Bristol City had the worst home record of any team in the Football League going into their npower Championship clash with Reading but Danny Haynes' half-volley (28) gave them a 1-0 win at Ashton Gate.

Scunthorpe edged out Preston by the odd goal in five. Chris Dagnall's fifth goal of the season after just four minutes put the visitors ahead at Deepdale but Craig Morgan equalised from Paul Parry's corner (58) and was also involved as Billy Jones made it 2-1 (64).

Michael O'Connor's free-kick levelled things up within a minute and Martyn Woolford's goal (82) settled a thrilling clash 3-2 in the visitors' favour.

A Kris Commons double helped Derby win by the same 3-2 scoreline at Doncaster. On-loan West Brom frontman Luke Moore scored his first goal since December to give Derby a 1-0 half-time lead at Doncaster and Commons doubled their lead (59).

Dean Shiels levelled matters with two goals in three minutes but Commons grabbed the clincher.

Burnley hammered Barnsley 3-0 at Turf Moor. Chris Eagles put them ahead from long range five minutes after half-time against Barnsley and added a second goal from the penalty spot (66) before Chris Iwelumo (83) rounded off the win.

On-loan Tottenham full-back Kyle Naughton and striker Steve Howard earned Leicester a 2-1 win at Leeds, for whom Luciano Becchio was on target.

Watford had struggled to break through a stubborn Ipswich defence but two goals in three minutes from Stephen McGinn and Marvin Sordell just before half-time put them 2-0 up.

David Norris pulled one back with a header but the Hornets held on.

Liam Lawrence's penalty earned Portsmouth victory at Millwall, while Sheffield United's Mark Yeates sunk former loan employers Hull.
