Wolves suffer setback at Burnley

Published Add your comment

Coca-Cola Championship leaders Wolves saw their automatic promotion hopes take a blow at Turf Moor as they lost 1-0 against Burnley.

A slip in form had seen Wolves' title bid slip recently and they found themselves behind early on when Chris McCann stole in at the far post to head a Wade Elliott cross past Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Birmingham leapfrogged Reading into second after beating a stubborn Nottingham Forest side 2-0 at St Andrews.

Preston climbed two places into fourth after earning a 1-0 win over Norwich at Deepdale thanks to Jon Parkin's fifth of the season.

And Bristol City's fine form continued at Ashton Gate where they beat strugglers Southampton 2-0 thanks to strikes from Dele Adebola and Ivan Sproule.

Nicky Bailey made up for missing a penalty to hit the winner in bottom side Charlton's 2-0 win over Plymouth at The Valley.

Doncaster earned the bragging rights from the South Yorkshire derby at the Keepmoat Stadium with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Rovers had the best of the play and earned their deserved win with the only goal just after the half-hour when Paul Heffernan headed home a James Coppinger cross.

Tommy Miller's first-half strike denied Blackpool their sixth away win of the season in their match with Ipswich at Portman Road.

Blackpool went ahead on the half hour when Alex Baptiste rounded off a flowing move to smash his shot past Richard Wright but Miller latched on to a loose ball into the box to equalise four minutes later and steal a point for the home side.
