Anass Zaroury headed a dramatic Burnley winner deep into added time as they came from behind to beat Reading 2-1 at Turf Moor, leaving visiting manager Paul Ince raging that his side had been “conned” by the referee.

The goal came after Manuel Benson’s equaliser had levelled Tom Ince’s opener, as the Clarets extended their unbeaten record to 15 in the league and stayed above neighbours Blackburn.

Ince senior, whose side now have four defeats from five games, described referee Jeremy Simpson as “a joke, an absolutely total joke” in a furious outburst focused on two rejected penalty appeals: an apparent Josh Brownhill handball at 1-1, and a foul on his son in the second minute of added time with the scores still level.

“I’m going to have to say it. The referee is a joke, absolute total joke, and that’s why we’ve come away with nothing,” Ince said. “We’ll probably get a reply saying ‘we got it wrong, we got it wrong, we’ve seen it again, it’s a penalty’, but that’s no bloody good to me, no bloody good to my players, our fans and our club. I feel like I’ve been conned by the referees today and that’s what makes me angry.”

Blackburn sealed a hard-earned 1-0 victory at managerless Hull. Rovers have now won four in a row and left East Yorkshire with three points thanks to a 15th-minute effort from Sammie Szmodics.

The hosts, who look set to announce Liam Rosenior as their new manager, had enjoyed a mini resurgence under the interim head coach, Andy Dawson, but lacked the imagination to land a blow on their well-organised opponents.

Carlos Corberán said he “believes in these players” after West Brom’s problems continued with a 2-0 home defeat against Sheffield United. First-half goals from Iliman Ndiaye and Oli McBurnie gave Albion a mountain to climb, and they were booed off at full-time. They languish in the relegation zone after just one win in 12 games.

Norwich turned in an improved second-half performance to beat Stoke 3-1 and record their first win in seven league games. The Canaries were below par for long periods but stuck to their task and followed up a goal late in the first half with two in the second to get their promotion campaign back on track.

League One roundup: Charlton and Ipswich share eight goals

Show

1120

Ipswich missed out on the chance to move to the top after Charlton hit a last-gasp leveller in an eight-goal thriller at the Valley.

With league leaders Plymouth not in action until Monday, the Tractor Boys looked like taking full advantage having let a two-goal lead slip before four stoppage-time goals saw the sides draw 4-4.

It took until first-half injury time for the deadlock to be broken as George Edmundson’s header put Ipswich in front before Tyreece John-Jules nodded in to double the advantage.

Charlton hit back through Jesurun Rak-Sakyi and Albie Morgan but when both Freddie Ladapo and Sam Morsy hit fine injury-time goals, the points looked to be heading back to Suffolk.

Instead there was still time for the hosts to wrestle back a share of the spoils as Terell Thomas pulled a goal back and George Dobson headed home in the ninth minute of added time.

Sheffield Wednesday moved to within three points of the top two as they put pay to a Burton comeback to beat the division’s new bottom side 4-2.

The Owls were four goals to the good after a decent Barry Bannan finish, a Michael Smith penalty, Mallik Wilks’ strike and a Fisayo Dele-Bashiru effort.

Sam Winnall and Tom Hamer halved the arrears but Wednesday could afford for Lee Gregory to miss from the spot in between the visitors’ goals and still take the points.

Things were much more straightforward for fourth-placed Peterborough, who beat Cambridge 1-0 courtesy of an early Lloyd Jones own goal.

Morecambe moved off the foot of the table as they earned a 1-1 draw at Wycombe, Adam Mayor’s effort direct from a corner cancelling out Chris Forino’s header for the hosts.

Forest Green are just a point off the bottom having lost 2-0 at Barnsley, Devante Cole and Josh Martin on target, while MK Dons complete the relegation zone after a 0-0 draw at Cheltenham.

David McGoldrick hit a hat-trick as Derby beat Bristol Rovers 4-2 with all six goals coming in a frenetic first half. James Collins scored County’s second with Bobby Thomas and Anthony Evans scoring for Rovers.

Djavan Anderson, Ciaron Brown and Steve Seddon scored as Oxford pulled themselves away from the drop zone with a fine 3-1 win at Bolton, whose reply came from Dion Charles.

Fleetwood eased to a 3-0 home win over Accrington with three goals in 10 minutes.

Thank you for your feedback.

The teenage midfielder Aaron Ramsey was the star, scoring twice to put Norwich 2-0 up in a match which could have gone either way, while substitute Gabriel Sara added a third before Nick Powell fired a late consolation.

Nigel Pearson praised his illness-hit Bristol City side after they had the better of a 1-1 draw with high-flying Swansea. Tommy Conway fired the depleted hosts in front on 24 minutes, a low drive from Nahki Wells’ perfectly paced pass. But other chances went begging and the Swans levelled on 76 minutes through Olivier Ntcham.

