QPR claimed their first points since the restart with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside.

Jordan Hugill’s long range first-half winner lifted Mark Warburton’s side to the 53-point mark, all but guaranteeing their survival in theChampionship.

In Saturday’s games, Said Benrahma grabbed a hat-trick as Brentford kept up their bid for automatic promotion with a 3-0 victory over crisis club Wigan Athletic.

The Algerian opened the scoring after 19 minutes then made it 2-0 just before the hour-mark with what looked like an intended cross.

And Benrahma completed his hat-trick before the afternoon went from bad to worse for the visitors as Joe Garner was sent-off for a bad challenge.

Fulham also kept up the chase as Josh Onomah lashed the only goal of the game deep into stoppage time to sink Birmingham City 1-0 at Craven Cottage.

The Blues had chances through Jude Bellingham but it looked like they had snared a point late on when keeper Lee Camp produced a brilliant double save to deny Joe Bryan and Bobby Decordova-Reid.

In Friday night’s game, Millwall kept their faint Play-Off hopes alive with a 1-0 win over south London rivals Charlton Athletic.

Centre back Jake Cooper blasted home after goalkeeper Dillon Phillips spilled Connor Mahoney’s long-range strike, to hand the Lions their first win since the league’s resumption.
