QPR march on: QPR 2-1 City

This was always going to be a tough game. Rangers are unbeaten this term, and City have stumbled a bit recently.

Listening to it on the radio it sounded an open and fast past game as one might expect give the positions and line ups of both sides.

Oddly, Jones went with Drinkwater, a central midfielder out wide on the left, with Whittingham inside him.

It was City who took the lead with Bellamy slotting home on 13 minutes. At the time we were in the car, stopping to pop into a shop. Ministates said "I bet when we come out it'll either be 1-1 or 2-0".

Sadly it was 1-1.

And so it remained until half time. The games remained open, but QPR gradually took more control, and eventually and possibly, inevitably Adel Taraabt's 9th strike of the season put the game beyond City.

Losing 2-1 to a side like QPR at their gaff isn't the end of the world, especially as the 3rd placed Jacks also lost last night. But it means QPR edge further in front. City need to get back to winning and consistent ways. November has again been a bad month for them, as it so often is with two losses a draw and just a single win. You won't win promotion with that form, and City need to turn that round and soon.
