QPR’s winless league run extended to four league games despite Ilias Chair’s second-half equaliser earning a 1-1 draw with Hull City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

After an even start, Chair fashioned a chance from nothing as he broke forward from the half-way line and unleashed a low effort which Hull keeper Matt Ingram saved.

However, it was Hull who opened the scoring in the 26th minute when Marcus Forss smashed the ball onto the underside of the crossbar from a corner with it creeping over the line.

QPR struggled to create many chances in the opening half but could have equalised after nice link-up play between Chair and Chris Willock led to a cross which Albert Adomah couldn’t latch on to.

The second-half saw a ten minute break early into it after Ingram was seriously injured following a collision with Adomah.

That pause seemed to spring the Hoops into action and they eventually equalised when Moses Odubajo put a pinpoint cross to Chair who tapped home in the 75th minute.

Adomah then thought he had scored the winner in the sixth minute of injury time, but was marginally offside as neither side could find a winner despite fifteen added minutes.

Key Moment

Ilias Chair’s equaliser injected hope of an unlikely win into the Hoops faithful as the side started to show glimpses of why they are fourth in the table.

Moan of the Match

QPR will be disappointed their side only started to turn the screw after the ten minute injury break to Hull’s keeper Matt Ingram in the second-half.

Talking Point

With Lee Wallace injured, Chris Willock deputised at left wing-back which limited his attacking impetus. How do QPR overcome this obvious left-sided shortfall with the Scot out?

Man of the Match

Ilias Chair – the only player making things happen for QPR in the opening period and popped up at the right time for the second-half equaliser.

Referee Watch

Tim Robinson (West Sussex) – somewhat inconsistent with his decision-making and was too easily duped by the petulant Marcus Forss’ antics.


The home crowd were audibly frustrated by QPR’s lack of creativity for the majority of the game, while Hull were well-travelled and supported throughout.


QPR’s urgency and positivity came far too late and they will have to start games much brighter if they want to achieve a Play-Off finish.
