  1. Farewell for now


    A long day, but a good day.

    It's been goals galore across the English Football League and the football season is well and truly under way.

    We're just about done here after a bumper and entertaining day across the Championship, League One and League Two.

    Now, we could meet again tomorrow when Coventry take on Rotherham. However, that game is subject to a pitch inspection at the CBS Arena this evening. Not something you expect to hear in August and in the midst of a good spell of weather!

    But for now though, thank you for joining us.

    Kevin Gallacher

    Former Blackburn striker on BBC Radio Lancashire

    Tim Dellor

    BBC Berkshire sport editor

    Reading celebrate

    A cracking match! The Reading fans are out of their seats. Some of Reading's young players have really stood up and performed today.


    QPR 3-2 Middlesbrough

    QPR are made to sweat by Middlesbrough but eventually get the three points.

    Rangers were 3-0 up thanks to Chris Willock, Jimmy Dunne and Lyndon Dykes gave them a comfortable cushion.

    But Matt Crooks and Marcus Forss goals had the home fans sitting a little edgily until the full-time whistle.


    Preston 0-0 Hull

    Goalless but no less entertaining.

    Despite a barrage of pressure from Preston, Hull hold on for a point at Deepdale.


    Reading 2-1 Cardiff

    Reading come from behind to beat Cardiff, after Callum O'Dowda's goal is cancelled out by strikes by Shane Long and Tom Ince.


    Sheff Utd 2-0 Millwall

    Sheff Utd boss Paul Heckingbottom

    Back to winning ways for Sheffield United, as goals from Ilian Ndiaye and Sander Berge are enough to see off Millwall.

    The Lions battled hard in the second-half, but to no avail.


    Bristol City 2-3 Sunderland

    Ellis Simms delivers immediate goods for Sunderland, with a double to help overcome Bristol City in a see-sawing affair.

    Ross Stewart scored the winner after goals from Andi Weimann and Chris Martin replied for Bristol City.


    Burnley 1-1 Luton

    Burnley come back to rescue a point against Luton.

    Vincent Kompany's side seal a point courtesy of Josh Brownhill's leveller after Dan Potts had sent the Hatters into an early lead.


    Stoke 2-0 Blackpool

    Harry Clarke scores for Stoke

    Harry Clarke and Jacob Brown's goals either side of half-time give Stoke the victory against Blackpool.


    Swansea 0-3 Blackburn

    Blackburn coast to victory against an off-the-pace Swansea.

    Sam Szmodics, on his debut, as well as goals from Ben Brereton-Diaz and Lewis Travis wraps up a thumping three points.

  16. RED CARD

    QPR 3-2 Middlesbrough

    Darragh Lenihan sent-off for Middlesbrough right at the death.

    Last man as he chopped down Macaulay Bonne.

  17. Post update

    Swansea 0-3 Blackburn

    Joe Thompson

    Former Rochdale and Tranmere midfielder on Squad Goals

    Ben Brereton-Diaz celebrates

    Blackburn are a force to be reckoned with in the Championship.

    Last season they were a team in with a shout until the final weeks of the season.

    They've changed manager in the summer and Jon Dahl Tomasson's got them playing football the right way. Three goals, a clean sheet - that's a great day out for the Rovers fans.

  18. League Two update


    Luke Norris has equalised from the spot to draw Stevenage level at home to Stockport. The Hatters have had Ashley Palmer sent off for the foul that led to the spot-kick.

  20. League Two updates
