Report: QPR U23s 2-2 City U23s

City’s youngsters twice fought from behind to earn a hard-earned point away to QPR.

Freddie Hinds and Tommy Conway both found the target in the 2-2 draw, which saw the hosts end the game with nine men, forced through a sending off and injury.

Harper and Hinds combined with the latter going close in the early exchanges, but QPR took the lead inside five minutes with an unstoppable shop into the top corner from Olamide Shodipo.

In an end-to-end start to the game, City created another good chance down the left side with Harper providing a dangerous cross into the box but this time Ricardo Rees headed the chance wide when well placed at the back post.

Minutes later, City were level when Hinds curled in a fine effort though they would go on to soak up the pressure for the rest of the half. They defended well, only for the hosts to retake the lead just before the hour mark.

The young Robins struggled to clear their lines and QPR forward Aramide Oteh fired his shot into the top corner from close range.

On came Josh Owers to replace Jamie Taylor after 60 minutes, while Conway came in for Louis Britton five minutes later as the game gradually started to turn.

QPR were reduced to ten men when Callum Pearson was chopped down in the middle of the park and City would take advantage with the extra man, scoring a well-worked equaliser on 86 minutes.

The Robins used the width of the pitch well to play the ball to the right side where Hinds beat his man and picked out Conway who finished with aplomb after a tight touch with his left foot before firing home with his right foot.

QPR went down to nine men for the last minutes due to an injury but it would end all square.

City v QPR: Wiles-Richards, Edwards, Webb, Towler, H Smith, C Pearson, Harper, Jamie Taylor (Owers 60), Britton (Conway 65), Hinds, Rees (Bell 78). Subs not used: Robertson, James Taylor.
