All the action and reports from the Championship

Burnley 1 Coventry 1

Chris Eagles grabbed a last-minute equaliser to deny Coventry as Burnley boosted their play-off hopes.

Leon Best, wearing a protective mask, nodded in Jordan Henderson’s right-wing cross at the far post for the lead after a mistake by Stephen Jordan (44).

The hosts upped the tempo and Martin Paterson’s strike was saved before Eagles ran on to a through ball and chipped over Keiren Westwood (90).

Doncaster 1 Bristol C 0

Doncaster stretched their unbeaten run to eight matches as they ended Bristol City’s five-game winning streak.

Paul Heffernan latched on to a through- ball and coolly slotted in against his former club (4), while Martin Woods was denied by City keeper Adriano Basso.

Gavin Williams almost grabbed an equaliser but Neil Sullivan made a good save and Michael McIndoe missed a great chance when clean through late on.

Sheff Wed 0 Barnsley 1

Jamal Campbell-Ryce’s stunning winner boosted Barnsley’s survival hopes as they won the South Yorkshire derby.

The Tykes midfielder bamboozled the Owls defence and slammed an angled left-footed drive into the top corner (38) in a disappointing first-half.

Jermaine Johnson went close for the hosts but his surging run and shot was beaten away by Heinz Muller and Marcus Tudgay’s shot was cleared off the line.

Watford 2 Swansea 0

Two first-half goals saw Watford move out of the relegation zone as they ended Swansea’s 16-match unbeaten run.

Tamas Priskin scored at the far post after being picked out by Tommy Smith (23), who then drilled a half-volley into the corner for the second (33).

Jason Scotland saw his shot saved by Hornets keeper Scott Loach, while Lee Williamson almost got a third with a volley which dipped just past the post.

Plymouth 1 C Palace 3

Crystal Palace picked up a first win in five league games thanks to a first- half blitz at Home Park.

Sean Scannell headed the opener (21) after Neil Danns met John Oster’s cross and Alan Lee tapped in the second after Scannell hit the post (28).

Oster then made it 3-0 from Paul Ifill’s pass (43). Gary Sawyer pulled one back from close range (68) but a late rally proved fruitless.
