EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 18.09.21

2 min

Millwall played out an entertaining 1-1 stalemate against Coventry City at The Den to record their third successive Championship draw.

The Sky Blues took the lead after nine minutes when Viktor Gyokeres forced his way into the box before firing into the bottom corner.

However, the Lions levelled after 21 minutes through George Saville, whose side-foot finish took a wicked deflection before it ended up in the net.

Meanwhile, QPR recorded their second defeat in a week as they lost 2-1 to Bristol City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Former striker Nahki Wells grabbed the winner totally against the run of play – as was Chris Martin’s opener a minute before the interval.

In between, Sam McCallum’s second-half equaliser appeared to have earned a point for the Hoops, who were pushing for a second goal when they were hit with a classic sucker punch.

There was also a surprise 2-1 home defeat for Fulham as Ovie Ejaria struck twice for Reading to stun the Championship pacesetters at Craven Cottage.

Ejaria opened the scoring after 19 minutes and then doubled eight minutes after the break as Fulham saw both Aleksandar Mitrovic and Bobby Decordova-Reid hit the woodwork.

Substitute Rodrigo Muniz did find the net for the Cottagers four minutes from time but the result means Marco Silva’s side have now lost twice in the three games.

In League One, Charlton Athletic’s poor start to the season continued with a 2-1 away defeat at Wycombe Wanderers.

Garath McCleary scored both goals for the hosts with the Addicks responding late on through Sam Lavelle.

The result leaves Nigel Adkins’ side second bottom having won just once out of their first seven league games.

Elsewhere, AFC Wimbledon fell to a frustrating 1-0 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle with Ryan Hardie’s 47th-minute effort proving the difference.

In League Two, Leyton Orient moved up to second in the table with a comfortable 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Ground.

All the O’s goals came in the first-half as Theo Archibald struck between headed goals from Harry Smith and Aaron Drinan with Brett Pitman scoring a consolation goal from the penalty spot in injury time.

And finally, a spirited Sutton United lost 2-0 at Exeter City as an own-goal from Ben Goodliffe and a second from Sam Nombe sealed the win for the home side.

It was harsh on Sutton, who had created the better chances up until the opening goal, only for their wastefulness to let them down.
