  • Sat, 10 Apr 2021 17:13:45 +0000: Championship roundup: Brentford thrash Preston as Lowe lifts Swansea - Championship | The Guardian
    • Brentford back on form with 5-0 triumph at Preston
    • Lowe strikes twice as Swansea beat Millwall 3-0

    Brentford kept their faint automatic promotion hopes alive with a fine 5-0 victory at Preston. The Bees scored twice in the first half and three times in the second to end a run of four straight Championship draws in emphatic style.

    Their biggest away win of the season – thanks to goals from Bryan Mbeumo, Marcus Forss, Ivan Toney, Sergi Canós and Emiliano Marcondes – moved Thomas Frank’s side within nine points of second-placed Watford, with six games still to play. Watford, in turn, are eight points behind leaders Norwich, who won 1-0 at Derby.

    Hull kept themselves clear at the top of League One with a convincing 3-0 win at Plymouth. Keane Lewis-Potter fired the Tigers in front early on, with Josh Magennis and Greg Docherty wrapping up victory in the second half. 

    Bottom-side Grimsby lost 1-0 at Bradford with Stefan Payne sent off in bizarre circumstances – headbutting his own teammate, while Port Vale’s 1-0 win over Morecambe had a 45-minute break in play midway through the first half because of snow.

  • Sat, 10 Apr 2021 16:25:15 +0000: Kieran Dowell’s free-kick fires Norwich past Derby and closer to promotion - Championship | The Guardian

    It has felt a matter of when and not if Norwich will be promoted for a few months but results elsewhere dictated they will have to wait at least another week to seal an immediate return to the Premier League, despite the Championship leaders overcoming lowly Derby here courtesy of a delicious Kieran Dowell free-kick. Victory over Bournemouth at Carrow Road next Saturday would secure promotion and, while Daniel Farke insists his players are not yet dancing on tables in delight, the finish line is tantalisingly close.

    This was not the 7-0 demolition job they managed against Huddersfield on Tuesday and, though not a buccaneering performance, Farke cut a happy figure at full time. “It was not champagne football but a hard-fought win,” he said. “At the end of the season I’m sure we’ll celebrate promotion with this win. Brentford and Swansea have shown they have the quality to win all of their last games. We need two more points. We want to finish in style. I don’t see why we should lose any of our remaining five games.”

    Watford moved a step closer to an instant Premier League return after two goals in as many first-half minutes from Ismaïla Sarr earned a 2-0 win at home to Reading. Xisco, the Watford manager, saw his side move to within five points of leaders Norwich as well as establishing a 12-point lead over third-place Brentford, who have two games in hand including Saturday’s visit to Preston.
