  1. That's all folks...

    Jack Grealish

    ... For now anyway.

    Norwich end the day on top of the Championship after a 3-1 win at Millwall, while Aston Villa thrashed Derby 4-0, with four first half goals.

    In League One Luton continued their superb recent form to stay top of the table and Portsmouth thumped beleaguered Bradford City 5-1 for their first league win since 1 January.

    Meanwhile in League Two, leaders Lincoln fought back from a goal down to beat Forest Green 2-1.

    We'll be back with more live coverage of the EFL on Monday evening with Sheffield Wednesday v Sheffield United.

    Thanks for your company today and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Best of enemies

    Steve Bruce

    That's your lot for EFL action today but there's a rather large game on the horizon.

    Sheffield Wednesday host Steel City rivals Sheffield United on Monday, with the Blades needing a win to go back up to second in the Championship.

    Steve Bruce's men still have an outside chance of a play-off spot, but realistically, they need to win on Monday to keep those hopes alive.

    We'll bring you live text coverage of that huge clash from 19:30 GMT.

  3. How it stands at the bottom

    Bottom six

    At the other end of the second-tier table, Rotherham and Reading's dramatic wins move them both within a point of 20th-placed Millwall.

    But Ipswich and 23rd-placed Bolton both lost again and they look doomed, especially the Tractor Boys.

  4. Canaries back on top

    Top six

    Here's confirmation of Norwich's return to the top of the Championship table, on a day when nobody else in the top nine won.

  5. League Two full-time headlines

    • Lincoln City come from behind to beat Forest Green Rovers, with John Akinde scoring twice.
    • Bury beat Sol Campbell's Macclesfield Town 3-0, while Mansfield Town withstand a Cheltenham Town comeback to win 4-2 and MK Dons edge out Crawley.
    • Yeovil Town earn a brilliant 3-2 win against Morecambe, while Cambridge United also win.
  6. League One full-time headlines

    • Danny Hylton ends his long run without a goal as League One leaders Luton Town edge to victory at home to Rochdale.
    • Portsmouth win in the league for the first time since 1 January, thrashing Bradford 5-1, while Sunderland and Barnsley also record victories.
    • Bristol Rovers are the big winners at the bottom, thrashing Blackpool thanks to Jonson Clarke-Harris' hat-trick.
  7. Championship full-time headlines

    Norwich City

    It's been another fascinating afternoon in the second tier. Here are the headlines...

    • Norwich City are back at the top of the table after winning at Millwall
    • Aston Villa hit four past poor Derby County, with Jack Grealish scoring on his return to the team, while Stoke City beat play-off-chasing Nottingham Forest.
    • Reading and Rotherham United both earn valuable wins in their battles to avoid the drop.

    Headlines coming right up...


    Brentford 3-0 QPR

    Brentford take the bragging rights from this west London derby.

    Neal Maupay got them off and running with a penalty and Said Benrahma and Sergi Canos made the points safe.


    Swansea 2-0 Bolton

    Bolton remain deep in relegation trouble.


    Ipswich 1-2 Reading

    Could that be that for Ipswich?

    They equalised against Reading with just seven minutes to play but a late Mo Barrow goal means they are now 12 points behind the Royals with 11 games to play.

  12. GOAL: Swansea 2-0 Bolton

    Bersant Celina (90+2 mins)

    Game, set and match for Swansea against nine-man Bolton, as Bersant Celina doubles their lead on the counter.


    Rotherham 3-2 Blackburn

    The Millers claim a big win in their bid to avoid the drop, after a cracking game!

  14. GOAL: Brentford 3-0 QPR

    Sergi Canos (90+5 mins)


    Icing meet cake.

    Sergi Canos finishes off a long passing move to give Brentford three goals to go with their three points.


    Preston 1-1 Bristol City

    Bristol City avoid a third straight league defeat thanks to Famara Diedhiou's second-half equaliser.

    Preston are now nine games unbeaten and still in the play-off mix.


    Millwall 1-3 Norwich

    Norwich respond perfectly to Leeds' thumping win over West Brom last night to go back to the top of the table.

    Second half goals from Christoph Zimmerman and Teemu Pukki give the Canaries all three points.


    Wigan 0-0 Middlesbrough

    It's a bore draw but it's a very valuable one for Wigan.

    Boro lose further ground on the top two.


    Hull 2-0 Birmingham

    A Jarrod Bowen double gives Hull City a victory over Birmingham as the Tigers move to four points off the play-off spots.

  19. GOAL: Rotherham 3-2 Blackburn

    Charlie Mulgrew, pen (90+4 mins)

    From the penalty spot, Charlie Mulgrew has his 10th goal of the season, but it looks like it'll be too little, too late for Blackburn.


    Aston Villa 4-0 Derby

    Four first half goals are enough for Aston Villa against Derby.

    A double from Conor Hourihane, a tap in from Tammy Abraham and a stunning volley from Jack Grealish give Villa first win in six and keep their very faint play-off hopes alive.
