Luke Amos celebrates his winner for QPR

Luke Amos’ late goal earned the Queens Park Rangers an important victory over other Huddersfield Town promotion prospects, putting them in fourth place.

It took 80 minutes for the breakthrough to happen in an entertaining and open encounter, with Chris Willock dancing to the right and swinging a perfect cross for Amos to head powerfully into the net just under the nose of Terriers goaltender Lee Nicholls. .

Both teams contributed to an ebb and flow of 45 minutes, Ollie Turton giving goalkeeper Seny Dieng a save to make in the opening minutes while Yoann Barbet hit the Huddersfield bar with a header from a corner.

The Rs arguably overshadowed the second half as Stefan Johansen in particular took control with crisp passes and smart moves.

Huddersfield created at the break as Danel Sinani and Josh Koroma had chances that didn’t really test Dieng.

On the other side, Nicholls turned Charlie Austin’s weak effort around the post and was right to turn down Ilias Chair when played, but Amos ‘header eventually ended the visitors’ resistance and took earned Mark Warburton’s team a third victory in four games.

In Chair, Willock and Johansen, QPR had a creative focus that was a thorn in Huddersfield’s side throughout, and has continued the club’s record of scoring in every league game so far this season.

Carlos Corberan’s Huddersfield created a lot but found Dieng in good shape and referee Graham Scott refusing to point a finger when Fraizer Campbell fell into the box.

The narrowness of the division comes down to the fact that their loss still leaves them just three points behind Stoke in the sixth, although their away form has been a winless concern in the last six games of their trip. .
