Brentford claimed their first Championship win of the season as Ollie Watkins’ second-half strike secured a 1-0 victory at Middlesbrough.

Thomas Frank’s side were completely outplayed in the first-half but were much-improved after the interval and were rewarded when Watkins converted Sergi Canos’ low cross from close range.

The result means the Bees are up and running after losing their opening game of the season to Birmingham City.

Meanwhile, Charlton Athletic made it two league wins from two with a 3-1 victory over Stoke City at The Valley.

Goals from Lyle Taylor, Chuks Aneke and Conor Gallagher gave Lee Bowyer’s side the points after Tom Ince’s long-range effort had levelled the match in the first half.

Elsewhere, Millwall moved on to four points from their opening two games after an entertaining 1-1 draw away to West Bromwich Albion.

The hosts took the lead through an Alex Pearce own goal in the 57th minute before substitute Matt Smith salvaged a point for Millwall in the 75th minute when he fired in from close range.

And QPR also had to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town at the newly renamed Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Grant Hall’s late equaliser cancelled out Karlan Grant’s penalty three minutes into the second half.

However, goals from Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrovic helped give Fulham their first victory of the season with a comfortable 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers at Craven Cottage.

It wasn’t good news for AFC Wimbledon though, who lost for the second successive weekend, going down 2-1 away to Fleetwood Town.

Goals from Paddy Madden and Josh Morris saw the Cod Army come from behind to beat the Dons at Highbury after Kwesi Appiah had given Wally Downes’ side the lead at the break.

And finally, Leyton Orient were outclassed 3-0 away to Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield Town.

Theo Archibald, Emmanuel Osadebe and Theo Vassell did the damage for The Silkmen.
