Charlton Athletic claimed a huge win in their battle for Championship survival as Hull City dropped into the relegation zone at their expense.
Lee Bowyer’s side knew they would have been consigned to relegation on a points-per-game had the season not restarted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And despite a turbulent lockdown which saw top scorer Lyle Taylor refuse to play, speculation over Bowyer’s future and an ownership row, the Addicks claimed a precious 1-0 victory at the KCOM Stadium.
Captain Jason Pearce bundled the ball over the line from an 18th minute corner to seal the win and move Charlton up to 19th in the table.
Emiliano Marcondes came off the bench to tee up Said Benrahma with just two minutes on the clock remaining.
And the substitute added insult to injury by firing home three minutes later himself to move the Bees to just a point behind the third-placed Cottagers.
Meanwhile, Millwall’s promotion aspirations were dealt a blow with a disappointing 3-2 home defeat to Derby County.
Teenager Louie Sibley scored a magnificent solo goal to cancel out Matt Smith’s first-half opener.
Sibley then slotted home a second with 20 minutes to play before wrapping up the points in the closing stages before Jon Dadi Bodvarsson grabbed a late consolation for the Lions.
And finally, QPR lost 1-0 at home to strugglers Barnsley with Elliot Simoes’ early goal the difference at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
The young striker netted after just seven minutes and his tidy finish was enough to give the Reds a first win at Rangers since 1950, lifting the Tykes off the bottom of the table.
