  1. So long, farewell

    Villa celebrate

    Well, well. What a night of drama.

    We'll be back later this week after all the twists and turns of the January transfer window are done with more live EFL action for you.

    Bolton v Bristol City on Friday night in the Championship will be our next offering.

    Until then, thanks for being with us...

  2. 'They really penned us in at times'

    FT: Sheffield United 0-1 Aston Villa

    Quote Message: It was a typical Robert Snodgrass goal. It was a lot better in the second half, but credit to Sheffield United, they really penned us in at times. You've got to believe there's always a goal in it. from Colin Calderwood Aston Villa assistant manager on Sky Sports

  3. How it stands

    So what have those Championship results done to the league table this evening?

    Here's a look at the top six and the bottom six....

    Champ top

    Villa's fifth successive victory closes the gap on Derby in second to a point.

    Their win at Sheffield United means Fulham stay in the play-off places.

    Champ bottom

    Potentially damaging defeats for both Burton and Sunderland tonight.

    Fair to say, pretty tight at the bottom now for all of those clubs.

  4. 'It was a decent game'

    FT: Sheffield United 0-1 Aston Villa

    Quote Message: I think we've played well, well enough to get a result, but we're talking top-end Championship football here. Their goalkeeper has made more saves than our goalkeeper and if those go in it might be a different story. It was a decent game of football, both teams went at it. from Chris Wilder Sheffield United manager on Sky Sports

  7. Wycombe endure anxious wait

    League Two latest

    Wondering where those full-time scores in League Two are?

    Well, we're still waiting for one result, as Luton and Wycombe are playing out nine minutes' of added time at the end of the second half.

    Wanderers still have about four minutes left to hold onto their 3-2 lead.

  8. FULL-TIME

    Hull City 0-0 Leeds United

    No way through for Hull City and Leeds United, who share a goalless draw.

  9. 'It was a team performance'

    FT: Sheffield United 0-1 Aston Villa

    Snodgrass
    Quote Message: It was a very tough game. I think Sheffield United are where they are for a reason - they're a very good side. I'm delighted I got the goal, but I'm delighted for the boys because they worked so hard. As a winger you need to try to score goals and get assists, but as I say it's been a team performance. from Robert Snodgrass Aston Villa goalscorer on Sky Sports

  10. FULL-TIME

    Birmingham City 3-1 Sunderland

    A sorry night for Sunderland but a big three points for Birmingham in the battle of the two sides who started the night inside the bottom three.

    Blues were in control for most of it before Sunderland bagged a late consolation.

  11. INJURY TIME

    Hull City 0-0 Leeds United

    We're into five minutes of time added on in the game between Hull and Leeds. A late goal, anyone?

  12. FULL-TIME

    Burton Albion 1-3 Reading

    Jaap Stam will be a very relieved man to have got through this one with the three points.

    Reading win for the first league match in nine while Burton remain stuck at the bottom of the pile.

  13. FULL-TIME

    Millwall 0-0 Derby County

    No goals in this one, but no shortage of chances or effort from both sides.

    Derby had a late effort ruled out for offside from Ikechi Anya while Scott Carson denied Millwall on more than one occasion.

  14. INJURY TIME

    Millwall 0-0 Derby County

    Three minutes being added on at the end of the 90 in south London.

  15. FULL-TIME

    Nottingham Forest 0-3 Preston

    They were without star striker Jordan Hugill, but Preston scored three times to win convincingly at Nottingham Forest.

  16. FULL-TIME

    Sheffield United 0-1 Aston Villa

    No late equaliser for the Blades and Aston Villa leave it late to claim a fifth win in a row and maintain their march towards the automatic promotion places.

    Robert Snodgrass wins in with a cracker for Steve Bruce's men.

  17. INJURY TIME

    Birmingham City 3-1 Sunderland

    Five additional minutes at St Andrew's. Sunderland still need a miracle to steal a point.

    Birmingham v Sunderland
  18. FULL-TIME

    Middlesbrough 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

    It's all over at the Riverside and it's goalless.

  19. INJURY TIME

    Sheffield United 0-1 Aston Villa

    Four minutes being added on at Bramall Lane. Can Sheffield United grab a late leveller?

  20. Sheffield United 0-1 Aston Villa

    Robert Snodgrass (90 mins)

    My word. Late drama at Bramall Lane!

    Aston Villa look to have snatched the win after withstanding an absolute barrage from Sheffield United.

    Robert Snodgrass pops up in the last minute of normal time with a stunning left-footed curling effort from the edge of the box.

    Gutting for the Blades.
