QPR extended their unbeaten run this season to eight matches with a dramatic 3-3 draw at Reading.

The Hoops went ahead early on when Dominic Ball’s close-range flick appeared to be turned into his own net by defender Michael Morrison.

Reading then equalised in the 35th minute when midfielder John Swift cleverly guided in on the break.

Swift completed his hat-trick with cool finishes in the 64th and 77th minutes, before substitute Andre Gray made it 3-2 with 11 minutes left and Stefan Johansen levelled in the first minute of stoppage time.

Meanwhile, Fulham fell to their first defeat of the season with a 1-0 loss at Blackpool.

Josh Bowler struck the only goal of the contest at Bloomfield Road in the 49th minute as the Cottagers dropped down to second in the table.

In League One, a stunning injury-time goal from Ayoub Assal earned AFC Wimbledon maximum points in a thrilling 4-3 victory at Morecambe.

Anthony Hartigan’s strike gave the Dons the half-time lead before a goal-laden second period saw Cole Stockton and Shane McLoughlin put the Shrimps ahead. 

Ethan Chislett then equalised before Stockton’s second goal restored Morecambe’s advantage.

Will Nightingale levelled things up again and Assal netted in the fourth minute of injury time to give the Dons all three points and propel them to fourth in the table.
