  6. Post update

    ....scores coming in up and down the land.

    We'll bring you all the headlines shortly....


    Bristol City 2-3 Reading

    What a late, late show from Reading.

    With 18 minutes to play, they were trailing 2-0, but goals from Liam Kelly and a Yann Kermorgant brace have turned it around for them.

    For Bristol City, it's a sixth straight defeat.

  8. Clayton's late show

    League One update

    Bolton have equalised again against Coventry, Max Clayton scoring in injury time.

    Bradford have battled back from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 at Northampton.


    Blackburn Rovers 1-0 Newcastle United

    Charlie Mulgrew

    All over at Ewood Park and Blackburn have defied the form book to upset the Championship leaders.

  10. GOAL (Kermorgant)

    Bristol City 2-3 Reading

    My word! Reading look to have stolen this one out of nowhere in injury time.

    Yann Kermorgant again the scorer and it looks like a huge comeback is complete. It's a bit of a special strike too from some 25 yards and low into the bottom corner.

  11. CLOSE!

    Blackburn Rovers 1-0 Newcastle United

    Dwight Gayle almost there with goal number 20 and an equaliser for Newcastle.

    He's inside the box, turns, shoots, but can't shoot on target!


    Fulham 1-2 Brighton

    Lewis Dunk scores

    It's all over at Craven Cottage where Brighton showed their mettle to come from behind to win thanks to two goals in two minutes with a Tomer Hemed penalty and Lewis Dunk header.

    Lucas Piazon had given Fulham the lead after Seagulls keeper David Stockdale had saved a first-half penalty from Stefan Johansen.

    It looks like Brighton are going top of the Championship.


    Blackburn Rovers 1-0 Newcastle United

    Three minutes being added on at Ewood Park...

  14. Rovers return

    League Two update

    It's looking like being a very good day for Doncaster Rovers.

    With both Grimsby and Plymouth losing Darren Ferguson's men are going back to the top of the table thanks to a Fraser Franks own goal.

    Elsewhere, Wycombe have come from a goal behind to lead against rock bottom Newport.

  15. Canaries on song

    Championship update

    Nelson Oliveira

    Nelson Oliveira has his hat-trick as Norwich now lead 10-man Derby 3-0.

    Elsewhere, Brentford have turned it around against Birmingham and now lead 2-1 thanks to an own goal from David Davis and Pawel Wszolek has put QPR back in front against Ipswich. 

  16. GOAL (Kermorgant)

    Bristol City 2-2 Reading

    All square at Ashton Gate!

    Reading equalise through Yann Kermorgant with four minutes to play.

    A shot on the turn inside the box from the Frenchman has the Royals level and potentially with momentum to go on and win it.

  17. Post update

    Blackburn Rovers 1-0 Newcastle United

    Owen Coyle

    Could be a huge result for both Blackburn and Owen Coyle coming up?

    Might be the longest six minutes of his managerial career so far though...

  18. Lucky Charlie?

    Blackburn Rovers 1-0 Newcastle United

    Charlie Mulgrew has scored for Blackburn in both games Rovers have played against Newcastle this season.

    They're also his only two goals of the campaign so far...

    A lucky charm? Just under 10 minutes to go at Ewood Park....

  19. GOAL (Wood)

    Leeds 3-0 Rotherham

    Chris Wood

    Chris Wood puts the game to bed with a close range finish.

    Garry Monk's men have been superb in the second half and, as it stands, are going up to third in the table.

  20. Bogle at the double

    League Two update

    Grimsby have turned it around at Carlisle thanks to a second half double from striker Omar Bogle.

    Elsewhere in League Two, Wycombe have levelled against Newport and Cambridge are now 4-0 up against Notts County.
