Referee:

Brighton's Championship season continued with a one-nil defeat to Wolves at the Amex Stadium on Friday, meaning Albion are now without a win in six-matches.

A third successive home defeat means the unbeaten start to the season, which remained intact until just before Christmas is now a distant memory with Wolves' winning goal coming courtesy of an own goal from Connor Goldson as he turned a Jordan Graham cross past David Stockdale.

Before the own goal Man United loanee James Wilson had a couple of chances with the crossbar denying Bruno a goal to with Wolves 'keeper Carl Ikeme also pulling off a save to deny Lewis Dunk late on as Wolves won at Albion for the first time since 2004.

These were the other results.

Friday 1st January 2016
Brighton 0-1 Wolves
QPR 1-2 Hull

Saturday 2nd January 2016
Birmingham 2-1 Brentford
Bolton 0-2 Huddersfield
Burnley 0-0 Ipswich
Cardiff 1-0 Blackburn
Charlton 1-1 Nottm Forest
Fulham 0-1 Sheff Wed
Leeds 1-1 MK Dons
Middlesbrough 2-0 Derby
Preston 2-1 Rotherham
Reading 0-1 Bristol City

Brentford suffered a blow to their play-off hopes too with a late defeat at St Andrew's meaning Birmingham won two-one to keep their play-off bid going whereas the battle of the top two ended with Middlesbrough remaining firm favourites for the title with a two-one win over Derby at the Riverside Stadium.

The relegation battling sides, Bolton and Rotherham were beaten by Huddersfield and Preston, respectively, to leave them starting 2016 very much in trouble with Charlton collecting what could prove to be a crucial point from a one-one draw at the Valley with Nottingham Forest.
