          Drama at the top of the Championship as League One leadership changes once more.

          Brentford: Moving within six points off the automatic promotion places with three wins in their last four, Brentford do it in style over London rivals QPR with goals from Said Benrahama, Brain Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins after just 33 minutes securing a 3-1 win.

          Rotherham: Coming out of nowhere, Rotherham take top spot in League One with a hugely impressive 3-1 win away at a very strong Oxford. Two goals from Kyle Vassell help give Rotherham the league lead on goal difference as the division has gone from Ipswich’s to Wycombe’s and now it might be The Millers´ turn.

          Fulham: Fulham also close in on the automatic promotion places with the top teams again dropping points. A goal from now permanent signing Ivan Cavaleiro secured a 1-0 win away at Hull that keeps them a point behind Brentford in fourth.

          Sheffield Wednesday: Arresting a worrying run of three back-to-back losses, Wednesday move back into the play-off places with a stunning 2-0 win away at Leeds thanks to two very late goals.

          Doncaster: One of the third division’s early front runners, Doncaster moved themselves well out of the promotion picture. Now, with three wins on the bounce, Darren Moore’s side are right back in the thick of it with a 2-0 win away at Bristol Rovers today.

          Sunderland: A season that looked like it was gradually going off the rails, Sunderland go unbeaten in five and back into the top six with a humbling 4-0 home win over previous leaders Wycombe.

          Plymouth: There were previous signs they could get involved in the play-off push, and with four wins in five, Plymouth join a glut of five teams on 44 points all goal difference away from third place and automatic promotion. A comfortable 3-0 away win at Carlisle saw a Luke Jephcott brace and a jump up to fourth.

          Cheltenham: Leading the pack of sides on 44 points are Cheltenham who currently sit third thanks to a 3-1 home win over Walsall.

          Swindon: You could have excused Swindon for having a drop off without 23 goal Eoin Doyle for the first time since his recall by Bradford, instead, they rack up a solid 3-1 win over a decent Crewe side to remain top in League Two.

          Leeds: With three minutes to play, Leeds looked set to drop two points, but stay top again matching West Brom, however, a pair of late goals from Sheffield Wednesday could change things dramatically as the gap to third continues to shorten to six points.

          West Brom: Giving up the lead twice against Charlton, West Brom sink to some of the worst form in the Championship, now winless in five, but thanks to Leeds loss, they actually move back into first place.

          QPR: They started the season as play-off contenders, but QPR are dropping well out of the picture after a frustrating loss away to Brentford in the early kick-off.

          Hull: Starting to show some consistency to close in on the top six, Hull failed a tough test against one of the league’s best sides by losing at home to Fulham.

          Wycombe: A frankly miserable run looks no closer to ending for Wycombe who are now winless in five with four defeats seeing their League One lead evaporate after all the hard work getting there. It’s not been the easiest run of games but a 4-0 against Sunderland is verging on crisis mode.

          Peterborough: Much like Wycombe, Peterborough’s form has been pretty dreadful. Without a win in five, a 0-0 at home to Gillingham will be hard to take for a team that previously couldn’t stop scoring.
