Doncaster returned to the foot of the Coca-Cola Championship despite claiming a creditable 1-1 draw at fellow strugglers Watford.

Tommy Smith (31) gave the Hornets the lead before Steve Brooker (70) levelled.

Rovers slip to 24th spot due to Nottingham Forest's 1-0 defeat of Barnsley at the City Ground, which came courtesy of Joe Garner's 36th-minute header.

The bottom three is completed by Charlton, who could only register a 0-0 draw with fellow strugglers Southampton at The Valley.

Norwich are a place above the relegation zone after they came out on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller against Sheffield Wednesday.

Sammy Clingan's penalty (43) after Marcus Tudgay's foul put the Canaries ahead at Hillsborough, but Tony McMahon (51) and Leon Clarke (55) turned the match in favour of the Owls.

Leroy Lita (62) equalised only for Tudgay (72) to make up for his earlier misdemeanour with a close-range headed winner, and the visitors had John Kennedy dismissed for a professional foul late on.
