  6. Post update

    The final whistles have now blown across all our games in the EFL.

    Let's take a look at the headlines in Leagues One and Two....


    Preston 0-0 Nottingham Forest

    Hounours even at Deepdale in a game which both sides would probably be happy to take a point from.

    Forest did have the ball in the net twice as Lewis Grabbon and Joe Lolley both had efforts ruled out.

    Preston move up into eleventh after today's draw while Forest switch places with Birmingham to move into eighth in the Championship.

  8. GOAL: Lincoln 2-2 Stevenage

    Ilias Chair (90+4 mins)

    What a comebacke from Stevenage!

    Ilias Chair with a great finish outside the box into the top right of the corner.

    League Two leaders Lincoln are on course for their fourth draw in a row.


    Aston Villa 0-2 West Brom

    West Brom celebrate

    The bragging rights go to West Brom whose first half double sends them on their way to three points against Aston Villa.

    Darren Moore's side keep pace with their promotion rivals at the top while Villa remain 10th.


    Bolton 0-4 Norwich

    Not even a saved penalty could spoil an otherwise perfect day for Norwich as they dismantle Bolton.

    The Canaries go top of the Championship courtesy of the victory, which saw Teemu Pukki score twice and bring up his tally to 23 in the league this season.

    Bolton meanwhile never looked likely of repeating their win against Birmingham in midweek and are three points adrift in 23rd.


    Ipswich Town 1-1 Stoke City

    Ipswich may be cut adrift at the bottom of the Championship but they refuse to throw in the towel.

    For the second game running they've come from behind to grab a point at home - but you suspect that won't be enough to keep them in the division.

  12. GOAL: Ipswich Town 1-1 Stoke City

    Will Keane (90+1 mins)

    Will Keane celebrates

    Well, if Stoke were looking to hold on, it hasn't worked!

    Alan Judge swings a corner into the box and Will Keane heads into the corner of the net.

  13. Morecambe lead Port Vale

    League Two

    Morecambe are a goal up against Port Vale in the big game at the wrong end of the League Two table.

    Bury are leading Exeter 1-0 and could move into second after Mansfield loss against Notts County earlier today.

    League leaders Lincoln City are 2-1 against Stevenage and MK Dons lead Carlisle 3-2.


    Sheff Utd 4-0 Reading

    Sheffield United coast their way to victory with a 4-0 thumping of Reading, including two Gary Madine goals.

    Chris Wilder's side move up to second with Leeds not playing this weekend.

    Reading, meanwhile, remain outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

  16. Post update

    Ipswich Town 0-1 Stoke City

    Stoke make their final change, bringing on Ryan Shawcross for Tom Ince.

    Do you think they're happy just to try to see this one out?

  17. Three goals at home for Coventry?

    League One

    Coventry have not scored three goals at home all season but they have today as they lead Walsall 3-0.

    Meanwhile, Peterbrough lead Oxford 1-0 through Ivan Toney's goal, Barnsley are two up against Wycombe at Oakwell and Shrewsbury and Burton are still level at 1-1.

  18. Post update

    Sheff Utd 4-0 Reading

    A rare chance for Reading in this game.

    Lewis Baker fires from the edge of the box towards the top corner, but Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson makes a terrific diving save.

  19. Post update

    Sheff Utd 4-0 Reading

    Sheffield United's Scott Hogan is denied a goal on his debut by Reading goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
