QPR are currently performing above expectations in the Championship this season and are now fourth in the league despite drawing 2-2 with Reading at Loftus Road last night.
Mark Warburton will be left frustrated with his side after they lead twice but failed to hold on to secure the three points.
Summer signings Nakhi Wells was on target in the 29th minute as his long range shot found the corner, but Reading replied almost instantly when George Puscas’ well placed finished leveled the scores two minutes later.
QPR took the lead again when Jordan Hugill’s deflected volley found the net on 58th minutes but the Hoops couldn’t hold on as Sam Baldock’s close range finish earned a point for Reading.
The draw means Warburton’s side are now three games unbeaten but after winning five of their previous seven, a draw may leave Hoops fans disappointed they couldn’t hold out for a win in this fixture.
QPR’s impressive start to the season can be defined by two key moments so far.
Coming from behind against Wigan
To draw from a losing position against Reading yesterday saw the tables turn for QPR as they have come from behind to either draw or win in four matches this year.
Due to this, QPR have picked up an impressive ten points from losing positions so far this season which has helped Warburton’s side to cement themselves as surprise promotion candidates.
Warburton’s side have gained important points from losing positons against Huddersfield, Wigan, Sheffield Wed, Hull, but it was thei win against the Latics which kick start an impressive run from the end of Augus which has seen them climb the table.
Three second half goals from Hugill, Wells and Eze was enough to turn the result around for QPR after trailing 1-0 at half time and since this result, QPR have only lost two of their last eight.
Signing Hugill and Wells
Warburton had a complete overhaul of QPR’s squad this summer and brought in a host of new faces after a disappointing season last year.
Two players who have hit the ground running are Hugill, on loan from West Ham and Wells, who made the permanent move from Burnley after spending last season on loan at Loftus Road.
After their respective goals last night, the duo now have 14 goals between them after just 13 matches in the Championship which accounts for nearly two thirds of the teams goals this season.
Both strikers have proven to be a goalscoring threat and if their form continues, more teams could be conceding three or four goals against this QPR side.
