Championship round up

City are one of nine teams who won their opening fixture.

Goal difference, goals scored and alphabetical means City stand in 6th place on the first League table of the season.

Top of the table are Blackpool who won 2 - 0 at Millwall. Burnley are 2nd after an impressive opening day win over rivals and recently relegated Bolton.

Two impressive comebacks saw Dave Jones' Sheffield Wednesday score in the 90th minute to draw 2 - 2 at Derby (Jones is unbeaten since taking over at Hillsborough) and Gianfranco Zola's Watford snatched a 3 - 2 win at Crystal Palace with a 95th minute strike. They were losing 2 - 1 with 3 mins of normal time remaining.

Tuesday's oponents Brighton lost 1 - 0 at Hull while relegated Wolves were beaten 1 - 0 at Leeds and Steve Keen saw his Blackburn side draw at Ipswich.
