Fulham further cemented their credentials as favourites to return straight back to the Premier League with a comprehensive 2-0 win against Hull City.

First-half goals by Aleksandar Mitrovic and Fabio Carvalho at Craven Cottage made it three straight wins and 10 points from four Championship games.

Elsewhere, Millwall are still searching for their first league win of the season after losing 3-1 away to Cardiff City.

A brace from defender Aden Flint and another from fellow centre-back Sean Morrison did the damage with Benik Afobe claiming Millwall’s consolation.

In the early Championship kick-off, QPR fought back to draw 2-2 at home to Barnsley with Charlie Austin grabbing a stoppage-time equaliser.

Barnsley led 2-0 through first-half goals from Dominik Frieser and Cauley Woodrow before Ilias Chair halved the deficit 14 minutes from time.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon fell to their first defeat of the season, losing 1-0 to much-fancied Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Carl Winchester’s deflected 30-yard goal proved to be the difference between the two sides.

Meanwhile, Charlton Athletic’s slow start to the season continued as they fell to a 2-0 loss against Wigan at The Valley.

James McClean and Tendayi Darikwa wrapped up the victory late in the game to leave the Addicks winless in their opening four games having lost three on the spin.

In League Two, Harry Smith’s first Leyton Orient goal secured the O’s a 1-1 draw away at Carlisle United.

Tristan Abrahams fired the hosts ahead from the penalty spot in the ninth minute before Smith’s equaliser ensured Orient maintained their unbeaten league start.

And finally, the wait for a first ever Football League victory for Sutton United goes on after a 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe United.

Jake Scrimshaw opened the scoring for Scunthorpe before Donovan Wilson’s excellent 84th minute strike ensured it was honours even.
