EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 29.02.20

2 min

Brentford are now five games without a win after throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 away at Cardiff City.

Luka Racic’s early strike and Bryan Mbeumo’s accurate free-kick had the Bees on course for a result that would have cemented their status in the play-off places.

But the hosts rallied to get back on level terms thanks to headers from Junior Hoilett and Joe Ralls.

Fulham kept in touch with the Championship’s automatic promotion places thanks to a second home win in four days as they beat Preston 2-0.

Former England striker David Nugent scored an own goal to give the Cottagers the lead after 58 minutes and substitute Aboubakar Kamara scored a breakaway second in added time.

Charlton Athletic are now just two points and two places above the drop zone after a 4-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town.

Karlan Grant, signed by Huddersfield from Charlton in January last year, scored twice with substitutes Steve Mounie and Juninho Bacuna also on the scoresheet.

Meanwhile, QPR extended their unbeaten run to five games after an entertaining 2-2 draw with Birmingham City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium.

Scott Hogan gave the visitors the lead in the 24th minute at before goals from Marc Pugh (51) and Jordan Hugill (55) turned things around in the home side’s favour.

However, Hogan’s second, a late equaliser from poor QPR defending ensured Birmingham a share of the points.

Elsewhere, there was also a draw at The Den as Millwall played out a 1-1 draw with Bristol City.

Pedro Pereira gave the visitors a 10th-minute lead before Tomas Kalas’ own goal six minutes into the second-half ensured the Lions a point.

And in League One, AFC Wimbledon claimed a surprise 2-1 victory away to Gillingham.

A Regan Charles-Cook 87th minute strike cancelled out Joe Pigott’s early second-half effort for the Dons before Callum Reilly’s last-gasp goal sealed all three points.
