It was a weekend for the underdogs in the Championship, as Birmingham beat leaders Cardiff and Burton managed a point at Bristol City.

Sheffield United continued their fantastic form, with another 1-0 win over Ipswich and Reading scored an 85th winner to secure the three points at Leeds United.

In the local derbies the home teams came out triumphant, with Wolves beating Aston Villa and Derby seeing off Nottingham Forest, both games ending 2-0.

The weekend began with Friday’s fixture at St Andrews, where Steve Cotterill started his Blues career in style, impressing the fans with the strength and set-up of the team.

Blues had won only 2 games prior to this match all season, while the Bluebirds were high-flying at the top of the table.

Che Adams’ 19th minute goal put the boys in blue ahead, a timely goal for the young lad as he had been out with a hamstring injury for a month.

Cardiff just weren’t good enough to beat Birmingham, as Isaac Vassell’s talent was portrayed properly for the first time this season.

Cardiff had no shots on target, which is credit to Birmingham, as their passion and drive was visible, even when they seemed to be tiring.

Jota, a summer signing from Brentford, is anticipated to make his comeback at The Den on Saturday as Birmingham play Millwall away.

Bristol City have been running rings around most teams all season, but Burton Albion were somehow able to stop them in their tracks.

This is Burton’s second season in the Championship, a campaign which could be pivotal to whether or not they are able to stay in this division, or return to League 1.

Bristol City have struggled in recent seasons, battling relegation but, if they continue their form like this, it is likely they will be play-off candidates.
