Hull moved up to ninth in the Championship table on Wednesday after easily dispatching of Preston with a 4-0 win, with Bowen the best player in this round of fixtures in England's second tier. He scored his first goal with an opportunistic finish from close range before turning provider for Kamil Grosicki with a perfect reversed cross from the byline. With the score at 3-0, he would earn a deserved second goal for himself after a direct run down the right before catching the keeper out with a finish at the near post. He sent 21 passes into the final third, had 10 touches inside the opposition box and completed four dribbles.
Cairney ran the show for Fulham in the comfortable 3-0 win versus Derby, completing an astonishing 103 out of 110 attempted passes. To put that into context, the second-highest amount of completed passes in this round of Championship fixtures was from Brentford's Ethan Pinnock with 90. He also had more touches than anyone in the league this week, and earned a deserved goal late on with a coolly taken finish with his left foot across the goalkeeper.
Like team-mate Cairney, Mitrovic is proving that he is too good to be in the Championship. He scored the second Fulham goal on the night against the Rams, finding himself positioned perfectly in front of the keeper at a corner-kick to allow the ball to glance off hid head into the net. He unselfishly passed square for Cairney to score the third to earn an assist, and was a thorn in the side of the opposition all night, winning six aerial duels and making four ball recoveries.
QPR went down 4-0 against Nottingham Forest, and simply couldn't handle the pace and direct running of Ameobi, who recorded two assists. The first came after a dash down the left wing before picking out Lewis Grabban with a pin-point cross to the back post. His next was wonderfully selfless as he pounced in front of a spilled save by the keeper to prod to the side for Alfa Semedo to score from close range. He completed two dribbles, and sent 13 passes into the final third.
Iorfa was effective at both ends of the pitch as Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 at home to Birmingham, as he assisted his team's only goal with 10 minutes to go for Kadeem Harris. Defensively, he was solid as a rock, winning 13/19 duel and 6/8 aerial duels as well as making an incredible 13 ball recoveries.
Much like Iorfa, Christopher Schindler (7.9) helped out in attack and defence for his team, as Huddersfield drew with Swansea. He won 6/8 duels and 100% of his tackles, and complemented this by assisting the home side's solitary goal.
ROUND TO FORGET
Ryan Ledson (4.8) was fairly hapless for Preston in the loss against Hull as the visitors' midfield and defence was overrun. He only won one tackle the entire game, and completed just 13 passes.
