Sky Bet Championship: Matchday 27 review

16 January 2016

Leaders Middlesbrough conceded their first Sky Bet Championship goal since 7th November as they fell 1-0 to Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

Boro were a matter of seconds away from registering a 10th consecutive clean sheet, which would have been a second-tier record, but an injury-time header from Wes Burns gifted the Robins a first win in seven matches.

Middlesbrough remain top of the standings, despite their loss, but had their lead cut to just two points after Hull City thrashed Charlton Athletic 6-0 at the KC Stadium.

Abel Hernandez was the star of the show, recording a first-half hat-trick, as Charlton made it 11 goals conceded in just two matches this week.

Derby County are now four games without a victory after they were beaten 3-0 by Birmingham City at the iPro Stadium. The Rams are four points adrift of second-placed Hull, while Birmingham remain in hot pursuit of the Play-Off places.

Elsewhere, Queens Park Rangers picked up their maiden win under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on the day that striker Charlie Austin left the club, while Milton Keynes Dons recorded a valuable 1-0 win over Reading and Cardiff City triumphed 3-1 away at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In the day’s early game, Gary Hooper made it four goals in two games in his final game for Sheffield Wednesday, as they downed Yorkshire rivals Leeds United 2-0 at Hillsborough.
