Match preview: QPR v Wednesday

22 October 2018

Wednesday head to Loftus Road on Tuesday evening in the Sky Bet Championship and here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game;

The Owls will be aiming for a swift response after falling to defeat against Middlesbrough on Friday.

Jos Luhukay’s side have lost just two games from their last ten outings and head to the capital searching for their third successive win on the road, after the 2-1 victories over Aston Villa and Bristol City.

Following a forgettable start to the season consisting of four straight league defeats, QPR have found their feet in 2018/19.

The R’s are unbeaten in three, with wins away at Reading (0-1) and Ipswich (0-2) and a draw on home soil with Derby (1-1).

Wednesday go into the league clash two points and five places above the Hoops in 11th spot and 19 points, while QPR sit 16th with 17 on the board.

Team news:

Owls: There are no fresh injury concerns from Wednesday’s clash with Middlesbrough on Friday.

Sam Winnall, though, has suffered a setback during the Under-23s’ victory over Hull on Saturday, picking up a hamstring injury.

Loanee Josh Onomah was an unused substitute during the clash with Boro after a busy spell on the international stage with the England Under-21s, but comes back into contention for a place in the starting XI at Loftus Road.

QPR: Jake Bidwell (shoulder) and Jordan Cousins (ankle) are injury doubts for the midweek clash with Wednesday.

The Rangers duo missed the 2-0 victory away at Ipswich on Saturday, though both are expected to make a quick return with their respective injuries not deemed serious.


An extremely limited number of tickets remain available for this all-ticket fixture.

Supporters have until 12 noon on Tuesday to purchase from the Owls Ticket Office or SWFC Online store.

There will be no ticket sales on the matchday at Loftus Road.

Those collecting tickets on the night should head to South Africa Road between the Main Box Office and Superstore 90 minutes prior to kick off.

Match Reports

Report: QPR 3-0 Wednesday

23 October 2018

There was no capital gain for Wednesday at QPR as they went down 3-0 under the Loftus Road lights.

Goals from Tomer Hemed, Luke Freeman and substitute Nahki Wells extended Rangers’ recent purple patch and condemned the visitors to their second defeat in five days.

After a relatively listless first half, the trailing Owls upped the ante in the second and were on the wrong end of a turning point when Lucas Joao hit the post before Freeman made it 2-0 from the very next attack.

It was that kind of night for Wednesday and Jos Luhukay’s men will head to Birmingham on Saturday determined to arrest the mini slump.

It was end to end through the early exchanges in West London, although nothing to trouble either goalkeeper until the 15-minute mark.

Ebere Eze played a nice ball through to Hemed, who forced Cameron Dawson into evasive action from range.

Daniel Pudil got in the way of a Hemed drive moments later but Wednesday hit back with stand-in skipper Barry Bannan firing narrowly wide 20 yards out.

With club captain Tom Lees on the bench, Bannan took added responsibility and the Scot was at the heart of all the Owls’ positive play.

Bannan played a key role in a half chance created for Atdhe Nuhiu, who was foiled by Joe Lumley between the Rangers sticks.

Back the ball went to the other end and Hemed was thwarted once more, this time by an Ash Baker block.

But the former Brighton man was not to be denied and broke the deadlock nine minutes before half time.

Dawson kept out Pawel Wszolek’s shot on the turn but could nothing to prevent Hemed heading home the rebound.

Wednesday started the second half with real purpose in a bid to get back on terms, attacking their hosts from the first whistle.

And they almost profited on 53 minutes when Joao glanced a Reach cross goalwards but the ball bounced out of play off the post.

And the Owls were made to rue their luck just a minute later as QPR promptly raced upfield and doubled their lead.

Wszolek clipped a cross into the danger zone and Freeman was on hand to bury his header high past Dawson and into the top corner.

Just three minutes after that blow, Wednesday suffered another one in every sense as Angel Rangel caught Pudil with a stray boot inside the box.

The referee was unmoved by the Owls’ penalty appeals and Pudil departed the action with blood streaming from a facial wound.

Wednesday were undaunted, though, and continued to press forward – Reach fizzed a curling shot wide with Lumley scampering across his goal.

Rangers were far from finished and almost put the game to bed when Wszolek unleashed a vicious effort that Dawson did well to push over the crossbar.

Counterpart Lumley denied substitute Steven Fletcher in the closing stages but it was Wells who hit the headlines from the bench, netting hard and low from 20 yards to apply the final coating of gloss for the in-form R’s.

Wednesday: Dawson, Baker, Hector, Pudil (Thorniley 58) Fox, Bannan, Pelupessy (Penney 75) , Onomah, Reach, Nuhiu, Joao (Fletcher 75)
