Clarets hit back for Swans points

Swansea's faltering form in the npower Championship continued as they threw away a lead at Turf Moor as an Ashley Williams own-goal and Chris Eagles penalty gave Burnley a 2-1 win after Fabio Borini had given the Swans an early second half lead.

Leeds also seem to be stuttering as they attempt to keep their play-off bid alive. An 88th-minute own goal from Troy Deeney earned them a 2-2 draw at home to Watford.

Luciano Becchio had headed Leeds in front but their vulnerability at the back was shown again as Lee Hodson and Andy Weimann goals looked to have given Watford a great win at Elland Road before the own goal meant they shared the spoils.

Hull are also still firmly in the play-off picture after a Matty Fryatt double led them to a 3-1 victory over Doncaster at the KC Stadium.

Richard Garcia's tap-in gave the Tigers the lead, but Doncaster hit back only seven minutes later through Franck Moussa before former Leicester striker Fryatt took centre stage to score a brace and move Hull level on points with seventh placed Nottingham Forest.

Middlesbrough had Scott McDonald to thank after he headed a late equaliser to give them a 1-1 draw against Barnsley who had Paul McShane sent off.

The Robins appeared to be on course for a first win in eight away from home after a 22nd minute Marlon Harewood goal.

Ipswich won 1-0 at Bristol City despite playing over half of the game with 10 men after Lee Martin was sent off for a late foul on Kalifa Cisse just before the interval.

Josh Carson's strike, his third goal in his last two games, proved to be the difference for Paul Jewell's side.
