|Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was denied a first win as QPR boss with Nahki Wells’ late goal snatching Huddersfield a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.|
It was a tight match in west London and the three points looked to be sealed when the Hoops netted in the second half through Sebastian Polter.
Wells then scored late on to deny the Dutch boss victory in his fifth attempt in charge of the Sky Bet Championship club.
Andre Gray’s hat-trick helped Burnley to bounce back from a 3-0 Boxing Day defeat at Hull to beat Bristol City 4-0 at Turf Moor.
The Clarets took a 2-0 lead before the break, with thanks to a double from record purchase Gray.
The 24-year-old summer signing from Brentford, who made his Clarets debut against the Robins in August, took his tally to 13 goals in 19 appearances.
He opened the scoring after a fast counter attack in the 37th minute, before adding another in first half stoppage time when he controlled well in the box before neatly dispatching.
Scott Arfield added a third before Gray completed his hat-trick to confirm the three points for Sean Dyche’s men.
Gray’s former club Brentford won their third match under new boss Dean Smith, with a 2-1 scoreline at Reading.
Ryan Woods’ 25-yard effort rifled past goalkeeper Jonathan Bond before Garath McCleary drew the Royals level shortly before the hour mark after combining well in the box with Matej Vydra.
Sergi Canos, who extended his stay on loan from Liverpool yesterday, put the Bees back in front with less than 20 minutes left on the clock, as he beat three players before firing home from the edge of the box.
That strike made it back-to-back defeats for Reading under returning boss Brian McDermott and it got even worse as Michael Hector was dismissed for simulation late on, when the Reading man was shown a second yellow card.
Jacques Maghoma’s second-half strike set Birmingham on their way to a 1-0 victory over MK Dons at St Andrew’s.
Jordan Graham scored his first Wolves goal as they ended a three-game winless run.
After good work by Benik Afobe, Graham reacted quickly after a scramble in the box, to finish past shot-stopper Stephen Henderson.
Harry Lennon's late own goal then sealed the three points for Kenny Jackett's men at the Valley.
Finally, Paul Gallagher’s goal helped Preston to all three points with a 1-0 win over Hull at Deepdale.
Daniel Johnson’s well-crafted free-kick made its way to Gallagher, who fired home to hand Simon Grayson’s men a deserved lead, as they held on for the final 24 minutes.
Elsewhere, earlier today, strugglers Bolton ended a 17-game winless run with a vital 1-0 victory over local rivals Blackburn and Middlesbrough will host Sheffield Wednesday later this evening.
