Jamie Mackie gave Nottingham Forest a dream start, and Andy Reid and Henri Lansbury, also scored in a 3-0 home win over Bolton.

Marvin Emnes scored a last-minute equaliser as Middlesbrough snatched a 1-1 draw at home to Blackpool, who dropped points for the first time this season.

Reading twice let a two-goal lead slip at the Madejski Stadium as Diego Fabbrini netted a last-minute equaliser to earn Watford a 3-3 draw.

Tom Hitchcock was also a last minute scorer as his goal clinched a 1-0 win for QPR over Ipswich at Loftus Road.

Andrew Crofts' 73rd minute goal provided Oscar Garcia with his first win as Brighton manager following a 1-0 success at Birmingham.

James Vaughan's 57th minute goal handed Huddersfield a first three points of the campaign at Millwall, who have now lost all three matches.
