Championship: Wigan and Middlesbrough share draw as Derby extend lead

Malky Mackay was denied a dream start to his reign as Wigan manager as Middlesbrough came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw at DW Stadium in the Championship.

Shaun Maloney put the Latics ahead as they looked to bounce back from two straight defeats, but Patrick Bamford equalised in the second half as Boro spoilt the party.

Derby extended their advantage at the top of the table to three points thanks to a 2-1 win at Watford, as goals from Jordon Ibe and Craig Bryson either side of Gianni Munari's strike gave County victory.

Bournemouth twice led at home to Ipswich through Yann Kermorgant and Matt Ritchie but had to settle for a 2-2 draw as Teddy Bishop and Daryl Murphy replied for Town.

Blackburn overcame the dismissal of Tom Cairney as a Jordan Rhodes brace helped them come from behind to beat Leeds 2-1 at Ewood Park, with Souleymane Doukara having put United ahead.

Down at the bottom, Blackpool and Bolton shared the spoils in a 1-1 Bloomfield Road draw as Jacob Murphy put the Seasiders ahead but Chung-Yong Lee equalised for Wanderers.

Norwich and Brighton drew 3-3 in an action-packed encounter at Carrow Road, with Jonny Howson, Russell Martin and Gary Hooper netting for the Canaries, who had Bradley Johnson sent off late on, and the visitors responding through Bruno, Kazenga LuaLua and an Adrian Colunga penalty.

Clayton Donaldson scored the only goal of the game as Birmingham won 1-0 at Rotherham, while Britt Assombalonga, Matty Fryatt and Henri Lansbury struck in a 3-0 romp for Nottingham Forest at Wolves.

Charlton and Millwall drew 0-0 and the lunchtime Yorkshire derby between Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday also finished goalless, with Owls striker Stevie May going closest to breaking the deadlock with a 74th-minute shot that struck both crossbar and post.
