Blackburn Rovers fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Watford.

Matej Vydra and Daniel Tozser put the Hornets 2-0 up at the break but Rudy Gestede and Ryan Tunnicliffe responded in the second half for the hosts to earn a point.

Wigan Athletic's abject away form continued as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth - their fourth defeat in five league games on the road this campaign.

Chris Martin bagged a brace as Derby County recorded a second successive away win, beating Bolton Wanderers 2-0, while two goals in the opening six minutes helped Ipswich Town beat Rotherham United by the same scoreline as they recorded a fourth league win in a row.

On Sunday, Glenn Murray's last-gasp equaliser denied Wolves joint top spot in the Sky Bet Championship after a dramatic 3-3 draw at Reading.

Wanderers were on the brink of joining Norwich at the summit after Nick Blackman's own-goal gave them the lead in a see-saw match with just six minutes remaining.

But Murray had other ideas and with a minute to go crashed in his third goal since his deadline-day switch from Crystal Palace on loan.

Earlier in the second half a crazy three-minute spell saw Wolves come from behind to lead 2-1, only to immediately concede an equaliser to Jake Taylor.

The result still saw Wanderers, who are challenging for back-to-back promotions following last season's League 1 title success, climb back up to third - but they have won only once on the road so far this term.
