Brighton’s Championship season continued with a draw against Sheffield Wednesday at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday.

A fourth successive cleansheet was secured by Brighton but a failure to breakthrough against Sheffield Wednesday meant this nil-nil draw saw ground lost on Burnley and a chance to close in on Middlesbrough missed, they lost to Rotherham.

The 12-goals in four-matches previously at home had seen Albion in a rich run of form but this goalless draw, whilst moving us above Hull (who have games in hand as they were in FA Cup action) to third, didn’t help our bid as much as a win would have….

Obviously!

But it’s another point, another cleansheet and another game to add to the four-match unbeaten run from a game delayed due to a road accident.

These were the other results.

Tuesday 8th March 2016
Blackburn 2-0 Birmingham
Brighton 0-0 Sheff Wed
Cardiff 0-2 Leeds
Charlton 0-0 MK Dons
Fulham 2-3 Burnley
Huddersfield 3-1 Reading
Nottm Forest 1-0 Preston
QPR 2-0 Derby
Rotherham 1-0 Middlesbrough
Wolves 2-1 Bristol City
Bolton 2-2 Ipswich

It couldn’t have been a better night for Burnley (three-two) really as they extended the lead at the top of the table with a win at Craven Cottage – the only disappointment would have been that Hull didn’t play, they lost but this was in the FA Cup against Arsenal….

Middlesbrough (one-nil) were always going to have a tough game against relegation battling Rotherham with the Millers stunning the visitors to the New York Stadium with a win that helps their survival chances but dented the Boro automatic bid with Brighton’s (nil-nil) also stalling slightly in a draw against play-off chasing Sheffield Wednesday at the Amex Stadium.

Of those looking to get into the play-offs, they didn’t really take advantage of the dropped points from Wednesday – defeats for Cardiff (two-nil) against Leeds at the Cardiff City Stadium, Preston (one-nil) losing at Nottingham Forest, Birmingham (two-nil) slipping to a recent rare defeat at Blackburn and Ipswich (two-two) being held at relegation threatened Bolton basically saw the status quo maintained.

At the bottom the big winners were, as we know, Rotherham but Charlton’s (nil-nil) draw with MK Dons has done very little to aid the Addicks’ chances of survival with that a point the visitors will be much happier with.

Who was the Albion MotM in this game? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
