The Sky Bet Championship was once again in full swing this weekend, here's a quick round-up of what happened.

Leicester City 2-2 Watford
Danny Drinkwater struck in the fourth minute of stoppage-time to rescue a point for Leicester, whose nine-match winning streak was brought to an end at the King Power Stadium.

Fernando Forestieri and Sean Murray gave Watford a 2-0 first-half lead, but Matty James halved the deficit before the break and Drinkwater hit a stunning equaliser in the 94th minute as Nigel Pearson’s side go 11 points clear at the top.

Burnley 3-1 Millwall
Burnley moved up to second on goal difference after coming from behind to beat Millwall at Turf Moor.

Martyn Woolford gave Ian Holloway’s side the lead, but a Danny Ings brace took his season tally to 24 and Dean Marney was also on target to give the Clarets the points.

Derby County 1-0 Queens Park Rangers
John Eustace’s first-half strike was enough to give Derby a huge win at the iPro Stadium.

Blackpool 1-1 Nottingham Forest
Andy Keogh’s late equaliser secured a point for Blackpool, as he cancelled out Jamaal Lascelles’ first-half effort at Bloomfield Road.

Reading 0-2 Sheffield Wednesday
Chris Maguire’s penalty and Benik Afobe’s first goal for Wednesday continued their recent good form under Stuart Gray, while 10-man Reading were hampered when they had Alex Pearce sent off early at the Madjeski.

Barnsley 2-2 Ipswich Town
Goals from Chris O’Grady and Tomasz Cywka put Barnsley two up after 74 minutes, but Ipswich replied through Christophe Berra and David McGoldrick to save a point at Oakwell.

Middlesbrough 0-0 Blackburn Rovers
Paul Robinson was the hero for Blackburn and kept Middlesbrough at bay at the Riverside, as the hosts recorded their third straight goalless draw.

Yeovil Town 1-2 Leeds United
Despite the recent off-field problems, Leeds seemed unaffected on it as they came from behind at Huish Park.
 
Ishmael Miller put Yeovil in front but later missed a penalty which proved costly for the bottom club, as goals from Ross McCormack and Stephen Warnock gave Brian McDermott’s men another good win.

Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 Doncaster Rovers
Leandro Ulloa was once again the hero for Brighton against 10-man Doncaster, who had Billy Sharp sent off for violent conduct at the Amex Stadium.

Adam Clayton put an end to a run of four defeats, as Huddersfield claimed the points at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers 2-2 Bournemouth
Bournemouth came from behind to claim a draw and heap more pressure on Dougie Freedman at the Reebok.
Chung-Yong Lee and Lukas Jutkiewicz gave the hosts a 2-0 lead, before Lewis Grabban and Simon Francis rescued a point for Eddie Howe’s men.
