Joe Mason: Scored the winner as Cardiff beat Birmingham

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.

Chris Wood enjoyed a dream debut for Leicester as he scored twice inside the opening half-hour during a 6-1 rout of Huddersfield at the King Power Stadium.

Middlesbrough missed out on the chance to move into the automatic promotion spots after suffering a 3-1 defeat at Derby County.

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.

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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
