QPR tame Lions to record victory
PAUL Furlong’s QPR Under-18s got back to winning ways at Harlington on Saturday.
Goals from Josh Bowler and Jardel Francis-Adeyinka completed a league double over Millwall, whilst bringing a welcome end to the R’s nine-game winless run.
Rangers began well, and made the breakthrough midway through the first period. Caden Genovesi’s cross from the left was guided home by a neat first-timed finish from Bowler.
They couldn’t hold their lead until half-time, though. After winning possession on the halfway line, Millwall countered quickly to equalise three minutes before the break.
Rangers weren’t to be denied, though – restoring their lead with what would prove the winning goal 12 minutes from time. After a corner wasn’t dealt with by the Lions’ defence, the ball broke to Francis-Adeyinka in the box who drilled his shot past the goalkeeper to clinch the R’s victory.
