All 24 sides were in action in the Championship last night with Hull against Leeds the pick of the games. The busy night came after many clubs added players to their squads on transfer deadline day.
Leeds United fought back from 2-0 down to take a point against Hull City at the DW Stadium. Goals for Snodgrass just before half time and Somma ten minutes into the second half ensured Leeds got a share of the spoils after Hull led from Fryatt and Chester first half goals. The 2-2 draw means Leeds remain sixth in the table.
Barnsley plagued more misery upon bottom of the table Preston with a 2-0 victory. O'Connor's strike midway through the first half gave them the lead before a late strike from Haynes secured the victory. The win means Barnsley creep into the top half of the table.
Doncaster shook off their run of four consecutive defeats to narrowly overcome Burnley at the Keepmoat Stadium thanks to a Duff own goal just before the hour mark. The 1-0 defeat was Burnley boss Eddie Howe's first defeat.
Scunthorpe are now four points away from safety after losing 2-0 away at Middlesbrough in what was their ninth defeat in eleven games. Kris Boyd's 200th career goal set the tone for the evening in the eighth minute before McMahon added a second midway through the second half. Scunthorpe midfielder Andi Ibrahim was dismissed in the second half for two bookable offences.
Sheffield United dropped into the relegation zone after they lost 1-0 at home to Leicester City thanks to an early Andy King goal. The hosts had numerous chances and were left to rue their poor finishing.
Elsewhere in the Championship, Queens Park Rangers remain top after a 2-0 victory over Portsmouth, whilst Norwich stay second after a 2-1 win at home to Millwall. Cardiff rescued a point in the seventh minute of injury time in their match at home to Reading with the game ending 2-2. There were also wins for Swansea, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich whilst Watford drew with Crystal Palace.
