that one QPR goalkeeper Seny Dieng scored an equalizing goal in stoppage time and forced a 2-2 tie Sunderland in the Championship.
Dieng headed home deep in the interval to complete an impressive comeback by Michael Beale’s side. Sunderland went 2-0 up and cruised to victory after first half goals from Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms. But Elias Chair pulled Rangers back in the 87th minute and five minutes later Chair’s cross was superbly converted by Dieng, who then made an incredible stop at the other end.
“We had the right words at half-time, told them to be more dangerous, we played forward and Ilias scored a great goal,” said Beale. “I thought it was time but Seny had other plans. It was a great goal followed by a great save. As Seny went up, an assistant said: ‘Are you happy?’ I said I’m not going to bring him back. When the goalkeeper goes up, whoever picks him up, he attacks both balls. Crazy game.”
Rotherham they enjoyed a stellar afternoon as they hammered away Education 4-0 at New York Stadium. The Millers hit Paul Ince’s side in the first half, leading 3-0 after just 18 minutes and adding a fourth before the break. Reading goalkeeper Joe Lumley had an afternoon to forget. After Richard Wood had headed the hosts in front, Lumley allowed Conor Washington to score from a sharp angle, before allowing Jamie Lindsay to shoot over weakly with his hands. Chiedozie Ogbene collected on Lumley’s plight, beat the keeper to the ball and finished into an empty net.
Rotherham manager Paul Warne said: “All things going forward, I wasn’t as pleased as we were defending.” “In general we defended really well. I thought we deserved to win but maybe not by four goals – but I’m not complaining.”
Millwall fell from two lakes Coventry 3-2. The Sky Blues were in a dream after just 28 minutes when Kyle McFadzean and Matty Godden put them 2-0 up. Jake Cooper’s goal before half-time was crucial as it gave the Lions something to cling to and they leveled soon after the restart through George Honeyman. Gustavo Hamer was sent off for Coventry and then George Saville’s 85th minute goal sealed the win for the hosts.
Meanwhile, Coventry have had a second Championship game postponed due to the condition of their pitch, with Tuesday’s home match against Wigan canceled by the EFL due to ongoing problems with the playing surface at the Coventry Building Society Arena. Last week, their home opener against Rotherham was postponed, and the Carabao Cup tie with Bristol City was moved to Burton’s Pirelli Stadium.
Norwich They suffered a tough hand after relegation last season as they lost 2-1 Cross, which climbed to third. Óscar Estupiñán scored twice, one in either half, to extend the Tigers’ unbeaten start, although Marcelino Núñez scored twice for the Canaries, who sit bottom after three games.
Dean Smith has urged Norwich fans to remain calm after the defeat. “We’re giving ourselves a hard time coming back 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 who got them.”
Huddersfield scored their first points of the season with a kick Stoke 3-1. Lee Nicholls’ penalty from Lewis Baker was crucial in the first half as Yuta Nakayama put the Terriers ahead before the break. Baker made amends for his spot-kick when he leveled after the restart, but late goals from Danny Ward and Jordan Rhodes gave Danny Schofield his first win as Terriers manager.
Swansea as they scored their first win of the campaign Blackpool 1-0. After Andy Fisher saved a Jerry Yates penalty early in the second half, Olivier Ntcham scored in the final 10 minutes to get the Swans up and running for the campaign.
Cardiff manager Steve Morison said he was “delighted” with his team’s performance as they dominated. Birmingham They won 1-0, with Aston Villa loanee Jaden Philogene scoring the only goal in the 17th minute. “We should have had a few more,” he said, “but, overall, it was really fun… Anyone can beat anyone this year, I don’t think there’s going to be a Fulham, it’s going to be very tight. So that’s it.” It’s about collecting results and getting them together.”
Elsewhere, Brad Potts’ acrobatic finish was enough Preston to beat Luton 1-0 time Wigan and City of Bristol It was 1-1.
