Championship Round-Up: Leicester go top thanks to Millwall victory while Burnley suffer defeat at Huddersfield
Elsewhere there were wins for Blackpool and Yeovil while Barnsley's 3-0 defeat to Birmingham sees David Flitcroft sacked
Saturday 30 November 2013
Jamie Vardy took his Sky Bet Championship goal tally to six with a match-winning brace in Leicester's 3-0 victory over Millwall which lifted the Foxes to the top of the table.
Lloyd Dyer claimed Leicester's other goal in a one-sided contest at the King Power Stadium.
Burnley lost 2-1 at Huddersfield, Oliver Norwood and James Vaughan from the penalty spot with the crucial home goals.
Danny Ings reply came too late for the visitors, who also ended the match with 10 men following the last-minute dismissal of Michael Duff.
QPR slipped up 2-1 at Doncaster, Harry Redknapp's side undone by strikes from forward Theo Robinson and defender Paul Quinn.
Charlie Austin had given Rangers the lead but they were unable to hold on and Quinn's effort a minute from time snatched the points for Rovers.
Blackpool's 2-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday keeps them fourth in the table, courtesy of goals in each half from Ricardo Fuller and Dan Gosling, while Wednesday suffered their seventh defeat of the season and sit second from bottom.
Yeovil climbed off the table's foot with a 3-0 away win over Watford thanks to goals from Byron Webster, Ishmael Miller and Joe Edwards.
Barnsley now prop up the league after their 3-0 defeat to Birmingham - and the south Yorkshire club responded by sacking manager David Flitcroft soon after the match.
Former Bury and Rochdale midfielder Flitcroft, 39, was in charge of the club for less than a year after taking over from Keith Hill in December 2012.
Flitcroft, appointed permanent boss after two wins in three games as caretaker, guided the Tykes to safety on the final day of last season, but Saturday's reverse - their 10th in 17 league games - was one too many for the Oakwell board.
Blues right-back Paul Caddis scored his first-ever goal for Birmingham, then followed it up with his second before Nikola Zigic competed the comprehensive win.
Tommy Spurr's header was enough to hand Blackburn a 1-0 victory over Leeds.
Ashley Barnes' equaliser claimed Brighton a point in their lunchtime clash at Bournemouth. Matt Richie scored first for the Cherries, with the game ending 1-1.
Tommy Smith headed the winner for Ipswich in a 1-0 success at Charlton, while Middlesbrough saw off Bolton by the same scoreline thanks to Grant Leadbitter's penalty.
