EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 30.12.21

2 min

Yoann Barbet’s stoppage-time strike gave QPR a 2-1 Championship win over a Bristol City team reduced to 10 men at Ashton Gate.

The defender connected perfectly with a near-post header from a right-wing corner to send the traveling fans behind the goal into ecstasy.

Before that, Bristol City had taken the lead after just three minutes as Alex Scott fired home from inside the box with the aid of a Rob Dickie deflection.

However, QPR hit back in first-half injury time when Cameron Pring brought down Luke Amos with Charlie Austin making no mistake in firing the resultant spot-kick past Max O’Leary.

And after Andy King was dismissed early in the second-half for a second bookable offence, the Hoops eventually made their numerical advantage count with Barbet’s 93rd minute header.

In Wednesday night’s games, a depleted Millwall returned to action with a hard-fought 1-0 triumph at Coventry City with both clubs playing for the first time since December 11.

Although the Lions were only able to name seven substitutes with the majority from their academy, in-form striker Tom Bradshaw was the difference.

After scoring in Millwall’s last three games, Bradshaw made it four in a row when he applied the finishing touch to a free-kick into the area that was enough to give Gary Rowett’s men the points on the road.

And in League One, AFC Wimbledon returned to action for the first time in two-and-a-half weeks due to coronavirus cancellations but fell to a heavy 3-0 defeat at Oxford United.

Mark Sykes opened the scoring in the 27th minute, before Matty Taylor doubled Oxford’s lead before the break.

On the hour mark, Sam Long volleyed into the back of the net to secure all three points for the home side.
