Matt Targett helped Fulham to extend their unbeaten league run to 15 games as they won 2-1 away at Preston North End in the Championship.

The Saints full back played the duration of the clash, with Aleksander Mitrovic opening the scoring with 20 minutes left to play, before Sean Maguire’s leveller for the hosts.

However, Mitrovic was the man to win it again for the Whites when he headed home Tom Cariney’s cross in stoppage time.

There was no such luck for Harrison Reed though, who played 79 minutes as Norwich City came out the wrong side of a seven-goal thriller at Hull City.

The visitors were 3-1 ahead after James Maddison’s 21-minute hat-trick, which included two penalties, responded to Jackson Irvine’s early goal.

Two penalties from Abel Hernandez levelled things before Harry Wilson’s late winner made it 4-3.

Elsewhere, Sam Gallagher played 90 minutes as Birmingham City fell to a 3-2 defeat at Cardiff City.

The Blues produced a spirited second-half fight back after three first-half goals from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Craig Bryson and Callum Paterson had put the hosts firmly in control.

Craig Gardner pulled one back from the penalty spot, before Maxime Colin’s finish in stoppage time.

A spirited second-half was not enough for Gallagher and Birmingham

In League Two, Marcus Barnes replaced Sam Surridge on 60 minutes, as Yeovil Town lost 2-0 to Newport County.

Young defender Ollie Cook also gained valuable experience in the National League, completing the full 90 minutes of Barrow’s 3-1 defeat to league leaders Macclesfield Town.

In Belgium, Jordy Clasie played 62 minutes of Club Brugge’s 1-0 away win over St Truiden before being replaced by Lior Rafaelov. Ruud Vormer netted the only goal.
