What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

The transfer window is open for just 11 more days, with deadline day this year falling on Monday February 2, so managers around the division will be desperately looking to make additions to their squad.

Huddersfield Town completed their first signing of the transfer window by sealing a loan swoop for David Edgar, who joins until the end of the season from Birmingham City.

Reading have also made their first capture by drafting in Slovenian left-back Jure Travner for the rest of the 2014/2015 campaign from FC Baku while Wigan Athletic have knocked back a second bid from Premier League side West Bromwich Albion for key winger Callum McManaman.

Two games were played last night, with Brighton and Hove Albion boosting their survival prospects with a 3-2 win over Ipswich Town, whose own promotion hopes were dented as they missed out on the opportunity to go top of the table.

Fulham also moved away from relegation trouble with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest, despite racing into a three-goal advantage in the first half.
