QPR PREVIEW

20 August 2021

Everything you need to know about our trip to London this weekend, as we take on the R's at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The games keep on coming, and thankfully so for the Reds, as we head to Queens Park Rangers for a 12.30pm kick-off tomorrow hoping to put the Luton Town defeat to bed. 

Our first league loss of the season was handed to us by the Hatters for a second year running on Tuesday night, as after going behind to a 4th minute Amari'i Bell strike, Barnsley were unable to break down the stubborn Luton rearguard.

Despite presentable opportunities for all of Romal Palmer, Callum Brittain and Callum Styles, the Reds - dominant throughout - couldn't tie the game. It wasn't through a lack of effort, but it was a frustrating evening at Oakwell. 

So with three games played of the new campaign, we've managed a draw, a victory and that defeat. The definition of average. An okay start. But this Saturday we head to Shepherd's Bush to take on a QPR outfit who've managed an extra three points and have pundits - already - tipping them for a promotion challenge.

Led by Mark Warburton, who has held the managerial position at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium for over two years now, our hosts tomorrow are unbeaten in league and cup at this embryonic stage of the new season. 

They had to battle for a point on the opening day, coming from behind against London rivals Millwall on home soil. Next up, they edged out another capital city based club in Leyton Orient on penalties in the first round of the Carabao Cup. Before back-to-back away league victories which has seemingly garnered them lots of positive press this week. 

The R's saw off newly-promoted Hull City 3-0 in Kingston who saw former Reds midfielder George Moncur sent off in the second half. And most recently, Rangers - who this time saw one of their own players (Moses Odubajo) dismissed - came from behind to beat Middlesbrough 3-2 at the Riverside.

If we're looking for a key player at QPR right now, there's only one candidate, surely? Central defender Rob Dickie has scored three goals in four games so far this season! The former Oxford United man is a massive threat at set-plays. He was sent off at Oakwell last season after tangling with Cauley Woodrow as the Reds won out 3-0 in what was Valérien Ismaël's first match in charge. 

The Reds completed a very rare double last term against the R's when at this very venue, goals from Daryl Dike, Alex Mowatt and Carlton Morris saw us run out 3-1 winners on our way to a play-off finish.

We will be unable to call upon any of those goalscorers this time around, sadly. The news that Morris will be out until at least October is a body blow to Reds Head Coach, Markus Schopp who is already without a number of players through injury or otherwise. 

The referee on Saturday at QPR will be Mr Gavin Ward. The Surrey-based official has been in the game since 2008 and last took control of a Reds game in April of this year when we saw off Rotherham United 1-0 at Oakwell.

Match Reports

REDS PEGGED BACK AT QPR

21 August 2021

Barnsley had to settle for a point on the road this afternoon, with Rangers grabbing an injury time equaliser.

First half strikes from Dominik Frieser and Cauley Woodrow had given the Reds the advantage, but the home side roared back after the break to take a share of the lunchtime spoils.

Head Coach, Markus Schopp had named an unchanged side for the trip to Shepherd's Bush and he was rewarded for that loyalty with an outstanding first half performance. 

The Reds dominated from the outset, with momentum gathering after Josh Benson and Woodrow linked nicely through the middle before releasing Clarke Oduor to the left of the box who saw his low effort on the left boot pushed around the post by R's 'keeper Seny Dieng. 

Just a few minutes later and the opening goal arrived but in much more direct fashion. Out on the left flank, just ahead of halfway, Liam Kitching spotted the run from Frieser and played a perfect pass over the top which the Austrian took down brilliantly with his first touch, beating the offside trap and his second touch was an exquisite volley that gave the QPR goalkeeper no chance from 12 yards out. 

It could have been 2-0 just three minutes later when Callum Brittain put over a wonderful near post cross from the right touchline and Kitching powered a header just a foot or so wide, unmarked. 

Woodrow went close on 20 minutes as he was played in thanks to some excellent pass-and-move football involving Romal Palmer and Benson once again, but the captain's near post drive from 10 yards out was turned behind by Dieng.

Just as the hosts were beginning to get out of their half and make brief forays forward, Woodrow did get his goal, his 50th for the club. After a corner was only cleared back out to Callum Styles on the right, he was on the end of a cracking one-two with Benson, surged into the box and from the byline he slid it across goal for Woodrow to slam home and double his side's lead. 

Cauley was denied again by Dieng when he turned and tried his luck from the edge of the box after more outstanding football in midfield, although the referee bizarrely gave a goal kick despite the touch around the post by the Rangers goalie. 

HALF-TIME: QPR 0-2 Reds

After the interval, Rangers, having made their three changes by now began to find some joy and enjoyed more of the ball inside the Barnsley half, but it was the Reds who went close to adding a third when Dieng had to tip over Benson's inswinging corner kick. 

The Reds saw Styles and Benson booked for scything down players as Rangers countered from halfway, before Jimmy Dunne flashed a header just wide for the hosts on the hour-mark. 

Substitutions came for Schopp's side, but they didn't help stem the tide, with QPR now in the ascendancy and next it was Charlie Austin to try his luck with a good header at the near post but Brad Collins somehow repelled the effort. 

Barnsley had the chance to put the game to bed when Woodrow had only to pick out an unmarked Frieser inside the box but his pass across was far too weighty and the opportunity disappeared. As did the Reds' two-goal lead soon afterwards.

The always-lively Ilias Chair received the ball in what looked an offside position on the left, but no flag appeared and he beat both Brittain and Toby Sibbick and made his way into the box and from an acute angle, he smashed home the ball into the roof of the net. 

On the 78th minute, just after his goal, Chair was fortunate to stay on the pitch as he recklessly slid into Reds sub Jasper Moon. Referee, Gavin Ward only issued a yellow card to the R's goalscorer. 

With time running out, a long ball caught out the Rangers backline and Woodrow scampered through one-on-one with Dieng but after going by the 'keeper, he couldn't keep the shot down. 

And in the 91st minute of the match, QPR finally found the equaliser. Chair involved again, and he slipped Yohann Barbet in on the left who pulled back towards the six yard box for Austin to finish beyond Collins who got a hand to the ball but couldn't keep it out. 

Another point on the road, but it will feel like two points dropped after a comfortable first hour of the game against a team that have been lauded as promotion candidates after only three games.

FULL-TIME: QPR 2-2 Reds

Collins, Brittain, Sibbick, Helik, Kitching, Styles, Palmer (Moon), Benson (Halme), Frieser, Oduor (Cole), Woodrow.

Unused: Walton, B.Williams, Adeboyejo, Thompson.
