  1. Farewell

    And that my friends is where this evening's EFL live text draws to a close.

    We'll be back on Friday as Cardiff host Wolves. Can't wait.

    Until then, have a good week!

  2. Relegation picture taking shape

    That victory for Birmingham at Bolton moves Blues five points clear of relegation.

    It's looking increasingly bleak for Sunderland and Burton. Barnsley are also in the mire after events at the Macron.

    It's going to be a thrilling end to the season, that's for sure.

    Championship bottom six
  3. Wolves need eight points

    The Championship leaders still need three wins to guarantee promotion after tonight's 2-2 draw with Hull.

    Or a couple of victories and two draws. Eight points will do it.

    Fulham and Aston Villa both keep the pressure on Cardiff for that final automatic promotion spot.

  4. Post update

    Let's have a look at how tonight's results have affected things at the top and bottom of the Championship...


    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    HUGE win for Birmingham City.

    They're now five points clear of the relegation zone, the same as Bolton.

    Lukas Jutkiewicz's first-half strike was the difference as Blues earned a third league win on the bounce under Garry Monk.

    They also had to play the last 25 minutes with 10 men after Che Adams was sent off.

    Bolton were pretty poor.

  6. Post update

    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    Birmingham adopt a 1-10-0-0 formation for the final minute or so.

    Bolton are desperate for an equaliser but have lacked quality tonight.

    Goalkeeper Ben Alnwick comes up for a corner but the ball goes behind harmlessly.

  7. Post update

    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    FIVE MINUTES added time.

    Hearts in mouths stuff for Blues' huge contingent of away fans.

    Hope for Bolton.

  8. Post update

    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    Blues have everyone behind the ball now.

    They're into the final minute. How much stoppage time?

  9. Shot-shy Bolton

    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    Bolton are piling forward in search of an equaliser, but 10-man Blues are holding firm so far.

    Still no shots on target for Wanderers.


    Fulham 2-0 Leeds


    One goal in either half from Kevin McDonald and then Aleksandar Mitrovic help Fulham close the gap on Cardiff in second to five points.

    Fulham now 18 games unbeaten.


    Bury 0-2 Rochdale

    All over in League One in the Greater Manchester derby.

    Looks like Bury's race is run in the division for this season while Rochdale's survival hopes live on.

    FT: Aston Villa 3-0 Readng

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Villa Park


    Different mood in Birmingham B6 now that vibrant Villa have rediscovered the way to goal again.

    Reward for Steve Bruce too, as their three goals have all been scored by players he brought back in tonight.

    Although, while Birkir Bjarnason and Conor Hourihane both came up with classy finishes, Scott Hogan's was really a gift from former Sunderland keeper Vito Mannone, who got himself in a right tangle!


    Wolves 2-2 Hull

    All over at Molineux. The Championship leaders are held by Hull.

    Their promotion party will have to wait.

    Wolves fans
  14. Post update

    Fulham 2-0 Leeds

    Into added time at Craven Cottage - five minutes of it.

    Fulham look like they're set to keep on rolling on.

  15. Post update

    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    Bolton have another penalty shout after Adam Le Fondre's flick hits a Blues defender.

    Was that handball?

    15 minutes to go.


    Aston Villa 3-0 Reading

    All done and dusted at Villa Park.

    To be fair - it was over as a contest a minute into the second half.

    Villa back on song, Reading still under pressure just above the relegation zone.

  17. Post update

    Wolves 2-2 Hull

    Time for a winner?

    There are a couple of minutes to go plus stoppage time in the Black Country.

  18. GOAL: Wolves 2-2 Hull

    Oskar Buur (83 mins)

    Drama at Molineux! It's the debutant who levels for Wolves.

    Oskar Buur gets on the end of Barry Douglas' cross from the left and heads into the corner.


    Bolton 0-1 Birmingham

    Che Adams off

    Che Adams is given his marching orders for Blues.

    The forward crunches into Sammy Ameobi on the edge of his own area and is shown a straight red card.

    Birmingham will have to see out the final 20 or so minutes with 10 men.

  20. Post update

    Fulham 2-0 Leeds

    Big miss for Leeds to claw back into this one.

    Substitute Jay-Roy Grot just has to nod the ball on target as he's found unmarked from a cross but somehow he can't keep his header under the crossbar with 10 minutes to go.
