Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds and West Brom

Leeds’ wait for a first league win since April 4 went on after they came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw with West Brom on Friday.

Baggies boss Carlos Corberan, who spent three years at Elland Road, thought he had earned bragging rights over his old club thanks to Brandon Thomas-Asante’s controversial opener, which came off his arm, early in the second half.

But Luke Ayling clinched the hosts a welcome point with his bullet header.

Plymouth eye chance to make Home Park a fortress

Plymouth vs Southampton

2010/11 was the last time these two sides met in the league. And a lot has changed for both since. Back then, it was in a League One campaign that saw Southampton promoted to the Championship, and Plymouth relegated to League Two.

Having spent years at opposite ends of the pyramid, they meet on a level playing field back in the second tier, and Plymouth will fancy their chances to cause a bit of a stir, particularly in front of a raucous Home Park – a ground where they have lost just twice since the start of last season.

A super Sunday at Carrow Road

Norwich vs Millwall

There was an amount of doom and gloom at Norwich at the start of the season, Teemu Pukki had left and there was a question mark about where the goals were going to come from. But six have been scored in their opening two games, and their ability to go toe-to-toe with Southampton last week in a 4-4 epic suggests they should be there or thereabouts come May.

Kick off 12:00pm

Millwall, meanwhile, have had a start to the season that has provided a perfect reminder of why they seem to finish just outside the play-offs – one way or another – every year. An opening-day win at Middlesbrough followed by defeat at home to Bristol City. Consistency is key to cracking that top six. They will be hoping for more of the former result in East Anglia.
