Queens Park Rangers’ 3-1 win over Hull City on Tuesday, was hard fought at Loftus Road Stadium. Both QPR and Hull City arrived on the back of wins. QPR were looking to continue their run after winning last match. Hull City, on the other hand, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 3-2 victory against Coventry City. At the moment, both teams are on 11 points and occupy 4th and 5th places respectively after 7 matches.

Rangers started the match well, when Ilias Chair gave QPR the lead at the 9 minute mark. The momentum was now with QPR, who then scored again through a goal from Ethan Laird, at 15 minutes to establish a 2-0. However they weren’t finished yet and Chris Willock made it 3-0 in the 39th minute, finishing the first half 3-0.

Hull City took the lead in the second half, with a goal from Tyler Smith at the 84 minute mark, leaving the final score at 3-1.

Substitutions for QPR included Tyler Roberts, Osman Kakay, Albert Adomah and Sinclair Armstrong for Chris Willock, Lyndon Dykes, Stefan Johansen and Ilias Chair, repectively. Hull City brought on Ryan Woods, Randell Williams and Tyler Smith, to replace Ryan Longman, Cyrus Christie and Andy Cannon.

There were bookings for Tyler Roberts from QPR, and Jacob Greaves, for Hull City.

QPR will next play Swansea City away, with Hull City facing Sheffield United at home.
