Championship Round-up: Wolves Win Big Again As Sheffield Draw With Birmingham

Here's the roundup of today's Championship games....
Wolverhampton Wanderers 5 - 1 Bolton Wanderers 

English Championship leaders Wolves show no sign of letting up after dispatching Bolton 5-1.

Fresh from a 4-1 win over Leeds, the Molineux men scored through Willy Boly, Leo Bonatini, Ivan Cavaleiro (two, one pen) and Diego Jota. 

Will Buckley netted Bolton's consolation.

Sheffield United 1 - 1 Birmingham City

Leon Clarke's stunning run of form saw him earn a point for Sheffield United in a 1-1 draw with Birmingham.

The 32-year-old striker, who had scored back-to-back hat-tricks at Bramall Lane, found the scoresheet in the second half to cancel out Jeremie Boga's brilliant first-half opener for Birmingham.

Clarke struck in the 71st minute with his ninth goal in four games as the Blades drew for the first time since March.

Barnsley 0 - 2 Leeds United 

Leeds bounced back from their midweek loss at Wolves to win at Barnsley - one their bogey grounds.

United have a bad record at Oakwell but bucked the trend today, Samuel Saiz and Gjanni Alioski scoring first-half goals in a 2-0 win.

Aston Villa 2 - 0 Ipswich Town

In-form Aston Villa won again, seeing off Ipswich 2-0 to keep in the automatic promotion hunt.

Albert Adomah was their match-winner once more, taking his tally to five in three games with one either side of the break.

Burton Albion 0 - 2 Sunderland

Chris Coleman secured his first win as Sunderland manager as they beat Burton 2-0 to lift themselves off the bottom of the table.

Coleman quit Wales last weekend to take over the stricken Stadium of Light club and had little time to work with the players ahead of a midweek defeat to Aston Villa.

But more work on the training ground bore fruit at the Pirelli Stadium as James Vaughan's 84th-minute goal and a second from George Honeyman (88) earned the win.

Hull City 2 - 3 Bristol City 
The pressure remains firmly on Hull boss Leonid Slutsky after they squandered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at home to Bristol City.

Without a win in five, Hull looked to be doing the job as Fraizer Campbell and top-scorer Jarrod Bowen put them in an apparently safe position.

But Aden Flint and Bobby Reid got Bristol City back in it and Josh Brownhill won it with a minute to go.

Middlesbrough 0 - 3 Derby County

Derby leapfrogged Middlesbrough into the play-off positions as they crushed their hosts 3-0 at the Riverside.

Matej Vydra was their match-winner, scoring a hat-trick to take his season's tally to 12.

The middle of the three was a penalty, while Boro had Daniel Ayala sent off.

Norwich City 1 - 1 Preston North End

Norwich's winless run extended to seven as Preston, led by former City boss Alex Neil, came back to draw 1-1.

James Maddison put Norwich ahead but Tom Barkhuizen replied.

Fulham 1 - 0 Millwall 

Oliver Norwood's penalty saw Fulham beat Millwall 1-0
Reading 0 - 0 Sheffield Wednesday

Reading drew 0-0 with Sheffield Wednesday.
