Sam Gallagher returned to action for a resurgent Birmingham City, who earned a crucial 2-1 win over Sheffield United at St Andrew’s in their relegation battle.

Gallagher was back in the squad for the first time since an away clash with Cardiff City in March after suffering with a calf problem and was introduced on 86 minutes in place of Lukas Jutkiewicz.

Mark Duffy had opened the scoring for Sheffield United when his shot towards the near post somehow squirmed under David Stockdale, but roared on by a vociferous home crowd, Marc Roberts’ leveller was followed in the second-half by Jacques Maghoma to complete the turnaround.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Matt Targett played the full 90 minutes and helped Fulham to a 3-0 win over Millwall, thanks to goals from Ryan Sessegnon, Kevin McDonald and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Harrison Reed also played the duration for loan club Norwich, as they drew 0-0 at Preston North End.

In League Two, Marcus Barnes was involved for Yeovil Town as they fell to a 4-1 defeat against Notts County at Meadow Lane.

Barnes played the full match but couldn’t help prevent the heavy defeat, while Ryan Seager watched on from the bench.

Young defender Ollie Cook was an unused substitute as Barrow were denied by a late Scott Rendell penalty at promotion-chasing Aldershot.

Jordy Clasie watched on as Club Brugge shared a thrilling 4-4 draw with Standard Liege, while Harry Lewis was on the bench as Dundee United lost 3-0 at Queen of the South.
