  1. Goodbye

    Sam Baldock

    So that's it for today's EFL action.

    Brighton are back on top of the Championship, as the Seagulls marked Chris Hughton's 100th league match in charge with a 2-0 win at Barnsley.

    Elsewhere, Huddersfield, Millwall and Oxford did the EFL proud in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

    Huddersfield held Manchester City to a goalless draw, Oxford were denied a replay by a late Middlesbrough goal, and Millwall knocked out the Premier League champions Leicester.

    Thanks for your company today. Hope you can join us again soon.

  2. Wolves flying the EFL flag in the FA Cup

    Wolves celebrate

    Championship club Wolves caused one of the biggest FA Cup upsets of the season when they won at Liverpool in round four.

    If anything, their task in the fifth round is even harder. Can they knock out Premier League leaders Chelsea, who have picked a very strong starting line-up at Molineux?

  3. Differing fortunes

    Monday: Newcastle v Aston Villa (20:00 GMT)

    Two of the clubs that were relegated from the Premier League last season have had vastly differing experiences of the Championship in 2016-17.

    Newcastle spent big and it worked - they're in a strong position to go up automatically, although they're down to second spot after Brighton's victory today.

    Aston Villa spent even bigger and it didn't - they're in danger of being dragged right into a relegation battle.

    Can Steve Bruce's side arrest their slide? Or will the Magpies move another step closer to the top flight? We'll have live text and BBC Radio 5 live sports extra commentary on the BBC Sport website and app from 19:30 GMT on Monday.

  4. League Two full-time scores

    Conor Chaplin

    Disaster for League Two's bottom two sides late on, with Newport collapsing from 2-0 up to a 3-2 defeat at Cambridge, and Notts County scoring a late winner at 23rd-placed Leyton Orient.

    Barnet were unable to hold on to their 1-0 lead against Portsmouth in Kevin Nugent's first game in charge, Conor Chaplin scoring Pompey's equaliser late on.

    Leaders Doncaster draw 1-1 with fourth-placed Luton, and it's the same score for second-placed Plymouth at Hartlepool.

    That allows Carlisle to close the gap to the Pilgrims to just three points, as they win 2-1 at play-off chasing Wycombe. 

    • Accrington 2-1 Colchester
    • Barnet 1-1 Portsmouth
    • Blackpool 2-2 Crewe
    • Cambridge 3-2 Newport
    • Cheltenham 2-0 Yeovil
    • Crawley 1-3 Morecambe
    • Doncaster 1-1 Luton
    • Exeter 1-1 Stevenage
    • Grimsby 3-0 Mansfield
    • Hartlepool 1-1 Plymouth
    • Leyton Orient 2-3 Notts County
    • Wycombe 1-2 Carlisle
  5. League One full-time scores

    Sheffield United 2-2 Scunthorpe

    A point apiece in the meeting of first against second in League One, with Sheffield United unable to find a winner against 10-man Scunthorpe.

    Bottom side Coventry hang on for their first league win since 1 November, beating Gillingham 2-1, while a mistake from Chesterfield keeper Thorsten Stuckmann allows George Miller to score a late winner for Bury in Lee Clark's first game in charge.

    Bradford conceded a two-goal lead in their 2-2 draw with fellow promotion hopefuls Bolton, but the best entertainment came at Spotland, where Rochdale and Charlton play out a 3-3 draw.

    • Bradford 2-2 Bolton
    • Chesterfield 1-2 Bury
    • Coventry 2-1 Gillingham
    • MK Dons 0-1 Fleetwood
    • Port Vale 1-1 Bristol Rovers
    • Rochdale 3-3 Charlton
    • Sheffield United 1-1 Scunthorpe
    • Shrewsbury 2-1 Wimbledon
    • Southend 2-2 Northampton
    • Swindon 0-0 Oldham
    • Walsall 2-0 Peterborough
  6. Championship full-time scores

    • Birmingham 1-4 QPR
    • Burton 2-1 Norwich
    • Cardiff 5-0 Rotherham
    • Ipswich 1-1 Leeds
    • Nottingham Forest 1-2 Sheffield Wednesday

