Queens Park Rangers ease to a comfortable 4-1 win at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. QPR were hoping to get something from this game, following a previous defeat to Nottingham Forest. Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, were able to continue their winning streak after a 5-0 win against Cardiff City in their last match. As it stands, QPR are in 11th place on the table and has 56 points while Sheffield Wednesday sit in 23rd with 35 points after 41 matches.

QPR started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, with Lyndon Dykes opening the rout at the 27 minute mark. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Josh Windass equalised for Sheffield Wednesday, 30 minutes in, which brought Darren Moore’s squad level at 1-1 at the half time break

QPR fought back, with an early goal from Stefan Johansen in the 50th minute. The momentum was now with QPR, who then scored again through a second effort from Lyndon Dykes, 61 minutes in to establish a 3-1. However they weren’t finished yet and Chris Willock made it 4-1 just before the final whistle with a final score of 4-1.

For QPR, Albert Adomah, George Thomas, Dominic Ball and Faysal Bettache, came on for Callum Paterson, Jordan Rhodes, Osaze Urhoghide and Sam Hutchinson. Sheffield Wednesday brought on Elias Kachunga, Andre Green, Kadeem Harris and Joey Pelupessy, to replace Callum Paterson, Jordan Rhodes, Osaze Urhoghide and Sam Hutchinson.

The referee booked Sam Field and Osman Kakay for QPR.

QPR will next play Middlesbrough away, with Sheffield Wednesday facing Bristol City at home.
