QPR beat Bournemouth with a thumping 2-1 victory on Saturday at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. Both teams arrived in good form, having secured victories in their previous matches. Queens Park Rangers were keen to hang onto their position at the top of league and extend their winning run after winning their previous two matches in the competition. The most recent was against the Brentford at home (2-1), the other to Blackburn Rovers at home (1-0). Bournemouth, on the other hand, were looking to extend their winning run after a 1-0 victory against Rotherham United. As the table looks today, Queens Park Rangers are in 13th place on the table and has 39 points while Bournemouth sit in 6th with 49 points after 31 matches.

After an uneventful first half, Queens Park Rangers continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with Stefan Johansen opening the scoring, 58 minutes in. However, their lead was short lived, as an equalizer from a goal from Shane Long, 69 minutes in brought Bournemouth level. However, Queens Park Rangers in the 83rd minute found the back of the net with a Todd Kane goal, sealing a resounding 2-1 victory for the home side.

For QPR, Chris Willock, Sam Field and Niko Hamalainen came on for Jack Wilshere and Lewis Cook, and Bournemouth brought on Sam Surridge and Arnaut Danjuma for Jack Wilshere and Lewis Cook.

There were bookings for Yoann Barbet, Ilias Chair and Todd Kane from QPR and Chris Mepham for Bournemouth.

Queens Park Rangers will next travel to Preston North End, while Bournemouth will face Cardiff City at home.
