Championship roundup: Chris Hughton enjoys winning start with Forest


Chris Hughton marked his first game in charge of Nottingham Forest with a late 1-0 win at Blackburn. The former Newcastle and Brighton manager, who replaced Sabri Lamouchi after Forest’s four-game losing start to the season, will have been extremely encouraged by the performance of his new charges at Ewood Park.

The visitors looked solid and took hold of proceedings as the game wore on, with Thomas Kaminski saving well from Lyle Taylor and Sammy Ameobi, who also struck a post. They were eventually rewarded in the 90th minute through Joe Lolley’s deflected strike, which ended a run of six straight league defeats.

At the top, Reading were held to a goalless draw at Middlesbrough, surrendering their 100% record, as did Bristol City in rather more dramatic fashion, conceding a 112th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Barnsley.

Wycombe were finally able to celebrate their first goal in the second tier of English football but are still looking for a first point after Millwall came from behind to record a 2-1 victory at Adams Park. The Chairboys gave themselves hope of getting off the mark through Scott Kashket’s bizarre opener after Bartosz Bialkowski miscontrolled in his own six-yard box. However, a Jed Wallace penalty and a fine Ryan Leonard strike gave the visitors the points.

Huddersfield robbed Swansea of their unbeaten record in the league as they won on the road for the first time in three months at the Liberty Stadium. Josh Koroma clinched a 2-1 victory with his first goal for the club in the 67th minute after the home side cancelled out Harry Toffolo’s opener with an André Ayew penalty.

Jordan Hugill scored a stoppage-time penalty as Norwich came from behind to beat 10-man Rotherham 2-1. Freddie Ladapo gave Rotherham an early lead but then had a penalty saved by Tim Krul. Michael Ihiekwe’s own goal allowed Norwich to draw level midway through the second half. Angus MacDonald was sent off for the hosts before Hugill struck.
