EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 04.10.20

2 min

A spectacular second-half collapse saw Brentford throw away a two-goal lead to lose 4-2 against Preston North End at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Ivan Toney’s double put the Bees into a comfortable lead at half-time before Scott Sinclair began the recovery seven minutes after the interval and then equalised on the hour.

Brad Potts added another to give Preston the lead three minutes later with Sean Maguire rounding off the comeback with a fourth in the 70th minute.

In Saturday’s action, new signing Macauley Bonne scored in stoppage time to earn QPR a 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday.

Yoann Barbet’s own goal gave the hosts the lead before Bonne’s leveller in the sixth minute of added time at Hillsborough.

It was less positive for Millwall on the road though, who fell to a 2-1 defeat to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium

Jake Bidwell broke the deadlock for the Swans in the early stages of the second-half, neatly converting Morgan Gibbs-White’s deep cross, but Millwall were swiftly back on level terms through Tom Bradshaw’s strike.

However, Swansea grabbed the winner in the 68th minute when Ben Cabango finally converted following a scramble in the box.