  7. The Championship headlines

    Sam Baldock
    • Brighton & Hove Albion return to the top of the Championship table, winning 2-0 at Barnsley thanks to Sam Baldock's second-half double.
    • Norwich City's six-game unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 loss at struggling Burton Albion, whose winning goal was struck by Michael Kightly.
    • Cardiff City continued their superb run of form with a thumping 5-0 victory over bottom club Rotherham United, Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock's former side.
    • Play-off hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday opened a seven-point gap on seventh place with a 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest, but Leeds United could only draw 1-1 at Ipswich Town.
    • Gianfranco Zola's Birmingham City were beaten 4-1 at home by Queens Park Rangers, while Wigan Athletic and Preston North End played out a goalless draw at the DW Stadium.

    We're still waiting on a final whistle at St Andrew's, where Emilio Nsue has got a consolation goal for Birmingham against QPR, but it's all over in the rest of our Championship games.

    We'll round up today's action shortly.


    FT: Millwall 1-0 Leicester

    League One Millwall are into the last eight! With 10 men, they've beaten Premier League champions Leicester 1-0 with a late goal from Shaun Cummings at The Den.

  10. GOAL - Birmingham 0-4 QPR

    Yeni N'gbakoto

    What a result for QPR as Yeni N'gbakoto makes it 4-0 at St Andrew's with a stunning free-kick from 30 yards.

    A miserable day for Birmingham and Gianfranco Zola.

  11. GOAL - Birmingham 0-3 QPR

    Idrissa Sylla

    QPR celebrate

    Idrissa Sylla heads in a right-wing cross and QPR are 3-0 up at Birmingham, whose wretched run of form continues.

  12. Post update

    Sheffield United 1-1 Scunthorpe

    And now Sheffield United hit the post against Scunthorpe in League One! Jay O'Shea for the hosts.

    Heading for a draw there now, it seems.

  13. GOAL - Cardiff 5-0 Rotherham

    Kenneth Zohore

    Kenneth Zohore's second. Cardiff's fifth. The points are safe, we think.

  14. Leaders level with Luton

    League Two latest

    Kevin Nugent

    The top two in League Two haven't found it easy today, but both sides are level as they enter the closing stages.

    Matty Kennedy has scored to put second-placed Plymouth back on terms at Hartlepool, while Doncaster's Alfie May makes it 1-1 against fourth-placed Luton.

    Meanwhile, Kevin Nugent's first game as Barnet boss could be set to end in victory, as Mauro Vilhete has made it 1-0 late on against play-off hopefuls Portsmouth.

    Struggling Leyton Orient have scored again as well, Teddy Mezague making it 2-2 at home to Notts County.

  15. Post update

    Sheffield United 1-1 Scunthorpe

    My goodness me, 10-man Scunthorpe almost had a winner at Sheffield United!

    But Paddy Madden's effort struck the post.

  16. Post update

    Burton 2-1 Norwich

    Norwich City

    We haven't had any Championship goals for a while.

    Burton have gone close to sealing victory over Norwich but substitute Lloyd Dyer wasted a golden opportunity.

  17. Bolton back on terms at Bradford

    League One latest

    Phil Parkinson

    He wasn't smiling earlier, but Phil Parkinson will be sporting a very wide grin now as Bolton have come from 2-0 down to level the scores with his former club Bradford.

    Gary Madine has got the Trotters' second at Valley Parade.

    Better news too for Bury manager Lee Clark in his first game in charge, with opponents Chesterfield having a man sent off before Andrew Tutte fires in for the Shakers from 30 yards out to make it 1-1.

    There are still 10 minutes left for the hosts to find a winner in that one.

    Clark Can't: Charlton 4 West Ham 4. I'm a Hammers fan but sat in the Charlton end with friends. A lot of lip biting that evening...

  19. Post update

    Sheffield United 1-1 Scunthorpe

    Sheffield United are being frustrated in their search for a win at home to 10-man Scunthorpe, their closest promotion challengers.

    Caolan Lavery has replaced James Hanson up front for the Blades, who began five points clear at the top of the table.
