QPR   1 - 1   Sheff Wed

QPR 1-1 Sheff Wed

QPR 1-1 Sheff Wed

Tom Soares scored a crucial late equaliser to keep Sheffield Wednesday two points above the relegation zone and only three points behind the hosts.

Alejandro Faurlin scored his first goal for QPR to put them ahead with a half-volley from Damion Stewart's header.

On-loan striker Tamas Priskin almost doubled the lead but his shot was smartly saved by keeper Lee Grant.

Jermaine Johnson came off the bench to save the day for the Owls as he crossed for Soares to nod in at the far post.

Wednesday substitute Leon Clarke could even have stolen all three points in the dying seconds but could only shoot straight at keeper Carl Ikeme.

The draw left the Owls in 20th spot in the Championship with five games remaining, with Rangers in 18th with six matches still to play.


QPR boss Neil Warnock:
"This is the most frustrated I've been since I came to the club.

"We should win games like that. Wednesday have got to be delighted with that point.

"I can't wait until the summer, when I can rectify what needs to be rectified. We lack a physical presence up front."

Sheffield Wednesday boss Alan Irvine:
"I'm sure there will be issues to be resolved on the last day.

"I'm hoping we won't need to be involved in all that, but obviously it is getting closer and closer.

"When I came here we needed to win 11 out of 23. We've now lost only one in eight but are still where we are, which shows you how tough the league is."
