Wolves recovered from their humbling at Aston Villa to restore a 10-point gap to Steve Bruce's side, who were surprisingly beaten by QPR.

Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves team had won just once in their previous five league games heading into the rearranged match against Reading, including a 4-1 thrashing at Villa on Saturday.

Coupled with Cardiff's home win earlier in the day, the defeat left Wolves three points clear at the top.

A rare Jake Bidwell strike - his first in the league for QPR - secured a 2-0 lead that Luke Freeman stretched to three before James Chester's late consolation. I thought about making five or six changes but the way we won on Saturday weighed against me.

Doherty then turned provider in the 48th minute to tee-up Afobe, but the on-loan Bournemouth striker wasted an excellent chance to put the game beyond Reading when he dragged his weak shot wide from close range.

Hull City eased their relegation fears as they hit back from 3-1 down to beat Norwich City 4-3 - Abel Hernandez netting two penalties before Harry Wilson's victor.

"We don't get carried away because, if you do, you get kicked in the teeth in the Championship", said the Cardiff manager, Neil Warnock.

"I am under no illusions about that fact but we have given ourselves the opportunity to make further progress".

Barnsley inched three points clear of the relegation zone after a 1-1 draw with Norwich.

Hull City picked up another big win at the bottom of the table, but Barnsley were held and Burton Albion lost on a dramatic evening at either end of the division.

Former Shamrock Rovers player Enda Stevens, who was called up to the Irish squad last week. opened the scoring in the first half before David Brooks' goal after the break helped lift them to seventh.

The Tigers beat Ipswich 3-0 at Portman Road thanks to goals from Markus Henriksen, Harry Wilson and Jarrod Bowen.
