  1. Goodbye

    Sheffield Wednesday fan cheering

    Today was a day in which Yorkshire's sleeping giants flexed their muscles in the Championship, with Leeds, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday all taking three points to give their seasons a little boost.

    Leeds in particular showed their 2017-18 pedigree with a 5-0 crushing of Burton Albion, while the Steel City duo showed their class to overcome Sunderland and Forest respectively.

    That said, it's Cardiff City who top the Championship after their draw with Fulham, but even they are managed by a man who exudes the white rose grit in Neil Warnock.

    Anyway, we go again on BBC Sport's EFL coverage on Tuesday.

    Until then, good night and have a great rest of the weekend.

  2. Reaction: Hasselbaink's 'very good start'

    League One full-time: Northampton 1-0 Doncaster

    Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

    After his side's 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers in his first match in charge, new Northampton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told BBC Radio Northampton:

    "The boys worked very hard. The application was magnificent.

    "You look at your team, how they can suffer and how they are willing to suffer, and we suffered today.

    "That was always going to be the case because we have only been together for a few days, and the confidence is low.

    "They put their bodies on the line. I must say, it is a very good start."

  3. 'It's nice to get a goal'

    FT: Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Quote Message: It's good to be back. I've done a lot of hard work behind the scenes to get back fit and today has gone well for me and the team. I always seem to be in the right place at the right time, so it's nice to get a goal. from Kieran Lee Sheffield Wednesday goalscorer on Sky Sports

  4. 'We rode our luck a bit'

    FT: Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Quote Message: We've always been in games, but we've maybe not seen them out as well as we could've done. We rode our luck a bit tonight but I thought we deserved the win. from Jack Hunt Sheffield Wednesday full-back on Sky Sports

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Big win and a strong performance from Sheffield Wednesday gives them a second league win of the season and their first on home turf.

    Goals from Gary Hooper, Steven Fletcher and Kieran Lee were enough to settle it, with Ben Osborn in reply.

    Wednesday looked good throughout, Forest showed flashes. Tonight was a perfect exhibition of where these two teams are in terms of their journey back to success.

  6. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Not sure how many Forest fans are still about to see Andreas Bouchalakis have a real go at testing Keiren Westwood's goal there. It was some hit. Off-target though.

    Wednesday have been as tasty as Hendo's relish at times here.

  7. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Jack Hobbs skies a header over the bar. Sums up Forest's afternoon, barring that slick move from Barrie McKay and Ben Osborn for the goal.

    Wednesday aren't finished yet, Barry Bannan still prompting and probing for the Owls.

  8. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Keiren Westwood claims a cross and shuts down fading Forest hopes.

    It'll be Wednesday's second win of the season, first at home and a big lift against a side that started the season brightly.

    Three added minutes.

  9. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Forest get within sight of the Wednesday goal, and win a corner.

    The set-piece is cleared easily, as is the second attempt, and Daryl Murphy's airshot is an embarrassing end to the move.

    Plenty of chuckles among the Wednesday support as expected.

  10. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    There's something quite beautiful about seeing a team so well drilled defending as a unit, Sheffield Wednesday. So consistent in their shape.

    It's a bit like synchronised swimming, all in harmony.

    Meanwhile it took a last ditch effort to stop Jacob Butterfield just a moment ago, he wanted too much time and was robbed.

  11. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Wednesday have taken the sting out of this game now, and even lively Barrie McKay's touch lets him down as Forest run aground.

    It's all a bit one-paced.

  12. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Forest frustrations starting to tell, as Joe Worrall gives away a sloppy free-kick 35 yards out.

    Wednesday send on Jordan Rhodes for Gary Hooper. All three of their goalscorers are off now, enjoying a nice rest.

    Six defeats on the bounce against the Owls for Forest here it would seem...

  13. Post update

    Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    George Boyd is on for Sheffield Wednesday by the way, replacing Steven Fletcher.

    Boyd of course was once the subject of a broken down transfer to Forest from Peterborough after an "inconclusive eye test".

    Quite a shambolic period at Forest that...

    Jacob Butterfield comes on for his debut for Wednesday, he won't be popular with the away support as a Derby player. He replaces Kieran Lee, after his goal.

  14. GOAL - Sheff Wed 3-1 Nott'm Forest

    Kieran Lee

    Kieran Lee

    Wednesday get the third and are probably out of sight now, thanks to the sharp as a tack Kieran Lee.

    The ball was worked wide for Jack Hunt and when his cross wasn't cleared, Lee hooked the ball into the Forest net from close range.

    Big celebrations around Hillsborough. The winless home run should end tonight...

  15. Post update

    Sheff Wed 2-1 Nott'm Forest

    What will Wednesday's approach be now? The fans will want them to go for the jugular but there may be some caution as Forest have to come out and press now.

    Daryl Murphy latched onto a Barrie McKay and headed for goal but the flag was up. Disciplined line by the Owls defence.

  16. GOAL - Sheff Wed 2-1 Nott'm Forest

    Steven Fletcher

    That will settle some nerves! Steven Fletcher makes the sharpest of runs to get between Joe Worrall and Tendayi Darikwa and power in the header from a corner by Ross Wallace.

    Darikwa had headed out from under Fletcher a moment before.

    Forest ring the changes in response. Hillsborough is up and running.

    Steven Fletcher
  17. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-1 Nott'm Forest

    Tom Lees got up highest to head at goal from a swirling corner but the save is a simple one for Jordan Smith.

    Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal just watches on a little tentatively at the moment. Over the hour mark we go.

  18. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-1 Nott'm Forest

    Forest get in behind again, Ben Osborn slipped Jason Cummings in but the ball is hacked away from danger by Wednesday's defence.

    The home side are struggling to make the ball stick at the other end, where Steven Fletcher is being well marshalled.

    They have a free-kick in a decent position now though after Kieran Lee is poleaxed by Liam Bridcutt.

  19. Johnson pleased with Flint selection dilemma

    FT: Reading 0-1 Bristol City

    Aden Flint

    Earlier, Bristol City won at Reading thanks to Aden Flint's goal on the defender's return to the Robins' side after the club rejected various bids for him during the transfer window.

    Discussing whether Flint can now keep his place, with five centre-backs competing for two places, head coach Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Bristol:

    "I've got a dilemma now, because he was very good, and Nathan Baker was good, but Bailey Wright has also been very good - we sort of rested him today.

    "I called Flinty before the game and said I'm going to play you in this one but it's Bailey's place to come back to. So we've got selection dilemmas, but good ones.

    "We deserved [to win today], just through our ability to keep going and to press. Our defence stood strong."

  20. Post update

    Sheff Wed 1-1 Nott'm Forest

    Harmless free-kick from Forest defender Danny Fox is mopped up by goalkeeper Keiren Westwood in the Wednesday box.

    Barrie McKay then tries to put Forest in behind with a slide rule pass but Wednesday mop up/
