West Brom moved to the summit despite being held at the Hawthorns by Millwall, who secured a 1-1 draw via Daniel Ballard’s 55th-minute header. That came six minutes after Kyle Bartley had put the hosts in front, with Albion – still undefeated in the league this term under Valerien Ismael – having earlier failed to convert a penalty, Karlan Grant seeing his effort in first-half stoppage time saved by Bartosz Bialkowski.

Also a point behind Albion are Stoke, who moved up to third place with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Huddersfield at the bet365 Stadium. Matty Pearson’s own-goal in the 63rd minute proved the winner after Jacob Brown had swiftly replied to Harry Toffolo’s 47th-minute opener.

Fourth-placed QPR saved themselves from a first defeat of the campaign as Stefan Johansen’s stoppage-time equaliser earned them a 3-3 draw at Reading, for whom John Swift scored a hat-trick. After a Michael Morrison own goal put the R’s 1-0 up in the 11th minute, Swift’s treble had Reading looking set for victory. But Andre Gray then reduced the deficit in the 79th minute before Johansen had the final say.

Scott Parker’s Bournemouth moved into the play-off places as they continued their unbeaten start in the league by seeing off Barnsley 3-0 at the Vitality Stadium. Young left-back Jordan Zemura scored early and late on in the contest, either side of a Dominic Solanke goal just after half-time.

The final play-off spot is occupied by Coventry following their 2-0 home win over Middlesbrough, in which Viktor Gyokeres and Martyn Waghorn were on the scoresheet.

Iliman Ndiaye and Ben Osborn both scored twice as Sheffield United secured their first Championship victory in style, beating Peterborough 6-2 at Bramall Lane. The score was level at half-time after Ndiaye’s opener for the home side and Jack Marriott’s reply. The Blades then went 5-1 up via efforts from John Fleck, Osborn, Morgan Gibbs-White and Ndiaye, and, after Jonson Clarke-Harris pulled back a 79th-minute goal from the spot, Osborn completed the scoring in added time.

Luton drew 2-2 at Blackburn thanks to a Luke Berry double, the second of which came in the eighth minute of stoppage time. Rovers led 2-0 at the break through Tyrhys Dolan and Harry Pickering efforts before Berry began his rescue act with a 73rd-minute finish.

Elsewhere on Saturday, there were 0-0 draws between Bristol City and Preston, and Swansea and Hull.

On Friday Birmingham City and Derby County locked horns with the Brummies coming out top with a 2-0 home win. A defensive mix-up allowed Scott Hogan to give Lee Bowyer's men the lead, with Jeremie Bela's powerful finish enough to crush any hopes of a Derby fightback.

While in the last game of Match Day 6 on Sunday Nottingham Forest lost at home to Cardiff City. It leaves Forest at the bottom of the division with one point from six games and Cardiff in 8th with 11 points.
