QPR 0-3 Sheffield Wednesday, Championship: report, ratings and verdict


QPR 3-5-2



Sheffield Wednesday 3-5-2

Half Time: 0 - 2 Loftus Road ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

Queens Park Rangers suffered their fifth post-lockdown defeat as they were convincingly beaten 3-0 by Sheffield Wednesday at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. 

In an extremely poor showing from the hosts, Mark Warburton’s side never threatened the Owls goal despite having a large majority of possession.

Dominic Iorfa gave Wednesday an early lead after just six minutes, slamming in after QPR failed to clear a free-kick.

With the Hoops struggling to create a single opportunity, the visitors doubled their lead through Josh Windass on the stroke of half-time leaving the home side devoid of ideas.

The away side almost scored a third just after the hour mark but Joe Lumley’s outstretched right arm refused to leave Windass with an open net. 

But as the game approached the last ten minutes, QPR’s Osman Kakay found himself isolated against Jacob Murphy with the Wednesday player finishing wonderfully from 20 yards to rub salt in the wounds. 

Key Points

Check out all the key talking points and reaction from London Football Scene below…

Key Moment

After a goal-saving challenge from Kakay, the inability to defend a corner in first-half added time greatly reduced any hope of a comeback.

Moan of the Match

Almost 70% possession, not a single chance created and two goals down – it was a frustratingly lifeless first-half from Queens Park Rangers.

Talking Point

Mark Warburton has spoken about disrespecting the value of points with nothing to play for – so why was there such a lack of intensity from Hoops today?

Man of the Match

Osman Kakay – the only Hoops player that showed the right intentions and the required level of application for the entire match.

Referee Watch

Oliver Langford (West Midlands) – not a great deal of action was required but a clean performance nevertheless from the man in the middle.


The Hoops suffered without the honest encouragement of the home fans who would have undoubtedly demanded a better showing.


An abysmal performance that made Sheffield Wednesday appear far stronger than their ability; QPR will have to rectify this against Luton to avoid another embarrassment.
