Cham­pi­onship round-up

Said Ben­rahma and Ethan Pin­nock sealed a dra­matic come­back as Brent­ford boosted their bid for au­to­matic pro­mo­tion to the Pre­mier League with a 2-1 win over Charl­ton at Grif­fin Park.

The vis­i­tors led through an eighth-minute goal from Ma­cauley Bonne, but Ben­rahma lev­elled from the penalty spot be­fore Pin­nock headed the win­ner five min­utes from time. Brent­ford’s win nar­rowed the gap to sec­ond-placed West Brom to just two points, ahead of the Mid­lands side’s clash with Derby tonight.

Barns­ley gained a use­ful point as sub­sti­tute Aapo Halme grabbed a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Lu­ton. Luke Berry had put the hosts in front early on in the bat­tle of the Cham­pi­onship’s bot­tom two teams, but Halme’s close-range strike lev­elled the score.

Hud­der­s­field con­tin­ued to edge closer to safety as they stretched their un­beaten run to three games with a goal­less draw at Read­ing.

Sixth-placed Cardiff failed to con­sol­i­date their play-off po­si­tion as they lost 3-2 at home to Black­burn. The home side had led twice, through Will Vaulks and Robert Glatzel, but the vis­i­tors re­sponded through Danny Gra­ham and Do­minic Sa­muel be­fore Adam Armstrong grabbed the win­ner on 70 min­utes.
