Luke Amos scored a winner late on to help QPR strengthen their hold on a playoff position in one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Amos is returning from a second long-term knee injury got on the end of a cross from Chris Willock with nine minutes remaining. He stroked the ball past Huddersfield goalkeeper Lee Nicholls for the only goal of the game. QPR is the only team in the league to score across all their games this season.
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “I’m delighted for Luke after what he’s been through. The second surgery was bigger than the first one and he’s had to sit there hour after hour in the gym, in the pool, with the physios who’ve worked so hard with him. To get that goal – they’re the lovely moments in football. I came out of the changing room and there were shouts of ‘speech’ from the players to Luke. He deserves that moment because he has worked tirelessly. You won’t find a better young professional.”
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “The game was very demanding. It was a tough and competitive game. The first half was more balanced. Both teams had chances but in the last minutes of the first half, they started to dominate the ball. The feeling at half-time was that we needed to have more of the ball. When we didn’t, they created more chances. From time to time we had chances to counter-attack, but they were better in the second half.”
