CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP: Fulham breeze past Birmingham City 4-1, Stoke miss out on the chance to top the table and Luton Town rescue a point through a last-gasp Danny Hylton goal

  • Fulham continued their blistering start to the Championship with a 4-1 win 
  • Stoke City drew 1-1 with Barnsley, missing out on going level on points at the top
  • A late goal from Danny Hylton salvaged a point for Luton Town against Bristol
  • Coventry moved into fourth after a Viktor Gyokeres goal secured a 1-0 win 











Marco Silva continued his blistering start in the Championship with Fulham as they breezed past Birmingham City 4-1 to sit top of the table.

The west London club have won five of their seven league matches this season under boss Silva, following relegation from the Premier League.

That winning form continued last night in a comfortable victory away from home. Denis Odoi’s opener in the 10th minute deflated the Blues, before Aleksandar Mitrovic added a second on the stroke of half-time.

Harry Wilson applied the gloss in the second half to seal victory and have the Cottagers lead the way on goal difference. Troy Deeney scored a consolation penalty.

Stoke missed the chance of going level on points at the top by drawing 1-1 with Barnsley. Sam Surridge put the Potters ahead on 17 minutes but Cauley Woodrow equalised before half-time. 

The late sending-off of Tommy Smith added to a disappointing night for Michael O’Neill’s men.

A Viktor Gyokeres goal ensured Coventry continued their promising run to beat Cardiff 1-0 and move up to fourth in the table.

Luton Town rescued a point against Bristol City after a last-gasp Danny Hylton goal earned his side a 1-1 draw.

The home side looked to be on their way to victory when Nathan Baker scored but Hylton had other ideas.
