1 min

QPR cruised to a 4-1 victory over Championship strugglers Sheffield Wednesday at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. 

The Hoops started the game brightly with Chris Willock’s powerful half volley forcing a good save from Sheffield Wednesday keeper Joe Wildsmith on six minutes.

QPR did open the scoring on 27 minutes though, a deep cross from Yoann Barbet found its way to Lyndon Dykes, who headed home clinically from eight yards out.

However, just three minutes later Sheffield Wednesday equalised through Josh Windass after Adam Reach’s dinked pass fell into the path of the stiker to slot home.

QPR then restored their lead five minutes into the second-half when Stefan Johansen’s effort from just outside the box took a kind deflection to divert it past a diving Wildsmith.

And the Hoops doubled their advantage on 61 minutes thanks to another Dykes header, this time off a looping cross which he headed back across goal and into the bottom corner. 

Willock added a fourth in added time to finish the game in style and see QPR climb to 11th in the table on 56 points – just two off their points total last season with six still to play.

Key Moment

Lyndon Dykes’ second goal secured the win for QPR and allowed them some breathing room in a shaky defensive performance.

Moan of the Match

Neither side looked particularly solid defensively, with sloppy play and poor communication leading to some worrying situations for both teams.

Talking Point

A Play-Off place may be out of reach but can QPR continue their good form to build a confidence boosting platform going into next season?

Man of the Match

Lyndon Dykes – two splendid goals for the lively forward who excellently deputised for the suspended Charlie Austin.

Referee Watch

John Brooks (Leicestershire) – good performance from the man in the middle, making all the correct decisions and managing to keep the game flowing nicely.


QPR have now won four of their last five at home, something which surely has the potential to build on when fans are finally allowed back into stadiums.


A solid attacking performance from QPR, who eased to victory against an incredibly average Sheffield Wednesday.
