Jordan Hugill was on target yet again for Queens Park Rangers as the on-loan striker scored twice to win all three points at Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon.

The in-form front man scored twice in the second half to secure the win for his current side who had fallen behind to Steven Fletcher's 23rd minute opening goal.

Hugill, who is spending the season at Loftus Road levelled the scores on the hour mark after latching onto Nahki Wells through ball, which he drilled home beyond Wednesday 'keeper Keiran Westwood.

And four minutes later the former Preston man secured all three points for the visitors when he converted a low cross from Ryan Manning.

Hugill has now scored five goals for the R's this season taking him to the top of the goal-scoring charts in the Championship, where he is joined by Swansea's Borja Baston, Charlton's Lyle Taylor and Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham).

Elsewhere in the Championship, Grady Diangana scored what proved to be the winning goal for West Bromwich Albion as they secured a well-fought 3-2 win at home to Blackburn Rovers.


Former Hammers target Bradley Dack put the visitors ahead in the opening minute of the game before strikes from Matt Phillips (22 minutes) and Jake Livermore put Albion back in front.

Diangana made it 3-1 to the home side when he picked up the ball close to the centre circle before running half a pitch and finishing coolly over Rovers' advancing 'keeper five minutes ahead of the break.

Bradley Johnson scored again for the visitors on the cusp of half time, but with no further goals in the second period West Brom held on to secure the win.

Finally, Josh Cullen featured at the heart of Charlton's midfield as Athletic ran out 2-0 winners at Reading - a result that keeps them second in the table, four points ahead of Queens Park Rangers.

The Southend-born youngster - who is on a season-long loan for a second successive year at The Valley - played the entire 90 minutes once again as goals from Conor Gallagher and Lyle Taylor (a penalty) ensured the south London side remained unbeaten in the league.
