Cardiff, Hull, Crystal Palace and Watford all win in promotion battle

Championship leaders Cardiff City continued their relentless push for promotion to the Premier League, but three of the chasing pack also won on Saturday.

Hull City battled past Charlton Athletic at the KC Stadium, but promotion rivals Crystal Palace and Watford were much more emphatic winners.

Ipswich Town picked up a welcome home win over Blackpool, while local rivals Nottingham Forest and Derby County were both frustrated at home.

Fraizer Campbell continued his impressive start to his Cardiff career by scoring a goal in each half as the leaders enjoyed a 2-1 home win over struggling Bristol City.

New signing Mohamed Gedo scored for the second home game in a row as the Egyptian's 33rd minute goal earned Hull City a 1-0 win over Charlton.

Glenn Murray was on target in each half as Crystal Palace produced a commanding display to hammer Middlesbrough 4-1 at Selhurst Park.

Troy Deeney was yet another player to help himself to a goal either side of half-time as the striker's brace was added to by Ikechi Anya and Almen Abdi in Watford's impressive 4-0 win at Birmingham City.

Bolton Wanderers played out the final stages with 10 men to secure a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest after Craig Davies had cancelled out Andy Reid's opener for the hosts.

Michael Chopra scored the only goal of the game five minutes after half-time as Ipswich posted a 1-0 home win over managerless Blackpool.

Wolves continue to hover just outside the relegation zone after a battling performance ground out a 0-0 draw at Derby.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
