Milutin Osmajic’s first goal in English football fired the Championship leaders Preston to a 2-1 comeback win against Birmingham.
Jay Stansfield’s strike in the opening minute of the second half threatened to end Preston’s unbeaten start to the season but the league leaders were on level terms when Krystian Bielik headed into his own net in the 51st minute.
Preston then made it six wins from their opening seven games thanks to Osmajic’s composed close-range finish in the 67th minute.
Lyndon Dykes’s stoppage-time goal rescued a point for QPR in a 1-1 draw with Swansea. Josh Ginnelly’s early goal looked like giving the Welsh side their first win under the manager, Michael Duff. But the Scotland forward Dykes, on as a substitute, equalised when he headed home Ilias Chair’s left-wing cross. Swansea ended the match with 10 men as Oli Cooper was sent off in the final seconds after a foul on Dykes earned him a second yellow card.
The Chelsea loanee Omari Hutchinson’s first Ipswich goal was enough to lead Kieran McKenna’s men to a 1-0 win at Southampton. Ipswich are up to second after winning four successive away games in the second tier for the first time in eight years, while Southampton have lost their past three games.
Dimitrios Goutas and Karlan Grant scored their first goals for Cardiff in a 3-2 win against Coventry. Kion Etete polished things off for the home side with a goal with his first touch in the 84th minute, while Matt Godden scored twice for the visitors.
Darragh Lenihan’s second-half goal cancelled out Anthony Musaba’s opener as Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 with Middlesbrough at Hillsborough, leaving both teams still without a win so far this season.
Goals from Sam Bell, Matty James, Mark Sykes and Harry Cornick gave Bristol City a 4-1 win against Plymouth, who replied through Adam Randell.
