Crystal Palace missed out on a win to boost their Coca-Cola Championship survival hopes after they dominated the first half against Blackpool but squandered a two-goal advantage after the break.

Nick Carle put Paul Hart's men ahead after three minutes and Darren Ambrose doubled the advantage in the 34th minute.

But Charlie Adam fizzed in a fine goal two minutes after the break and the Scot's cross led to Ben Burgess turning in a late close-range equaliser.

Martyn Woolford's superb strike settled the relegation scrap between Scunthorpe and Plymouth at Glanford Park in the hosts' favour.

Jamie Mackie put Argyle ahead after 28 minutes but their joy was short-lived as Garry Thompson netted an equaliser just four minutes later and Woolford then fired home a second-half winner from 25 yards.

Ipswich needed just four minutes to take the lead against Barnsley as Daryl Murphy gave Roy Keane's men a flying start at Portman Road - and 1-0 was how it remained.

Middlesbrough were held 1-1 by in-form Reading at the Riverside, Chris Killen's opener cancelled out by David Wheater's own goal.

The points were also shared on former QPR boss Paulo Sousa's return to Loftus Road where Antonio German bundled in from close range to cancel out Nathan Dyer's opener for Sousa's Swansea.

Sheffield Wednesday and Derby shared a goalless draw at Hillsborough.
