Bournemouth squandered their chance to claim top spot in the Sky Bet Championship as they surrendered a two-goal lead against Millwall.

First-half goals from Steve Cook and Brett Pitman had given the hosts firm control of the match. But Edward Upson pulled one back for the Lions before substitute Magaye Gueye struck two minutes from time to make it 2-2 and rescue a point for the visitors.

Promotion rivals Derby County remain top but failed to make it four league runs in a row after a brace from Leeds United striker Mirco Antenucci was enough secure a 2-0 win and halt the Rams' charge.

On-loan Leeds striker Noel Hunt helped Ipswich Town elsewhere with the only goal as the Tractor Boys stole a late win at Charlton Athletic in the day's early kick-off. Hunt's first goal since January 2013 pushes them to within a point of the league leaders.

David Cotterill and Paul Caddis were on target for Birmingham City as they edged past Nottingham Forest 2-1. Fulham also nicked the same scoreline at Brighton & Hove Albion courtesy of goals from Hugo Rodallega and Lasse Vigen Christensen with Darren Bent scoring on debut for the home side

Brentford maintained their good run of form as they thrashed Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-0 at Griffin Park. Alan Judge, Stuart Dallas, Andre Gray and Ramallo Jota were all on the scoresheet to keep the Bees in touch with the top two.

Rudy Gestede rescued a point for Blackburn Rovers as his stoppage-time strike cancelled out Patrick Bamford's effort, holding Middlesbrough to a 1-1 draw at the Riverside Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers' resurgence under new boss Neil Lennon continued as Craig Davies' strike was enough to down Huddersfield Town 1-0. Cardiff City claimed a win at Watford by the same margin courtesy of an Adam Le Fondre goal.

Former Cardiff manager Malky Mackay tasted his first defeat as Wigan Athletic boss as they were edged out 2-1 by Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. A Stevie May brace cancelled out Chris McCann's strike.

Steven Davies' late strike rescued a point for Blackpool in their 1-1 draw at Rotherham United, who had led through Jordan Bowery, while a Jake Cooper brace cancelled out Gary Hooper's strike and gave Reading a much needed 2-1 win away at Norwich City.
