News: Blues suffer defeat to QPR today

22 December 2014

Southend United suffered a late defeat to a strong QPR side in a behind closed doors game

Blues suffered defeat in a behind closed doors match against QPR earlier today, losing the game 3-2.

Harry Redknapp’s side included the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Niko Kranjcar and Sean Wright-Phillips, and they took the lead through Kranjcar after 20 minutes. 

However, Blues found an equaliser through John-Joe O’Toole soon after, the midfielder tapping home following a spill by the goalkeeper.

With half time looming, Rangers restored the lead through an excellent Wright-Phillips volley.

But Blues found a way back into the game again, as Shaq Coulthirst crossed to Myles Weston, who slotted home, before Reece Grego-Cox won the game to the R’s late on.
