Review

Stuart Dallas netted the winner and Bailey Peacock-Farrell saved a last-gasp penalty as Leeds kept the pressure on Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich with a 1-0 victory over struggling Reading at Elland Road.

Similar to against Bristol City on Saturday, United improved after the interval and the Royals finally buckled under the constant pressure when Dallas struck on the hour mark.

Dallas' Northern Ireland team-mate Peacock-Farrell then took centre stage in a dramatic finale, securing back-to-back wins by saving Marc McNulty's penalty.

Marcelo Bielsa's side leapfrogged Middlesbrough into second place in the table, moving one point behind Norwich, ahead of Saturday's trip to fellow high-flyers Sheffield United.

The defeat turned up the heat on Reading manager Paul Clement. The Royals remain above the relegation zone on goal difference alone following a run of one win in six matches.

A determined Hull belied their lowly status to hold Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich to a goalless draw at a wet and windy KCOM Stadium.

Missing suspended striker Fraizer Campbell, the Tigers showed plenty of invention but lacked the final touch to pull off a shock win their industry deserved.

Rotherham were denied a valuable three points as QPR scored late on to earn a 2-2 draw.

A frantic start to the game saw three goals scored in the opening 15 minutes but Luke Freeman's late header ensured a share of the points.

Sheffield United stayed in touch with the Championship's top two with a 3-2 win at strugglers Brentford.

An Ezri Konsa own goal, a sublime Oliver Norwood strike and a Leon Clarke second-half winner were enough to consign the Bees to their sixth defeat in seven games.

Goals from Neal Maupay and Romaine Sawyers' second half deflected strike were not enough to ease the pressure on new Brentford head coach Thomas Frank.

Marcus Tavernier's second-half strike extended Middlesbrough's unbeaten run to eight matches, but a 1-1 draw at Preston saw Tony Pulis' side drop out of the automatic promotion positions in the Championship.

Tavernier levelled in the first minute of the second half after Alan Browne had fired Preston into a first-half lead they fully warranted.

A rare goal from Tom Lees proved to be the difference as Sheffield Wednesday overcame Bolton 1-0 at Hillsborough.

Lees struck 12 minutes into the second half as the Owls ended a run of six Sky Bet Championship games without a win and secured a first home victory since August.

Defeat leaves Bolton second bottom of the table and without a win in nine games.
