What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

Bournemouth's astonishing month has resulted in manager Eddie Howe and star frontman Callum Wilson being named manager and player of the month in a double coup for the Cherries.

Blackpool have sealed the signing of young Hull City right-back Brian Lenihan, while Millwall have failed in their appeal to rescind Andy Wilkinson's red card for a lunge on Blackburn Rovers winger Ben Marshall in midweek, much to the frustration of manager Ian Holloway, who has been warned about his future conduct by the FA.
