Wolves lost 1-2 to Queen Park Rangers in the English Championship, with the Rangers using the game to end their six straight games losing streak. A late winner from Pawel Wszolek ensured Wolves lost at Molineux.
Idrissa Sylla opened scoring in the second half when he connected to a cross from Wszolek in the 53rd minute. The hosts fought back to equalize through Edwards who scored from Helder Costa’s cross in the 61st minute. Wszolek effort in the 87th minute ensured QPR ended victors after the encounter.
“In the last couple of games we’ve played some wonderful football and got nothing, Today it was against the run of play. We’ve come here and stolen the points but that is what you have to do in football sometimes,” Rangers coach Ian Holloway said after the victory.
Holloway added that the game was truly not the best in terms of performances of the team even though they won the duel. However, he said the spirit and determination to win the game saw them through.
“It was probably the worst that we’ve played but the best heart that we’ve shown. When they got the equalizer, it looked ominous. But I asked for fight and spirit and that’s as good as I’ve seen. The winner is the luckiest, ugliest goal you’ll ever see,” the manager added.
Fan groups are keen to give a show of support to the Wolves players, with fans urged to but tickets for their next home match via this website, and be ready for a tribute on 22 minutes to try to prove to the players that they have every faith in their abilities.
Wolves counterpart Paul Lambert claimed that the team played decent but lacked “that finishing touch.” Wolves dictated the game as they had 61 to 31 ball possession and had four times the shot of their guests. Wolves had six goals on target only scoring once unlike QPR that had just two and converted both.
The victory will see QPR move two spots up on the table, two points away from their opponents who place 16th on the log.
