Mitro­vic bags hat-trick to keep up Ful­ham scor­ing streak

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport | Football -

Alek­san­dar Mitro­vic moved to the top of the Sky Bet Cham­pi­onship scor­ing charts with a hat-trick in Ful­ham’s 3-2 win at home to Lu­ton.

The Ser­bia striker now has 11 goals in 13 games as Lu­ton’s good work at Craven Cot­tage counted for noth­ing.

Dan Potts and Kazenga Lualua twice pulled Lu­ton within a goal of their hosts, Mitro­vic hav­ing put

Ful­ham 2-0 ahead ei­ther side of the break. But the vis­i­tors ul­ti­mately left empty-handed as Ful­ham climbed into sev­enth place.

Ful­ham are level on points with Pre­ston, who are above them on goal dif­fer­ence.

Josh Brown­hill scored a dra­matic win­ner in the eighth minute of stop­page time as 10-man Bris­tol City beat Charl­ton 2-1 at Ash­ton Gate. City bounced back from only their sec­ond de­feat of the sea­son at Lu­ton on Satur­day to move into fourth place – three points off lead­ers West Brom.

Charl­ton had taken a 65thminute lead when Ma­cauley Bonne slid home from a tight an­gle.

Bris­tol City lev­elled when Fa­mara Died­hiou (76) headed home, but the sub­sti­tute was shown a straight red card four min­utes from time for kick­ing out at Ja­son Pearce while the Charl­ton de­fender was on the floor.

But Brown­hill settled mat­ters in a fran­tic fin­ish when drilling home Kasey Palmer’s lofted pass.

Derby beat un­lucky Wi­gan 1-0 as Graeme Shin­nie struck a stop­page-time win­ner. Derby were short of ideas un­til Shin­nie popped up to drive home an un­stop­pable shot from 15 yards, his first goal for eight months.

Mid­dles­brough’s win­less run was ex­tended to six matches as they drew 0-0 at Hud­der­s­field.
