Leicester climbed to within a point of Championship leaders Preston with a 2-0 win at promotion rivals Norwich.

Kelechi Iheanacho fired Leicester in front from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time after Christian Fassnacht’s challenge on Stephy Mavididi and Kasey McAteer added his fifth goal of the season in the closing stages. The Foxes made it back-to-back victories after their recent home defeat to Hull and have won six of their first seven league matches.

Sunderland moved up to fourth, six points behind the leaders, as Jack Clarke’s brace helped them to a 3-1 win at Blackburn. Clarke’s penalty was cancelled out by Harry Leonard’s header, but Dan Neil restored Sunderland’s lead in first-half stoppage time before Clarke notched his second of the night – his fifth this season – with 12 minutes left.

Watford drew 2-2 at home with West Brom thanks to Matheus Martins’ second-half equaliser. Tom Ince had given Watford an early lead before West Brom hit back through John Swift’s free-kick and Jed Wallace, but Martins levelled before half-time.

Huddersfield also drew 2-2 at home against Stoke in Neil Warnock’s final match as manager. Daniel Johnson equalised for the Potters after Matty Pearson had headed Huddersfield into a first-half lead. Ben Wilmot’s header then put Stoke in front before the Terriers hit back through Jack Rudoni.
