West Brom missed a chance to return to the top of the Championship when they could only draw at struggling Wigan. Sam Johnstone’s own goal five minutes into the second half put the home side ahead but Albion equalised when Charlie Austin struck from close range following an indirect free-kick. The 1-1 draw means Leeds stay top on goal difference.

Neil Harris suffered his first defeat as Cardiff manager when Brentford beat them 2-1. Bryan Mbeumo put the Bees ahead with a low finish after fine build-up play by Saïd Benrahma. Ollie Watkins doubled the lead on 46 minutes before Marlon Pack pulled one back with a long-range drive.

Swansea’s winless run extended to six in a 1-1 draw with Blackburn. Both goals came in the opening 10 minutes, Danny Graham’s right-foot shot giving the visitors a lead on four minutes that was swiftly cancelled out by André Ayew’s header.

Sheffield Wednesday spurned a chance to go fourth, drawing 1-1 at Derby. They also had Moses Odubajo sent off late on. Guardian sport
