Championship tweets of the weekend

Show new updates

Charlton Athletic 2-2 Wigan Athletic

The Latics were dealt a brutal late blow against the Addicks, as Macauley Bonnes's stoppage time goal denied Paul Cook's side another precious win, as the relegation battle rolls on to the final day of the season.

Despite the impending 12 point deduction, this Wigan fan hasn't given up hope of survival yet:

Stoke City 1-0 Brentford

Stoke City stunned the Bees to ensure their Championship survival for another season, and put the brakes on Thomas Frank's side's automatic promotion push.

This rather savage tweet didn't go down too well with Brentford fans!

A cracker at Loftus Road saw the Hoops flirt with danger throughout the ninety minutes, but just about kept the Lions at bay thanks to goals from the likes of Eberechi Eze and Todd Kane.

This goal from Ryan Leonard has been tipped for Goal of the Season, and rightly so!

Middlesbrough 1-3 Cardiff City

Boro blew a chance to ensure their Championship survival with a home loss to the Bluebirds, and are another side set for a nerve-wracking Wednesday night.

One eagle-eyed supporter spotted George Friend, who, by the looks of things, could have been taking a final look at the stadium before his contract's expiry. 

Hull City 0-1 Luton Town

It was the Hatters who emerged victorious in the 'six-pointer' against the Tigers, as Kazenga LuaLua's late goal secured a narrow, but well-deserved win for Nathan Jones' men.

This analogy went down well with Hatters supporters:

Fulham 5-3 Sheffield Wednesday

An eight-goal thriller saw the Cottagers keep their automatic promotion hopes going with a win over the Owls.

This Wednesday fan wasn't too happy to see another Yorkshire rival earn promotion over the weekend...

Derby County 1-3 Leeds United

With promotion already in the bag thanks to West Bromwich Albion's slip up, Leeds cruised to victory against the Rams despite their wild celebrations on Friday.

Victor Orta's rather cheeky reference to the 'Spygate' scandal was quite a moment.

Preston North End 2-0 Birmingham City

The Lilywhites can no longer make the play-offs, but they got back to winning ways with a dominant win over the relegation-threatened Blues.

Sky Sports' Alan McInally didn't look too overjoyed with the somewhat subdued first half-hour or so.

Swansea City 1-0 Bristol City

Swansea City's win over the Robins saw them maintain their slim hopes of making the play-offs, with a win over Reading now enough to see them secure sixth - if Cardiff City lose to Hull City.

Bristol City were dire in front of goal, as this fan summed up pretty well.

Blackburn Rovers 4-3 Reading

Rovers raced out the blocks and were two goals up within six minutes against the Royals, but made things hard for themselves and had to rely on a late Sam Gallagher goal to see them eventually bag the win.

Tony Mowbray needs to get that defence in order for next season, that's for sure!
