Championship MatchDay 13 Wrap-up


Fulham climbed above West Brom, at the end of Match Day Thirteen, into second place in the table after a 2-0 home win against Cardiff. The substitute Tom Cairney marked his return after a 10-month absence with the goal that set the hosts on course for victory at Craven Cottage and increased the pressure on the Cardiff manager, Mick McCarthy.

Cairney appeared as a half-time replacement for his first appearance since December and took just 12 minutes to fire them in front. Aleksandar Mitrovic added the second in the 63rd minute for his 13th league goal of the season as Marco Silva’s side stepped up their early promotion challenge.

Bournemouth moved five points clear at the top of the Championship with a 1-0 win at Stoke. Dominic Solanke’s goal early in the second half proved enough for victory, which leaves the unbeaten Cherries five points ahead of second-placed Fulham.

West Brom lost ground on the Championship leaders as Jamie Paterson’s superb strike secured Swansea a 2-1 comeback win. Karlan Grant’s goal after just 52 seconds gave the visitors a deserved 1-0 half-time lead, but Swansea were the better side after the break. The in-form striker Joel Piroe’s eighth goal in all competitions brought them level and then set up Paterson who finished with aplomb.

Coventry stay fourth despite losing 2-1 at home against Preston. Tyler Walker put Coventry ahead but goals after the break from Patrick Bauer and Emil Riis Jakobsen turned the game on its head.

QPR are up to fifth after a late goal from Ilias Chair secured a 1-0 win over Blackburn at Loftus Road. Elsewhere, Lyle Taylor scored twice in the closing moments

Huddersfield and Birmingham shared the points in the only goalless game of the night although that was enough to move Town up to sixth in the table.

At the bottom of the table Elijah Adebayo hit an equaliser with seven minutes left as Luton fought back to draw 2-2 at Derby. Tom Lawrence put the Rams ahead midway through the first half, but substitute Fred Onyedinma levelled things up shortly after the restart. Adebayo made sure the Hatters left with a point when he headed in late on - and Onyedinma almost won it as his shot crashed against the crossbar.

Goals from Andraz Sporar and Matt Crooks maintained Middlesbrough’s march up the table as Neil Warnock’s team won 2-0 against Barnsley at the Riverside to end up in 10th spot.

In the big game towards the bottom end of the table, Peterborough won 2-1 at Hull. Jack Taylor and Josh Magennis scored late in the first half and, after Magennis had blazed a penalty over the crossbar after 66 minutes, Siriki Dembele won it for Peterborough shortly afterwards.

Elsewere in mid-table Reading slipped out of the play-off places after squandering a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 against Blackpool. Scott Dann and Tom Dele-Bashiru scored to put Reading in control heading into half-time but second-half strikes from Owen Dale and Jerry Yates, his second goal coming from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining, sealed a stirring victory for Blackpool.

While Jake Cooper struck in stoppage time as Millwall beat 10-man Sheffield United 2-1 at Bramall Lane. Jed Wallace had given the Lions the lead in the 11th minute, but a penalty from Billy Sharp had the Blades level on the stroke of half-time.

The Blades midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White was dismissed for a second caution in the 54th minute. Then just as time seemed up, with two minutes of the additional six played, Cooper fired in a 20-yard effort to snatch all three points to put Millwall in 10th.
