    A massive three points for Middlesbrough.

    George Saville's goal within 52 second gives Boro victory against Charlton, who rarely threatened the hosts.

  17. RED CARD

    Luton 1-1 Wigan

    Wigan have Chey Dunkley sent off for a second yellow card and they will have to see this game out with just 10 men.


    Blackburn 1-0 Derby


    Adam Armstrong's goal is the difference as Blackburn beat Derby at Ewood Park.


    Hull 2-1 Stoke

    Jarrod Bowen's second-half double sees Hull come from behind to beat Stoke at the KCOM Stadium.

  20. GOAL: Reading 1-3 Birmingham

    Alvaro Gimenez (88 mins)

    That'll be that for Blues.
