4-2-3-1 today for the Whites, a debut for new signing Christian Doidge, fancy him to get on the scoresheet today.
There’s only one Eddie Davies rings around the ground during his minute’s applause prior to 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.
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.
