Danny Ings scored both goals in Burnley's 2-0 win over QPR.

A review of Saturday's action in the Sky Bet Championship.

Danny Ings struck both goals as Burnley won their top-of-the-table clash with previously-unbeaten QPR 2-0 to move three points clear at the Sky Bet Championship summit.

Ings broke the deadlock in the 65th minute and he added a second from the penalty spot with two minutes left as Burnley claimed their seventh successive league win while ending the last remaining unbeaten record in the division.

QPR drop down to third following the loss, with Leicester moving into the top two following their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

David Nugent put Leicester ahead in the 18th minute and then Jamie Vardy (64) restored the home side's lead after Marc Pugh (38) had levelled for Bournemouth.

Vardy's strike proved to be the winner with Bournemouth's hopes of an equaliser being hit by Elliott Ward's sending off in the 64th minute.

Blackpool climbed to fourth but slipped eight points off top spot after being held 2-2 at home by Blackburn - a fifth draw in six games for Paul Ince's side - in a fiery Lancashire derby that saw both teams end with 10 men.

The hosts had looked on course for a victory as goals from Tom Ince (13, pen) and Dan Gosling (39) put them 2-1 up heading into the closing stages, with Blackburn having earlier equalised through a Jordan Rhodes spot-kick

However, after ex-Seasider DJ Campbell and Jack Robinson both saw red after a melee in the box involving all the outfield players late on, Rovers snatched a last-gasp draw when home substitute Steven Davies headed into his own net.

Blackpool remain a point above Reading, who were also denied a win by a late equaliser in the 1-1 draw with 10-man Millwall.

Sean Morrison's early header put Reading ahead but Millwall, despite losing Jimmy Abdou to a second yellow card, salvaged a draw through Liam Trotter's stoppage-time penalty.

Nottingham Forest are down to sixth after suffering a surprise 3-1 defeat at Yeovil.

Forest were unbeaten in seven games but Yeovil claimed a deserved win to climb off the bottom of the table thanks to first-half goals from Ed Upson (eight and 40) and Byron Webster (43).

Forest replied through Nathaniel Chalobah (42) but also missed a 17th-minute penalty from Simon Cox.

Jon Stead's first goal in his second spell at hometown club Huddersfield clinched a thrilling 3-2 derby win over Leeds.

Matt Smith's second-minute strike put Leeds ahead but Huddersfield replied through goals from Danny Ward (10) and visiting defender Tom Lees, who put through his own net in the 63rd minute.

Dexter Blackstock, signed on loan from Forest this week, made it 2-2 when he headed home a 73rd-minute equaliser with his first touch after stepping off the bench, but Stead's strike four minutes later helped the Terriers clinch their first win in six league games.

The three other Championship games on Saturday finished in 1-1 draws.

Matty Fryatt's 60th-minute equaliser cancelled out Marcus Pedersen's 16th-minute opener but Sheffield Wednesday could not push on for their first league win of the season at the expense of Barnsley, and Dave Jones' side now prop up the table.

Bolton and Ipswich also shared the points, Medo Kamara (65) and David McGoldrick (73) the men on the mark, while Derby took the lead at home to Birmingham through Jamie Ward (39) but were pegged back by Lee Novak (66).

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
