Both relegated clubs lose, 10-man Wednesday win at ReadingCoventry get result at St Andrew’s, Salford get maiden winNeil Warnock’s Cardiff returned to the division with a 3-2 defeat at Wigan. Joe Ralls’ expert finish put the Bluebirds into a 20th minute lead before Wigan’s Josh Windass missed a penalty after being fouled by Sean Morrison. Undeterred, Wigan equalised and then took the lead after goals from Michael Jacobs and Windass. Omar Bogle equalised against his former club, but Lee Evans’ whipped finish was the best goal and proved the winner of a hugely entertaining match.Fulham’s return to the second tier also began with a bump as they lost 1-0 at Barnsley, Luke Thomas scoring a 13th minute goal after cutting inside to shoot. The promoted South Yorkshire side were much the better team on a chastening day for Scott Parker. Steve Cooper’s reign as Swansea manager started with victory despite Hull’s Kamil Grosicki scoring a third-minute goal. The match turned around after half-time when Borja Baston and Mike van der Hoorn got on the scoresheet.
