London, Oct 4, 2022 (AFP) - QPR stunned Championship leaders Sheffield United with a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane as second-placed Norwich missed the chance to go top after a 1-1 draw with Reading.

Chris Willock's 51st-minute strike sent the Blades spinning to a first home defeat of the season and pushed in-form Rangers up to fourth place.

Willock's winner came after he played a clever one-two with Ethan Laird and squeezed his shot from an acute angle between goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and the near post.

Norwich moved level on points with United but will be disappointed not to have taken all three points at Carrow Road.

Canaries captain Hanley put Norwich ahead from a corner five minutes after the restart, but Reading claimed a share of the spoils through Jeff Hendrick's excellent dipping strike from outside the box 10 minutes later.

Paul Ince's Reading remain in third, two points adrift of the top two.

Luton and Huddersfield shared the points as a six-goal thriller at Kenilworth Road ended 3-3.

Cardiff claimed a first win under interim manager Mark Hudson as Blackburn were beaten 1-0 in the Welsh capital.

In a dramatic finale, substitute Mark Harris fired Cardiff ahead struck with a rasping 20-yard shot seven minutes from time.

Ryan Allsop then saved an injury-time penalty from George Hirst.

Sunderland had to settle for a goalless draw against Blackpool, while it was also 0-0 between bottom of the table Coventry and Bristol City.
