  1. Signing off


    Jack Harrison, Hedler Costa and Kalvin Phillips celebrate a goal for Leeds United

    That's it for our coverage of today's Championship action.

    Leeds United went back to the top of the table, while there were also big wins for Bristol City and Brentford.

    It was also a happy afternoon for Barnsley, who tasted victory for the first time in 18 league games.

    We'll see if West Brom can regain top spot from Leeds on Monday night, but until then do remember you can keep up to date with all the Premier League and FA Cup second round action via the BBC Sport website.

  2. Tykes close gap at bottom

    How it stands

    It's pretty much as you were at the bottom as five off the bottom six all suffered defeat.

    Barnsley are the exception, as the Tykes' first win since the opening day of the season closes the gap to second-bottom Stoke City.

    The Oakwell outfit are still five points from safety, but Middlesbrough and Luton will be looking over their shoulders after heavy defeats this afternoon.

  6. Macclesfield and Bradford share points

    It's a first win for Barnsley boss Gerhard Struber in his first game in charge at Oakwell.

    Goals from Alex Mowatt and Mike-Steven Bahre gave the Tykes a two goal lead before Keane Lewis-Potter got one back for Hull but Conor Chaplin sealed the win for the home side late on.

    Barnsley are now five points from safety but remain bottom of the Championship.


    Bristol City 5-2 Huddersfield

    Bristol City head into the top six after hitting Huddersfield for five at Ashton gate.

    A torrid afternoon for Luton comes to an end.

    Brentford were 5-0 up at the break before Josh Dasilva completed his hat-trick in the second half.

    The Hatters, meanwhile, have lost five of their past seven and their goal difference has taken a massive hit.

    Yes, it's SEVEN.

    And it's a nice gesture from regular penalty taker Said Benrahma, who was brought down by Dan Potts.

    Benrahma already scored one spot-kick today so gives the ball to Josh Dasilva and allows the midfielder to smash in and complete his hat-trick.

  18. Post update
