In the Championship, Congolese-Belgian Emile Mpenza scored for Plymouth Argyle in their 2-1 home win against Cardiff. Hameur Bouazza, born in France but an Algerian international, scored what proved to be a consolation goal for Charlton in their 5-2 defeat at home to Sheffield United. Another Malian, Jimmy Kebe, scored the only goal for Reading but it wasn’t enough as Southampton pulled off a shock 2-1 win. Scots-Nigerian Chris Iwelumo scored twice for Wolves and they stayed top beating Blackpool 2-0.
There was another full round of Championship games on Tuesday but Iwelumo was the only player to score, netting another brace as Wolves won 3-1 against Sheffield United.
