Brighton & Hove Albion went back to the top of the Championship tonight with a 3-2 win at Blackburn Rovers after the home side’s Gordon Greer was sent off after 74 minutes for picking up two yellow cards, but it’s rare the south coast side concede two goals in a game.
And third placed Reading were beaten 2-0 at Leeds United with Norwich getting back on the winning track with a good 1-0 win at home to Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa side.
Leeds are in 5th place on 35 points and Huddersfield Town won 1-0 at Burton Albion to remain in 4th place on 36 points.
Chris Hughton – Brighton beat Blackburn 3-2
Sheffield Wednesday had a good 2-0 home win at home to Barnsley to remain in 6th place in the league on 34 points.
So if Newcastle can beat Wigan tomorrow night we go 9 points ahead of 3rd placed Reading – that’s the bottom line.
