In Match Day 29 Part One Matt Doherty scored the only goal as Wolves extended their lead at the top of the Sky Bet Championship to 12 points with a 1-0 victory at Ipswich.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side suffered a shock home defeat by Nottingham Forest last weekend but they bounced back to record their first win in five games in all competitions against an Ipswich team with only one victory from their previous six matches.

Bristol City shrugged off Nathan Baker's first-half red card to earn a 2-0 win over QPR that moved them up to fourth.

The Robins were without a victory in four Championship games but Famara Diedhiou put the 10 men in front in first-half stoppage time and Joe Bryan's finish midway through the second half secured three much-needed points.

Fulham continued their excellent form with a 3-1 comeback win at 10-man Barnsley.

The Reds took the lead after 31 minutes through Liam Lindsay's contentious goal but they lost Dimitri Cavare to a second yellow card on the stroke of half-time.

That proved to be the turning point as Ryan Sessegnon equalised just after the restart and added a second deep into stoppage time minutes after Kevin McDonald had broken Barnsley's resistance.

The victory stretched Fulham's unbeaten run to seven games and moved Slavisa Jokanovic's side into the top six.

Brentford, prior to this game unbeaten at home in thirteen games, missed the chance to make ground on the play-offs after losing 1-0 at home to Norwich.

James Maddison's stunning strike put the visitors ahead after only five minutes and the Bees were unable to respond as they dropped a place to 10th.

So an exciting Match Day 29 Part Two will show if Fulham can hold on the their PlayOff place

Saturday 27th January 2018

15:00 Barnsley 1-3 Fulham -

Promotion-chasing Fulham scored twice in second-half added time to beat 10-man Barnsley at Oakwell.

The Tykes led when Liam Lindsay turned in from a corner, but Fulham dominated after Dimitri Cavare's second booking for a push on Stefan Johansen.

Ryan Sessegnon fired in the rebound after Ryan Fredericks' shot came back off the post early in the second half.

Kevin McDonald stabbed in from close range to put Fulham ahead, before Sessegnon's second goal sealed the win.

Barnsley paid tribute to former owner Patrick Cryne, who died of cancer aged 66 on Monday, with a pre-match minute of silence and a round of applause in the 66th minute.

15:00 Brentford 0-1 Norwich -

James Maddison's superb long-range strike was enough for Norwich to end Brentford's 13-game unbeaten home run.

Brentford had not lost at Griffin Park in the Championship since the opening day of the season, but Maddison's 30-yard effort put Norwich ahead early on.

Nelson Oliveira and Grant Hanley went close to making it 2-0 while Florian Jozefzoon, Yoann Barbet and Alan Judge all had efforts for the hosts.

The Bees pushed but Norwich held on for a fourth straight away clean sheet.

15:00 Bristol C 2-0 QPR -

Bristol City scored twice with 10 men as they beat Queens Park Rangers.

City had lost six of their previous seven, including their EFL Cup semi-final with Manchester City, and had Nathan Baker sent off for a late tackle on Josh Scowen after half an hour.

Record signing Famara Diedhiou put the 10-man Robins ahead just before half-time, glancing home Ryan Kent's corner.

Diedhiou, back after three months out with injury, set up the second as his saved shot was turned in by Joe Bryan.

The victory moved City above Aston Villa into fourth place in the Championship, while Rangers remain in 16th.

15:00 Ipswich 0-1 Wolves -

Wolves moved 12 points clear at the top of the Championship with victory over Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Full-back Matt Doherty headed in Barry Douglas' left-wing cross to give Wolves a deserved half-time lead.

Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves and left-back Douglas also went close for the visitors in the first period.

Jota had two more efforts saved by Ipswich goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski, while Martyn Waghorn shot into the side-netting for the hosts.

Second-placed Derby were not in action on Saturday but they can reduce the gap with Wolves when they travel to Millwall on Tuesday.
