Queens Park Rangers confirmed today that keeper Joe Lumley had joined Doncaster Rovers on an emergency loan.
🚨 Another emergency loan for Joe.#QPR

Darren Moore’s side have been left in a tough position after Stoke City recalled Josef Bursik following an injury to Angus Gunn.
However, they wasted little time in sorting a replacement, with Lumley’s arrival announced today and he is registered in time to go into the XI for the big game against Sunderland tomorrow.
Despite starting the season in goal for the R’s, Lumley has quickly found himself as third choice under Mark Warburton. As a result, he wasn’t likely to be involved for the Londoners in the next week anyway.
This is the second time that the 25-year-old has made a short-term move, having joined Gillingham in similar circumstances at the end of October.

Given the short time it’s taken Lumley to go from starting in the Championship to making emergency loan moves, it got the QPR fans talking. Here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
Tbh I expect lumley to be sold in January, I don't see him moving dieng.
Dieng has shown why he is a better keeper commands his box a lot more then Joe who tends to stay on his line to much.
Think at best he is a league 1 keeper not.

Gone to a good club, great opportunity for Joe ta show his worth, and gain more vital confidence.

It's over for Joe, unfortunately he isn't good enough and to move down a league is the only option. Nice lad, I wish him well

Think he's quality at League 1 level. Dieng did well at Donny and sure Joe will too.
