Britt Assombalonga fired a brace to down Wanderers as Clayton Donaldson capped his Blades debut with two strikes against the Black Cats
MIDDLESBROUGH won away for the first time in over a year as they thumped Bolton 3-0.
Adama Traore proved to be too much of livewire for the Wanderers defence as he twice raced through their backline before sending over crosses for Britt Assombalonga to finish.
And Marvin Johnson celebrated his debut by coming off the bench to fire home with 12 minutes remaining.
That was Boro‘s first triumph on the road for 384 days since they were 2-1 victors at Sunderland in the Premier League last August.
And their North East rivals suffered another miserable day in front of their own supporters as Clayton Donaldson bagged two on his Sheffield United debut to down the Black Cats.
Jack Rodwell’s injury time effort reduced the deficit, but it was not enough to stop his side from a third consecutive defeat.
Wolves kept up their promotion charge as Diogo Jota’s superb early strike secured a 1-0 win over Millwall – who had Aiden O’Brien sent off on 65 minutes.
Aston Villa were unable to find a way past strugglers Brentford as the clash ended goalless, while Aden Flint’s late strike sealed Bristol City a one-goal victory at Reading.
QPR deserved their 2-1 victory at home to early high-flyers Ipswich Town.
Jamie Mackie broke the deadlock before the break before Luke Freeman doubled the advantage, with Bersant Celina pulling one back for the visitors.
Nelson Oliveira’s fifth-minute effort was enough to earn Norwich the points against Birmingham City.
Sean Maguire’s first goal for Preston was not enough to claim the win as Brad Potts ensured Barnsley left Deepdale with a share of the spoils.
Meanwhile, Leeds United’s Pierre Michel-Lasogga netted twice on his first appearance for the club on a memorable afternoon at Elland Road.
Kalvin Phillips, Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe were also on target as they hammered Burton 5-0.
And Fulham battled to a 1-1 draw at home to Cardiff City after Danny Ward rescued a point for Neil Warnock’s side after falling behind to Ryan Sessegnon.
