Watford are slowly fading in the table after another disappointing performance vs. Huddersfield. Chris Wilder had little options at the end, seeing his goalkeeper being red carded and no more subs to use, he went for Hamza Choudhury to take the gloves as there were only seconds left of the game.

Neil Warnock has worked wonders with The Terriers since coming in and this 3-2 win away at Vicarage Road did see them climb up just above the relegation places. Ben Hamer was an unused sub for Watford, and probably will be considered as their regular number one will be out after being red carded.

Ipswich are flying at the moment in League One, George Hirst has again found goal form, scoring the opening goal in the 4-0 trashing of Wycombe at home. Hirst has scored 4 in 14 league games so far, with all of his goals coming in March and April.

Callum Elder came on as a sub in the 65th minute as Hull managed a 4-4 draw away to Sunderland. Victor Johansson was in goal when Rotherham defeated West Bromwich 3-1 at home. Marc Albrighton came on as a 2nd half sub for West Bromwich, who are also fading in the race for play-off positions, five points below.

Gary Rowett and his Millwall are still in the play-off zone, despite a 0-0 draw at home to Luton. Cedric Kipre played the full game for Cardiff when they defeated Blackpool with a great 3-1 away win.

Nigel Pearson and his Bristol City did well away to Stoke, winning 3-1. Matty James played the full game for The Robins, Andy King came on early first half to be part of this massive win that did see a climb to 13th and passing Stoke, who are 14th. Nick Powell scored the opening goal for Stoke.

Mark Robins and his Coventry are currently in reach of a play-off position, but just a 0-0 draw away to Swansea could Sky Blues fading, with a difficult run in front.

Elliott Moore and David Stockdale both played for their teams when Oxford (EM) and Sheffield W (DS) drew 1-1 at The Kassam Stadium. The Owls are still in a fight for promotion staying 3rd. Oxford are currently 20th and battling in the relegation area.
