- Boro top of Championship after outclassing Birmingham
- Barnsley defeat Bradford in derby, goose at Macclesfield
Jay Rodriguez got West Brom’s season up and running with a double in a thrilling 4-3 victory at Norwich. Rodriguez scored twice after Jordan Rhodes claimed his first goal for the hosts having earlier missed a penalty. The on-loan Leicester midfielder Harvey Barnes’s second goal in as many games put the Baggies 3-1 up and although Teemu Pukki’s goal threatened a Norwich comeback, Hal Robson-Kanu made sure of the points before Grant Hanley’s consolation.
