Wonderful Woodrow silences Fulham amid manic Championship weekend

The former Craven Cottage man was at the heart of a superb - and surprising - Barnsley win

Bansley's stunning 3-0 win at Fulham was unquestionably the performance of the round in the Championship, and they were always going to need their keeper to come up big in the contest. Collins made eight saves in total, including a superb block with his feet in the second half to deny Aleksandar Mitrovic in the second half that laid the foundation for victory.

Alongside Collins Woodrow tore a fragile Fulham asunder. The Tykes may have been helped by a generous performance from Marek Rodak in the home goal, but Woodrow, facing his former club, produced a superb display leading the line. He slotted home a penalty to commence the contest, then showcased his ball-winning ability before his long pass released Jacob Brown to score.

He rounded things off with a confident run to the goal-line and then squeezing his shot inside the near post. Barnsley will need a few more performances like this if they are to get out of trouble.

On a weekend where conditions were treacherous Hutchinson produced a commanding display for Millwall as they earned an excellent away win at Preston.

He was in the right place at the right to glance home the decider, but it was his defensive statistics that were so impressive, winning a huge 13 duels, 11 aerial duels, as well as recording three interceptions and five clearances. Preston just couldn't get past the defender on the day.

Christian Walton
GK - Blackburn - 24 yrs

6Ball recovered
25Long balls
12Final third passes

Even Blackburn fans would admit that Charlton created the better chances and that they had their goalkeeper to thank for leaving with a precious three points.

Walton made a series of fine stops, including a point-blank stop from a Lyle Taylor header, before at least two top-class efforts in the second half, clawing a curling shot away that seemed destined for the top corner. Blackburn are now firmly in the play-off hunt thanks mainly to Walton's heroics.

Stewart Downing
W (R), AM (L) - Blackburn - 35 yrs

10Ball recovered
52Passes completed

But at the other end of the pitch, Downing's wand of a left foot is still providing valuable assists and he chipped in with another two in the victory at Charlton.

His first was a simple pass where John Buckley did most of the work, but his second was a trademark delivery from the former Liverpool winger, landing the ball perfectly for Tosin Adaraboiyo to convert.


QPR's Ryan Manning (8.3) provided an assist but created three Big Chances in total as the creative influence in his side's 4-2 win over Stoke.
