Championship MatchDay 11 Wrap-up


Fulham finished Match Day Eleven in fifth place in the Championship table and five points off the top spot.

Fulham arrived at The Ricoh Arena to face Coventry City on the back of a 3-1 win against Swansea. Things appeared to be going according to plan with Fulham in front by 1-0 at halftime but they were then overwhelmed by Coventry losing 4-1 in their worse result so far this season.

Kyle McFadzean headed an 18th-minute own goal to hand the visitors the lead, but Mark Robins’ side stormed back with Viktor Gykores levelling two minutes after the interval and Matthew Godden giving them the lead four minutes later from the penalty spot. Ian Maatsen lashed a superb 61st-minute strike to give his side breathing space before Gykores wrapped up the comeback with his second of the game.

Fulham Head Coach Marco Silva apologised to the Fulham fans who travelled hoping their side could reclaim top spot, adding: “The second half was wrong, everything was all wrong from beginning to end. And the referee did everything wrong too because it’s a clear dive for their penalty, but it is not his fault we lost.”

Bournemouth scored twice in three minutes as they staged a dramatic comeback to beat Sheffield United and go three points clear at the top of the Championship.

Scott Parker’s side, who had seen their four-game winning streak ended in a midweek draw at Peterborough, looked set for more frustration when Morgan Gibbs-White gave the Blades a 56th-minute lead. But the hosts were level in six minutes when Dominic Solanke won and converted a penalty, then Philip Billing drilled home from the edge of the box three minutes later.

On Friday evening Stoke battled through to strike late and earn a 1-0 win over previously-unbeaten West Brom at the Bet365 Stadium. Despite a series of missed opportunities including having a penalty saved Stoke prevailed over West Brom with a 79th minute goal and leapfrogged Fulham into 4th place. West Brom dropped to second spot three points behind Bournemouth

QPR came from behind to sink Preston 3-2 with Ilias Chair hitting the winner 16 minutes from time. Lyndon Dykes’ early opener was cancelled out by Emil Riis and Josh Earl before Jimmy Dunne’s 71st-minute effort had dragged Rangers back on level terms.

Luton could not follow up their 5-0 midweek thrashing of Coventry with another goal-laden performance as they played out a goalless Championship draw with Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.

Chris Martin fired an 84th-minute winner as Bristol City won 3-2 at Peterborough. Sammie Szmodics gave the hosts an early lead but a Nathan Thompson own goal and a 40th-minute effort from George Tanner put the visitors in front before half-time. Szmodics headed his second to send the sides in level at the break before Martin’s late strike saw the visitors hit back from their midweek defeat at Millwall.

Shane Lavery’s fourth-minute opener and a second from his replacement Jerry Yates on 24 minutes proved enough for Blackpool to sink Blackburn in the Lancashire derby, although Ben Brereton Diaz’s 10th goal of the season in the 50th minute forced the hosts to cling on for a 2-1 win.

Millwall extended their unbeaten Championship run to seven games as Murray Wallace headed an 89th-minute winner at Barnsley,

Steve Cooper’s immediate impact at Nottingham Forest continued as his side made it seven points from a possible nine under his charge with a 3-0 win at Birmingham. Forest took the lead against the run of play in the 11th minute through captain Lewis Grabban, before Ryan Yates doubled their lead with a diving header on the half-hour and Djed Spence fired into the roof of the net after the re-start.

Junior Hoilett came back to haunt his former club as he scored the only goal to earn Reading a 1-0 victory and increase the pressure on Cardiff manager Mick McCarthy. Cardiff have now lost their last five successive Championship matches and seven of their last eight in all competitions. They were booed off at the final whistle.  Mick McCarthy, who admitted his future is now out of his hands following five straight league defeats. “That decision is not up to me but I think that performance shows I certainly haven’t lost the dressing room. It shows we can get a response.”

Struggling Hull left it late to claim their first league win in 10 games with a 2-0 success over Middlesbrough. Joe Lumley’s bizarre 81st-minute own goal – Keane Lewis-Potter’s close-range strike rebounding off the post onto Lumley’s head and into the net – gave the Tigers the lead moments after Keane Lewis-Potter had struck the post, then Mallik Wilks sealed victory in injury time.

Bottom club Derby delivered another spirited display to hold Swansea to a 0-0 draw at rainswept Pride Park. Swansea dominated for long periods of the game but only forced Ryan Allsop into one serious save in the game. Derby, who were docked 12 points after going into administration two weeks ago, could have snatched a second victory in four days but for Ben Hamer, who made a triple save to deny Tom Lawrence early in the second half.
