Barnsley leapfrog Birmingham City out of the Championship dropzone thanks to a 2-0 win over the Blues at St Andrew's.

Barnsley have leapfrogged Birmingham City out of the Championship dropzone thanks to a 2-0 win over the Blues at St Andrew's.

Oliver McBurnie scored a brace to give the Tykes only their second win in 19 games and could have had a hat-trick but for David Stockdale keeping out his penalty.

Birmingham slip two places to 23rd in the table, while Barnsley's first victory under new head coach Jose Morais sees them climb to 21st in the standings.

The Wear-Tees derby yielded six goals as Sunderland and Middlesbrough played out a 3-3 draw at the Stadium of Light.

Callum McManaman scored his first goal in two-and-a-half years in the 96th minute to rescue a point against Boro in a match where each side saw a men sent off in the first half.

The fixtures at the Madejski Stadium and Hillsborough also saw six goals apiece as Jon Dadi Bodvarsson struck in the 80th minute to help Reading to a 3-3 draw with 10-man Derby County.

In South Yorkshire, Aston Villa twice came from behind to win 4-2 at Sheffield Wednesday and move a point behind second-placed Cardiff City.

Loftus Road, meanwhile, saw a seven-goal thriller as Queens Park Rangers fell to a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest, Lee Tomlin scoring twice to end the Reds' recent winless run.

Burton Albion remain stuck in the bottom three after succumbing to a 1-0 home loss against Millwall, while Leeds United ended their 10-match winless run with a 1-0 victory over Brentford.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Ipswich Town won 1-0 at Preston North End, while East Anglian rivals Norwich City were held to a goalless draw at home to Bolton Wanderers.
