Match Report: Derby County 2-0 QPR

By on 23rd April 2019

Derby County moved back into the Championship play-off places thanks to a Harry Wilson stoppage-time double to earn them three points against Queens Park Rangers at Pride Park on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s side looked like they were going to miss out on the chance to move above Middlesbrough and Bristol City, who both lost, until Luke Freeman brought down right-back Jayden Bogle inside the penalty area in the third minute of added time.

Liverpool loanee Wilson kept his nerve to convert his spot-kick beyond the reach of Joe Lumley into the bottom left-hand corner.

Wilson then went on to seal the three points on the counter-attack in the 11th minute of stoppage time to put the East Midland’s club up to sixth, ahead of Boro on goal difference and with a game in hand.

The dramatic finish at Pride Park gives Derby hope to return to the Premier League after an 11-year absence, but they finish the season with Bristol City (away), Swansea City (away) and West Bromwich Albion (home) – three very tough fixtures for a side that has struggled in recent months.

As for QPR, the West London club have now won just one of their last 10 games but Rotherham United’s defeat at home by Birmingham City on Saturday means they are guaranteed a place in the Championship next season.
