Championship round-up: Doherty double keeps Wolves clear at top

James Chester of Aston Villa attempts to shoot but has his shot blocked by Cameron Carter Vickers of Tottenham Hotspur during The Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between

Aston Villa's bid for automatic promotion from the Sky Bet Championship suffered a serious setback last night as QPR recorded a surprise victory at Villa Park.

"It was always my fear that would happen after the euphoria of beating Wolves", Bruce said.

"I'd say given the context of the game, it's the best result since I've been here".

"But everyone is playing their part for us right now which is great but it also makes it hard for me when it comes to picking the team".

"No one imaged we'd have won 4-1, but I'm delighted for everybody concerned".

Coupled with Cardiff's home win earlier in the day, the defeat left Wolves three points clear at the top.

But after head coach Nuno Espirito Santo shook them up with four changes from the side beaten 4-1 at Villa, Wolves responded in a fashion that saw normal service restored, goals in each half by Matt Doherty sandwiching one in between by Benik Afobe to give them a comfortable win.

The Bluebirds have a tough week ahead with visits to Brentford and Derby County to negotiate, but they need just three points between the two games to ensure they head into the worldwide break with second place still in their grip.

They came back from 1-0 down to win 3-1 at Griffin Park and strengthen their grip on second spot.

Sol Bamba, Callum Paterson and Kenneth Zohore scored for Neil Warnock's side after Neal Maupay had opened the scoring for Brentford. We knew we had to play well, and certainly did that.

At the bottom Barnsley inched three points clear of the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw with mid-table Norwich.

Swansea City loanee Oli McBurnie celebrated his first Scotland call-up by scoring just before half-time, only for Josh Murphy to equalise.

Hull also grabbed another crucial win and are now nine points above the bottom three.
