QPR continued their brilliant start to the season with one of the high-scoring football scores of the weekend. They came from behind to hold Reading to a 3-3 draw in the Championship. Rangers opened the scoring in the early minutes when Dominic Ball flicked the ball off Michael Morrisson for his own goal. Reading equalized through John Swift in the 35th minute with a clever finish. The striker then completed his hat-trick in the second half with goals in the 64th and 77th minute to put the visitors two goals up.
Andre Gray halved the deficit in the 79th minute before Stefan Johansen scored the equalizer in stoppage time. Prior to the game, QPR won three of the five games played while reaching the third round of the Carabao cup where Everton awaits.
Reading’s Veljko Paunovic: “The way that it happened today, obviously the result feels like a defeat. On the other side, there was a big improvement in our team in attack. Also, to be completely frank and honest, I believe that we played against a team that is in much better form than us. And they had much more confidence than us. But we still managed to be 3-1 up.”
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “We’ve got to say that is two points dropped. But if that’s a bad day at the office for us – and we’re dissatisfied with that – then that says a lot about our players and how hard they have worked. There’s no doubt that we controlled long periods of the game, but it’s about putting the ball in the back of the net and we didn’t do that.”
