Steve Bruce has called on the Aston Villa fans to continue to back the side after the superb atmosphere that helped the team on Saturday.

Aston Villa's hopes of automatic promotion suffered a major blow with a surprise 3-1 defeat at home to QPR that, coupled with wins for Wolves and Cardiff, saw Villa fall seven points off the pace in third. I wouldn't have thought my staff would have behaved like that.

Hull City eased their relegation fears as they hit back from 3-1 down to beat Norwich City 4-3 - Abel Hernandez netting two penalties before Harry Wilson's victor.

Cardiff are also in a strong position to return to the top flight after a 3-1 win at Brentford.

Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers' promotion charge was halted as Midlands rivals Aston Villa handed out a 4-1 thrashing at a spirited Villa Park on Saturday.

Sol Bamba, Callum Paterson and Kenneth Zohore scored for Neil Warnock's side after Neal Maupay had opened the scoring for Brentford. We've got to put it behind us and quick.

The Irishman then turned provider in the 48th minute to tee-up Afobe, but the latter wasted an excellent chance to put the game beyond Reading when he dragged his weak shot wide from close range.

The 2-0 win for Wolves over Villa at Molineux in October means the Black Country outfit have now lost just one of their past six meetings with Villa overall, going unbeaten in all three Championship clashes in the process.

Barnsley inched three points clear of the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw with Norwich.

Swansea City loanee Oli McBurnie celebrated his first Scotland call-up by scoring just before half-time, only for Josh Murphy to equalise.
