Norwich lose to Luton as Watford and Reading gain ground at the top

  • Goals from Pearson and Collins seal 3-1 win for Hatters
  • Draws for Watford and Reading put them within point of leaders

Norwich slipped to their first defeat in almost two months as they were beaten 3-1 at Luton in the Championship on Wednesday night.

A goal from Matty Pearson and a penalty from James Collins secured victory for the Hatters at Kenilworth Road after Emi Buendía had cancelled out George Moncur’s opener. The game was one of six in the EFL on Wednesday to welcome back supporters, and those inside seemed to inspire the home side as they denied Norwich a way back into the contest.

Championship roundup: Reading score inside 10 seconds in win at Blackburn

  • Royals win 4-2 at Ewood Park to go seven points clear at top
  • Wycombe seal first point of season after 1-1 draw with Watford

Reading scored inside 10 seconds as they continued their best start to a season for 35 years with a 4-2 win at Blackburn. The Royals are a surprise package following Veljko Paunovic’s appointment midway through pre-season as they won for a seventh time from eight games.

The foundations of the victory at Ewood Park was won in a crazy opening 18 minutes where Reading went 3-1 up thanks to goals from Yakou Méïté – clocked as the fastest in the club’s history – Michael Olise and Josh Laurent. Adam Armstrong had made it 1-1 and then got Blackburn back in it in the second half, but Lucas João killed the game in the final 10 minutes.

Championship roundup: João Pedro turns up heat for fast-rising Watford

  • In-from Brazilian teenager sparks 3-1 win over Blackburn
  • Harry Wilson denies Bournemouth; Ivan Toney hits double

João Pedro scored his third goal in three games to set Watford on the way to a 3-1 win against Blackburn that lifted them to third in the Championship table.

The 19-year-old Brazilian turned in a Kiko Femenía cross with a first-time finish before Tom Cleverley’s header doubled the lead. Ben Brereton’s fine strike reduced the arrears before the half-hour but Rovers, who had more possession and shots than the hosts, saw their luck run out after the break when Darragh Lenihan put through his own goal and Adam Armstrong saw a penalty saved by the excellent Ben Foster.

Championship roundup: Chris Hughton enjoys winning start with Forest

  • Joe Lolley’s deflected strike secures 1-0 win at Blackburn
  • Wycombe score first Championship goal but lose to Millwall

Chris Hughton marked his first game in charge of Nottingham Forest with a late 1-0 win at Blackburn. The former Newcastle and Brighton manager, who replaced Sabri Lamouchi after Forest’s four-game losing start to the season, will have been extremely encouraged by the performance of his new charges at Ewood Park.

The visitors looked solid and took hold of proceedings as the game wore on, with Thomas Kaminski saving well from Lyle Taylor and Sammy Ameobi, who also struck a post. They were eventually rewarded in the 90th minute through Joe Lolley’s deflected strike, which ended a run of six straight league defeats.

Ipswich stayed top as Gwion Edwards' third goal in two matches set them on their way to a 2-0 win over Accrington at Portman Road. Edwards drove in his fifth league goal of the season to give Town a 55th-minute lead and Freddie Sears sealed the points with a neat finish from a tight angle after good work from Alan Judge.

Cambridge moved to the summit by thrashing struggling Scunthorpe 5-0. Paul Mullin buried two penalties inside 10 minutes before the break to take his tally to seven league goals for the season. The visitors did not take their foot off the gas after the interval as Tyler Cordner's own goal made it 3-0. Scunthorpe's misery was compounded when Myles Hippolyte was shown a second yellow card after 55 minutes and Joe Ironside netted a double to make it 5-0.

Championship roundup: Rooney strikes late as Norwich rue Pukki penalty slip

  • Forest slump to fourth straight defeat as Bristol City go top
  • Puscas strikes against Watford as Reading keep perfect record

Wayne Rooney rolled back the years with a brilliant free-kick as Derby struck late to earn a 1-0 win at Norwich to record their first points of the season. The 33-year-old captain curled home from just outside the box in the 87th minute to secure his side a priceless victory. It was rough justice on Norwich, who dominated for long periods and wasted a gilt-edged chance to go ahead early in the second half when Teemu Pukki missed from the penalty spot after slipping on the sodden turf.

Bristol City returned to the top of the table after maintaining their 100% record with a battling 2-1 win at struggling Nottingham Forest. City took a 2-0 lead inside 22 minutes as Chris Martin set up goals for Andreas Weimann and Nahki Wells. Forest halved the deficit as Luke Freeman rifled home the hosts’ first goal of the campaign from 30 yards on 35 but, despite pushing hard for an equaliser in an improved display, Forest slumped to their fourth straight defeat.

The League One clash between Oxford United and Crewe Alexandra was postponed after one of the Railwaymen's players was informed they had  tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday morning.

Three teams started the day with maximum points but that became two after previous leaders Ipswich were pegged back in a 1-1 draw at MK Dons. That allowed Lincoln to jump to the summit after they came from 2-1 down with five minutes left to beat Blackpool 3-2. Hull also have the maximum 12 points after edging out Plymouth 1-0.

Newport lead the table in League Two after coming from 1-0 down with 12 minutes left to grab a 2-1 home win over Mansfield. Their 10-point haul is one clear of Morecambe, who also scored late to edge out Port Vale, who had started the day in second spot. Cambridge dropped from first to fourth after going down 2-0 at Exeter.

Derby humbled again as old boy Bradley Johnson hits two for Blackburn

Phillip Cocu questioned his team’s attitude after they were hammered 4-0 at home by Blackburn. The manager pulled no punches about a performance that condemned Derby to their worst start to a season since 1992.

Derby never recovered after three goals in four minutes gave Blackburn control and only David Marshall prevented an even heavier defeat. Tyrhys Dolan scored from close range after Ben Brereton hit the post in the 11th minute and the former Derby midfielder Bradley Johnson smashed in a second from 25 yards a minute later.
