Preston 3 – 2 Stoke
QPR 0 – 2 Southampton

Birmingham`s trip to Leicester was postponed because of strong winds and damage to the surrounding area meaning the game was unsafe. Burnley game against Norwich was also called of due to a waterlogged pitch meaning Burnley haven`t played a home game since before Christmas.

Cardiff ended their 11 game winless run with a victory away at Wolves, where their fans weren`t allowed into the stadium. Derby moved to the top of the league, 3 points ahead of Birmingham who now have 2 games in hand. 3rd place Preston keep up the pressure with a last minute victory over Stoke. The Lilywhites went 2-0 down before winning 3-2 thanks to a Kelvin Wilson overhead kick. Ipswich won the East Anglian derby, the first time the teams have met in a league match at Portman road for over 50 years.
