EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 30.01.21

2 min

High-flying Brentford made it 18 Championship games unbeaten with a 7-2 thrashing of strugglers Wycombe Wanderers at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Goals from Ethan Pinnock, Sergi Canos, Josh Dasilva and a brace apiece for Tariqe Fosu and Ivan Toney did the damage – although the latter may well stake a post-match claim for his first Bees hat-trick by claiming he got the final touch on one of Fosu’s efforts.

Early first-half equalisers from Uche Ikpeazu and Admiral Muskwe had made the promotion-chasers sweat in an end-to-end opening 45 minutes.

The result consolidates Brentford’s position in the Play-Off places, sitting third and two points behind second-placed Swansea City but with a game in hand.

Elsewhere, Millwall left South Wales with a point after playing out a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Cardiff City.

Aden Flint’s early own goal put the Lions in control before Kieffer Moore popped up with 19 minutes left to ensure the two clubs sit side by side in mid-table.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon remain in the relegation zone after suffering a 2-0 home defeat to MK Dons.

Two quickfire second-half goals from Matt O’Riley and Matthew Sorinola were enough to put the game beyond the hosts – who have now lost five consecutive games at the new Plough Lane.

And in League Two, Leyton Orient dropped off the Play-Off pace with a 2-0 defeat away to Bolton Wanderers.

There was little to choose between the teams until defender James Brophy, under pressure from Harry Brockbank, turned Lloyd Isgrove’s cross into his own net after 67 minutes.

And two minutes later Eoin Doyle wrapped up the win with a low right foot shot from 18 yards after good work by Arthur Gnahoua.
