Hull City go into tomorrow's Championship clash against Blackburn Rovers at the KCOM Stadium 10th in the Championship standings.

Jarrod Bowen got the goal for the Tigers in their 1-1 draw against Brentford on Saturday, an opener that was later cancelled out by Ollie Watkins in the second half at Griffin Park.

Tomorrow they face a Blackburn side who are hoping to build momentum after a patchy start to their 2019-20 season.

Here is a look at the winners and losers from this weekend's Championship action, which saw its first managerial casualty of the new season.

Winners:

Reading

After defeats to Yorkshire sides Sheffield Wednesday and Hull City in their opening two Championship games of the season, Reading picked up their first points of the season with a convincing 3-0 win over Cardiff City at the Madejski Stadium in Sunday's lunchtime kick-off.

Club record signing George Puscas made his mark on his full Championship debut for the Royals, scoring twice in the space of 15 first half minutes against the Bluebirds.

It moves Reading out of the bottom three after a struggling start to the new season, with Jose Gomes' side hoping that the hefty fee they forked out on new forwards Puscas and Lucas Joao will continue to prove their worth.

Millwall

Like Reading, Millwall's 2018-19 campaign was spent trying to avoid relegation down to League One, but an impressive start to the campaign from Neil Harris' side has got them looking at the top end of the table rather than the bottom.

On Saturday, a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at The Den ended the Owls' perfect start to the season and leaves the Lions in fifth place, level on points with the four teams above them.

Last season, it took Millwall 11 league matches to get to seven points and after three games, they find themselves as one of six teams to have not suffered a league defeat this season, although a trip across London in midweek to face Fulham may put those chances of remaining unbeaten for the time being to an end.

 

Blackburn Rovers

Like Reading, Blackburn's start to the season had been one consisting of consecutive defeats and also like the Royals, Rovers picked up their first win of the season against a side tipped to finish in and around the top six.

Blackburn were 1-0 winners over Middlesbrough at Ewood Park on Saturday with Danny Graham scoring from the penalty spot midway through the first half.

A much needed win for Tony Mowbray's side who recruited well over the summer by bringing in the likes of Bradley Johnson, Christian Walton and Sam Gallagher in the summer and they will be hoping to carry their form into tomorrow's clash with the Tigers.

 

Losers:

Jan Siewert

German boss Jan Siewert is the winner of an unwanted accolade as he became the first Championship manager to have been sacked this season.

A 2-1 defeat to Fulham was enough for Huddersfield Town to pull the plug on Siewert, who after just one win during his 19 games in charge of the Terriers, leaves Yorkshire with his reputation as a manager suffering a serious dent.

Siewert's win percentage of 5.3 percent spans across a spell that started in the Premier League and ends in the Championship's bottom three.

 

Huddersfield Town

The search for Siewert's replacement is well and truly on, the likes of Mark Hudson, Chris Hughton and Sol Campbell have emerged as the early favourites to take over at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield have only won one game since the start of December, their form is dreadful and regardless of whether it comes from an uninspiring performance, the Terriers are in desperate need of a win from somewhere.

One area where they can take solace from is striker Karlan Grant, who has netted all three of their goals this season and keeping him sharp may just get Huddersfield out of their horrendous rot.

 

Middlesbrough

A disappointing start to managerial life for Jonathan Woodgate continued as his Middlesbrough side suffered a 1-0 defeat against fellow strugglers Blackburn.

After scoring three in the opening weekend draw away at Luton Town, 1-0 defeats to Brentford and Blackburn and a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Crewe Alexandra have made it a very disappointing week for the Boro.

Consecutive home games against Wigan Athletic and Millwall now feel crucial into lifting the pressure, which is desperately needed at the Riverside Stadium.
