The Championship season continued with the latest round of matches played over the weekend.

Leeds made it back-to-back wins and further eased the pressure on Garry Monk with the two-nil win at Cardiff merely increasing the pressure on his counterpart at the Bluebirds Paul Trollope after a two-nil win at the Cardiff city Stadium.

Pressure is something Owen Coyle is also under at Blackburn but a first win in the league would have eased this a little as Rovers came from behind to beat Rotherham four-two at Ewood Park in the end.

A week that saw Brentford win at Brighton and draw at Aston Villa ended with the Bees recording a resounding five-nil win over Preston at Griffin Park with Brighton’s recovery from that defeat the weekend prior carried on with them seeing off Burton one-nil at the Pirelli Stadium.

Huddersfield not only retained the lead at the top of the table they extended it with a recovery to a first defeat seeing a two-one win over QPR increase the lead over Newcastle, who lost two-nil to Wolves, and Barnsley, who lost against Reading, who were in second and third prior to the weekend.

Who was the MotM? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
