Paul Jewell's first npower Championship match in charge of Ipswich ended in a 2-1 defeat by Millwall despite Tamas Priskin, fresh from his Carling Cup winner over Arsenal in midweek, giving the Tractor Boys a 25th-minute lead.

Danny Schofield levelled on the stroke of half-time and the prolific Steve Morison grabbed a 76th-minute winner for Millwall.

There was better news for another new manager as Phil Brown's Preston grabbed a 1-1 draw with Leicester thanks to Iain Hume's injury-time equaliser. Aiyegbeni Yakubu had given Leicester the lead on the hour mark on his debut.

Preston remain seven points adrift of safety but Middlesbrough eased their relegation fears by crushing Bristol City 4-0 at Ashton Gate.

Kalifa Cisse's own goal (43) plus efforts from former City striker Leroy Lita (58) and Barry Robson (77) put Boro in control and the home side's miserable afternoon was complete when David James was sent off for a professional foul and Lita converted the penalty (90).

There were two red cards at the KC Stadium as nine-man Barnsley were beaten 2-0 by Hull. Matt Fryatt (66) netted the first from the spot after Stephen Foster's red card and Jason Shackell was also dismissed before Robert Koren's late second.

In the remaining game in the Championships, struggling Sheffield United held Coventry to a goalless draw at the Ricoh Arena.
