QUEENS Park Rangers’ Under-23s continued their pre-season campaign on Saturday, with a tough clash against Manchester United’s U23s side.
Marko Ramkilde, Charley Kendall, Sinclair Armstrong and Sean Adarkwa were on target for the R’s, as they were condemned to a 6-4 defeat at the AON Training Complex.
The game, which was played behind closed doors in Manchester, burst into life in the 23rd minute when the Red Devils went ahead.
Only minutes later the R’s were level, courtesy of Danish forward Ramkilde who tapped home.
But, two quick goals from the hosts before half-time ensured Rangers went in at the break trailing.
Things quickly got worse for the visitors after half-time, when another two quick goals gave the R’s a mountain to climb.
Kendall started the recovery with his 55th-minute strike, but a United effort three minutes later only stamped the Premier League’s side authority on the game once again.
Late goals from Armstrong and then Adarkwa ensured the R’s headed back to capital with their heads held high.
QPR’s U23s are back in action on Wednesday evening when we travel to local side Harrow Borough, kick-off 7pm.
