EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 27.09.20

2 min

Charlton Athletic’s first league trip to Lincoln City in 60 years ended in a controversial 2-0 defeat at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln opened the scoring against the run of play in first-half stoppage time after Jorge Grant rifled into an empty net after initially seeing his penalty saved by Charlton keeper Ben Amos.

However, the midfielder appeared to be offside as he received the rebounded ball back from the onrushing Harry Anderson – much to the annoyance of Lee Bowyer’s side.

And the hosts secured the points two minutes from time when Lewis Montsma snuck in at the back post to powerfully head home Grant’s corner.

In Saturday’s games, Ivan Toney’s first Brentford goal, a 21st-minute penalty after being brought down in the area, salvaged a 1-1 draw against Millwall.

Jed Wallace opened the scoring for the Lions in the fourth minute as Mason Bennett caught Brentford’s Pontus Jansson out of position to tee up the forward.

There was also a 1-1 draw in the game between QPR and Middlesbrough at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Chuba Akpom scored on his debut to put Boro ahead before Bright Osayi-Samuel quickly hit back for the hosts and was a threat throughout.

And in League One, Steve Seddon announced his return to AFC Wimbledon in style by scoring the winner in their 1-0 win at Fleetwood Town.

The left-back, who arrived on loan from Birmingham City earlier in the week, struck shortly before half-time to give the Dons an unlikely victory after spending much of the game on the back foot.
