Matt Targett and Fulham continued their scintillating run of form in the Championship with a 3-0 win over Sheffield United at Craven Cottage.

Targett played the full 90 minutes, as two Aleksandar Mitrovic strikes saw them take control before the break, before captain Tom Cairney added the third in the second-half.

The Whites’ unbeaten run now stands at 14 games as their hunt for an automatic promotion spot continues.

Harrison Reed was also involved in the midweek Championship action, playing the duration as Norwich and Nottingham Forest drew 0-0 at Carrow Road.

Daniel Farke’s men have now drawn five successive Championship games, which is their longest sequence of draws since 1994.

Elsewhere, Sam Gallagher came off the bench for Birmingham City as Garry Monk’s first game in charge ended in a narrow 1-0 home defeat to Middlesbrough.

Monk opted to partner Lukas Jutkiewicz and Che Adams in attack, with Gallagher introduced to the action on 60 minutes.

And Blues’ top goalscorer almost had the perfect impact when he engineered himself a chance, before dragging a low left-footed shot inches wide.
