Championship roundup: Aleksandar Mitrovic hits three as Fulham romp

  • Fulham go top after 6-2 thrashing of Bristol City
  • Luton beat Bournemouth; Derby move off bottom

Aleksandar Mitrovic took his Championship goal tally to 27 for the season after hitting a first-half hat-trick in Fulham’s 6-2 thrashing of Bristol City at Craven Cottage.

The win, which came on the back of the Cottagers’ 7-0 victory at Reading in midweek, ensured Marco Silva’s side took full advantage of Bournemouth’s earlier defeat at Luton to move top of the table.

Championship roundup: Blackburn frustrated by dogged Huddersfield

  • Tony Mowbray incensed with referee after goalless draw
  • Valérien Ismaël furious at the end of West Brom 1-1 Cardiff

Tony Mowbray described the officiating at Ewood Park as “embarrassing” after Blackburn’s six-match winning run came to an end following a goalless draw with Huddersfield. Nullified by the visitors’ defensive solidarity, Blackburn were restricted to few chances, with Reda Khadra’s strike against the frame of the goal the closest they came.

Mowbray was incensed that the referee Keith Stroud waved away Ben Brereton Díaz’s first-half penalty claims and was booked for his protests. Blackburn are up to second in the Championship table after making it six unbeaten at home, but they failed to take full advantage of postponements for Bournemouth and Fulham, and Mowbray made his feelings clear.

Ten January transfer targets – from Mbappé to Raphinha and Vlahovic

With the European window opening on 1 January, Anthony Martial and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also be on the move

He may have ruled out a move in January but there remains a slim chance that the France forward could join Real Madrid this month after their failed attempts to sign him in the summer. Mbappé is entering the final six months of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and can therefore sign a pre-contract agreement with the Spanish giants, although talks are said to be on hold until after the two clubs meet in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League on 9 March. Whether Madrid will attempt to force the issue before then remains to be seen.

Boxing Day 1963 goal feast is famous but what happened two days later?

The results on 26 December 1963 – 66 goals in 10 games – are celebrated every year. They are only half of the story

By Richard Foster for The Football Mine

As the frenetic Christmas schedule swings into action, players in England are very much in the minority among major European leagues in readying themselves for the customary glut of games squeezed into the tightest of holiday schedules. While the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 are embarking on a winter break, Premier League and Football League clubs face the prospect of three games in a week, starting with the traditional Boxing Day fixture. Until the late 1950s, there was even a full programme of games on Christmas Day itself, as one of the few public holidays that allowed working people to attend matches.

Boxing Day has become enshrined in English football culture as a much-loved curiosity of the fixture list. One reason why Boxing Day matches gained popularity was the extraordinary events of 1963, when 10 matches in the First Division produced a scarcely credible 66 goals, a feat that is still commemorated to this day. What fans may not know is what happened in the fixtures that followed two days later on 28 December. Many of the games were rematches from Boxing Day and there were some stunning turnarounds.

Championship roundup: Ben Brereton Díaz stars again as Blackburn hit four

  • In-form striker shines in 4-0 demolition of Birmingham
  • Bristol City v Huddersfield delayed after fans throw missiles

Ben Brereton Díaz scored twice as his fine run of form continued in Blackburn’s 4-0 win over Birmingham, lifting his side to third in the Championship.

Blackburn needed just six minutes to open up their opposition, with John Buckley scoring his first of the campaign. Although the visitors rallied towards the end of the half and were unlucky when Chuks Aneke’s strike hit the crossbar, Blackburn ruthlessly put them to the sword with three second-half goals.
