  1. Rowett rocking?

    FT: Stoke 0-3 Wigan

    Gary Rowett

    Well, what a night that was.

    No doubt where the biggest story of the night came though. Stoke City remain winless after four Championship games and their 3-0 capitulation at home to Wigan leaves them in the relegation zone.

    The Potters host Hull City on Saturday and Gary Rowett needs a big response from his charges.

    We'll be back on Friday with live text coverage of second-placed Middlesbrough against seventh-placed West Brom.

    Good night and thanks for your company.

  2. Leeds remain top


    Here's what's tonight's results have done to the top of the Championship.

    Leeds are still top, as Bolton join the Whites and Boro on 10 points.

    Villa and Brentford remain unbeaten after Jonathan Kodjia's late goal meant the two sides drew 2-2 at Villa Park.

    Championship table

    At the other end, it is rather grim reading for fans of several clubs.

    The bottom five are all yet to record their first win.

    Only QPR remain pointless in the Championship this season.

  3. Bolton go third, Stoke struggles continue

    Championship headlines

    In case you missed anything in all the madness, here are the headlines from tonight's Championship action;

    • Bolton go third in the table with a 1-0 win over Birmingham
    • A last-gasp equaliser gives Aston Villa a draw at home to unbeaten Brentford

  4. Big wins for Fleetwood and Sunderland

    League One update

    It was goal bonanza at both Priestfield and Glanford Park as Sunderland and Fleetwood hit top form, leaving Gillingham and Scunthorpe in misery.

    Fleetwood ran riot at Scunthorpe, leading 4-0 at the break thanks to two goals apiece for Ched Evans and Wes Burns.

    Ashley Hunter added to their tally in the second half to give Cod Army boss Joey Barton his biggest win in management, by some way.

    At Priestfield, Sunderland left with a 4-1 victory and their unbeaten start intact.

    Tom Eaves gave the hosts an early lead but goals from Chris Maguire, George Honeyman, Max Power and Josh Maja gave the Black Cats a resounding win.


    Stoke 0-3 Wigan

    Jack Butland

    A fourth game without a win for Stoke to start life back in the Championship,

    But it was a fine performance by Wigan, as Will Grigg scored twice either side of Gavin Massey's strike.

    Ashley Williams was sent off for the Potters late on.


    Bolton 1-0 Birmingham

    Bolton Wanderers are up to third in the Championship.

    It's four games and 10 points for Phil Parkinson's men thanks to Will Buckley's goal.

    Birmingham had so many chances tonight but for the second successive game they fail to score and they remain winless this campaign.

  7. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Birmingham

    Birmingham are having a real go here.

    Blues were on top for much of this match before Will Buckley's goal.

    Kristian Pedersen forces a good save from Bolton goalkeeper Ben Alnwick.

  8. Post update

    Stoke 0-3 Wigan

    Josh Windass has a chance for a fourth for Wigan after beating the Stoke offside trap, but is eventually crowded out and his effort goes out for a corner.

  9. Post update

    Stoke 0-3 Wigan

    Less than five minutes remain at Stoke.

    The stands are emptying of home fans, but the Wigan supporters are enjoying every pass as their side close the game out against 10 men.

  10. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Birmingham

    Into the last few minutes and Bolton are closing in on a third win in four league games.

    What a start to the season this could be for Phil Parkinson's men.


    Sheff Wed 2-1 Millwall

    A first win of the league season for the Owls, a first defeat for Millwall.

    Goals from Barry Bannan and Tom Lees put the hosts 2-0 up before Ryan Tunnicliffe pulled one back.

    Wednesday had some defending to do at the end, but held on for a vital three points.

  12. RED CARD Ashley Williams (Stoke)

    Stoke 0-3 Wigan

    View more on twitter

    What a miserable night for Stoke.

    On-loan Everton defender Ashley Williams is sent off for a second bookable offence and Potters boss Gary Rowett must just want this night to end.


    Aston Villa 2-2 Brentford

    Villa preserve their unbeaten record right, and deny Brentford their third win of the season.

    The Bees twice took the lead through Neal Maupay, but Jonathan Kodjia hit back for Villa.

    An entertaining encounter at Villa Park.

  14. GOAL: Aston Villa 2-2 Brentford

    Jonathan Kodjia (90+5 mins)

    Incredible! Right at the death Villa have the equaliser!

    Ahmed Elmohamady's ball in from the right flicks off a Brentford head and sails across the box.

    But Jonathan Kodjia has got ahead of Henrik Dalsgaard and sends a firm header over Bees keeper Dan Bentley.

    He runs away to celebrate in front of the Holte End.


    Blackburn 2-2 Reading

    A game of two halves.

    Reading led 2-0 at the break thanks to a Jon Dadi Bodvarsson double but two Charlie Mulgrew penalties give Blackburn a point to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

    Reading remain without a win and this one will sting.

  16. Post update

    Sheff Wed 2-1 Millwall

    A crucial double block right at the end to preserve the Wednesday lead!

    First James Meredith's overhead kick is blocked by a defender on the line and then the follow-up from Lee Gregory is saved by Cameron Dawson.


    Norwich 2-0 Preston

    Norwich have their first league win of the season thanks to late goals from Teemu Pukki and Alexander Tettey.

    The visitors nearly took the lead when Callum Robinson fired against the crossbar when the game was goalless.

  18. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-2 Brentford

    Bees keeper Dan Bentley gathers a deep cross from the right on his goal line.

    Two and a half minutes left for the visitors to survive.

  19. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Birmingham

    Bolton, who care set to go level on points with league leaders Leeds, nearly have a second.

    Will Buckley fires a bouncing ball just over the bar.

  20. Post update

    Sheff Wed 2-1 Millwall

    Another chance for Wednesday from a wall-worked corner, but Atdhe Nuhiu can't turn it in at the back post as he stretches to get on the end of a cross.
