Fulham went to Bristol City looking to rebound from a second defeat in three games and when Aleksandar Mitrovic’s header five minutes into the second half put promotion hopefuls Fulham ahead it looked as if they would get their wish. However City substitute Kasey Palmer spoilt the party when he levelled 11 minutes from time and the game finished 1-1 despite a thrilling finale, Fulham were denied by the crossbar when Jean Michael Seri's shot was deflected and Mitrovic twice shot narrowly wide before also clipping the woodwork at the death.

Bournemouth climbed to the top of the Championship with a 2-1 victory over Luton as the Cherries continued their unbeaten start.

West Brom’s 2-1 home win against QPR on Friday night had knocked Scott Parker’s side off the top, but they restored their lead thanks to Philip Billing’s volley in the 17th-minute – his fifth goal of the season – and Dominic Solanke’s header. Reece Burke pulled one back for the visitors in the 64th minute.

Ben Brereton Díaz scored three as Blackburn stretched their unbeaten run to five matches with a 5-1 mauling of Cardiff. Sam Gallagher opened the scoring in the 24th minute, then Brereton Díaz netted twice against a side who are still without a first-half goal this season. Tyrhys Dolan made it 4-0 eight minutes into the second half and, although the Bluebirds pulled one back through Sean Morrison, Brereton Díaz had the final say with a late penalty.

Mario Vrancic and Nick Powell were on the scoresheet as fellow high-flyers Stoke beat visiting Hull 2-0.

Derby
’s troubles continued with a 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United. The Rams, who plunged to the foot of the table on Wednesday when they went into administration, were down to 10 men when the goalkeeper Kelle Roos was dismissed 12 minutes into the second half for bringing down Billy Sharp. Sharp added insult to injury at the end when he struck the only goal from the spot.

Shayne Lavery’s 32nd minute goal gave Blackpool a 1-0 home win over Barnsley which lifts them further clear of the bottom three.

It was a similar story for Swansea as Joël Piroe’s 17th-minute goal was enough to see off Huddersfield in south Wales.

Max Lowe’s 52nd-minute goal earned Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest a 1-1 draw at home to Millwall, who had led through Matt Smith’s towering 32nd-minute header. Cooper praised his new side’s mentality, adding: “There was an amazing atmosphere and we have a set of supporters who want to get behind this team. Today has really whetted my appetite for what is ahead.”

Birmingham and Preston finished goalless at St Andrew’s after Troy Deeney’s diving header had rattled the crossbar.

In the lunchtime kick-off, Reading beat Middlesbrough 1-0 to record a third successive win. Alen Halilovic scored in the 55th minute, before Matt Crooks was sent off for clashing with home goalkeeper Luke Southwood. Reading’s manager, Veljko Paunovic, later refused to comment on the club potentially facing a nine-point deduction for breaching EFL financial guidelines. “I don’t want distractions,” he said. “We are only focused on the things that we can control – and that is our performance.”
