Championship round-up: Huddersfield still unbeaten, Newcastle go second, Fulham defeated

12 Sep

Brighton 0 Brentford 2

SCOTT HOGAN scored both goals as Brentford sent Brighton down to their first home defeat since New Year’s Day at the Amex Stadium.

Bees manager Dean Smith said: “I am pleased with the result and the overall performance and Hogan will be disappointed not to have got a hat-trick.”

Albion boss Chris Hughton said: “We were beaten by the better side. Brentford kept the ball better. The second goal was about individual quality from the lad Hogan.”

Fulham 0 Birmingham 1

TEN-MAN Fulham suffered their first defeat of the season as they went down at home to Birmingham.

Clayton Donaldson, who missed a first-half penalty, made no mistake with his second spot-kick in the 49th minute.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic was realistic about his side’s performance and said: “Birmingham played better than we did today and they deserved the points.”

Birmingham manager Gary Rowett said: “I told Maghoma to take the penalty – Mags was meant to take the second penalty.

Leeds 0 Huddersfield 1

AARON MOOY’S spectacular second-half strike sank Leeds and kept unbeaten local rivals Huddersfield top of the table following their best start in the modern era.

Leeds boss Gary Monk said: “I’m disappointed with the result, of course. We went out there with the intention of trying to grab the initiative but partly due to the way Huddersfield set up it became a bit of a nothing game.”
