Norwich’s Championship season got off to a poor start as they were defeated 1-0 by Cardiff in a game that saw both teams have players red carded.

The Canaries lost their place in the Premier League last season after finishing bottom and are tipped as one of the favourites to bounce back up.

However, they went a goal down just minutes into the second half with Romaine Sawyers scoring on his Bluebirds debut.

Perry Ng was then sent off for a second bookable offence, though Norwich were unable to capitalise on the man advantage – lasting only 12 minutes in any case before captain Grant Hanley was dismissed for picking up a second yellow card.

Charlie Cresswell’s double saw Millwall go top of the table after beating Stoke 2-0 with the centre-half scoring in both halves on his debut.

The Tigers sit second in the table after a late goal saw Hull beat Bristol City 2-1.

Andreas Weimann continued his goalscoring form from last season to put the Robins ahead at the half-hour mark, but Hull came from behind to earn their first three points of the season thanks to Ozan Tufan’s second-half penalty and Jean Michael Seri’s deflected stoppage-time strike.

Blackburn were victorious as Lewis Travis’ goal made the difference to beat Queens Park Rangers and Callum Connolly scored in the 9th minute for Blackpool to secure a 1-0 win against Reading.

Swansea came from behind to draw 1-1 with newly-promoted Rotherham, while last season’s League One champions Wigan picked up a point after being held to a goalless draw against Preston, who had Ched Evans sent off late on, and Luton were held to 0-0 draw by Birmingham.

Middlesbrough and West Brom played out a 1-1 draw then on Sunday, the same scoreline came at Sunderland against Coventry.

In League One, Conor Hourihane scored on his Derby debut with 10 minutes remaining against Oxford.

Forest Green, promoted from League Two, celebrated a late winner at Bristol Rovers to take three points on their debut at this level.

Peterborough, relegated alongside Derby last season, came from two goals behind to win 3-2 at Cheltenham.

Barnsley – who also dropped down from the Championship – were beaten 1-0 at Plymouth as Finn Isaac Azaz’s goal on the verge of half-time proved the winner.

Fisayo Dele-Bashiru scored twice as 10-man Sheffield Wednesday battled to a thrilling 3-3 draw at home to Portsmouth.

Wycombe netted three as goals from David Wheeler, Anis Mehmeti and Josh Scowen secured a comfortable 3-0 success over Burton.

Two late goals saw Accrington and Charlton share the spoils in a 2-2 draw after Korede Adedoyin levelled for the hosts after the Addicks thought they had won it through Miles Leaburn’s late effort.

Nathan Smith and Connor Hall scored helped Port Vale come from behind to beat Fleetwood 2-1, the visitors had taken an early lead through Daniel Batty.

Harvey Knibbs hit the only goal of the game as Cambridge beat MK Dons 1-0, while Morecambe v Shrewsbury ended 0-0.

Lincoln drew 1-1 at home to Exeter, who had led through Sam Nombe only for Tom Hopper to get an equaliser, with Ipswich coming from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Bolton, Lee Evans cancelling out Aaron Morley’s penalty.

Stockport’s return to League Two ended in disappointment and a 3-2 home defeat to Barrow, a surprise result considering the Hatters are favourites for promotion.

Grimsby, promoted via the play-offs, fell to a 2-0 defeat at Leyton Orient with George Moncur scoring with a penalty three minutes into the second half before Tom James doubled the advantage eight minutes later.

Danny Johnson scored a hat-trick as Walsall won 4-0 at home to Hartlepool, the striker netting in the 27th, 48th and 73rd minutes after after Brandon Comley (21) had broken the deadlock.

Goals from Dan Agyei (14) and Lachlan Brook (22) gave Crewe a 2-1 victory at Rochdale, for whom Devante Rodney (69) got one back.

Alex Pattison (43), on-loan Huddersfield midfielder Matty Daly (51) and Jack Muldoon (76) gave Harrogate a 3-0 home win over Swindon, while Kristian Dennis’ fifth-minute effort was enough for Carlisle to win 1-0 over Crawley.

Salford confidently won 2-0 at home to Mansfield, thanks to goals from debutant Callum Hendry (five) and Brandon Thomas-Asante (28).

Ryan Haynes’ 89th-minute goal gave Northampton a 3-2 win over Colchester, while Sam Hoskins (27 and 74, penalty) twice had the hosts ahead but Freddie Sears (42, penalty) and Noah Chilvers (79) pegged them back, only for Haynes to win it for the hosts late on.

Jake Reeves (40) and debutant Jordan Roberts (84) helped Steve Evans’ Stevenage win 2-1 at Tranmere.
