10-man Newcastle are back at the top of the English football Championship after a 2-1 home victory over Doncaster.

The Magpies supplanted fellow Premier League relegation victims West Bromwich Albion, who are now third after a goalless draw at Coventry.

Cardiff are second after ending up on the right side of a seven-goal thriller at Sheffield United.
