QPR stay on a roll with Wells

Nahki Wells was substituted in the 72nd minute as Queens Park Rangers beat Millwall 2-0 in a Sky Bet Championship match last night.

Wells was lively in the opening minutes of the match, shooting over from a free kick just outside the box and then putting a left-footed shot wide from a difficult angle on the right side, both inside the first ten minutes.

QPR netted twice in the space of three minutes around the half-hour mark, with Massimo Luongo scoring from a header in the 30th minute. Eberechi Eze added the second from a left-footed shot from inside the box.

The win was the third for QPR since Wells joined the team on a season-long loan from Burnley, of the Premier League. They moved up to sixteenth in the Championship on ten points.

On Saturday, QPR are at home to Norwich City, who are a point ahead of them in the standings.

• Middlesbrough moved second in the Championship as they eased to a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers in other action.

George Saville capitalised on a defensive mix-up to put Tony Pulis's side in front and Britt Assombalonga sealed victory in stoppage time as Middlesbrough cut Leeds United's lead to one point.

Sheffield United moved into sixth spot after a goalless draw with Birmingham City.

Big-spending Nottingham Forest won for only the second time in the league this season, with summer signings Lewis Grabban and João Carvalho on target in a 2-1 defeat of Sheffield Wednesday that moved them into mid-table.

• Derby County manager Frank Lampard was fined £2,000 (about $2,600) by the Football Association after admitting to a misconduct charge.

The former Chelsea midfielder was sent to the stands during his team's 1-0 Championship defeat by Rotherham United on Saturday for leaving his technical area to argue with a match official.

“Derby County manager Frank Lampard has been fined £2,000 after he admitted an FA misconduct charge and accepted the standard penalty,” the FA said in a statement.

The 40-year-old Lampard, who was capped 106 times by England, took his first managerial role in May and has guided Derby to seventh place in the Championship after seven matches.

Mood changer: QPR have won three games in a row since Nahki Wells signed
