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

QPR are now eight league games without a win as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Swansea City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The Hoops were the better side in the opening 45 minutes with their best chance seeing Macauley Bonne’s header from a Yoann Barbet cross tipped over the bar by Swansea keeper Freddie Woodman.

Bonne had another headed chance that went wide with QPR made to pay for their wastefulness in front of goal when the Swans scored against the run of play just before half-time. 

Andre Ayew reacted quickest to give Swansea the lead after Jake Bidwell’s effort struck the post via a Barbet deflection.

Swansea found their rhythm after the interval and doubled their advantage in the 54th minute – Matt Grimes splitting the QPR defence with a searching pass with Jamal Lowe latching on to finish.

QPR struggled for a response with Bonne once again going closest to halving the deficit but heading wide from an excellent Rob Dickie cross.

Key Moment

Swansea’s second ended the game as a contest with QPR losing their shape, becoming frustrated and eventually running out of ideas.

Moan of the Match

Once again QPR failed to take their chances when on top and were subsequently punished.

Talking Point

With Macauley Bonne spurning a number of golden chances, just where are the QPR goals going to come from?

Jamal Lowe – troubled the QPR backline throughout and was eventually rewarded with a goal.

Referee Watch

Steve Martin (Staffordshire) – solid and fair with neither team able to have any complaints.


Subdued but briefly livened up by one of the Swansea hierarchy giving the referee a John McEnroe-esque earful on the way to the dressing room at half-time.


It’s the same old story – QPR failing to take chances when on top and eventually getting punished. Even more worryingly is the their continued slide down the table.
