Huddersfield go into the international break on top of the Sky Bet Championship table after beating Ipswich 1-0 at Portman Road to claim their eighth win of the campaign.

David Wagner's side took the lead after club-record signing Christopher Schindler headed home Aaron Mooy's corner in the second half.

The Terriers would then produce a dogged defensive display to hold on and take all three points back to West Yorkshire.

Ipswich's run without a goal extended to over 400 minutes and they have now gone four games without a win.

Norwich striker Cameron Jerome's quick-fire goal and a sublime finish from Robbie Brady secured a 2-1 Sky Bet Championship victory at Wolves.

Jerome grabbed his fifth goal of the season after only one minute 45 seconds and Brady grabbed his first of the campaign in the 73rd minute as Norwich bounced back from their amazing late defeat at Newcastle United in their previous game.

They did, though, have to survive a late scare when Dave Edwards gave Wolves hope by reducing the arrears with 10 minutes left.

Norwich's latest success was their fifth in their last six league matches and moved them back into second place in the table as they continue to make a determined bid to make an instant return to the Premier League.

In the early kick-off, Idrissa Sylla headed a late winner to help QPR earn a 2-1 victory over West London neighbours Fulham, ensuring Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ended a difficult week on high.

Manager Hasselbaink had been caught up in the Daily Telegraph's investigation into alleged corruption in football - he denies any wrongdoing - but took his place in the dugout and saw his QPR side win at Craven Cottage for the first time since 1980.

QPR were fortunate in victory as Fulham missed two penalties, first through Tom Cairney's saved spot-kick before Sone Aluko's penalty hit the post.

After missing a host of chances Fulham were punished as substitute Sylla headed home in the 87th minute.

Conor Washington's first league goal for QPR had opened the scoring before Tim Ream levelled up, only for Sylla to win it late on.

Tammy Abraham continued his blistering form in front of goal after helping Bristol City come from behind to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 at Ashton Gate.

Apostolos Vellios gave Forest a first-half lead before on-loan Chelsea striker Abraham scored his 11th goal of the season to equalise after the break.

Abraham played provider for the Robins' second as he teed up Jamie Paterson to clinch the win.

Newcastle needed Christian Atsu's solo strike to hand them a 1-0 victory at bottom club Rotherham while Leeds returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Barnsley in the Yorkshire derby.

Kyle Bartley and Pablo Hernandez, who both played under boss Garry Monk at Swansea, put the Whites in front.

Although Charlie Taylor's 70th-minute own goal set up a tense finish, Leeds were able to hold on.

Brighton claimed their first ever win at Hillsborough as goals from Sam Baldock and Anthony Knockaert handed Chris Hughton's side a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Gary Hooper scored a last-minute consolation for the hosts but the Seagulls sealed the win.

Birmingham extended their unbeaten run to seven games as Stephen Gleeson's winner saw them secure a 1-0 win over Blackburn at St Andrews.

Aston Villa's torrid run in the Championship continued as Preston claimed a 2-0 win thanks to first-half goals from Ben Pearson and Jordan Hugill.

Cardiff suffered their sixth defeat in seven games as Jackson Irvine and Lucas Akins helped Burton secure a 2-0 victory at the Pirelli Stadium, while Reading midfielder George Evans cancelled out Matej Vydra's opener to help the Royals claim a 1-1 draw against Derby.

Meanwhile, Brentford and Wigan shared the spoils in a goalless draw.
