Charlton Athletic boosted their Championship survival hopes with a hard-fought victory over QPR at the Valley.

Darren Pratley’s 12th-minute header proved the difference between the London rivals to give the Addicks a second consecutive 1-0 win since the resumption of football.

It moved Lee Bowyer’s team onto 45 points while the Hoops endured a frustrating afternoon for the second Saturday in succession.

Elsewhere, Fulham’s hopes of automatic promotion were left in tatters after a 3-0 defeat away to league leaders Leeds United.

Patrick Bamford’s 14th league goal of the campaign set Marcelo Bielsa’s men off and running before winger Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison sealed the win.

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic was lucky to avoid censure for elbowing Ben White in the face while Neeskens Kebano was sent off late on after receiving two bookings.

Meanwhile, Millwall missed a big chance in their Play-Off push with a goalless draw away to bottom of the table Barnsley.

The Lions are now five points off the top six having lost their first game of the restart against Derby County last week.

And in Friday night’s game, Brentford boosted their automatic promotion hopes with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Ollie Watkins’ 16th minute goal was the difference, closing the gap to second-placed Baggies to just five points.
