Sylla & Pawel Strike Again
02.01.17 - 15.00
QUEENS Park Rangers secured back to back wins for the first time under Ian Holloway with familiar faces sealing the maximum.
Hot off the heels of stopping the rot of six successive defeats at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Holloway named only two changes to the heart of midfield, allowing Ryan Manning to continue following his fine debut.
Jordan Cousins and Ariel Borysiuk came into a team with new-found confidence and it was Idrissa Sylla that managed to break the deadlock once again following a James Perch long throw.
The Guinean international latched onto a half-clearance from the aforementioned throw to smash home from close range - Bialkowski given no chance.
The leveller after the break was really something to behold - Manchester United youth product Tom Lawrence firing a rasping drive in off the post from 25-yards.
The contest was on a knife edge but with little under ten minutes remaining it was the home side that struck the decisive blow with a moment of genuine quality.
Substitute Nedum Onuoha hit a high and hopeful pass for Pawel Wszolek to run onto - he got in behind a static Adam Webster to round Bialkowski and slide home.
Back to back wins for Rangers with the same goal-scorers on target - they are five points clear of the Championship drop zone with the respite of the FA Cup around the corner against in-form Blackburn Rovers.
