2020-21 Sky Bet Championship: Week 15 Roundup

Norwich City remain top of Sky Bet Championship after a packed midweek round in which none of the top four clubs managed to clinch victory. 

George Moncur gave Luton an early lead but Emiliano Buendia equalised for Norwich just minutes later from the penalty spot after Przemyslaw Placheta was fouled by James Shea.

Matty Pearson’s header then pulled the Hatters back ahead just three minutes later before James Collins made sure of victory in front of a 1000 strong crowd at Kenilworth Road, as Daniel Farke’s Canaries fell to a 3-1 defeat.

Late goals from Junior Stanislas and Sam Surridge proved consolatory for Bournemouth as they fell to a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Preston, as Daniel Johnson set up goals from Tom Barkhuizen and Patrick Bauer either side of Scott Sinclair’s 30 yard stunner.

Watford consequently missed their opportunity to go second after finding themselves held to a goalless draw at Nottingham Forest.
