Derby were relegated from the Sky Bet Championship after losing 1-0 at QPR.

Uke Amos batted with two minutes from time to smack the knife into Wayne Rooney’s Rams.

Derby, who suffered a 21-point deduction for entering administration and breaching EFL financial rules, had sealed their fate when Reading equalized in the last minute to hold Swansea 4-4.

Reading hit back sensationally after trailing Swansea 4-1 with half an hour to go.

Lucas Joao converted a penalty for the Royals in the third minute, but Hannes Wolf quickly equalized with a wonderful flick into the top corner.

A brace from Joel Piroe, including Swansea’s first penalty of the season, and a brilliant shot from Michael Obafemi gave the visitors the lead.

But Tom Ince gave Reading hope and Joao climbed home before Tom McIntyre equalized in the fifth minute of added time.

Peterborough kept his hopes of survival alive with a 2-0 win at bottom Barnsley, who have played a game less than Derby.

Goals from Jack Marriott and Frankie Kent put Posh within six points of Reading with three games left.

Bournemouth boosted their automatic promotion hopes with a 3-0 win at Coventry.

Jamal Lowe gave the Cherries an early lead and Dominic Solanke scored both sides of the break to take his tally to 27 for the season.

Huddersfield remain four points adrift of Bournemouth after a 2-0 win at Middlesbrough.

Former Boro forward Jordan Rhodes marked his return to the Riverside with an assist and a goal as the in-form Terriers had 10 points from four games.

Rhodes set up Naby Sarr’s close-range header four minutes before the break before scoring his second goal of the season on the hour.

Boro, who slipped to ninth, is now four games without a win and is in danger of missing the play-offs.

Luton remains fourth after the Hatters’ Welsh boss Nathan Jones enjoyed a lucky return to South Wales.

Harry Cornick’s 71st-minute header secured Luton victory on a day that saw goalkeepers James Shea, James Bree and Fred Onyedinma suffer potentially costly injuries.

Millwall stayed in the play-off hunt by beating Hull 2-1 in the den.

A lucky rebound from Scott Malone put them ahead just after the break, and Tom Bradshaw quickly added another as the Lions secured six wins from eight games.

Tom Eaves picked up a late consolation for the Tigers but Millwall climbed up to seventh after Blackburn suffered a 1-0 home loss to Stoke.

Jacob Brown’s fourth-minute strike for the Potters proved crucial at Ewood Park.

Blackpool beat Birmingham 6-1 as Jake Beesley marked his first start since joining from Rochdale in January with a brace.

CJ Hamilton, Kenny Dougall, Jerry Yates (penalty) and Callum Connolly also scored for the Seasiders, while Ivan Sunjic was cold consolation for Birmingham.
