  1. Goodbye


    That's it from us today, on an eventful day at both ends of the Championship.

    There's no action in the second tier for a couple of weeks because of the international break, but you can keep up to date with the latest news from the EFL, as well as reports from games in League One and League Two, on the BBC Sport website.

    We'll resume our EFL live text coverage on Friday 31 March, when Derby host QPR.

    Thanks for your company.

  4. We've set our standards high - Bridcutt

    FT: Leeds 2-0 Brighton

    Leeds goalscorer Chris Wood tells Sky Sports: "It was a game of minimal chances but Rob Green and the back line have been phenomenal. The management staff have been brilliant with me and that's why it's going so well."

    Leeds captain Liam Bridcutt: "When we're not playing as well as we have, Chris has been brilliant. We dug in, fought for each other and came away with the win. We've set our standards high and we go into every game knowing we can win."

    FT: Leeds 2-0 Brighton

    Leeds are up to fourth with that win and eight points behind Brighton.

    The Seagulls would have gone top with a win at Elland Road, but they remain a point behind leaders Newcastle and six clear of third-placed Huddersfield.

    Reaction to come shortly.

    Leeds 2-0 Brighton

    We're into three minutes of added time and Brighton get a corner, which Glenn Murray heads wide from eight yards.

    No miracle comeback here for Brighton, I'm afraid.

  8. Post update

    Leeds 2-0 Brighton

    Pablo Hernandez gets a standing ovation from the Leeds supporters as he leaves the field, to be replaced by Eunan O'Kane.

  9. Wood doubles Leeds' lead

    Leeds 2-0 Brighton

    Chris Wood confidently and powerfully converts the penalty which will surely wrap up the three points for Leeds.

    They'll be going fourth, within eight points of Brighton in second, and Newcastle will be staying top.

  10. Warne embarrassed by Rotherham defeat

    FT: QPR 5-1 Rotherham

    Interim Rotherham boss Paul Warne was embarrassed by his side's second-half capitulation as a 5-1 defeat at QPR left them all but relegated.

    The Millers are now 24 points adrift of safety - the exact number left to play for - but a goal difference of -54 has realstically sealed their fate.  

    "My overriding emotion is of embarrassment," Warne said. "I'm clapping our fans at the end and most of them were pretty courteous to me. If they were throwing stuff at me I'd understand why.

    "I honestly believe we were the better side in the first half apart from the fact we gave away two howling goals. The second was an absolute calamity.

     "To then concede two, it's game over, and you can tell our lads are used to losing. I'm not saying they threw the towel in, because that's not what they did, but you could tell they just wanted the game to end after 65 minutes."

  12. Penalty to Leeds

    Leeds 1-0 Brighton

    Fikayo Tomori on Souleymane Doukara. Clumsy. Naive. Penalty.

  13. Post update

    Leeds 1-0 Brighton

    Brighton substitute Solly March, who came on for Jiri Skalak about 10 minutes ago, is causing problems for Leeds.

    Another teasing cross from the left is scrappily cleared by the home defence.

    Leeds make their second change as Stuart Dallas replaces Hadi Sacko, while Oliver Norwood is being prepared by the Brighton bench.

  14. Post update

    Leeds 1-0 Brighton

    Robert Green comes to Leeds' rescue once more.

    Glenn Murray is allowed far too much room in the box and he fires in a powerful half-volley from 15 yards, which Green is equal to.

  15. Bluebirds won the battle - Warnock

    FT: Cardiff City 3-1 Ipswich Town

    Manager Neil Warnock said his Cardiff City side were good value for their 3-1 win over Ipswich Town.

    Neil Warnock

    Warnock said: "If you had told me we would have had 51 points with eight games to go, I would have snapped your hand off.

    "We were winning battles in every department, and the fans got behind us to create a brilliant atmosphere. We created a lot more today and I really enjoyed it."

  16. Post update

    Leeds 1-0 Brighton

    Sam Baldock

    It's been a quiet game by Sam Baldock's recent standards.

    The Brighton striker had scored five goals in his previous eight games but there will be no goal for him in this one. He's replaced by Arsenal loanee Chuba Akpom.

    Leeds make a change too - Alfonso Pedraza is off and on comes Souleymane Doukara.

  17. Post update

    Leeds 1-0 Brighton

    Two big chances in the space of a minute for Brighton to equalise.

    Seconds after Anthony Knockaert had shot straight at Robert Green, Glenn Murray streaks away from the Leeds defence but puts his angled left-footed effort wide of the post.

    Chris Wood could end the season scoring against 22 of the other 23 Championship teams in the league this season.

    QPR are the only side to have prevented the New Zealand international from finding the net in either of their fixtures against Leeds this term.

  19. Irvine upbeat about Norwich play-off bid

    FT: Norwich City 2-0 Barnsley

    Norwich caretaker manager Alan Irvine says his side can still challenge for the play-offs after the the 2-0 win over Barnsley put them within five points of the play-offs.

    "I was asked to take charge for two games and I have done that," said Irvine, who has ruled himself out of the full-time role.

    "If that is to be my last game in charge it was a good way to finish - and the win certainly makes it interesting as far as the play-offs are concerned.

    "Any side who puts a run together now can quickly climb the table, whether it's at the top or the bottom, and I think this group of players has got the ability to do just that."
