EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 20.11.21

2 min

Fulham swept back to the top of the Championship after cruising to their seventh straight win with a 4-1 victory over Barnsley at Craven Cottage.

Aleksandar Mitrovic struck the opener and cued up the second for Fabio Carvalho before Neeskens Kebano increased Fulham’s advantage midway through the second-half.

Despite a consolation from Victor Adeboyejo, Harry Wilson sealed a convincing win late on as the Cottagers moved a point above Bournemouth, who play Derby on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Millwall came from behind to grab a point with a 1-1 draw away at Middlesbrough.

Matt Crooks gave Boro the lead in the 15th minute with a back-post header before a Sol Bamba own goal 12 minutes later brought the Lions back into the game.

In Friday night’s game, Charlie Austin ended his goal drought as QPR beat Luton 2-0 to keep themselves in Play-Off contention.

Chris Willock put them ahead and Austin scored his first league goal in 11 matches – a run stretching back to August – to double the lead.

The Hoops remain the only team in the division to have scored in every league game this season.

In League One, Charlton Athletic’s impressive run of form continued as they made it four wins from five with a 2-0 victory over leaders Plymouth Argyle.

The Addicks impressed throughout and deservedly opened the scoring on the hour mark when a Ben Purrington strike went under keeper Michael Cooper.

Conor Washington then scored six minutes from time to further enhance the prospects of caretaker manager Johnnie Jackson being awarded the role full-time.

Since his temporary appointment, Charlton has earned 10 points from a possible fifteen and remain unbeaten in that run.

Elsewhere, AFC Wimbledon are now winless in their last three after falling to a late 2-1 defeat away to Portsmouth.

The Dons took the lead in the first half when Ollie Palmer scored a penalty but Michael Jacobs was able to level the scores before Marcus Harness netted in the 89th minute.

And in League Two, Leyton Orient recovered from falling a goal behind to run out 4-1 winners over London rivals Sutton United at Brisbane Road.

Harry Smith notched a brace after Theo Archibald had cancelled out the opening goal of the match by Isaac Olaofe before Tom James put the icing on the Orient cake with the fourth goal in stoppage time.
