Ex-Arsenal youngster DaSilva is proving to the Brentford faithful what he is capable of and tore poor Luton apart in a thumping 7-0 win. He assisted Ollie Watkins' first goal before bending one in brilliantly himself, and he made it 5-0 before half-time with a superb dummy and blast through the keeper's legs. He rounded things off in style by stroking him a penalty and he looks to be one of the breakout stars of this Championship season.

Leeds produced arguably their best performance of the season in their 4-0 thrashing of Middlesbrough at Elland Road, and mifdfielder Klich was the star performer. He scored twice in the victory, the first one somewhat fortunate but the second anything but, curling in a wondrous effort from outside the box as the home side turned on the style.

Watkins, playing as a centre-forward this season, seems ready for a step up to a higher level and after netting his 12th league goal of the season against Luton he showed the other side of his game too, laying on opportunities for Mathias Jensen to convert and then DaSilva later in a brilliant first half. Premier League teams are known to have been interested in the past and this summer could be the time for Watkins to make the grade.

A rapid-fire second half hat-trick from Puscas at Wigan turned the game in his team's favour, the third of which a brilliant, confident first-time volley to give his side the points. No-one touched the ball more in the opposition penalty area this weekend than Puscas (13) - a real poacher and one that Reading are lucky to have.

Barnsley desperately needed a win and under their new manager, Gerhard Struber, they got what they wanted against Hull, thanks to a superb display from midfielder Mike Steven-Bahre. His goal to put his team two goals in front was superbly taken with his left foot, and he laid the ball into the path of Alex Mowatt to convert the opener. Bahre also completed 48/54 passes and his 12 recoveries was the most of any Championship outfielder in the round.

HONOURABLE MENTIONS

Said Benrahma (8.8) was, like his other Brentford team-mates, in blistering form in the hammering of Luton.
