2 min

Aleksandar Mitrovic struck a first-half hat-trick as Fulham eased their way to a 3-1 Championship win over Swansea City at Craven Cottage.

The striker produced three clinical finishes as Marco Silva’s side returned to winning ways after being without a victory in their last three matches.

Jamie Paterson replied for the Swans after Mitrovic had put the Cottagers two up, but they were unable to work their way back into the game.

Elsewhere, substitute Jed Wallace scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot as Millwall picked up just their second league victory of the season with a 1-0 win over Bristol City.

The Lions had drawn six of their previous nine games in the Championship and they did not create a great deal of opportunities at The Den in this encounter but did enough to claim the three points.

In Tuesday night’s Championship game, Ilias Chair scored both goals as QPR returned to winning ways courtesy of a 2-0 victory at home to Birmingham City.

Mark Warburton’s side rode their luck at times during an even first-half but got the result they needed after three consecutive Championship defeats.

Chair opened the scoring in the 34th minute with help from a deflection off Marc Roberts before doubling the lead in the 64 minutes by slotting past Matija Sarkic after being sent through on goal by Lyndon Dykes.

In League One, Charlton Athletic’s difficult start to the season continued as Bolton ran out 4-1 winners at The Valley.

A tame opening period was sparked into life in the 12th minute when the Addicks took the lead through Josh Davison, the striker volleying home after Jonathan Leko’s cross found him free six yards from goal.

Bolton hauled themselves back on level terms in the 43rd minute, Oladapo Afolayan cutting inside before curling a low effort into the bottom corner.

The visitors then grabbed the lead with 17 minutes left to play, Kieran Lee’s volley flying in with the help of a deflection.

Lee then notched his second from close-range in the 82nd minute before Antoni Sarcevic rounded Craig MacGillivray to add a fourth in stoppage time.

And finally, AFC Wimbledon are now four games without a win in all competitions after losing 3-0 away to Rotherham United.

Strikers Will Grigg and Michael Smith did the damage with the Dons now sitting 14th in the table, four points ahead of the drop zone.
