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.Continue reading...

- 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.Continue reading...

- Sat, 19 Sep 2020 17:14:45 +0000: Championship roundup: Swansea and Birmingham coaches and players clash - Norwich City | The Guardian
- Melee mars goalless draw at Liberty Stadium
- Brentford inaugurate new ground by beating Huddersfield
Swansea and Birmingham shared a 0-0 Championship draw that was overshadowed by players and coaches clashing at the Liberty Stadium. The two teams could not be separated over the course of 90 minutes, during which Alan Tate, the home side’s first-team coach, grabbed the Blues midfielder Jon Toral by the throat.
There were few clearcut chances in either half as they had to settle for a point apiece. As the first period drew to a close the frustration of both sets of players and the coaching staff at the referee, Gavin Ward, rose. This culminated just before the break when Tate put his hands on Toral on the touchline and a huge melee by the tunnel broke out.
Ipswich, Lincoln and Hull maintained their perfect starts to the League One season with second consecutive victories. All three left it late, with Ipswich defeating Bristol Rovers 2-0, Lincoln beating MK Dons 2-1 and Hull edging a 1-0 win against Crewe. Fleetwood looked set to join them on six points only for Peterborough to score twice in injury time. Crewe are one of four teams still to pick up a point along with Rochdale, who play Portsmouth on Sunday, Oxford and Wigan.
Cambridge made it back-to-back wins in style as a 5-0 success at Morecambe left them top of League Two. Harrogate's dream start to life in the Football League was slowed down by Walsall, who earned a 2-2 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium despite the late dismissal of Danny Guthrie. Salford swaggered to a 4-0 win at Grimsby, helped by three penalties. Stevenage joined the massed ranks on four points as a 3-0 win over Oldham left the latter as one of four teams without a point. Southend suffered a second successive loss, going down 2-0 at Carlisle.Continue reading...

Norwich City strike late through Mario Vrancic to beat 10-man visitors Birmingham City in the Championship.
Norwich City have just had a bid to bring Leeds United player Robert Snodgrass to Carrow Road as Neil Warnock last night dashed all hopes of the Canaries signing the talented winger. Manager Chris Hughton is said to be extremely disappointed with the decision as he has been a firm fan of the player for some time but still hold hope that a deal can be struck between the two sides before the start of the season.
Norwich striker Chris Martin and his agent have both stated today that the striker would prefer to stay with the canaries amid rumours the player is surplus to requirements at Carrow Road. The twenty three year old found holding down a regular spot extremely difficult last year and then was loaned out to Crystal palace shortly afterwards but the player has now committed to the club and states he is willing to work for his place which will be great news for Norwich City fans.
Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies is another target for Hughton this summer as he has long been admirer of the young defender after he has made it clear he would like to move on from the Blues. The player is still under contract to Birmingham until 2014 after he arrived at the club from Aston Villa in early 2011 and it is thought the Blues will be holding out for a large transfer fee for the player as they have no intention of losing one of their best defenders for less than his market value.
