Leicester moved to within a point of Championship leaders Preston with a 2-0 win at Norwich as Neil Warnock bowed out as Huddersfield boss in a 2-2 draw against Stoke on Wednesday.

The Foxes have won six of their first seven games back in the second tier as they look to bounce straight back to the Premier League.

Kelechi Iheanacho fired Leicester in front from the penalty spot before Kasey McAteer added his fifth goal of the season in the closing stages to seal the three points.

Jack Rudoni salvaged a point for Huddersfield as the 74-year-old Warnock brought the curtain down on his second spell in charge of the club.

Daniel Johnson and Ben Wilmot had turned the game around for Stoke after Matty Pearson gave the home side a first-half lead.

Warnock departs with Huddersfield 16th, five points above the relegation zone, after inspiring a remarkable revival to survive last season.

Sunderland moved up to fourth, six points behind the leaders, as Jack Clarke's brace helped them to a 3-1 win at Blackburn.

Hull edged into the playoff places despite failing to make the most of a man advantage for 30 minutes in a 0-0 draw with Leeds.

On-loan Tottenham defender Joe Rodon was sent off for his second yellow-card offence.

Watford drew 2-2 at home with West Brom thanks to Matheus Martins' second-half equaliser.

Millwall beat Rotherham 3-0 at the Den thanks to goals from Ryan Longman, Zian Flemming and Tom Bradshaw.
