Fulham racked up the biggest score-line of the weekend, beating Bristol City at Craven Cottage. Marco Silva’s men came from behind to win 6-2 as the Championship’s leading marksman Aleksandar Mitrović grabbed a hat-trick against the Robins, taking his tally to 27 goals for the season.

Luton Town’s Kai Naismith popped up deep into stoppage time to secure maximum points for the Hatters against Bournemouth in a 3-2 triumph. Meanwhile, there was more late drama, as Middlesbrough moved inside the top six thanks to Matt Crooks' 95th minute winner against Reading.

Wins were also on the cards for Coventry City who saw off Peterborough United 4-1, Blackburn Rovers, as Tony Mowbray’s side edged Cardiff City 1-0, and Queens Park Rangers, who defeated West Bromwich Albion 1-0.

 

 

And Derby County made it five unbeaten and moved off the bottom with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United, courtesy of a Tom Lawrence double.
