Queens Park Rangers drew 0-0 at Swansea City in the Championship last night.
Liam Kelly kept his second, and only QPR’s fourth clean sheet of the season in South Wales last night. It was a solid performance from the travelling R’s, who avoided a sixth-straight defeat on the road after their weekend defeat at Huddersfield.
The Scot made a couple of good interceptions last night, and bar one moment of madness which almost allowed Rhian Brewster in on goal, he commanded the defence effectively.
Here’s what he posted on Twitter after the game:

In-front of him was Angel Rangel, Ryan Manning, Grant Hall and Yoann Barbet – only Hall played at the weekend, and this new-look QPR defence coped well with Swansea’s attacking talent last night.
Rangel, who played almost 400 games for Swansea was as reliable as ever, Manning was well-involved but lost possession in his own-half on occasion, whilst Barbet alongside Hall had his best game in a QPR shirt.
The Frenchman has missed nearly four months of football but slipped seamlessly back into the side last night, and looks as though he’ll play a big part in QPR’s season finale.
Kelly meanwhile has finally locked down the no.1 spot at QPR. He was Warburton’s preferred choice earlier in the season but suffered a nasty ligament injury, and missed a couple of months action.

Having replaced Joe Lumley though, Kelly has pleased a lot of fans with his reliable performances, and his ability to control and command the defence more effectively.
