KICK-OFF

2′: Nahki Wells finds himself one on one from a tight angle, Whites able to clear the danger.

3′: Noone draws a foul about 25 yards out following a great pass from Ameobi.

4′: The cross into the box is met by the head of Ameobi however his effort wide of the target.

13′: Doidge manages to get in behind following a ball over the top but he’s adjudged to be offside. All Whites so far.

15′: QPR free-kick from 25 yards out, Freeman curls a cross into the far post however it was too high and out for a goal-kick.

18′: Mix up at the back as the QPR defender heads out for a corner when the keeper was coming to collect. The resulting corner leading to nothing.

19′: Ameobi has the ball in the back of the net however the referee rightly blew for handball moments before.

21′: Two O’Neil corners ask questions of the QPR defence, Lumley punching the second clear.

24′: Yet another free-kick from 25 yards, O’Neil the man over it.

26′: GOAL! Luke Freeman finishes off a great counter-attacking move to give the away side an arguably undeserved lead.

28′: Ameobi is receiving treatment after going down under no challenge, doesn’t look great.

30′: Ameobi returns to the action however not moving entirely freely.

35′: It’s the end of the afternoon for Ameobi as his injury forces him to be replaced by Yanic Wildschut.

36′: O’Neil whips a free-kick into the box but it’s too close to the keeper and he’s able to collect calmly.

44′: Wildschut finds Noone in loads of space in the box but he’s unable to hit the target, should’ve done much better with that.

HALF TIME

55′: Outswinging corner from O’Neil finds Wheater in the middle of the box but his header sails over the bar. The captain visibly frustrated with that attempt.

56′: GOAL! Eze is found in miles of space in the centre of the penalty area and converts with a low, hard drive to the bottom left.
