Wolves 12 points clear after defeat of Brentford; goals rain for Fulham
Wolves moved 12 points clear at the top of the Championship with a 3-0 win over Brentford at Molineux.
Ruben Neves broke the deadlock on 57 minutes with a well-taken free-kick.
Before the Bees could mount a recovery, Barry Douglas had lashed in a second two minutes later and on-loan Atletico Madrid man Diogo Jota wrapped things up with a third on 80 minutes.
Fulham closed up on the top six after coming from behind to beat 10-man Ipswich with a remarkable spell of four goals in seven second-half minutes at Craven Cottage.
Town took the lead just before half-time when Joe Garner nodded in a free kick from Martyn Waghorn.
However, defender Jordan Spence was then shown a straight red card after 54 minutes for a late challenge on Aboubakar Kamara.
Fulham equalised on 69 minutes through Ryan Sessegnon and turned the match around just two minutes later when Kamara lashed in a loose ball.
It got worse for the Tractor Boys on 74 minutes when teenage wing-back Sessegnon helped himself to another at the far post, and then Kamara swiftly slotted in a fourth from 18 yards.
Fulham are now 10th, but only four points behind sixth-spotted Leeds.
At the bottom of the table, Birmingham moved off the bottom with a 2-0 triumph at Reading.
The visitors took the lead on 24 minutes when Jacques Maghoma -- who netted the late winner against Leeds on Saturday -- lashed the ball in from close range following a deep free kick by Craig Gardner.
Sam Gallagher doubled the Blues' advantage on 64 minutes, which proved enough for another crucial three points to leapfrog Sunderland.
