Millwall recorded a fourth consecutive draw after being held 1-1 by Reading at The Den.

Jed Wallace’s free-kick just before the interval had given the Lions the lead only for Lucas Joao to equalise eight minutes after the interval.

In Tuesday night’s games, QPR claimed their first win in three matches as they beat Rotherham United 3-2 at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Michael Smith cancelled out Ilias Chair’s opener for the home side, who struck twice just before half-time to take control.

Bright Osayi-Samuel’s effort was followed by a Lyndon Dykes penalty after Daniel Barlaser handled, with Freddie Ladapo pulling a goal back six minutes from time.

Meanwhile, a goal from in-from striker Ivan Toney gave Brentford a 1-0 victory at Barnsley, extending their unbeaten run to six league games.

The forward was largely kept quiet throughout the 90 minutes but his effort – his 12th of the season – midway through the second half proved decisive.

In League One, in-form Charlton Athletic slumped to a shock 4-2 defeat away to strugglers Burton Albion.

The Addicks went into the encounter unbeaten in eight league matches but goals from Lucas Akins and Joe Powell gave Burton a strong start before Paul Smyth reduced the deficit shortly before half-time.

Sam Hughes restored Burton’s two-goal advantage and despite Chuks Aneke pulling another back, Charles Vernam drilled home Burton’s fourth in the 76th minute.

AFC Wimbledon’s own five match unbeaten run also came to an end as the Dons fell to a 2-1 defeat at Gillingham.

Kyle Dempsey’s opener for the Gills was cancelled out by Ben Heneghan before Dominic Samuel hit a 57th-minute winner.

And in League Two, Leyton Orient moved to within a point and place of the Play-Off spots with a 1-0 win over Bradford City at Brisbane Road.

Dan Happe headed in a Jordan Maguire-Drew cross from a free-kick just past the hour mark for his first goal of the season.
