    That's all for tonight's action, but have no fear, there's still one more chance to get your EFL live fix before Big Ben strikes midnight tomorrow to bring 2016 to a close.

  2. Fog, abandonment and overhead kicks

    What a peculiar last night of floodlit action for 2016.

    It started with one game being postponed...

    Brighton fog

    Then there were goals flying in....

    Matt Ritchie

    Followed by more fog and an abandonment....

    Mad Stad fog

    ....and finished with a cracking goal!

  6. FULL-TIME

    Newcastle United 3-1 Nottingham Forest

    Dwight Gayle

    All over at St James' Park and Newcastle are back on the top of the Championship.

    It wasn't the perfect performance from Rafa Benitez's side who had to wait until Matt Mills was sent off for Forest before reclaiming the lead.

    Two more goal from Dwight Gayle to take his season tally to 19 already.

  7. Post update

    Reading A-A Fulham

    Before the abandonment at Reading tonight, there was a side-plot to the Fulham team news with on-loan Chris Martin absent.

    Speculation did link him with a return to parent club Derby, but Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic had this to say in his "post-match" press conference...

    Full-time at Portman Road and Brett Pitman's late show-stopping overhead kick has won it for Mick McCarthy's side.

    A first home win this month for Ipswich but an eighth defeat in nine for Bristol City.

    Brighton may be about to be replaced at the top of the Championship by Newcastle, but their fans are still chuffed with how 2016 has gone.

  10. League One Latest

    Millwall 2-1 Gillingham

    Gillingham have a goal back against Millwall, but is it too little too late?

    They're playing with 10 men remember after Paul Konchesky was sent off for a second yellow, and they've got 10 minutes left to complete the turnaround.

  11. GOAL (Pitman)

    Ipswich Town 2-1 Bristol City

    Pitman

    Well, well, well.

    I think there might be a goal of the season contender at Portman Road.

    Brett Pitman has put Ipswich back ahead with three minutes remaining with an overhead kick.

    Freddie Sears lifts a cross into the area and the former Bristol City man turns his back to goal and fires in with his right foot.

    Here's some pictures soon after the Reading v Fulham match was abandoned...

  13. GOAL (Gayle)

    Newcastle United 3-1 Nottingham Forest

    That looks like game, set and match Newcastle United.

    Dwight Gayle bags number 19 for the season and his second of the night.

    He didn't know a huge amount about it to be fair as it almost bounces off him as Matt Ritchie's deep cross finds its way through the Forest defence to him and his chest-down wrong-foot's Vladimir Stojkovic.

  14. Fog heaven's sake...

    Morecambe's comeback seems to be on hold against Hartlepool, the score in that one remains 3-1 to Hartlepool.

    Elsewhere, Wycombe still lead Cheltenham Town by just one goal, and at Huish Park....i'll let you take a guess.

    Yes, it's still 0-0 between Yeovil and Portsmouth and we're told conditions haven't improved since half-time (see below)

    Huish Park
  15. CLOSE!

    Ipswich Town 1-1 Bristol City

    Ipswich go close again to reclaiming the lead.

    Freddie Sears almost squeezes an effort over the line after Frank Fielding fails to hold on to a 50-50 ball.

    A Bristol City defender is there to clear the first effort and then Fielding is back on his feet to block the rebound.

  16. Post update

    Newcastle United 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Newcastle Forest

    10-man Forest struggling to create much in terms of chances as we move into the closing stages.

    Britt Assombalonga replaces goal-scorer Nicolao Dumitru as the visitors look to try and change the flow of things.

  18. Post update

    Ipswich Town 1-1 Bristol City

    Tammy Abraham

    Last 15 minutes of the game at Portman Road. 

    Tammy Abraham notched an equaliser for Bristol City earlier and he goes close to a second to put them ahead.

    He turns sharply from an Aden Flint knock-down, but can't keep his shot under the bar.
