Posh shock Leicester; Cardiff held to draw

Leaders Cardiff were frustrated at Huddersfield, while rock-bottom Peterborough shocked second-placed Leicester in the Championship on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Barnsley enjoyed a dramatic win at Middlesbrough, while Leeds were pegged back by Wolves as the strugglers bagged a welcome point.

Rock-bottom Peterborough shocked second-placed Leicester by halting their five-game winning streak with a surprise 2-1 triumph at London Road. Grant McCann's 88th-minute winner sealed the upset for Posh to deny the Foxes the chance to close the gap on Cardiff at the top.

Leaders Cardiff were frustrated to a goalless draw at managerless Huddersfield to prevent them from building on their advantage at the summit of the table.

Jason Scotland's 76th-minute winner saw Barnsley triumph 3-2 in a dramatic encounter at Middlesbrough, condemning the hosts to a fifth straight defeat.

A poor day for the leading sides continued in the late kick-off as high-flying Hull City went down 1-0 at Brighton thanks to Vicente's late goal, which keeps the Seagulls very much in contention for a play-off spot.

Sheffield Wednesday came from two goals behind to peg Derby to a 2-2 draw at Hillsborough and stretch their unbeaten run to five games, with goals from Leroy Lita and Miguel Angel Llera sealing a share of the spoils.

Managerless Blackpool pulled off a comeback at home to Millwall as goals from Tom Ince and Nathan Delfouneso handed the Seasiders a 2-1 win.

Lowly Wolves narrowly sidestepped defeat late on against Leeds as Danny Batth's stoppage-time equaliser sealed a 2-2 home draw at Molineux.

Manager Dougie Freedman's changes proved inspired for Bolton as two of his second-half substitutes - Craig Davies and David N'Gog - scored to complete a 2-1 comeback win over Burnley, who had gone ahead through David Edgar's opener.

Steve Davies and Marvin Elliott scored in the second half for Bristol City to inspire their 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest, who will not come under the care of new manager Billy Davies until Monday.

Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson's second-half own-goal was enough to give Blackburn a 1-0 win at home to Ipswich, who remain close to the relegation places.

Charlton appeared to have snatched a late triumph at home to Birmingham when Yann Kermorgant scored two minutes from time but the Blues came back for a 1-1 draw thanks to Wade Elliott's stoppage-time strike.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
