Ful­ham give QPR more Fri­day pain

Daily Express - - SPORT - Ian Baker

QPR’s Fri­day mis­ery con­tin­ued as Jack Robin­son’s own-goal helped pave the way to an­other de­feat.

Ful­ham right-back Ryan Fred­er­icks saw his 41st-minute shot de­flect in off Robin­son and then Ste­fan Jo­hansen’s late sec­ond con­demned QPR to an 11th straight league de­feat on a Fri­day.

The sec­ond came after Ful­ham’s Rui Fonte had missed a penalty, al­though Conor


Wash­ing­ton made it nervy with an in­jury-time goal – in 10 min­utes of added time.

QPR’s as­ton­ish­ing se­quence of re­sults on the day stretches back to De­cem­ber.

Ful­ham’s big­gest strength is their pace and they again showed that at­tribute with Liver­pool loa­nee Sheyi Ojo un­for­tu­nate not to give his side the lead as he fired wide from Fonte’s pass.

Rangers nearly took the lead at the other end as Luke Free­man’s de­flected shot went just wide of the post while Pawel Ws­zolek also missed.

Jo­hansen drove into the side net­ting while Fonte missed a great chance. Ful­ham had big claims for a send­ing off when Robin­son looked to push over Ojo when last man. No foul was given but it was Robin­son who de­flected in Fred­er­icks’ 25-yard ef­fort.

QPR started the sec­ond half well with Mas­simo Luongo’s drive pushed around the post by David But­ton.

Ful­ham were dealt a blow when Ojo was stretchered with a col­lar­bone.

But they ig­nored that with Jo­hansen scor­ing inn the 85th minute from Fonte’s pass mo­ments after the Ful­ham striker had blazed over after Joel Lych had fouled Neeskens Ke­bano in the box.

There was still time for Wash­ing­ton to set up a grand­stand fin­ish as he scram­bled home in in­jury-time for QPR. off in­jured dis­lo­cated
