Harrison Reed’s Norwich City provided the perfect farewell appearance for veteran midfielder Wes Hoolahan with a 2-1 win over Leeds United at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

Reed played the full 90 minutes for the Canaries who were treated to a goal and an assist from the departing Hoolahan who is to leave Norwich after 10 seasons and 352 games with the club.

Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips opened the scoring from 25 yards before Hoolahan levelled five minutes later with a deflected shot which beat keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell with the help of a deflection and the post.

The Irishman then assisted Josh Murphy who fired in to complete the comeback 21 minutes from time.

Sam Gallagher and Birmingham City will have to wait until the final day of the season to decide their Championship fate as a result of their 3-1 reverse at QPR.

Blues sit two points clear of the drop zone going into their last fixture against Fulham next weekend after a bright start ended in defeat in West London.

Che Adams gave them the lead before goals from Bright Osayi-Samuel, Ilias Chair and Matt Smith sealed the points for the R’s.

Saints’ Gallagher was a second-half substitute for goalscorer Adams, featuring for the final 37 minutes of the match.

Elsewhere in the division, Matt Targett completed just 40 minutes of Fulham’s 2-1 success over Sunderland at Craven Cottage on Friday night, the full-back withdrawn due to injury.

Targett’s Fulham went behind to their relegated visitors early on but rallied either side of the break thanks to goals from Lucas Piazon and Aleksandar Mitrovic to extend their unbeaten run to 23 matches.

The Cottagers temporarily held the second automatic place after victory but slipped back to third after Cardiff City’s 2-0 win over Hull City the following day. 

Youngsters Ryan Seager and Ollie Cook meanwhile were unused substitutes as Yeovil and Barrow were beaten by Mansfield and Chester respectively.

In Belgium, Jordy Clasie came off the bench for the final five minutes of Club Brugge’s 1-1 draw with Genk in the Belgian Pro League play-offs.

In the Scottish Championship, goalkeeper Harry Lewis watched on as Dundee United saw off second-place Livingston by two goals to nil.
