Becchio’s panenka lifts Leeds; Cardiff stay top winning at Ipswich; Foxes stay 2nd; Palace beat Burnley 4-3
- October 6, 2012
Ipswich 1 – Cardiff 2 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Ipswich led through a controversial DJ Campbell goal, as replays showed the striker used his hand to prod home. Cardiff got a lifeline when Ipswich goalkeeper Scott Loach spilled Craig Conway’s cross and Heidar Helguson pounced. Then with two minutes left Ipswich’s defensive frailities again came to the fore as Helguson stole in at the back post to head in Andrew Taylor’s cross.
Blackburn 0 – Wolves 1 (Championship, October 6, 2012) The stalemate lasted until the 78th minute but was ended when Bakary Sako struck from the edge of the penalty area to move Wanderers into third.
Birmingham 0 – Huddersfield 1 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Jermaine Beckford netted after 25 minutes to hand Huddersfield three points from their trip to Birmingham, who had substitute Nikola Zigic sent off.
Blackpool 0 – Charlton 2 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Second-half goals from Chris Solly and Leon Cort were enough for Charlton to win 2-0 at an off-colour Blackpool.
Crystal Palace 4 – Burnley 3 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Chris McCann (26) and Martin Paterson (29) put the Clarets two up before a brace either side of half-time by Wilfried Zaha tied the score. Damien Delaney and Glenn Murray gave Palace breathing space only for the prolific Charlie Austin to grab his 15th of the season with nine minutes remaining.
Leicester 2 – Bristol City 0 (Championship, October 6, 2012) David Nugent’s 19th minute opener and a Richard Foster own-goal in the second half ensured the Foxes kept their own promotion bid on the right track.
Millwall 2 – Bolton 1 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Bolton’s season continued to falter as Darius Henderson struck twice – induding his last-gasp winner – to give Millwall a 2-1 victory. Chris Eagles had earlier equalised for Owen Coyle’s side.
Sheffield Wednesday 0 – Hull 1 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Aaron McLean struck in the 77th minute as the Tigers claimed an away win at Sheffield Wednesday.
Peterborough 0 – Nottingham Forest 1 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Andy Reid scored the only goal of the game for Nottingham Forest at Peterborough.
Watford 1 – Middlesbrough 2 (Championship, October 6, 2012) Troy Deeney scored in the first minute for the Hornets but that was as good as it got as Marvin Emnes levelled and Matej Vydra was dismissed before half-time. Scott McDonald came off the bench to win it for Boro with 13 minutes to play.
Derby 0 – Brighton 0 (Championship, October 6, 2012)
