Championship Review - Nov 23rd

Last updated : 24 November 2013 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

It's all become tight at the top as Burnley were held at the City Ground by Nottingham Forest after Vokes gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot in the 28th minute. Any thoughts of another victory were snuffed out when Cox levelled the score 3 minutes before the break. Nottingham Forest 5th, Burnley 1st.

Joining the Clarets at the top are Leicester City, who are only second on goal difference after their 2-1 win at Portman Road against Ipswich Town. McGoldrick gave the Tractorboys a 2nd minute lead, only to see Nugent bag a brace in the 51st and 57th minutes. Ipswich Town 12th, Leicester City 2nd.

Also level on points at the top, and outside the automatic promotion places on goals scored are Queens Park Rangers, who managed to overcome Charlton Athletic at Loftus Road with a solitary Austin strike in the 40th minute. Queens Park Rangers 3rd, Charlton Athletic 21st.

If Blackpool harbour ambitions of automatic promotion, they need to be beating sides like Birmingham City, who continue to struggle towards the wrong end of the table. Lingard, in the 27th minute, gave the Blues the lead at St Andrews with Fuller levelling 9 minutes later. Birmingham City 20th, Blackpool 4th.

Leeds United managed to see off 10-man Middlesbrough at Elland Road. McCormack gave the home side the lead in the 35th minute. Even though Steele was sent off for the visitors just before the break, that didn't stop Boro from levelling through Carayol in the 52nd minute. Pearce bagged the winner 5 minutes later. Leeds United 6th, Middlesbrough 18th.

Derby County kept up the pressure on the play-off places with a 1-0 win on the south coast against AFC Bournemouth at Dean Court. Ward bagged the only goal of the game just after the hour mark. AFC Bournemouth 16th, Derby County 7th.

Brighton & Hove Albion are slowly closing in on the play-off places following a single goal victory over Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium. Crofts bagged the only goal of the game in the 72nd minute to give the Seagulls the points. Wigan Athletic 11th, Brighton & Hove Albion 9th.

Bolton Wanderers continue to improve as they came away from Vicarage Road with the points following a 1-0 win over Watford. Beckford scored the only goal of the game in the 27th minute. Watford 10th, Bolton Wanderers 15th.

Local bragging rights in Yorkshire go to Huddersfield Town as they managed to come away from Hillsborough with a 2-1 win over struggling Sheffield Wednesday. Paterson gave the Terriers the lead in the 11th minute, with Clayton doubling the advantage in the 68th minute. The Owls managed to claim a consolation in the 93rd minute through loanee Wickham. Sheffield Wednesday 22nd, Huddersfield Town 13th.

Millwall managed to give themselves some breathing space at the foot of the table with a 1-0 win over strugglers Barnsley at The Den. A Wiseman own goal in the 77th minute sunk the Tykes to leave them deep in trouble. Millwall 17th, Barnsley 23rd.

Billed as a relegation 6-pointer Doncaster Rovers hosted Yeovil Town at the Keepmoat on Friday evening. Furman gave Donny the lead in the 11th minute, only to see Webster level just before the break. Furman then saw red in the 80th minute, so would have been relieved to see Duffy bag the winner 2 minutes later to leave the Glovers deep in trouble. Doncaster Rovers 19th, Yeovil Town 24th.

The only other game played saw Blackburn Rovers (14th) draw 0-0 against Reading (8th) at Ewood Park.
