Fulham missed the chance to climb into the Championship’s automatic promotion places as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Millwall at The Den.

Aleksandar Mitrovic put the Cottagers ahead from close range after just three minutes before they were pegged back almost immediately by a controversial Jon Dadi Bodvarsson strike.

Jed Wallace had the chance put the Lions ahead from the penalty spot midway through the first-half but fired onto the bar, while Fulham nearly snatched a winner in the final seconds when Neeskens Kebano headed a corner onto the crossbar.

Tuesday evening saw Brentford hold Leeds United to a 1-1 draw in their top-of-the-table clash at Griffin Park.

The Bees were gifted the opening goal in the 26th minute after visiting stopper Kiko Casilla failed to deal with a backpass from defender Liam Cooper and Said Benrahma gratefully slotted home.

However, Leeds equalised in the 38th minute when Cooper knocked a loose ball in from close range following a corner to leave the top of the table as tight as it was at the start of the night.

Elsewhere, Charlton Athletic claimed an impressive 1-0 victory over high-flying Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

The Addicks scored the only goal of the game through Lyle Taylor after 24 minutes, the forward lashing the ball in at the far post after a break down the left from Naby Sarr.

Meanwhile, QPR ended a run of four straight defeats in all competitions with a drab goalless draw against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon also claimed a scoreless draw at home to promotion-chasing Ipswich Town.

And finally, Leyton Orient made it back-back victories as they beat Mansfield Town 2-1 at Brisbane Road.

James Dayton had given the hosts the lead on the stroke of half-time before Kelland Watts brought the Stags level only for Mal Benning to turn the ball into his own net to give Orient all three points.
