Championship round-up: QPR keeper scores last gasp at Sunderland | Championship

The QPR goalkeeper Seny Dieng scored a stoppage-time equalizer to force a 2-2 draw Sunderland in the championship.

Dieng headed home deep in the interval to complete a remarkable comeback by Michael Beale’s team. Sunderland led 2-0 and cruised to victory after goals from Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms in the first half. But Elias Chair got Rangers back in the 87th minute and five minutes later Chair’s cross was amazingly converted by Dieng, who then made an incredible stop at the other end.

Rotherham enjoyed a wonderful afternoon hammering away Reading 4-0 at New York Stadium. The Millers blew Paul Ince’s side away in the first half, racing into a 3-0 lead after just 18 minutes and adding a fourth before the break. Reading goalkeeper Joe Lumley had an afternoon to forget. After Richard Wood headed the hosts in front, Lumley let Conor Washington score from an acute angle, before letting a weak Jamie Lindsay shoot through his hands. Chiedozie Ogbene added to the misery for Lumley, beating the keeper to the ball and finishing into an empty net.

“Everything going forward didn’t please me as much as our defence,” said Rotherham manager Paul Warne. “Overall we defended really well. I thought we deserved to win, but maybe not by four goals – but I’m not complaining.

Millwall came from two goals down to beat Coventry 3-2. The Sky Blues were in dreamland after just 28 minutes when Kyle McFadzean and Matty Godden put them 2-0 up. Jake Cooper’s goal before the break proved decisive as it gave the Lions something to cling to and they quickly equalized after the restart through George Honeyman. Gustavo Hamer was sent off for Coventry and then George Saville’s 85th minute goal won it for the hosts.

Meanwhile, Coventry have had a second Championship game postponed due to the condition of the pitch, with Tuesday’s home game against Wigan called off by the EFL due to ongoing problems with the playing surface at the Coventry Building Society Arena. Last weekend their opener against Rotherham was postponed and the Carabao Cup tie with Bristol City was moved to Burton’s Pirelli Stadium.

Burton were denied their first win of the season after a remarkable comeback from Accrington saw them draw 4-4 in an eight-goal thriller at the Crown Ground in League One.

A hat-trick from Davis Keillor-Dunn was not enough for the Brewers as Rosaire Longelo struck deep into stoppage time to rescue a point for Stanley. Keillor-Dunn scored two goals in the first half and one early in the second to give Burton a 3-0 lead, but Accrington continued to threaten with Joe Pritchard pulling one back minutes before Sean McConville added their second. 

The Brewers thought they had managed to see out the game when Gassan Ahadme made it 4-2, but Josh Woods and Longelo scored late to steal a point. 

Ipswich made it back-to-back wins to go top of the league with a 3-0 win against bottom side MK Dons. They took an early lead through Wes Burns in the fifth minute and goals from Marcus Harness and Conor Chaplin saw the Tractor Boys go top on goal difference. 

Sheffield Wednesday are behind them in second, also on seven points, after Tyreeq Bakinson found a late goal to beat Charlton 1-0. 

John Marquis scored the only goal as Bristol Rovers made it back-to-back wins with a 1-0 victory against Oxford to move up to third in the table. 

Peterborough dropped down into fourth after they were handed their first league defeat by Plymouth, who won 2-0. Finn Azaz put Plymouth ahead in the first half before Ryan Hardie scored from the penalty spot for the Pilgrims to move fifth. 

Cambridge left it late to come from behind to beat newly-promoted Exeter 2-1. Jevani Brown put Exeter ahead just before half-time but Sam Smith levelled 15 minutes into the second half and Paul Digby found the winner for the U’s two minutes from time, heading home from close range. 

Derby held on to beat Barnsley 2-1 and earn their second win of the season. The Rams took the lead through a Conor McCarthy own goal eight minutes in before Nathaniel Mendez-Laing doubled their lead with his first goal for the club. 

Barnsley pulled one back after the break through Josh Benson but Derby managed to clinch maximum points. 

Colby Bishop netted in each half to help Portsmouth earn their first win of the season as they beat Cheltenham 2-0. 

Shrewsbury also picked up their first win after a late penalty from Luke Leahy saw the Shrews win 2-1 against Wycombe

The Chairboys took the lead through Garath McCleary six minutes after half-time but their lead was short-lived when Matthew Pennington equalised for the Shrews before Leahy added their second from the spot. 

Fleetwood came from behind to snatch a point in a Lancashire derby clash against Morecambe, which finished 1-1. Arthur Gnahoua put the Shrimps ahead but Danny Andrew levelled just seven minutes from time, and the game ended with Paddy Lane being dismissed with a straight red card for a tackle on Shane McLoughlin. 

Lincoln and Forest Green also drew after Connor Wickham scored on his Rovers debut to cancel out Baily Cargill’s own goal. Port Vale were unable to capitalise as they drew 0-0 with 10-man Bolton after Ricardo Almeida Santos was sent off 37 minutes in for his second bookable offence.

Norwich withstand a difficult start after relegation last season when they lost 2-1 at Hull, which climbed to third. Óscar Estupiñán scored twice, once in each half, to extend the Tigers’ unbeaten start to the campaign, despite Marcelino Núñez’s consolation for the Canaries, who sit bottom after three games.

Dean Smith urged Norwich fans to keep calm after the defeat. “We’re giving ourselves tough things to come back from with silly mistakes, but I don’t think there’s any reason to panic after three games,” he said. “We should have won the game in the first 20 minutes – the chances we created and the players they fell to.”
