EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 13.12.21

3 min

Fulham extended their lead at the top of the Championship despite a 1-1 draw with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s 22nd goal of the season opened the scoring for the Cottagers in the 19th minute only to be cancelled out by Elijah Adebayo’s strike just after the hour mark.

However, with second-placed AFC Bournemouth losing at home to Blackburn Rovers, Fulham are now two points clear of the Cherries.

Meanwhile, Millwall’s Play-Off hopes were dealt a blow as they lost 2-1 away to Peterborough United.

The Lions had struck in the 16th minute through Tom Bradshaw with his third goal in as many matches but they rarely threatened after it.

And a Danny McNamara own goal and effort from substitute Jonson Clarke-Harris turned the game on its head to give Posh all three points.

Unfortunately, QPR’s game at Sheffield United, scheduled for Monday night, was postponed after the Hoops returned a number of positive coronavirus cases.

QPR did not specify the number of players and staff who were affected but said it had left them with “insufficient numbers to fulfil the fixture”.

In League One, Conor Washington scored in each half as Charlton Athletic claimed a 2-0 victory over mid-table rivals Cambridge United at The Valley.

The in-form striker converted from Alex Gilbey’s cross on the half-hour mark before making sure of maximum points a minute from the end – taking his goal haul to seven for the campaign.

Charlton have won six out of their nine League One matches since Jackson took caretaker charge – banking 20 points from a possible 27.

Elsewhere, AFC Wimbledon were denied victory in stoppage-time and were forced to settle for a point with a 2-2 draw at high-flying Wycombe Wanderers.

Jack Rudoni scored in the fourth minute for the Dons, before Adebayo Akinfenwa’s second-half lob levelled the scores.

Rudoni scored again two minutes into stoppage time only for Paul Osew’s foul to give the Chairboys a share of the spoils as Joe Jacobson converted from the spot.

In League Two, Sutton United also claimed a 2-2 draw away to ten-man Bradford City.

The Us went in front from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute courtesy of Rob Milsom after defender Niall Canavan was sent-off for bringing Omar Bugiel down in the box.

Bradford equalised through Theo Robinson before Alistair Smith regained Sutton’s advantage only for Lee Angol to rescue an unlikely point 10 minutes from time.

And finally, Leyton Orient fell to a first defeat in nine home matches, losing 2-1 to Crawley Town at Brisbane Road.

George Francomb put Crawley in front at half-time before Orient equalised through Glenn Morris’ own goal.

However, Kwesi Appiah’s strike secured the win with O’s captain Darren Pratley sent-off in added time for a second bookable offence.
