Young R`s Defeated At Church Road

Young R`s Defeated At Church Road

Queens Park Rangers put out a selection of youth players and were ultimately defeated by Hayes & Yeading at Church Road.

Two late goals put Rangers to the sword in the final stages of the game, as Rangers succumbed to defeat against their Blue Square South opposition.

In a tight first half, neither side could break the deadlock with Nicky Bulmer in particularly good form. Getting his chance in the absence of Reece Crowther, the young stopper kept Garry Haylock`s side at bay with a succession of excellent stops.

The deadlock was broken in the second period when Chris Arthur`s excellent wingwork on the left flank picked out Argentinean youngster Christian Nanetti on the far post, whose sublime first touch was combined with his deft finish.

To their credit Hayes & Yeading never through into the towel and came back in stunning fashion in the closing moments of the game. Two goals in the dying moments condemned Rangers reserves to defeat, on the same day the R`s Under 18`s also succumbed to late heartbreak at Chelsea.

With the majority of the squad in Scotland, Rangers could only call upon the experience of Chris Barker as the only first team squad member.

Stand in manager and R`s goalkeeping coach David Rouse commented following the final whistle at Church Road:

'In the first half we had a number of good chances, and we should have done better." Rouse told QPR.co.uk

'The final ball let us down. Having said that, Nicky Bulmer was excellent for us at the other end."

'After our goal, we sat back. It was a lesson for the younger lads in how to kill a game off."


Rouse continued:

'You could see that as the match wore on, Hayes & Yeading were probably going to nick something. And that's what they did.

'But this was a good exercise for our players, and they will have certainly learned from it.'


Rangers Team: Nicky Bulmer, Joe Ostler, Chris Barker, Ryan Myers, Lee Brown, Chris Arthur, Matt O'Brien, Josh Ford, Christian Nanetti, Antonio German, Chris Flood.

Rangers first team squad earlier travelled up to Scotland for the forthcoming friendly against Falkirk, don`t forget to come back to Vital QPR for the match report and reaction north of the border.
