Nottingham Forest’s Championship season continued with a win against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

A first win in nine-matches was secured by Forest when winning three-one at fellow strugglers Fulham.

Robert Tesche put Forest ahead midway through the first half with the chance to double this coming before half time when Tesche was fouled by Fulham’s Emerson Hyndman giving us a penalty with Henri Lansbury scoring the resulting spot kick.

Fulham pulled one back just past the hour when Matt Smith headed in but the points were confirmed when Lansbury finished off a Eric Lichaj cross for his second 20-minutes from time as Forest moved up to 17th following a first away win since 6th February.

Here’s a round up of the Championship action from the other games played in midweek….

These were the other results.

Friday 22nd April 2016
Preston 0-1 Burnley

Saturday 23rd April 2016
Derby 1-1 Sheff Wed
Blackburn 2-2 Bristol City
Cardiff 2-1 Bolton
Charlton 1-3 Brighton
Fulham 1-3 Nottm Forest
Huddersfield 1-1 Birmingham
Hull 2-2 Leeds
Middlesbrough 0-0 Ipswich
MK Dons 1-4 Brentford
QPR 1-1 Reading
Wolves 0-0 Rotherham

Burnley (one-nil) beat Lancashire rival Preston on Friday to move back to the top of the table with Middlesbrough’s (nil-nil) draw with Ipswich at the Riverside keeping the Clarets at the top of the Championship table.

This title is now in Burnley’s hands, however only goal-difference separates the top three!

Brighton’s (three-one) win at already relegated Charlton sees it a three-way tie at the top but the current leaders are now the favourites for the title (certainly to finish in the top two) with Boro and Albion still to play each other.

MK Dons’ (four-one) defeat to Brentford saw them fill the final relegation spot, which was highly probable anyway but now officially confirmed with a season-long stay in the Championship over.

Automatic promotion is going all the way, the play-offs are nearly sorted out now.

Cardiff (two-one) still have an outside hope of finishing in these play-offs after beating Bolton but Sheffield Wednesday’s (one-one) draw at Derby leaves the Owls on the verge of a top six finish but not yet assured of this.
