Kenneth Zohore and Junior Hoilett scored late on at Carrow Road to edge the Bluebirds above Fulham, who kick off against Brentford at 5.30pm.

At Oakwell, Oliver McBurnie scored a stoppage-time equaliser to give Barnsley a 2-2 draw against relegation rivals Bolton Wanderers, but the Tykes stay in the dropzone.

Burton Albion moved off the bottom with a 3-1 win over local rivals Derby County, who missed a late penalty and dropped out of the playoffs due to their loss at the Pirelli Stadium.

Elsewhere, Hull City fell to a 1-0 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest ran out 2-1 winners over Ipswich Town, and Preston North End won 2-1 at Queens Park Rangers.
