Tuesday evening’s victory for Queens Park Rangers over Bristol Rovers in the second round of the EFL Cup gave fans some much-needed cheer after we finally got off the mark in the 2018/19 Championship campaign.

Having taken our first three points of the year against newly promoted Wigan Athletic, we made it back to back victories across all competitions with a 3-1 win in midweek at Loftus Road to book our place in the third round draw.

Goals from Bright Osayi-Samuel, Pawel Wszolek and Matt Smith eased us to a largely comfortable victory although a late consolation for them was a disappointment on the clean sheet front.

With Osayi-Samuel getting us off the mark in the 4th minute of the first half, he was a quick go-to guy for praise for fans as they took to social media to react to the match, both during the game and following the full-time whistle.

With Osayi-Samuel arguably our best player in the game, if there was to be a criticism of the youngster it was simply better finishing would’ve seen him add more to the scoreline and increase his own personal tally.

But we’ll take that.
