Leicester remain top of the Championship table following a packed Halloween weekend of action.

Harry Winks struck a 80th minute winner for league leaders, Leicester as they battled to a 2-1 win at ten-men and second-bottom QPR, after Andre Dozzell was sent off 19 minutes following his 40th minute equaliser to cancel out Stephy Mavididi’s opening goal.

QPR’s loss consequently meant that Gareth Ainsworth was sacked as manager on Saturday evening (28 October), and replaced by Marti Cifuentes less than 48 hours later.

Second-half goals from George Hirst and Marcus Harness saw second-placed Ipswich beat Plymouth 3-2 at Portman Road, although Argyle had led through Morgan Whittaker before Bali Mumba’s own-goal pulled the Tractor Boys level.

Goals from Grady Diangana and Brandon Thomas-Asante saw West Brom beat Coventry 2-0 at the CBS Arena to climb to fifth in the table.
