Championship round-up: Hull close the gap as Berg is denied first win
Wednesday 07 November 2012
Neither Middlesbrough nor Leicester could take full advantage of leaders Cardiff's implosion at Charlton, both being held to 0-0 draws at Nottingham Forest and Bolton respectively.
High-flying Hull beat fading Wolves 2-1, Sone Aluko and Jay Simpson put Steve Bruce's side two-up before a James Chester own-goal with 23 minutes to go gave the visitors hope.
Blackburn looked to have recorded their first victory under new manager Henning Berg, the recalled Danny Murphy putting them 2-1 ahead at Huddersfield, but a late Lee Novak goal, his second of the game, denied them.
