Leaders Brighton extended their unbeaten run to 14 matches with a 1-1 draw at fellow promotion chasers Reading.

The Seagulls took the lead through Jamie Murphy but Matej Vydra equalised 12 minutes from time for the hosts who stay seventh.

Despite earning a sixth draw of the season, Chris Hughton’s side’s lead at the top was cut to two points as Burnley and Hull closed the gap.

Two goals from Andre Gray saw the Clarets beat Huddersfield 2-1 at Turf Moor, while the Tigers extended their unbeaten run to eight matches with a 2-0 win at strugglers MK Dons.

Middlesbrough and Derby also kept the heat up on those at the top as victories keep the pre-season favourites for promotion one point off the top-two.

Boro strolled to victory against a Charlton side whose interim boss Karel Fraeye enjoyed a poor first game in charge as the Addicks slip to 23rd following a third consecutive 3-0 defeat and 10th match without a win.

Derby also won by the same 3-0 scoreline as Andreas Weimann scored his first goal for the Rams as they saw off bottom side Rotherham.

Birmingham were the only side in the top-six who failed to take full advantage of Brighton’s draw as they were beaten 2-0 at home by Wolves in the East Midlands derby.

Goals from Dave Edwards and Sheyi Ojo ended Kenny Jackett’s side three-game losing streak and saw their hosts slip from fourth to sixth.

On Friday, Brentford extended their winning run to four matches with a 1-0 victory over West London rivals QPR.

The Bees are up to 11th thanks to Marco Djuricin’s second-half strike, while the R’s have now failed to win five of their seven away matches.

Bristol City’s inconsistency struck once again as their recent performances were forgotten in a first-half horror show which saw Fulham take a 4-0 lead into the break at Ashton Gate.

Two goals from Moussa Dembele helped the Londoners on their way to extending their unbeaten run to five matches, while the hosts are still a point above the drop having lost just one of their previous five matches.

Sheffield Wednesday’s good form continued as they extended their unbeaten run to 10 matches in all competitions with a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

Fernando Forestieri’s second half goal was enough to take the Owls to within a point of the play offs and leave Forest four points above the drop after seven winless matches.

Bolton are still winless away from home but got the point which moves them off the bottom in a 0-0 Lancashire derby at Preston.

Neil Lennon’s side have still only won once this season but are unbeaten in their last two, while North End move up to 18th after extending their unbeaten run to four matches.

At Portman Road, Ipswich’s search for a win now reads seven matches after a goalless draw at home to a Cardiff side who have lost just twice all season but have drawn half their matches.
