Millwall put in a clinical display to record their first Championship victory of the season with a 1-0 win at Rotherham United.

Jed Wallace scored the only goal of the game in the 50th minute, taking advantage of a Michael Ihiekwe mistake before rounding Rotherham keeper Jamal Blackman to stroke home.

There was also victory for Brentford who christened their new ground with their first goals of the season in a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Josh Dasilva, Marcus Forss and Bryan Mbeumo struck in the second-half as the Bees marked their opening league match at the shiny 17,250-capacity Brentford Community Stadium with a deserved victory.

Friday night’s game saw QPR fall to a frustrating 3-2 defeat against Coventry City at St Andrew’s.

The first-half saw Lyndon Dykes’ spot-kick cancelled out by Matt Godden before Callum O’Hare put Coventry back ahead in the second-half.

Yoann Barbet then thought he had rescued a point for QPR before Kyle McFadzean grabbed a late winner.

League One saw an eight goal thriller as AFC Wimbledon and Plymouth shared the points in a 4-4 draw at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The Dons twice came from behind, with Joe Pigott cancelling out George Cooper’s opener before Shane McLoughlin did the same to Conor Grant either side of half-time.

Pigott then put Wimbledon ahead with his second on the hour mark and Ryan Longman made it four but Niall Canavan and Dominic Telford scored within two minutes to earn Plymouth a draw.

Elsewhere, Charlton Athletic welcomed fans back into their stadium but it was Doncaster Rovers who were celebrating at the final whistle as they secured a 3-1 victory at The Valley.

Madger Gomes, a Charlie Barker own goal and Tyreece John-Jules put Rovers three up before Conor Washington scored a consolation mid-way through the second-half.

And finally, a late equaliser by Ruel Sotiriou earned Leyton Orient a point as they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home to Mansfield Town.

The visitors deservedly went in front with goals from Jordan Bowery and Andy Cook before the O’s reduced the deficit through Danny Johnson before Sotiriou’s late point-saver.
