Two late goals from Jonson Clarke-Harris ensured Peterborough held on to their place at the top of the table with a dramatic come-from-behind win. Thelo Aasgaard put Wigan ahead straight from a corner but the forward headed home with seven minutes left before burying a penalty to make it 2-1. Their joy was redoubled by events s at second-placed Lincoln, where Plymouth’s Joe Edwards made himself the hero by rifling home in stoppage time of a helter-skelter match to clinch a 4-3 win.

Tranmere bolstered their promotion hopes with a 3-1 win at Leyton Orient that proved to the final game in charge for O's coach Ross Embleton, whose departure was announced within minutes of full time. At the top, second-half goal from Liam O'Neil meant Cambridge retained their place at the top of the table with a 1-0 win at Port Vale, Cheltenham staying second despite Leicester loanee Calum Wright sealing their 2-0 win at Scunthorpe. Shaun Miller 94th-minute winner buoyed Bolton’s promotion hopes and deepened the misery of lowly Barrow, while a red card for Exeter’s Tom Parkes proved the turning point in his side’s trip to Crawley, Ashley Nadesan’s late goal sealing a 2-0 win for the hosts. Morecambe hindered their hopes with a shock defeat at home to mid-table Mansfield and Carlisle passed up the chance to draw closer to the playoff places with a 3-1 loss Oldham. Walsall sunk to a 2-1 home defeat against in-form Bradford, Andy Cook making the points safe for the visitors. Mark Beck’s late strike stole a win for Harrogate against rock-bottom Grimsby.

- Thu, 14 Jan 2021 08:00:33 +0000: Championship at halfway: miracles at Swansea and a Rooney-led revival - Stoke City | The Guardian
Norwich are top but have not hit full tilt and Neil Warnock is targeting a remarkable ninth promotion with Middlesbrough
Things could soon get snug at the summit but, for now, leaders Norwich have a four-point advantage over Swansea, where Steve Cooper continues to work minor miracles. For Daniel Farke the good news is that in 11 of the past 12 seasons, the team top at Christmas have clinched promotion. The bad news? For their rivals, it is that they are not yet at full tilt. Norwich have the same manager and almost an identical team to the one that secured this crown two years ago – the Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp has slotted into midfield – but it is largely a tried and trusted formula; Tim Krul in goal, Max Aarons marauding into the box, Emi Buendía pulling off preposterous passes, and Teemu Pukki putting the ball in the net.Continue reading...
