EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 24.11.21

3 min

Luke Amos scored a late winner for QPR as they beat Huddersfield 1-0 to move up to fourth in the Championship table.

Amos, recently back from the second long-term knee injury of his career, headed in Chris Willock’s cross with nine minutes remaining at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

It preserved QPR’s record of being the only team in the division to score in every league match so far this season with Mark Warburton’s side now unbeaten in the last five – a run which includes three wins and three clean sheets.

Meanwhile, Millwall came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw with high-flying AFC Bournemouth at The Den.

It looked as though Dominic Solanke’s strike late in the first-half would be enough for the Cherries to leapfrog Fulham at the top of the table.

However, Benik Afobe’s smart finish midway through the second period against his former club earned the hosts a third straight draw which leaves them four points off a Play-Off place.

That result means Fulham remain top of the table despite playing out a 0-0 draw at home to bottom side Derby County.

The Cottagers were seeking an eighth successive win but failed to capitalise on a number of good chances in the absence of the Championship’s top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic through injury.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon rebounded from three straight league defeats with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Crewe Alexandra at Plough Lane.

Christopher Long put Crewe in front, though a strike from Jack Rudoni and Ollie Palmer’s brace saw the hosts take all three points despite Chris Porter’s late consolation.

Elsewhere, Johnnie Jackson’s unbeaten start in charge of Charlton Athletic continued but the Addicks blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Morecambe.

Goals from Diallang Jaiyesimi and Conor Washington put the visitors in control inside the opening half-hour but Cole Stockton’s penalty reduced the deficit and Anthony O’Connor headed a 72nd-minute leveller.

In League Two, Omar Bugiel’s first league goal since the opening day of the season got Sutton United back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Mansfield Town.

Louis John opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute before Bugiel made sure of the win with 21 minutes to go.

And finally, Leyton Orient were denied by a late equaliser as they had to settle for a point with a 1-1 draw at bottom-of-the-table Scunthorpe United.

Aaron Drinan’s first-half opener looked to have given Orient victory before Jake Scrimshaw’s strike ensured it was honours even.

Play-off hopefuls Orient will view the game as two points dropped, with the wasteful visitors unable to take any of a host of second-half chances.
