EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 09.05.21

2 min

Brentford signed off the regular Championship season with a comfortable 3-1 victory against Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The Bees, who had already guaranteed third place, opened the scoring through top scorer Ivan Toney in the 57th minute.

Substitute Bryan Mbeumo made it 2-0 when he capped a slick move by firing into the roof of the net after 78 minutes and Sergi Canos added a third when he shot home at the far post five minutes later.

Bristol City substitute Louis Britton netted with a low drive three minutes from time, but it was no more than a consolation for his outplayed team.

Brentford will now face AFC Bournemouth in the Play-Offs, with the first-leg taking place at Dean Court on Monday, May 17.

Meanwhile, QPR ended a promising campaign with a 3-1 win over Luton Town at the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium.

Stefan Johansen and Albert Adomah scored after Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s equaliser had cancelled out Charlie Austin’s opener.

It meant the west London side finished ninth in the table and will be hoping to challenge for promotion next term.

In comparison, it was a day to forget for Millwall who ended their campaign with a dismal 6-1 defeat at Coventry City.

Jordan Shipley, Kyle McFadzean, Dominic Hyam, Callum O’Hare, Matty James and Tyler Walker were the Coventry goalscorers while a McFadzean own goal provided the Lions’ scant consolation.

In League One, Charlton Athletic’s faint Play-Off hopes were dependent on results elsewhere, but they were still able to finish on a high with a 1-0 win over champions Hull City.

Jacob Greaves put through his own net in unfortunate circumstances with a quarter of an hour left when Matt Ingram could only push Liam Millar’s cross onto the defender. 

However, it was muted celebrations at the Valley with the victory only enough for a seventh-place finish with Oxford United comprehensively beating Burton Albion. 

Elsewhere, after securing survival last weekend, AFC Wimbledon concluded the season with a stalemate at Lincoln City, finishing four points clear of the drop zone in the end.

And in League Two, Leyton Orient finished the season with a 3-0 defeat away to Salford City.

Despite missing an early penalty, Salford took the lead through Robbie Gotts before the break with Brandon Thomas-Asante adding a second-half brace in what was later confirmed as Jobi McAnuff’s final game in charge of the O’s.
