Ipswich net Millwall win; Bolton draw at Huddersfield; Forest beat Burnley; Hull win at Watford; Wolves edge Brum
Ipswich 3 – Millwall 0 (Championship, December 8, 2012) DJ Campbell, on loan from Queens Park Rangers, converted a flowing move from close range to put the home side ahead with his seventh goal in 12 games. He then turned provider by chasing down Danny Shittu to gain possession and feed Daryl Murphy who swept home. Campbell scored his second from the penalty spot after Shane Lowry handled.
Huddersfield 2 – Bolton 2 (Championship, December 8, 2012) The Terriers went ahead when Anthony Gerrard’s goal-bound header went in off centre-back Zat Knight and Lee Novak struck the bar soon after. But the visitors equalised through Mark Davies’s neat finish and Chris Eagles had his penalty saved by Alex Smithies. Eagles made up for it with a 12-yard strike but James Vaughan scored from close range with three minutes remaining.
Nottingham Forest 2 – Burnley 0 (Championship, December 8, 2012) The Reds went into the game following consecutive defeats to Ipswich and Hull, but Dexter Blackstock set Forest on their way to victory with a bullet header on the hour mark. His strike partner Billy Sharp secured all three points, slotting home after being put through on goal by Andy Reid.
Watford 1 – Hull 2 (Championship, December 8, 2012) Sunderland loanee David Meyler headed in on the rebound to give the Tigers the lead just before half-time. Substitute Almen Abdi came close to equalising for the hosts when he hit the post, before Robbie Brady’s free-kick doubled Hull’s lead.
Wolves 1 – Birmingham 0 (Championship, December 8, 2012) The victory came courtesy of a Marlon King own goal and also helped ease the pressure on Wolves manager Stale Solbakken.
