Saturday Championship Round-up: Leeds Lose As Wolves Close In

Here's the roundup of today's Sky Bet Championship fixtures..
Millwall 1 - 0 Leeds United

Aiden O'Brien scored the only goal as Millwall beat leaders Leeds 1-0 to end the only remaining unbeaten record in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Lions dominated the clash and O'Brien gave them a deserved victory in the 73rd minute when he tucked home a loose ball in the penalty area.

His goal ended a run of six straight clean sheets for Leeds, who finished with 10 men after defender Pontus Jansson went off injured with all three substitutes on the pitch.
Sheffield United 0 - 1 Norwich City

Yanic Wildschut netted the only goal as Norwich became the first side to leave Sheffield United with three points this season.

Birmingham City 1 - 3 Preston North End 

Fourth-placed Preston scored three second-half goals as they came from behind to win 3-1 against Birmingham as Harry Redknapp was sacked after the match.

Maxime Colin scored before the break to put the Blues ahead but goals from Daniel Johnson, Jordan Hugill and Tom Barkhuizen inflicted a fifth straight defeat on Redknapp's side.

Bristol City 4 - 1 Derby County

Bristol City netted four times after the interval to hammer Derby 4-1.

Gary Rowett's side took the lead through Matej Vydra's first-half spot-kick only for goals from Cauley Woodrow, Bobby Reid (penalty), Jamie Paterson and Famara Diedhiou to give the in-form Robins all three points.

Burton Albion 2 - 1 Fulham

Goals from Stephen Warnock and Lucas Akins earned Burton a 2-1 win over Fulham, who had equalised through Oliver Norwood.

Cardiff City 1 - 1 Sheffield Wednesday

Cardiff are level on points with Thomas Christiansen's side after Sol Bamba netted a 95th-minute equaliser to nick a 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday.

The visitors had looked on course for a third straight win following Gary Hooper's opener just before the break but they were denied at the death.

Hull City 1 - 1 Sunderland

David Meyler rescued a late point for Hull after James Vaughan had given Sunderland hope of a first win in six games

Brentford 1 - 1 Reading
