Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson endured an afternoon to forget at former club Leicester City, while Hull City and Middlesbrough suffered frustration on their travels.

Brighton & Hove Albion and Blackburn Rovers were impressive winners, Leeds United battled past Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic beat Watford in a seven-goal thriller.

Joe Mason's 41st minute goal was enough for Cardiff to beat Birmingham City 1-0 at St Andrew's to cement their position at the head of the standings.

Blackburn made it back-to-back wins since the sacking of Henning Berg after inflicting a 3-0 defeat on new Nottingham Forest boss Alex McLeish at Ewood Park.

Ipswich Town's resurgence under Mick McCarthy was given a jolt as the in-demand Craig Mackail-Smith was among the scorers in Brighton's 3-0 success at Portman Road.

Luciano Becchio converted a 66th minute penalty as Leeds beat Bolton 1-0 at Elland Road to close to within two points of the play-off places.

Tommy Rowe scored an 87th minute winner as Peterborough beat managerless Barnsley 2-1 at London Road to climb out of the bottom three.

Charlton edged a topsy-turvy game at Vicarage Road as Yann Kermorgant scored a goal in each half during the 4-3 victory over Watford.

Adam Smith pounced 15 minutes from time to hand Millwall a 2-1 home win over Bristol City, who are off the bottom of the table only on goal difference.
