Sunderland still waiting for home win; Wolves return to top of Championship

Ivan Cavaleiro scores for Wolves in their Championship fixture against Reading.
Ivan Cavaleiro's goal helped put Wolverhampton back atop the Championship table.

Chris Coleman will take over a Sunderland side still looking for a home win in 2017 after they drew 2-2 against Millwall on Saturday.

Coleman resigned as Wales boss on Friday and by all accounts is due to take the Sunderland job vacated by Simon Grayson, but he will be in for a fight against the Black Cats' second successive relegation.

Lewis Grabban capitalised on a rejuvenated mood at the Stadium of Light and put the home side ahead, but George Saville scored twice in four minutes to turn it around after errors from goalkeeper Robbin Ruiter.

But a howler from opposite number Jordan Archer allowed Adam Matthews to at least give Coleman something to build on.

Wolves leapfrogged Sheffield United back to the top of the table thanks to a 2-0 win at Reading.

United's win at Burton on Friday saw them reach the summit but Wolves responded immediately as Ivan Cavaleiro's 16th-minute goal and Matt Doherty's late clincher proved enough.

Cardiff remain in hot pursuit and saw off Brentford 2-0 thanks to goals from Joe Ralls (eight) and Danny Ward (36).

Derby missed an opportunity to break into the top six as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Fulham.

The hosts took the lead through Oliver Norwood, before Matej Vydra equalised in the second half.

A late goal from Jordan Spence earned Ipswich a 2-2 draw at struggling Hull.

Town led through David McGoldrick but were pegged back by Jarrod Bowen and Nouha Dicko. When McGoldrick missed a penalty it looked like it might not be the visitors' day but Spence equalised with two minutes left.

Josh Murphy put Norwich ahead at home to Barnsley, but they earned a 1-1 draw thanks to Harvey Barnes, while Albert Adomah's brace helped Aston Villa reply to Jamie Mackie's opener and beat QPR 2-1.

Elsewhere, Che Adams' fifth-minute goal earned Birmingham a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest, while Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City drew 0-0.
