Bournemouth beat Bristol City 1-0 to climb to second in the English Championship courtesy of substitute Arnaut Danjuma's late winner on Wednesday.

After being introduced with a quarter of an hour remaining, Danjuma struck nine minutes from time as the Cherries maintained their unbeaten start to their league campaign.

Jason Tindall's side trail leaders Reading by six points, having won four and drawn four of their eight games following their relegation from the Premier League in July.

"When Arnaut got his moment, he took it with a great finish," Tindall told the BBC.

"We want to be pushing for top spot and we knew we had to win on the back of three draws, and thankfully we managed to do that."

A smart finish from striker Kenneth Zohore and a late Jed Wallace penalty were enough for Millwall to secure a deserved 2-0 victory at Preston.

The Lions secured their fourth win of the season, condemning Preston to another frustrating home Championship reverse.

Sheffield Wednesday suffered a third straight league defeat, losing 3-0 at Rotherham, who scored all three goals in a strange first half.

There was a 10-minute delay when the players were taken off the pitch early on for safety reasons after referee Jarred Gillett was informed there was an unauthorised drone flying above the stadium.

Upon the resumption, the Owls were caught cold as two goals from Jamie Lindsay sandwiched Daniel Barlaser's penalty.

Nottingham Forest extended manager Chris Hughton's unbeaten run to four games since he took over this month with a 1-1 draw at Luton.

Derby's winless run at Pride Park continued when Kieffer Moore's third goal of the season earned Cardiff a 1-1 draw.

Martyn Waghorn gave Derby a first-half lead with a brilliant free-kick but Moore equalised 13 minutes from time.

Lukas Jutkiewicz hit a last-minute winner for Birmingham in a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield at St Andrew's.
