  1. Goodbye


    Patrick Bamford

    Right, that's your lot from another thrilling day in the EFL. What a lively start to the season we're enjoying.

    The nights are still light, shirt sleeves still appropriate attire and the season still in its infancy but already a couple of teams are staking their claims to be involved in the big shake-up come May.

    Nothing is won yet of course, but already a few teams are looking over their shoulders... or at least their managers are.

    Anyway, we'll be back tomorrow with Reading and Cardiff finishing off the round of games from 11:45 BST.

    Thanks for joining us today.

  2. League Two full-time headlines

    • Swindon Town fire late against Exeter City through Eoin Doyle as their 1-1 draw puts them first and second in the table respectively.
    • Managerless Macclesfield Town hold off Northampton Town's comeback as Theo Archibald's late winner gives them victory.
    • Bottom side Oldham Athletic slump to a 3-0 defeat by Bradford City as their winless run this season continues.
  3. ...and the losers


    It's the Infamous Five in the Championship who are still waiting for win number one.

    Luton, Middlesbrough, Huddersfield and Stoke are all still winless after three games...

    ...Reading play Cardiff tomorrow, and they can leave that group with three points at the Mad-Stad.

  4. Winners in the Championship


    Just six teams remain without defeat, and there are a few surprises in that pack.

    Millwall under Neil Harris have kicked off the season nicely, winning two and drawing one. It's been resourceful too. Just three goals scored and one conceded.

    Newboys Charlton too, left it late but they have seven points thanks to their draw today. Swansea boss Steve Cooper has made an excellent start to life there as well.

    Leeds and West Brom are slightly less surprising, both were tipped to be in the mix and are doing so early doors. Derby too.

  5. League One full-time headlines

    • Lincoln City thrash Southend United 4-0 and Blackpool beat Oxford United 2-1 as both maintain their 100% starts in League One.
    • Tranmere Rovers put five goals past Bolton without reply, as Wanderers field a starting XI made up mostly of youth players once more.
    • David Wheeler gives Wycombe Wanderers a dramatic 3-2 victory against MK Dons with his 90th-minute winner for the Chairboys.
  6. Championship full-time headlines

    Michael Dawson
    • Leeds United continue their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 victory at 10-man Wigan Athletic, Patrick Bamford scoring either side of half-time.
    • West Bromwich Albion come from 1-0 down to beat Luton Town, while Michael Dawson's first Nottingham Forest goal in 15 years helps them to victory over Birmingham City.
    • Benik Afobe scores his first Bristol City goal as the Robins beat Queens Park Rangers for their first win of 2019-20.
  7. Post update


    Right, let's have a look at how this afternoon unfolded in the Championship, League One, and League Two.

    Breathless fare from the EFL.


    Barnsley 2-2 Charlton

    These two promoted sides delivered a thrilling advert for the Championship, as Charlton needed a late penalty equaliser from Lyle Taylor to keep them unbeaten in 2019-20.

    Barnsley twice led, first from a wonderful volley by Cauley Woodrow, and then again Conor Chaplin shuffling and jinking his way to goal.

    Conor Gallagher and Taylor goals were enough to keep the Addicks alert and alive.

    Oakwell saw a real fine game, it's fair to say.


    Brentford 1-1 Hull

    Brentford v Hull

    Ollie Watkins cancels out Jarrod Bowen's earlier strike to secure Brentford a draw at home to Hull City.


    Swansea 3-2 Preston

    An entertaining affair at the Liberty Stadium sees Swansea come from behind to take all three points against Preston.

    Borja Baston's double helps the hosts to victory after Joe Rafferty had given the visitors an early lead.


    Millwall 1-0 Sheff Wed

    Matt Smith

    Terrific result for Millwall, this.

    Jed Wallace was sent off before half-time but the Lions have held on to beat Sheffield Wednesday, whose 100% start has come to an end.


    Stoke 2-2 Derby

    Honours even in a proper Championship arm-wrestle at the Bet365 Stadium.

    Stoke went behind early to Martyn Waghorn's goal, but turned it round to lead 2-1 thanks to goals from Liam Lindsay and Scott Hogan.

    Waghorn got his second but was unable to find the crucial third, and the points were shared. Cracking game though.


    Luton 1-2 West Brom

    Luton lose at home for the first time since March 2018, as Grady Diangana's terrific double in the second-half turned around a deficit for West Bromwich Albion.

    Harry Cornick's first-half goal had a sold-out Kenliworth Road rocking, and you think if they play like that they'll be okay in the Championship.


    Bristol City 2-0 QPR

    Benik Afobe

    Bristol City have their first win of 2019-20 thanks to a comfortable home win over Queens Park Rangers.


    Wigan 0-2 Leeds

    Two goals from Patrick Bamford steer Leeds to a big win at the DW Stadium, as 10-man Wigan were unable to break through.

    Lee Evans had their best chances, but Bamford showed his class and composure by tucking in two close-rangers. Big win.


    Blackburn 1-0 Middlesbrough

    Danny Graham's penalty against his former club gifts Blackburn all three points against Middlesbrough.

    Not the result Jonathan Woodgate's side will have hoped for but much for Tony Mowbray to be happy about as his Rovers side bag a first league win of the season.

  17. GOAL: Barnsley 2-2 Charlton

    Lyle Taylor (89 mins)

    Charlton get a late leveller!

    Lyle Taylor walks up and prods it past Sami Radlinger with nonchalance and calm.

    Conor Gallagher was brought down late on, two key involvements for him.

    Big equaliser. Share of the points perhaps?

  18. Beesly's late equaliser for Salford

    League Two

    Salford have salvaged something out of their game against Port Vale thanks to Jake Beesly's dramatic late equaliser.

  19. Ipswich, Wycombe and Doncaster strike late

    League One

    Joy for Ipswich fans. Luke Chambers has bagged a 94th-minute equaliser for the Tractor Boys against Peterborough.

    Meanwhile, Wycombe pull off what is surely a late winner against MK Dons courtesy of David Wheeler's 90th-minute strike.

    Not to be outdone, Doncaster go 3-2 up against Fleetwood thanks to Wes Burns' 91st-minute own goal.


    Nott'm Forest 3-0 Birmingham

    Comfortable win in the end for Nottingham Forest, thanks to goals from Joe Lolley, Lewis Grabban and Michael Dawson. Winning ways for Sabri Lamouchi at the City Ground.

    First defeat in 10 for the Blues. Well-beaten today.
