  1. Until next time....

    So, that's that for this evening's live action from the EFL.

    We're a little bit closer to knowing who'll have plenty to cheer come the end of May and who might want to hide under the covers.

    But, the action all resumes on Friday night with Brighton against Derby County in the Championship.

    We'll have full live coverage of that game from the Amex Stadium right here on BBC Sport to kick-off our weekend of EFL coverage.

    Until then - thanks for being with us.

    Reading 0-0 Newcastle

    Approaching the last five minutes at the Madejski Stadium and still no goals.

    Can Newcastle find one to maintain their five-point lead over Brighton?


    Fulham 1-1 Leeds

    And that stunning finish from Cairney is pretty much the final kick of the night.

    Fulham finally got their goal after pressing and pressing all evening. 

    It started as a nightmare for them with Tim Ream's early own goal before a shot off the underside of the crossbar from Neeskins Kebano was not given.
