  1. That's it folks!



    We have some bad news to report. The EFL party is over for night.

    Reading were the big winners of the evening, with Veljko Paunovic's men extending their unbeaten start and their lead at the top of the Championship.

    There was plenty of drama in League One and League Two as well, with Barrow recording their first win since their promotion from the National League.

    There are six more Championship games to come tomorrow evening, including a juicy top-six clash between Bournemouth and Bristol City.

    Thanks for your company this evening - see you again next time.

  2. Royals open up gap

    How it stands

    Here's what this evening's results have done to the top of the Championship...

    Championship top six

    I don't think even the most ardent Reading fan would have expected their side to be SEVEN points clear after eight matches but... here we are.

    Swansea move up to second with a 2-0 win over Stoke.

    Bristol City have the chance to go back up to second spot when they visit sixth-placed Bournemouth tomorrow, but a win for the hosts will see them take that spot instead.

  6. Post update

    Barry Fry

    More than three hours after our first English Football League game of the evening kicked off, we've finally reached full-time in every one of the 28 fixtures across the three divisions.

    Your Championship, League One and League Two headlines are on the way next...


    Middlesbrough 2-0 Coventry

    Middlesbrough stretch their unbeaten run to seven matches thanks to late goals from Britt Assombalonga and Djed Spence.


    Wycombe 1-1 Watford

    Wycombe pick up their first ever Championship point after a run of seven straight defeats.

    It's back-to-back draws for Watford who are now unbeaten in their last four games.


    Blackburn 2-4 Reading

    Reading are seven points clear at the top of the Championship!

    The Royals went in front after 12 seconds and basically didn't look back thereafter.

    Imperious early season form.

  10. CLOSE!

    Wycombe 1-1 Watford

    Watford almost with the winner.

    Glenn Murray finds space in the area and gets the shot off but it goes wide.


    Brentford 1-1 Norwich

    A point apiece after Kenny McLean's deflected late leveller denies the hosts.

  12. GOAL: Middlesbrough 2-0 Coventry

    Djed Spence (90+5 mins)

    That'll be that then.

    Coventry are pushing for a leveller but the hosts break and Djed Spence does well to to beat Marko Marosi in the Sky Blues goal and finish.


    Wycombe 1-1 Watford

    Wycombe thought they got a winner as another Joe Jacobson swings into the net but the referee has spotted a foul on Ben Foster by Alex Samuel.

    That was a big call, looked harsh.


    Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    The Swans go up to second thanks to goals from Jay Fulton and Kasey Palmer.


    Wycombe 1-1 Watford

    Double change for Wycombe.

    Daryl Horgan and Adebayo Akinfenwa make way for Uche Ikpeazu and Fred Onyedinma.

    Akinfenwa making his first start of the season has put in a great shift but will feel he should have scored with that great chance in the first half.

  16. GOAL: Brentford 1-1 Norwich

    Kenny McLean (87 mins)

    Norwich celebrate

    Late leveller for the visitors!

    There's more than a little bit of luck to it as Kenny McLean's effort from 20 yards takes a huge deflection and gives David Raya no chance.

  17. Post update

    Wycombe 1-1 Watford

    Route one stuff from the home side.

    From a goal kick, Adebayo Akinfenwa flicks it to Scott Kashket who races away into the box and gets a shot off from the left but Ben Foster keeps him out with his leg.

    The Watford keeper has been excellent this evening.

  18. GOAL: Swansea 2-0 Stoke

    Kasey Palmer (87 mins)

    A defensive nightmare for the Potters.

    Jake Bidwell loops a ball up into the Stoke area to nobody in particular but nobody goes to deal with it, it bounces up and Kasey Palmer heads it beyond the onrushing Angus Gunn in the Stoke goal.

    The former Chelsea man takes a heck of a whack for his troubles but looks to be ok.

  19. Post update

    League One update

    Pompey are cruising to a third straight win.

    Marcus Harness nods in a fourth against Northampton.

    That's nine goals in three games for Kenny Jackett's men, who endured a slow start to the season.


    Wycombe 1-1 Watford

    Kiko Femenia breaks into the box and Wycombe keeper Ryan Allsop comes out to meet him but hesitates with the challenge and Femenia is looking for a penalty but it's waved away

    Femenia is booked for dissent.

    It wasn't a penalty.
