Brentford’s faltering promotion push suffered another setback with a disappointing 0-0 draw at home to strugglers Birmingham City.

The Bees squandered a string of clear-cut chances, with a lack of clinical finishing, quality with the final ball and some brilliant stops from Blues goalkeeper Neil Etheridge costing them dear.

In the Easter Monday matches, Mason Bennett’s sixth goal of the season secured Millwall’s 2-1 win against Stoke City to keep the Lions’ faint Play-Off hopes alive.

Bennett was the beneficiary of Danny Batth’s slip as he tapped in Jed Wallace’s pass after 71 minutes.

Earlier Jacob Brown had cancelled out Murray Wallace’s opener at the bet365 Stadium.

Meanwhile, QPR’s recent fine form took a battering with a heavy 3-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Alex Mighten, Lewis Grabban and James Garner wrapped up the points for Forest, prior to Lyndon Dykes’ stoppage-time consolation.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon remain in the bottom four after conceding in the 88th minute to lose 1-0 at home to Fleetwood Town.

Joe Pigott and Ryan Longman went close for the hosts but in a game of few clear-cut chances, Dons goalkeeper Nik Tzanev passed the ball straight into Barrie McKay for the visitors to steal three points at Plough Lane.

And in League Two, Play-Off chasing Leyton Orient were held to a goalless draw by strugglers Walsall at Brisbane Road, ending the O’s run of four successive victories.
