Sky Bet EFL: Matchday round-up

3 December 2016

Norwich City and Fulham hit five goals in the Sky Bet Championship on Matchday 19 in an action-packed round of games.

The Canaries ended a run of five consecutive defeats by thumping Brentford 5-0, while Fulham recorded the same scoreline at home to Reading.

On Friday, Newcastle United lost 2-1 at Nottingham Forest, but they remain top of the division as Brighton could only draw 0-0 at Cardiff City.

The Magpies’ defeat was one of three matches live on Sky Sports, with Wolverhampton Wanderers’ 2-1 win at QPR on Thursday and Leeds United's 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday evening also played out in front of the cameras.

Elsewhere, Sheffield Wednesday climbed up to sixth by seeing off Preston North End 2-1, and that’s the same scoreline Burton chalked up at home to managerless Rotherham United to end a run of four winless matches.

Doncaster Rovers moved to the top of Sky Bet League Two with a thrilling 4-3 victory at Stevenage.
