EFL London Clubs Match Report Round-Up: 02.05.22

3 min

Fulham sealed the Championship title in devastating fashion with a 7-0 mauling of Luton Town at Craven Cottage on Monday evening.

Captain Tom Cairney opened the scoring on 29 minutes and Kenny Tete made it two 10 minutes later to ensure the hosts, who sealed promotion to the Premier League on April 19, were comfortable at the break.

And the floodgates opened in the second-half with goals from Fabio Carvalho, Bobby Decordova-Reid, substitute Jean Michael Seri and a brace from Aleksandar Mitrovic – the Serbia striker taking his tally to a second-tier record of 43 in the process.

Meanwhile, Millwall kept alive their narrow hopes of a Play-Off spot ahead of the final weekend of the season with a 3-0 thrashing of already-relegated Peterborough on Saturday.

Benik Afobe lashed home his 13th of the campaign from a corner to deservedly break the deadlock for the dominant hosts in the 53rd minute.

Josh Knight put into his own goal in trying to clear a cross from substitute Jed Wallace for Millwall’s second and moments later Wallace delivered a brilliant ball for George Saville to head home a third.

And in Friday night’s game, QPR signed off their home campaign with a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Sheffield United.

Charlie Austin put the Hoops ahead after 31 minutes in what is expected to be his farewell match at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

However, Mark Warburton’s side found themselves under sustained pressure after the interval and Iliman Ndiaye equalised nine minutes into the second half.

Jack Robinson then put the Blades in front after 73 minutes and in stoppage time, Conor Hourihane scored straight after coming on as a substitute.

The defeat condemns Warburton to another defeat in his final home match as QPR manager, who are replacing him when his contract expires at the end of the season.

In League One, AFC Wimbledon’s relegation to League Two was confirmed after a dramatic 4-3 defeat at home to Accrington Stanley.

Goals from Jay Rich-Baghuelou, Colby Bishop, Michael Nottingham and John O’Sullivan proved too much for Mark Bowen’s Dons at Plough Lane.

That was despite a spirited effort in a chaotic second-half that saw Ayoub Assal and a double from Jack Rudoni offer the hosts a glimmer of hope.

Elsewhere, Charlton Athletic signed off a miserable campaign by being thrashed 4-0 away to Ipswich Town.

Wes Burns bagged a brace with Tyreeq Bakinson and James Norwood also finding the net to bring the curtain down on a season which saw the Addicks finish 13th in the table.

In League Two, Sutton United’s 19-game unbeaten home run came to an abrupt end with a 4-1 defeat against Bradford City.

Charles Vernam scored twice for the Bantams before Alistair Smith equalised for the Us early in the second period.

However, Yann Songo’o and Andy Cook wrapped up the win late on to leave Sutton just outside the Play-Offs with one game remaining.

And finally, goals from Theo Archibald and Aaron Drinan gave Leyton Orient their third win in the last four away games with a 2-0 victory at Crawley Town.
