Championship leaders Norwich survived a late scare to secure a 1-0 win over Barnsley – their first victory in three games.
Emi Buendía scored the only goal after 62 minutes at Carrow Road, hitting a superb volley after controlling a lofted pass.

Jamal Lowe struck twice as Swansea came from behind to move up to second with with a 2-1 win over Watford at the Liberty Stadium. Tom Cleverley had fired the visitors into a 20th-minute lead but Lowe levelled before the break, then headed home a Korey Smith cross for the winner midway through the second half.
Lucas João was also on target twice as he made an impressive return from injury in Reading’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield. Fraizer Campbell gave the Terriers an early lead at the John Smith’s Stadium but João equalised seven minutes after the break. He then settled the contest with a superb turn and long-range strike 13 minutes later.
Wycombe remain at the bottom of the table after surrendering a lead to lose 3-1 at home to Middlesbrough. Uche Ikpeazu scored his first goal for the club after three minutes but Marcus Browne and Marcus Tavernier responded. Tavernier later hit the frame of the goal but Chuba Akpom put the result beyond doubt after a corner nine minutes from time.
Millwall’s poor home form continued as they were beaten 2-1 by Coventry at The Den. The Lions fell behind when Jake Cooper turned into his own net after 20 minutes and Gustavo Hamer added Coventry’s second six minutes later. Jed Wallace pulled one back from the penalty spot after 74 minutes but it was not enough for Millwall, who had Murray Wallace sent off late on as their winless home run extended to eight games.
Bradley Dack scored his first goal for over a year as Blackburn won 2-0 at Birmingham. Dack, who has been out injured for most of the past 12 months, struck in injury time at St Andrews to wrap up victory after Adam Armstrong had earlier claimed his 17th goal of the season.
