QPR won their second game in a row as they produced one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Albert Ademoah scored in the 14th minute before Chris Willock doubled their advantage in the 71st minute. Chuks Aneke halved the deficit four minutes later but the Rangers held on for a crucial victory which helped them up to fifth on the table.
Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “We didn’t have that bit of quality in the final third. That’s what we’ve lacked ever since we lost [Tahith] Chong. Hopefully, we can bring some more of that in. They scored from their first opportunity and did the same in the second half. They were just clinical and that’s why they are in the position that they are in the league and why we are where we are. We need more than one chance to score a goal.”
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “To come here, it’s a tough venue and opponent. I have a lot of respect for Lee and the job he does with his players, we knew we would face a tough challenge here today. I was pleased that we came out, got the early goal, and controlled the first half. In the second half, we knew they were going to come out and press, and to get the second goal of that quality was really pleasing. If Albert does that and five others don’t, you’re only as strong as your weakest link.”
