Cardiff’s Championship season continued with a defeat against Norwich at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Another defeat, when Cardiff were beaten three-two at Norwich, means the Bluebirds are now just above the relegation zone.

Norwich took and early goal when Wilson palmed a Jacob Murphy to Jerome who was left with a six-yard finish against his former side to give the Canaries a first half lead.

Lambert went close to drawing Cardiff level, once hitting the crossbar before Martin doubled Norwich’s lead on the hour.

Cardiff had late hope when Pilkington scored four-minutes from time but Josh Murphy then restored the two-goal lead in the last minute before former Norwich forward Pilkington completed his brace but it wasn’t anything more than an injury-time consolation.

Here’s a round up of the Championship action from the other matches played.

The return to Championship action, after the international break, saw Reading see off Ipswich two-one on Friday to get the weekend underway.

Brentford beaten Brighton two-nil at the Amex Stadium with the Seagulls suffering a second successive defeat by the same scoreline too with the league leaders winning once again as Huddersfield won one-nil at Leeds.

The winning of the Manager of the Month award for Huddersfield’s David Wagner wasn’t a jinx with that win at Elland Road keeping the Terriers’ early season form going and them sitting pretty at the top.

Newcastle’s winning run also went on with a win against Brighton before the break followed up with a two-nil win at Derby at the iPro Stadium with the Rams’ early season struggles ongoing under Nigel Pearson.
