Sky Bet Championship: Matchday 11 review

17 October 2015

Brighton & Hove Albion displayed more resilience to maintain a healthy lead at the top of the Sky Bet Championship, beating Leeds United 2-1.

It was their first win in four, following three draws, and they left it late to claim the spoils, with Bobby Zamora scoring his first goal upon his return to the Seagulls in the 89th minute - meaning it was an unhappy 96th birthday for Leeds.

Reading are up to second after their 1-0 win at home to Charlton Athletic. Nick Blackman's crucial goal means it's now four successive wins for the Royals.

It was an unhappy debut for manager Neil Redfearn in the Rotherham United dugout, as he and his side went down 2-1 to Brentford, and Hull City kept pace with the top six, taking a point in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the early Saturday game.

Elsewhere, Milton Keynes Dons posted their third win of the season in convincing style, beating Blackburn Rovers 3-0, and Andre Gray netted twice as Burnley piled more misery on bottom-of-the-table Bolton Wanderers, as the Clarets won 2-0.

On Sunday, Chris Martin starred for Derby County as they overcame Wolves at the iPro Stadium. The front man netted twice for the Rams, while Bradley Johnson and Johnny Russell also struck in a 4-2 triumph.