Pearson said he had “numerous players under medication” due to the illness in the squad, “but we restricted a very good Swansea side to few chances. We’ll take a head count of fit players tomorrow. At the moment, I have no idea who will be available for Tuesday.”

João Pedro headed home the only goal with three minutes left at the DW Stadium to give improving Watford a 1-0 victory at strugglers Wigan. Pedro’s effort earned Slaven Bilic’s side a third win in four games, leaving them two points off the playoff places. Wigan, though, have lost six of their last seven and sit two points above the relegation zone.

Elliot Embleton came off the bench to score a second-half equaliser as Sunderland earned a 1-1 draw at Luton. Both sides were denied by the woodwork before Carlton Morris put the hosts in front on the stroke of half-time, but the impressive Jack Clarke set up Embleton for the leveller.

Huddersfield moved off the foot of the table with a dominant display in a 1-0 home win over Millwall. The visitors, who had won four on the trot heading into the fixture, could not recover from an early setback when Yuta Nakayama scored with a miscued cross.

Michael Carrick had an immediate insight into the cold realities of full-time football management when Jordan Storey’s stoppage-time goal earned Preston a 2-1 comeback victory over Middlesbrough.

Carrick, who was appointed head coach on Teesside on Monday, enjoyed a promising start to his tenure when Chuba Akpom nodded Boro in front after eight minutes. But Emil Riis thrashed home his fifth goal of the campaign before the break, and Storey stole in to head home in the first of three added minutes.

Leyton Orient extended their lead at the top to three points after Paul Smyth scored the only goal against Salford.

Stevenage lost ground, but stay second, after they were held 1-1 at Colchester, who dropped to the foot of the table despite a second successive draw.

Sam Hoskins’ stoppage-time equaliser rescued Northampton a point in a 1-1 home draw against Newport and kept his side in the automatic promotion places. Newport appeared set for victory after Omar Bogle had given them an early lead, but Hoskins levelled in the third minute of added time.

Swindon climbed up to fourth after twice coming from behind to win 5-2 at 10-man promotion rivals Mansfield. Kellan Gordon gave Mansfield the lead inside the opening minute and Will Swan was also on target for the home side. Jonny Williams’ double cancelled out both goals before Luke Jephcott put the Robins in front for the first time early in the second half.

Mansfield’s Hiram Boateng was dismissed for two yellow cards with 31 minutes remaining, and after Ronan Darcy made it 4-2, Ben Gladwin’s late penalty completed the scoring.

Barrow striker Josh Gordon’s double helped lift his side up to fifth after a 3-0 home win against Crewe.

Bradford moved up one place to sixth despite being held 1-1 at home by Crawley, who equalised through James Tilley’s free-kick after Dion Pereira had given the hosts a second-half lead.

Carlisle jumped back into the top seven as Kristian Dennis scored twice, his second from the penalty spot, in a 2-0 win at Tranmere.

Walsall secured back-to-back wins thanks to Hayden White’s solitary goal at home against Rochdale and Harrison Biggins’ second-half header earned Doncaster a 1-0 home win against Gillingham.

Stockport registered their fourth straight win in all competitions by beating 10-man Sutton 3-0. Kyle Wootton headed Stockport into a half-time lead after Omar Bugiel’s straight red card for his challenge on Will Collar, before goals in the second period from Paddy Madden and Collar eased them to victory.

Harrogate slipped to back-to-back defeats, losing 3-2 at AFC Wimbledon.

Hartlepool clinched their second league win of the season, 2-1 at home against Grimsby, to climb off the bottom. Alex Lacey and Niall Maher’s own goal snapped Pools’ four-game losing run after their former midfielder Gavan Holohan had given Grimsby an early lead.

Thank you for your feedback.

“To lose the game like that stings a bit,” said Carrick. “But it is one game and I said it would never be a fairy tale from the start, I understand that. It was never going to be perfect, we are trying little things, it is small steps and we will keep trying to improve. There are big moments in games and we have to flip them our way. It is the mentality, just believing, and we will get there.”

Jerry Yates scored his seventh goal in five games as Blackpool came from behind to beat Coventry 2-1. Kasey Palmer’s first Coventry goal had put the hosts ahead before half-time but Gary Madine equalised after missing three fantastic first-half opportunities. Yates then headed Blackpool in front with 10 minutes to go to secure the Tangerines’ first away win in five.

The substitute Jaden Philogene’s second-half strike was enough to earn Cardiff a 1-0 home win over Rotherham. Philogene’s 65th-minute winner halted a run of three successive losses for Bluebirds’ interim manager Mark Hudson as they bounced back from last week’s derby defeat to Swansea.
