Fulham moved back into second place in the Championship and an automatic promotion slot with a thumping 7-0 victory at relegation-threatened Reading.

The Cottagers were fortunate to be 2-0 ahead at half-time through a Harry Wilson strike and an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty.

But as Reading collapsed after the break, Fulham scored more goals through Wilson, Kenny Tete, Neeskens Kabano, Tosin Adarabioyo and Mitrovic.

In Wednesday night’s League One action, Charlton Athletic suffered a third consecutive defeat as they lost 2-1 at Crewe Alexandra.

First-half goals from Oliver Finney and Mikael Mandron sent the Railwaymen on their way before substitute Mason Burstow offered the Addicks hope with 10 minutes left.

Crewe then breathed a huge sigh of relief when referee Rob Lewis ruled out Elliot Lee’s deflected stoppage-time effort as they held on for all three points.

And finally, AFC Wimbledon are now just two points clear of the relegation zone after losing 1-0 at MK.

Matt O’Riley gave the hosts the lead on the half-hour mark before the Dons saw defender Nesta Guinness-Walker sent-off for a second caution ahead of the break.
