EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 31.08.19

2 min

Brentford claimed their first home win of the season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Derby County.

The game was won in the first-half when Bryan Mbeumo grabbed his first league goal for the club before Ollie Watkins weighed in with two more before the interval.

The Rams were simply no match for a Bees side that dominated possession, outplayed and out-thought the visitors throughout.

And there was also another impressive win for Charlton Athletic as they extended their unbeaten Championship start to six games with a 2-0 victory at Reading.

After a low-key opening, the Addicks kicked into gear in the second period, scoring six minutes after the interval from Jonathan Leko’s deflected strike.

And Lyle Taylor wrapped up another impressive victory for Lee Bowyer’s side when he slotted home an 80th-minute penalty.

Meanwhile, a second-half Jordan Hugill brace gave QPR all three points as they came from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Hillsborough.

The Owls had taken the lead through a Steven Fletcher penalty in the first-half before two Hugill goals in four minutes wrapped up the points for the visitors.

Elsewhere, Millwall were forced to settle for a point after Jed Wallace’s early penalty was cancelled out by Kamil Grosicki’s bizarre 40-yard free-kick.

Grosicki’s floated 18th minute effort caught everyone, including Millwall keeper Bartosz Bialkowski, by surprise and nestled in the far corner when everyone expected a cross.

Both sides missed chances to take all three points with Hull later reduced to nine men as injury forced substitute Jon Toral off before Josh Magennis was dismissed late on.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon are still searching for their first league win of the season after playing out a goalless draw at home to Wycombe Wanderers.

And in League Two, Chris Neal’s late own goal salvaged Leyton Orient a point from a 1-1 draw at Salford City, who had taken an early lead through Richie Towell.
