Bristol City are still yet to earn a point this season following their promotion last campaign, this time losing 4-2 at home to Brentford.

Bristol took the lead through Jonathan Kodjia inside two minutes, before Alan Judge equalised for the Bees. Aaron Wilbraham put the Robins back in front, but after Luke Freeman was sent off, the home side fell apart. Derrick Williams put the ball in his own net, before goals from Andre Gray and Phillip Hofmann made it 4-2.

Matt Taylor’s superb free-kick rescued a point for Burnley as they came from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Birmingham. Jon Toral’s left-footed strike put the away side 1-0 up, before Michael Keane equalised for the Clarets. Paul Caddis made it 2-1 with a penalty, prior to Taylor’s excellent set-piece finish.

Diego Fabbrini was the star of the show as Middlesbrough easily dispatched Bolton 3-0 at the Riverside. Fabbrini opened the scoring before setting up the first of two goals from Kike and played a hand in the Spaniard’s second as his shot was saved, allowing his team-mate to tap in the rebound.

QPR and Cardiff drew 2-2 at Loftus Road. Clint Hill nodded home from a corner after some terrible marking from the Welsh club to make it 1-0. The home side then made it 2-0 when Charlie Austin scored a simple tap-in from another corner. Cardiff captain Sean Morrison sparked the comeback with an excellent header from yet another set-piece, before a stoppage-time volley from Scott Malone levelled the scores.

Brighton maintain their 100% start, with goals from Sam Baldock and a Tomer Hemed penalty in stoppage-time seeing them beat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage, and Matt Mills and Michail Antonio made sure that Forest won their first game of the season as they beat Rotherham 2-1 at the City Ground.

Ross Wallace got his first goal for Sheffield Wednesday to put them 1-0 up away at Ipswich, but strikes from Freddy Sears and Tommy Smith earned three points for Mick McCarthy’s side.

Elsewhere, goals from Tony Watt and Chris Martin ensured that both Derby and Charlton both gained a point, and a goal each for Nahki Wells and Nathan Delfouneso meant a point apiece for Huddersfield and Blackburn.

Paul Gallagher scored the only goal as Preston beat MK Dons 1-0 away from home and, finally, Wolves drew 1-1 with Hull on Sunday whilst Reading and Leeds finished goalless.
