2 min

Millwall had to settle for a point as they drew 1-1 with Cardiff City in Neil Harris’ first return to The Den after leaving 13 months ago.

Cardiff boss Harris, who spent 17 seasons at Millwall as a player, coach and then manager, saw his side struggle to respond to Matt Smith’s 35th-minute opener.

However, the Bluebirds finally hit back with 10 minutes to go through Kieffer Moore’s late equaliser before both sides spurned glorious late chances to find a winner.

There was also a 1-1 draw for QPR against much-fancied Watford at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Ben Wilmot’s third minute opener gave the Hornets the perfect start before Ilias Chair’s 77th-minute equaliser earned the Hoops a deserved point.

Brentford also had to settle for a point away to Wycombe Wanderers with the Bees playing out a frustrating goalless draw.

Bryan Mbeumo came closest to breaking the deadlock with Wycombe goalkeeper Ryan Allsop making a number of important saves.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon beat Rochdale 1-0 courtesy of Ethan Chislett’s stoppage-time winner at Spotland.

Rochdale bossed possession but lacked guile to open up the visitors’ defence, while the Dons threatened on the counter-attack before Chislett’s decisive late strike.

In the early kick-off, Charlton Athletic extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a 1-1 draw at Gillingham.

Substitute Chuks Aneke rescued a point after Jordan Graham put the Gills ahead from a controversial penalty after referee Robert Lewis ruled substitute John Akinde had been bundled over by Chris Gunter.

And in League Two, a hat-trick from Danny Johnson gave Leyton Orient a comprehensive 3-0 win over Harrogate Town at Brisbane Road.

The forward struck twice in the first-half with stunning drives before completing the milestone with the simplest of headers.

The victory brought an end to O’s run of four successive defeats in all competitions and lifted them to within two points of a Play-Off place.
