Derby fightback halts Birmingham’s good run Grabban helps Forest knock Blades off top High-flying Canaries outclass Wednesday
DERBY staged a stirring second-half comeback to win 3-1 at Pride Park and end Birmingham’s unbeaten record. Birmingham had not lost since August 22 and led through Lukas Jutkiewicz’s strike but they were blown away after the break.
Mason Bennett scored his first league goal for Derby in over five years, Harry Wilson fired in a free-kick LEWIS GRABBAN scored his 10th goal in 11 league appearances to help Nottingham Forest knock Sheffield United off the top of the Championship table with a 1-0 win at the City Ground.
The striker’s flicked header in the 69th minute was enough to decide a closely contested affair between two sides with promotion aspirations.
Aitor Karanka’s side had to hang on in injury time as the Blades piled on the pressure, but Chris Wilder’s team could not break the Reds’ resolve NORWICH continued their winning run as a second-half flurry of goals inflicted a 4-0 defeat upon Sheffield Wednesday. Teemu Pukki scored twice, while Emi Buendia and substitute Dennis Srbeny also got in on the act, as Daniel Farke’s team claimed a fourth consecutive triumph to go top in the Championship.
Wednesday, by contrast, have now lost four on the spin, with most home supporters left especially despondent by this latest reverse.
