The start of a new year presented mixed fortunes for West Ham, Charlton and Millwall as they began their 2014 campaign on January 1.

The Addicks maintained their unbeaten run over the Christmas period with a 1-1 draw away at Ipswich, with Johnnie Jackson securing his team a share of the points in the 90th minute.

It was a more dismal start for managerless Millwall, who lost 1-3 against Championship leaders Leicester.

The match wasn't without controversy with a fan, who appeared to be dressed in a similar tracksuit to the Millwall coaching staff, grabbing the flag from the assistant referee.

West Ham gaffer Sam Allardyce's defensive headaches continued with a 2-1 defeat at London rivals, Fulham.

The Irons took the lead with a Diame strike in the seventh minute but his efforts were cancelled out by goals from Sidwell and Berbatov either side of half-time.
