Vital View - Championship - 1st-4th December 2017

The Championship season continued with the latest round of games played over the weekend.

On Friday, in one of two games, Cardiff kept their automatic promotion bid very much on track with victory over Norwich.

Sheffield United slipped below Bristol City - further away from second placed Cardiff - when suffering defeat at Millwall, whereas the Robins beat Middlesbrough in the late kick off on Saturday to move up to third.

Defeat means Sunderland remain second bottom in the Championship; they lost at the Stadium of Light against Reading. The Black Cats are above only Burton, who lost at Derby as Bolton moved out of the relegation zone with a victory over Barnsley.

However, Birmingham could move out of trouble once more on Monday if they get a result at Wolves. That wasn't the case as a Blues defeat at St Andrew's kept them in the bottom three and allowed their visiting rivals to consolidate their lead at the top.

Here's a round up of the Championship results.


Friday 1st December
Cardiff City 3-1 Norwich City 19:45
Leeds United 1-1 Aston Villa 19:45

Saturday 2nd December
Bolton Wanderers 3-1 Barnsley 15:00
Brentford 3-1 Fulham 15:00
Derby County 1-0 Burton Albion 15:00
Ipswich Town 4-2 Nottingham Forest 15:00
Millwall 3-1 Sheffield United 15:00
Preston North End 1-0 Queens Park Rangers 15:00
Sheffield Wednesday 2-2 Hull City 15:00
Sunderland 1-3 Reading 15:00
Bristol City 2-1 Middlesbrough 17:30

Monday 4th December
Birmingham City 0-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 19:45
