Championship action on Easter Monday

The hectic Championship programme continued early on Easter Monday afternoon when Preston North End with skipper Greg Cunningham, Alan Browne and Sean Maguire in their starting eleven, went down to a disappointing one nil home defeat by Derby County for whom Alex Pearce replaced Richard Keogh in their starting eleven. Bristol City, without injury victim Callum O’Dowda, went down to a one nil defeat by visitors Brentford who had John Egan and Alan Judge in their starting eleven while Queens Park Rangers recovered from conceding a Ryan Manning own goal to defeat Norwich City and Wes Hoolihan by four goals to one at Loftus Road with Manning scoring the fourth. Sheffield United and Enda Stevens suffered heartbreak when visitors Cardiff City scored an added time equaliser through late substitute Anthony Pilkington at Bramall Lane this evening.
