Cardiff clear at top of Championship

LONDON, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Cardiff City maintained their 100 per cent record after five matches to go three points clear at the top of England’s Championship (second tier), coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers 2-1 on Saturday.

Ipswich Town, the other side who had won their first four games, were surprisingly beaten 2-0 at home by Fulham.

Leeds United, last in the top flight in 2004, went into third place by winning 2-0 away to Nottingham Forest.

It was a bad day for relegated Sunderland, beaten 3-0 at Barnsley and dropping into the bottom six.

Brentford and Bolton Wanderers are the only clubs still without a win. (Reporting by Steve Tongue,; Editing by Neville Dalton)
