Phillip Cocu’s starting XI and bench was up for debate (we’ll leave that to you), but on the field, Conor Chaplin’s 94th-minute equaliser for Barnsley forced the Rams’ sixth draw of the season - despite battling back from 1-0 down to lead 2-1.
Scott Parker’s men seem to be finally hitting full gear after credible draws against Cardiff, West Brom and Sheff Wed have been followed up with back-to-back wins over Wigan and empathically at Reading on Tuesday - a 4-1 win.
As the ball rolled out for a throw-in, Canos’ shove on Hunt saw the Bristol City right-back react and the Brentford midfielder end up over the advertising boards! They both received a yellow card, but Canos didn’t half milk it.
The Cowley brothers tasted their first win in charge of the Terriers and in the process delivered the club’s first away win since November 2018. They couldn’t hide their delight at full-time, celebrating in front of the away end.
Two points from the opening 10 games - even the former Luton boss admitted himself he expects to lose his job. In fairness, you can only admire his honesty (we actually feel quite sorry for him). Anyhow, Tony Pulis, anyone?
On an evening where Leeds leapfrogged West Brom into top spot and ended their unbeaten start to the season, the Croatian showed his class - entering the Leeds dressing room at full-time to congratulate their gritty performance.
Andy Davies and his match officials got a late decision horribly wrong - awarding a free-kick for Eric Lichaj’s foul on Jacob Murphy instead of a clear penalty. Sheffield Wednesday were trailing Hull at the time and lost 1-0…
It hasn’t always been - and still isn’t - plain sailing for Bamford at Leeds, but he was able to silence some of his critics by battling unbelievably well against West Brom. A goal and it would have been a perfect performance.
