Gareth Ainsworth’s QPR beaten 3-1 by Blackburn Rovers


Gareth Ainsworth made his first game as QPR manager a loss, falling 3-1 at home to Blackburn Rovers. Sam Gallagher scored twice while Sammie Szmodics netted one. It was QPR’s first loss since October.

Blackburn took the lead when Tyrhys Dolan cut inside and unleashed a shot which deflected perfectly for Gallagher to head in. But Rangers leveled matters just 10 minutes later when Tim Iroegbunam side-footed home his first goal for the club.

Sam Gallagher opened the scoring

Gareth Ainsworth’s return to Loftus Road as QPR boss ended in defeat as Blackburn made the most of their opportunity with a 3-1 victory. Tim Iroegbunam leveled things up after Sam Gallagher had put Rovers ahead, but Sammie Szmodics restored their lead early in first half stoppage time for Rovers.

The hosts began the match with their usual optimism, but were well matched by a determined Blackburn side. Tyrhys Dolan’s shot took an unfortunate deflection and looped towards Gallagher who nodded it past Seny Dieng within one quarter of an hour for a thrilling lead for Lancashire club.

Rangers looked the more likely to score until on-loan Aston Villa midfielder Iroegbunam leveled 10 minutes before halftime. But Rovers soon after sealed their win with Sam Szmodics slotting home after Lewis Travis’ beautiful pass and Harvey Elliott (on loan from Liverpool last week) providing an assist.

Tim Iroegbunam levelled

On Saturday, Gareth Ainsworth’s QPR suffered their third straight defeat as they were defeated by Blackburn Rovers. Sam Gallagher opened the scoring with a stunning header before Tim Iroegbunam leveled things up 10 minutes later.

Ainsworth made one change from his team that beat Blackpool midweek, replacing Daniel Ayala in the centre of defense with Hayden Carter. Although Blackburn looked disjointed after Gallagher’s opener, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side quickly recovered with Szmodics scoring on the stroke of half-time to restore their lead.

Iroegbunam, on-loan from Aston Villa midfielder Neil Critchley this season, was a constant threat, particularly in the first half. His technical ability and good temperament should allow him to flourish in the Championship.

Sammie Szmodics restored Blackburn’s lead

Blackburn extended their unbeaten run to seven games by beating QPR and spoiling Gareth Ainsworth’s debut. Sammie Szmodics put Rovers ahead with an amazing first-half goal, before Sam Gallagher added a second goal in injury time to complete the scoring.

Blackburn are now fourth in the table and enjoy a three-point lead over seventh place. It is their best start to a season since winning their first three league games back in 1988.

Sam Gallagher scored a brace

Gareth Ainsworth’s QPR started the game well but ultimately fell to a 3-1 defeat by Blackburn. Sam Gallagher scored twice as Rovers secured their third consecutive victory and extended their unbeaten league run to six matches.

After Tim Iroegbunam had leveled, Blackburn took control with Sammie Szmodics scoring their second goal; however, Gallagher’s second strike made sure there was no way back for Rangers.

From beginning to end, Blackburn took their promotion challenge into the final day of the campaign with a victory. Rovers move up to seventh in the table and are three points off sixth-placed Sheffield United with this win.

Ilias Chair was sent off

QPR missed a chance to return to the top two as Gareth Ainsworth’s first game as manager ended in defeat. Blackburn ended their run of four matches without a victory with a 1-0 triumph over QPR that saw Ilias Chair score the only goal at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

QPR suffered a disappointing defeat to an impressive Blackburn side who have won all six of their recent league matches. Rovers had the early advantage and Reda Khadra was presented with an ideal chance from Tyrhys Dolan’s cross. But Blackburn proved too strong for Ainsworth’s men to hold off an impressive Blackburn outfit.

He displayed great directness and skill to play a clever one-two with Dolan, but his shot was deflected wide by Seny Dieng in the R’s goal. Furthermore, Reda Khadra’s curling free kick was saved by the keeper in the 77th minute.
