Vital Report - QPR 2-2 Blackburn

2 - 2

Loftus Road


Attendance: 14,007


Blackburn's Championship season continued with a draw at Loftus Road against QPR on Wednesday.

A first win of the season is something that Blackburn are still waiting for having twice lost the lead in London, going ahead through Duffy and Rhodes to be pegged back each time by a Henley own goal and Onuoha, Rovers had to settle for a two-two draw.

Duffy(14) put Blackburn into an early lead, he won a header from a Conway freekick ahead of debutant 'keeper Smithies and made sure of this by prodding the ball home with this lead taken into half time.

Rovers could, maybe should, have had more goals though in this opening 45-minute period?

Failure to take these chances cost Blackburn immediately after the break, Steele saved an effort from Austin but Henley (46) couldn't keep out Austin's follow up effort on the line with QPR level a minute into the second half.

Having scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's defeat at Fulham Rhodes (60) was on target again on the hour, getting onto a Koita knock on to put Blackburn ahead again.

Onuoha (79) headed a late equaliser from a Tozser corner, not only denying Blackburn that first win of the season but a chance to move out of the bottom three meaning Rovers remain second bottom with only Rotherham below them....

Spurr got knocked out early when he took a knee to the face, which looked like it could have been a serious injury but after treatment, and being stretchered off, he seemed well enough but would be likely to miss the weekend fixture?
