Friday evening action in the Championship…29/12/2017

The Championship continued on Friday evening with Cardiff City going down to a very late one nil defeat by visitors Preston North End. Forgotten man Anthony Pilkington was an unused substitute for the ‘Bluebirds’ while fellow injury victim Greg Cunningham returned to the ‘Lilywhites’ starting eleven where he was joined by Alan Browne and Daryl Horgan with Kevin O’Connor unused on the substitute bench. The Den hosted the ‘London Derby’ meeting of Millwall, for whom Aiden O’Brien started, and visitors Queens Park Rangers for whom U21 midfielder Ryan Manning was an unused substitute as his side went down to a one nil defeat.
