Still in the Championship, Queens Park Rangers won 2-1 on the road against Sammy Ameobi's Bolton Wanderers, with ex-Super Eagles invitee Ebere Eze netting his second goal of the season.

Ten minutes after the restart, Eze  smashed a shot into the bottom corner from 12 yards out and doubled QPR's lead in the process.

At the Rodney Parade Stadium, both Diallang Jaiyesimi and Olufela Olomola were among the goals for Yeovil Town in their 6-0 rout of Newport County in a League Two encounter.

Jaiyesimi assisted the opening goal before getting on the score sheet on the stroke of halftime and his second half replacement, Olomola added another for 5-0 in the 68th minute.

Emmanuel Oyeleke sealed the victory for Port Vale in a 2-0 win over Northampton Town at the Vale Park in another League Two game.
