Leeds continued their unbeaten start to the Championship season as they defeated Preston 3-0 at Elland Road to go three points clear at the top. Liam Cooper put Leeds in front eight minutes before half-time and two second-half goals from Tyler Roberts wrapped up the points for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Brentford are still second but could only draw 1-1 at bottom side Ipswich. The visitors led courtesy of an eighth goal of the season from the Championship’s top scorer Neal Maupay but Kayden Jackson levelled for Town on 73 minutes.

West Brom climbed above Bristol City into third after blowing the visitors away in the first half. Two goals from Jay Rodriguez and another from Dwight Gayle saw them lead 3-0 at half-time and although Lloyd Kelly and Famara Diedhiou replied for City either side of a Harvey Barnes strike, Darren Moore’s side completed a 4-2 victory.

Aston Villa were thankful to their loan players Tammy Abraham and Yannick Bolasie for the goals in their 2-0 win against Rotherham, while Josh Windass scored twice in three minutes in the first half for Wigan as they defeated Hull 2-1 despite Jarrod Bowen’s goal for the visitors.
