Millwall loan watch: Lions duo in the goals – as keeper makes winning return

BEN Thompson scored his second goal of the season to seal a 3-1 win over Sunderland and keep Portsmouth four points clear of Luton at the top of League One going into Christmas.

Thompson’s 63rd-minute shot deflected in to stretch their lead over Sunderland in third place to eight points.

Fred Onyedinma was also on the mark on Saturday, scoring past Millwall team-mate Tom King, but it was only an injury-time consolation in Wycombe’s surprise 2-1 defeat at home to AFC Wimbledon.

It was King’s first league start since September as he helped the Dons to a first away league win in eight games.

AFC Wimbledon stay bottom, and Wycombe remain in ninth.

In League Two, Sid Nelson helped Swindon to a clean sheet at home to Cheltenham. The Robins are 13th, five points off the play-offs.
