GOAL! QPR 1-0 Fulham (Hugill, 1)
A blistering start at Loftus Road. Not what Fulham had planned.
That is Brewster’s seventh strike since joining on loan in January – and what a priceless goal it could prove. Saying that, a draw does neither Millwall or Swansea too many favours in their pursuit of the play-offs. Elsewhere, Cardiff are being kept at bay by Lee Bowyer’s Charlton, who have won their past two matches. Robert Glatzel has been promoted to the starting lineup after scoring in his last two matches.
GOAL! Millwall 1-1 Swansea (Brewster, 66)
A beautiful free-kick! Stunning strike. The Liverpool loanee takes aim from 20 yards and curls a right-footed shot beyond Bartosz Bialkowski, who couldn’t keep it out. It was not in the very corner but the power took it past the Millwall goalkeeper.
GOAL! Reading 0-1 Brentford (Mbeumo, 23)
A corner is kept alive and Mbeumo heads in from close range! Brentford are back at full strength, with Mbeumo returning to the starting lineup to complete their exhilarating “BMW” attack, which also comprises Ollie Watkins and Saïd Benrahma:
Not an awful lot to report around the grounds, as Millwall continue to keep Swansea at arm’s length. Bersant Celina, who was left out last weekend, has replaced Yan Dhanda, once of Liverpool, approaching the hour mark. The Queen is in attendance at the Den:
A couple of big Football League stories:
Let’s get stuck straight in, with Swansea already trailing at Millwall in the (even eerier) 5pm kick-off courtesy of a Mason Bennett goal on the counter-attack. Swansea came close to an equaliser through Rhian Brewster, only for Jake Cooper to clear off the line, but they need to turn things around in the second half if they are to stay in the mix for the play-offs. As for Millwall, that three points would be most welcome after a fairly disappointing restart for Gary Rowett and co. And yes, there are another six matches – including league leaders Leeds v Luton – to come this evening. Reading warmed up for their match with Brentford with a poignant tribute to those who lost their lives in the Forbury Gardens terror attack 10 days ago. We will be keeping an eye on the following matches:
