Saturday 23rd November

New Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka suffered defeat in his first game in charge going down 2-1 at Leeds United.

Ross McCormack opened the scoring with a close-range header before winger Mustapha Carayol equalised for Boro. Jason Pearce, with another header, grabbed the winner to see Leeds go into a Play-Off spot.

Burnley's lead at the top of the Sky Bet Championship table was cut after Nottingham Forest held the early pace-setters to a draw at the City Ground.

The Clarets took the lead after Gonzalo Jara was penalised for handball and Wales striker Sam Vokes scored from the spot, but Simon Cox equalised for Forest with a header and now Burnley top the table on goal difference alone.

Two David Nugent goals gave Leicester City a 2-1 win and kept the Foxes in second place after David McGoldrick's strike after less than two minutes threatened to secure the spoils for Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Leicester are only ahead of Queens Park Rangers by virtue of having scored more goals however and Charlie Austin's first-half shot from outside the box was enough to claim a 1-0 victory for Harry Redknapp's side against struggling Charlton Athletic.

Jamie Ward's second-half goal was enough for Derby County to claim a 1-0 win away at Bournemouth and leave the Rams in seventh spot, while Blackpool are in fourth place following a 1-1 draw at Birmingham City.

Jesse Lingard put the home team ahead before Ricardo Fuller fired in Tom Ince's cross for the equaliser.

Sheffield Wednesday remain mired in the relegation zone after losing at home to Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town.

Martin Paterson opened the scoring for the visitors before Adam Clayton made it 2-0, with Connor Wickham's injury-time free-kick a mere consolation.

There was more South Yorkshire woe for Barnsley, who went down 1-0 at Millwall thanks to a Scott Wiseman own goal.

Bolton Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion both enjoyed 1-0 away wins - Bolton triumphed at Watford thanks to Jermaine Beckford's 27th-minute strike from close range while the Seagulls had Andrew Croft's header to thank for victory at Wigan Athletic.

Blackburn Rovers and Reading played out a goalless draw at Ewood Park.

Friday 22nd November

Mark Duffy's late free-kick gave 10-man Doncaster Rovers a first Sky Bet Championship victory in five games as they beat fellow strugglers Yeovil Town 2-1 at the Keepmoat Stadium.

South Africa international Dean Furman's early goal had put the home side ahead, before Byron Webster equalised against his former club on the stroke of half-time.

Furman was then sent off for a second booking, but Duffy's first goal for Rovers was enough to condemn the Glovers to an 11th league defeat of the season.
