QPR came from behind to beat Preston in one of the high-scoring football results of Championship weekend. Lyndon Dykes scored first for QPR before goals from Emil Riis Jakobsen and Jos Earl put the visitors ahead. Rangers then scored twice in the space of four minutes. Jimmy Dunne scored the equalizer before Chair struck the winner in the 74th minute. The hosts have been in sublime form this season with the winner taking them to 18 points going into the international break.
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “The negatives are two awful goals given away. It was an individual error for the first and then straight after half-time not tracking a runner – poor basic defending. You can’t give two goals away. That’s an honest fact. You can’t keep scoring three goals. We know we’re going to be on the front foot and create chances, but we have to be better defensively.”
Preston’s Frankie McAvoy: “I’m disappointed with the outcome. I felt we were comfortable at 2-1. I felt it wasn’t a free-kick that leads to their second goal, but we’ve got to defend it a bit better. The third goal, again we’ve got to defend better. We wanted to try to win the game. We felt that if chances arose our way we were good enough to take them. “It’s just disappointing because, where we’ve been defensively solid in terms of set-pieces going into our box, we conceded from one and should defend it better.”
