EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 18.08.21

2 min

QPR continued their unbeaten start to the Championship season with a 3-2 win at Middlesbrough – despite falling behind and being reduced to 10 men.

Uche Ikpeazu put Boro ahead from the penalty spot after seven minutes but the Hoops levelled straight after the break when Jonny Howson diverted Lee Wallace’s cross into his own net.

Moses Odubajo was then sent-off for a second bookable offence five minutes after the restart before Lyndon Dykes put the visitors ahead from a tight angle.

Matt Crooks equalised after 72 minutes, but Chris Willock fired the winner for 10-man QPR four minutes later.

In Tuesday night’s Championship game, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Fabio Carvalho were on target as Fulham continued their fine start to the season with a 2-1 win at Millwall.

The pair both struck in the opening eight minutes as the Cottagers controlled the majority of the game – although Benik Afobe’s header four minutes from time did set-up an exciting finish.

In League One, there was late drama at Plough Lane as AFC Wimbledon were pegged back by 10-man Gillingham deep into stoppage time.

David Tutonda was given his marching orders with just over 20 minutes to go when he fouled Henry Lawrence on the edge of the box. 

The home side then thought they had their winner when Ollie Palmer’s 85th-minute header put them in front, only for a Paul Kalambayi own goal at the death to make sure both sides shared the spoils.

And finally, Charlton Athletic are still searching for their first win of the season after losing 2-1 awat to MK Dons.

Jayden Stockley nodded the Addicks in front before Troy Parrott slotted in the equaliser and Mo Eisa bagged the winner just after the hour mark.
