Mark Warburton’s side headed into the game looking to build on the impressive 2-0 win they secured away at Bristol City on Saturday. They delivered a solid enough display against the league’s basement club and in the end managed to make their extra bit of quality tell in the final third. However, it was not a vintage performance from Mark Warburton’s side.
The one real moment of quality in the game came for QPR’s winning goal, with Chris Willock producing a moment of individual quality skipping past a couple of Wycombe defenders and then firing the ball across the face of goal with Chair managing to get the ball over the line. That proved to be enough to secure back-to-back wins for the Rs.
Austin took to his personal Instagram page following the win against Wycombe, with the West Bromwich Albion loanee perhaps summing up everyone’s thoughts on the game by suggesting it was not the prettiest. He also lauded Chair for managing to get himself on the score sheet for the seventh time this season in the league.
He wrote: “Not the prettiest tonight but got the important three points and into the top half of the table! Pleased for the kid (Chair) scoring again.”

Austin is right in his suggestion that is what not the sort of game where QPR were able to play silky free-flowing football. That was perhaps never going to be the case with Wycombe battling for their lives at the bottom of the Championship and trying to do all they can to pick up points.
However, the Rs did show fighting spirit and a winning mentality to come through on the right side of the result and make their moment of quality count. That is a positive sign and shows gives QPR plenty to build from over the next few weeks as they target a strong ending to the season.
It is no surprise to see Chair being given a special mention by Austin, with the midfielder having once again made a real difference for QPR. The 23-year-old is starting to become a highly influential performer for the Rs and is showing he has the knack of being in the right place at the right time with his seven goals in 33 league appearances so far (Sofascore).
