1 min

QPR moved into the top half of the Championship table with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The Hoops showed more attacking intent in the opening exchanges with Stefan Johansen forcing Wycombe keeper David Stockdale to tip his 19th minute effort around the post.

However, QPR did manage to take the lead just four minutes later as Chris Willock’s wonderful footwork down the right hand side saw his cross find Ilias Chair to fire home.

After remaining uneventful for the rest of the half, QPR almost doubled their advantage three minutes after the interval when Chair’s strike from inside the box rattled the post.

Wycombe slowly began to up their tempo and were denied a 62nd minute penalty while at the other end QPR were denied a second time by the woodwork from a Willock strike.

And despite late Wycombe pressure, QPR held on to collect all three points and move up to 12th in the table.

Key Moment

Wycombe Wanderers penalty claims could easily have been awarded to swing the game in their favour.

Moan of the Match

QPR were unlucky not to score more goals as the woodwork denied them twice.

Talking Point

After being QPR’s biggest threat throughout and with only a slender lead, was the 65th minute substitution of Ilias Chair a risky move by Mark Warburton?

Man of the Match

Chris Willock – the 23-year-old provided a sensational match winning assist and linked up well with both Ilias Chair and Charlie Austin.

Referee Watch

Simon Hooper (Wiltshire) – waved away legitimate penalty claims from Wycombe and incredibly managed to keep calm following their angry reaction.


The QPR faithful would’ve gone through the emotions seeing their side hit the woodwork twice and Wycombe’s penalty claims waved away.


It wasn’t the prettiest of performances but QPR, through a moment of brilliance, found a way to win to continue their upward trajectory.
