LONDON - Burnley kept the pressure on Championship leaders Leicester thanks to a 2-1 win at Yeovil, while QPR remain in the hunt for automatic promotion to the Premier League after a 3-1 victory over Ipswich yesterday.

Leicester had opened up a seven-point gap at the top of the second-tier table with a 4-1 rout of promotion rivals Derby on Friday.

But second-placed Burnley reduced that advantage to four points with a comfortable success against struggling Yeovil.

At Portman Road, Harry Redknapp's third placed QPR scored three times in 22 second-half minutes to close within five points of Leicester.

Fifth placed Nottingham Forest had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

David Lopez hit the only goal as sixth-placed Brighton boosted their play-off challenge with a 1-0 win at the Amex Stadium to end Birmingham's 10-match unbeaten run.
