Nottingham Forest returned to their winning ways tonight with a good 1-0 win at home to Sheffield United, but Cardiff City held West Brom 1-1 in South Wales.
Nottingham Forest got a dream start at home to Sheffield United when Robert Earnshaw put Forest ahead after only 4 minutes.
Then after 46 minutes Sheffield had Darius Henderson sent off, which made it a little easier For Nottingham Forest to get only their second win in their last five league games.
At Cardiff, the home side got off to a good start when Peter Whittingham converted a penalty after only 8 minutes, but then just before the break, Gianni Zuiverloon equalized and there were not more goals in the second half.
Considering it was at Cardiff, it was a decent point for West Brom, and that solitary point puts them back at the top of the Championship on 60 points, the same as Newcastle, but WBA have a slightly better goal difference.
Nottingham Forest are on 58 points, but Newcastle have two games in hand on Forest and one game in hand on WBA.
That game is of course tomorrow night against Coventry City, and we have to hope we can get the win.
In other Championship games tonight Blackpool beat Middlesbrough at home 2-0, and Leicester City could only draw away 1-1 at Bristol City, and Swansea, who played so well on Saturday, were also held 1-1 at Plymouth Argyle.
