Brentford battled back to claim a point away to Huddersfield Town with a 1-1 draw at the John Smith’s Stadium.

A run of one win from their last six away contests has undermined the Bees’ automatic promotion hopes and they gifted Huddersfield’s Lewis O’Brien an opener after only seven minutes.

However, Mads Bech Sorensen’s second-half equaliser means Brentford are up to third in the Championship table albeit nine points adrift of second-placed Watford.

In Good Friday’s action, QPR claimed a comfortable 3-0 victory over Coventry City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Chris Willock put them ahead after just 75 seconds and there was no way back for the visitors after Michael Rose’s own goal midway through the first-half.

And the lively Ilias Chair sealed their fate by scoring after 68 minutes – his eighth goal of the season.

It capped QPR’s fourth win in six matches and the west London side are not entirely out of the running for a play-off place.

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski saved a late penalty from Michael Smith to preserve a 1-0 victory for Millwall against strugglers Rotherham United.

A thunderbolt from Jed Wallace ultimately settled the contest at The Den, where the Millers had their captain Richard Wood sent off in the early stages of the second-half.

In League One, Charlton Athletic beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0 at the Keepmoat Stadium to leapfrog them in the table and keep their Play-Off push on track.

Ian Maatsen’s 12th-minute strike was enough to decide a tight game and hand a first win to the Addicks since Nigel Adkins took charge.

Sam Woods scoring the winner after just 11 minutes, cheekily back-heeling Tyrese Fornah’s right-wing cross home at the near post.

And in League One, Leyton Orient extended their winning run to four league games with a 2-0 victory at Mansfield Town.

Forward Danny Johnson took his tally for the season to 19, punishing the hosts for mistakes with a goal in each half.
