EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 24.10.21

3 min

Fulham returned to the automatic Championship promotion places with a 4-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

The Cottagers were up and running in the seventh minute when Aleksandar Mitrovic forced Djed Spence to turn into his own goal.

The Serbian forward then scored twice himself in the second-half to make it 15 goals in 13 league appearances so far this season.

Mitrovic’s nine-minute brace also came either side of Neeskens Kebano’s first goal of the season.

In Saturday’s action, Tom Bradshaw’s second-half double saw Millwall come from behind to beat Stoke 2-1 at The Den.

Romaine Sawyers gave the visitors a deserved lead midway through the first-half with a curling finish from the edge of the area after a neat lay-off from Jacob Brown.

Millwall created few chances in the opening period but pulled level shortly after the restart when Bradshaw tapped in Sheyi Ojo’s teasing ball across the face of goal.

And the striker did it again 10 minutes later with another close-range finish to give the Lions their fourth win in five games.

Meanwhile, QPR fell to a stoppage-time winner as they were edged out 2-1 at Peterborough United.

The Hoops opened the scoring early in the second-half through Ilias Chair, his fifth goal in five matches before Harrison Burrows levelled the scores.

And Posh grabbed all three points as Siriki Dembele fired past Seny Dieng in the first minute of stoppage time.

In League One, Johnnie Jackson’s reign as Charlton Athletic’s caretaker manager got off to a perfect start as his side pulled off a shock 1-0 victory at Sunderland.

Two days after Nigel Adkins’ dismissal, Jayden Stockley’s second-half header enabled the Addicks to claim only their third League One win of the season.

Elsewhere, AFC Wimbledon fell to a 2-0 defeat to high-flying Wigan Athletic at Plough Lane.

Neither side got going in a slow first half but the visitors dominated the second and took the win courtesy of a Paul Kalambayi deflection and James McClean’s low strike.

In League Two, Sutton United were on the wrong end of a five-goal thriller, losing 3-2 in stoppage time to Rochdale at Spotland.

The hosts raced into a two-goal lead through Alex Newby and Liam Kelly, either side of Richie Bennett’s red card for Sutton.

However, the Us thought they had snatched a point when Isaac Olaofe and Alistair Smith levelled things up late on, only for Aaron Morley to strike in stoppage time.

And finally, Leyton Orient had to settle for a point with a  frustrating 0-0 draw away to Stevenage.

Both sides created enough chances to take more from an entertaining contest with the O’s now winless in their last six.
