Championship round-up: Wolves win again while Sunderland claim impressive draw

2018-02-10 18:40:27

Wolves moved 13 points clear at the top of the Championship after beating QPR 2-1 at Molineux.

First-half goals from Alfred N'Diaye and Helder Costa put the hosts into a comfortable position going into the break.

However, it was a nervy finish for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men after Conor Washington pulled one back after the interval and skipper Conor Coady was forced to clear Eberechi Eze's late shot off the line.

Chris Coleman’s struggling Sunderland side secured a remarkable point at Bristol City , coming back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with the play-off hopefuls.

The Robins were 3-0 up inside 37 minutes thanks to goals from Flint and a double from Famara Diedhiou had some of the travelling supporters heading for an early exit.

They were left to rue the decision to leave early however as Josh Brownhill's own goal and Aiden McGeady's strike gave them serious hope, before Marlon Pack diverted into his own net for 3-3.

Derby County were held at home by fellow promotion hopefuls Norwich City in a tense 1-1 draw at Pride Park Stadium.

Matej Vydra's 17th Championship goal of the season put the Rams ahead thanks to a cool finish from a Ikechi Anya assist.

However, after Nelson Oliveira saw his spot-kick saved by Scott Carson , the Canaries ensured they would be leaving with a point after James Maddison stepped up from 12 yards.

In the early kick off, Paul Heckingbottom had a Leeds debut to forget as they were beaten 2-1 in the Yorkshire derby at Sheffield United .

Billy Sharp netted a double, including a superb volley to ensure Leeds left with nothing.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga's powerful header levelled the scores after the break but Sharp netted from the penalty spot.

Adam Le Fondre scored his first goal in six months to ensure Bolton claimed a point at home to Fulham .

On-loan Southampton full-back Matthew Targett gave the visitors the lead inside five minutes with a close-range header.

However, Le Fondre grabbed a point for his side with a magnificent volley to score his first goal in 21 games.

Middlesbrough heaped more pressure on Jaap Stam as they beat Reading 2-1 at The Riverside.

Adama Traore opened the scoring with a fine finish on his left foot, and then he beat Vito Mannone again with a fine drive.

Chris Martin gave the visitors faint hope, but in truth Boro were comfortable and should have added a third had Britt Assombalonga not ballooned his penalty over the bar.

Ten-man Preston held out for a bruising 1-1 draw at Brentford .

Tom Barkhuizen opened the scoring in the 54th minute with a whipped cross from the left that eluded everyone and flew just inside the far post.

Bees winger Florian Jozefzoon levelled the scores as North End had to see out the final 16 minutes without Greg Cunningham after the left-back saw red for a second bookable challenge on the Brentford goalscorer.

Hull City moved out of the relegation zone after beating Nottingham Forest 2-0 to claim a first win in 10 matches.

Jon Toral recovered after missing a penalty to open the scoring with a free header from a corner.

And a slick counter attack saw Harry Wilson slam home from close-range to make the result safe and pile more pressure on Aitor Karanka, who has lost four of his last five.

Barnsley caretaker boss Paul Harsley had to settle for a point in his first game in charge as Sheffield Wednesday held the home side to a 1-1 draw at Oakwell.

The Owls took the lead thanks to Atdhe Nuhiu's penalty after Andy Yiadom fouled Lucas Joao.

It was an instant reply for the home side when Oli McBurnie slotted in for the Tykes midway through the first half to level, but neither side could find a winner.

Burton Albion remain rooted to the bottom of the Championship table after they claimed a 0-0 draw at Ipswich.

It was a dull affair at Portman Road, with the hosts failing to register a shot in a turgid first half.

Former Ipswich striker Darren Bent might have broken the deadlock for the Brewers, but saw his shot blocked by the legs of goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.
