Bristol City moved to the top of the Championship as first-half goals from Andreas Weimann and Nahki Wells earned them a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Robins opened the scoring in the 12th minute when the ball fell kindly for Weimann in the area, and he curled it into the bottom corner.

They doubled their lead ten minutes later when Wells hooked the ball home from Chris Martin's knockdown, but Luke Freeman pulled one back with Forest's first goal of the season.

City had goalkeeper Dan Bentley to thank for preserving the points as he denied Republic of Ireland international Cyrus Christie and Lyle Taylor with stunning saves.

Reading are up to second after George Puscas' strike was enough to see off Watford. Manchester United loanee James Garner crashed a free-kick against the crossbar for the visitors, but it was the Royals who scored the only goal of the game shortly before half-time when Puscas' shot deflected home.

Swansea stay fourth following a 2-1 win at home to Millwall.

Jake Bidwell broke the deadlock for the Swans in the early stages of the second half, neatly converting Morgan Gibbs-White's deep cross, but Millwall were swiftly back on level terms through Tom Bradshaw's strike.

Swansea grabbed the winner in the 68th minute, when Ben Cabango finally converted following a scramble in the box.

Veteran Wayne Rooney's brilliant late free-kick helped Derby to a 1-0 win at Norwich.
