Championship round-up: Doherty double keeps Wolves clear at top

Wolverhampton Wanderers' Matt Doherty did his bit to keep his side top of the pile

A header from Galway youngster Ryan Manning and Jake Bidwell's deflected effort put the visitors 2-0 up at half-time.

James Chester did pull one back in the dying moments, but that proved little consolation to Steve Bruce as he rued the decision to name an unchanged side from the one which beat the leaders, Wolverhampton Wanderers, on Saturday.

Wolves got their Premier League promotion push firmly back on track with a convincing 3-0 Sky Bet Championship win against Reading at Molineux.

"But I'm still going to tip Cardiff because I still think they've got experience, they've got goals and I'm still tipping them to go up in second spot".

The top three - Wolves, Cardiff and Villa - all have an extra game to fit in on Tuesday after their matches scheduled for 3 March were postponed because of bad weather.

Nuno Espírito Santo's side had won only one of their previous five games but victory ensured they stayed ahead of Cardiff in the race for the title after the Bluebirds won at Brentford.


Hull City eased their relegation fears as they hit back from 3-1 down to beat Norwich City 4-3 - Abel Hernandez netting two penalties before Harry Wilson's victor.

Sol Bamba, Callum Paterson and Kenneth Zohore scored for Neil Warnock's side after Neal Maupay had opened the scoring for Brentford.

"We've still got 10 games to go and all we've done is give ourselves a chance", he said. "We needed another game as quickly as possible".

Former Shamrock Rovers player Enda Stevens, who was called up to the Irish squad last week. opened the scoring in the first half before David Brooks' goal after the break helped lift them to seventh.

Hull City picked up another big win at the bottom of the table, but Barnsley were held and Burton Albion lost on a dramatic evening at either end of the division.

Barnsley inched three points clear of the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw with Norwich.
