Huddersfield’s automatic promotion hopes took a beating as QPR produced one of the comeback football results of the weekend in the Championship. The visitors went behind to a Yoanne Barbet own goal in the sixth minute before Luke Amos equalized in the 43rd minute. Harry Toffolo put the hosts ahead once again in the 53rd minute before Ilias Chair equalized five minutes later. Huddersfield keeps the third place on the table having played two matches more than Bournemouth.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “In the end, I think the result was the fair result in terms of what each team did on the pitch. We started very well but with the passing of the minutes, QPR was taking the ball and making it hard for us to recover it. We didn’t extend the attack as much as them so they had more of the ball than us and little by little took control of the game. The line of four meant we didn’t cover the width well enough so we changed to 5-3-2 and I think we were better. We had more opportunities to make attacks but weren’t able to make changes except for the excellent goal we scored, which we weren’t able to replicate.”
QPR boss Mark Warburton: “I thought we deserved to win the game today. The awful goal, awful start. We knew the set-piece, we knew about the near post, but they didn’t panic and we spoke about being brave and wanting to play and I think we saw the team do that. We looked like a good team. We moved the ball very well against a very, very strong opponent here at home, and have a very loud crowd. I was far happier that we played with intensity but more belief today.”
