Half-time: QPR 2 Sheff Wed 1

first_imgGoals from Nedum Onuoha and Andy Johnson put QPR in control at Loftus Road after they had endured a bumpy start to life in the Championship.Joey Barton made a surprise return for the home side, who were on top before Adthe Nuhiu put Sheffield Wednesday ahead on 18 minutes.But they responded strongly and were rewarded when Onuoha diverted Junior Hoilett’s 39th-minute shot into the net – the defender’s first goal for Rangers.And Johnson struck three minutes later, heading in the loose ball after Barton had been denied at the far post by keeper Chris Kirkland.Rangers gave debuts to Danny Simpson and Karl Henry, while Charlie Austin is on the bench along with fellow new signing Richard Dunne.But it was Wednesday’s debutant who announced his arrival in style.The Turkey-born striker, picked up on a free transfer, fired home from near the edge of the box after wriggling away from Armand Traore and Clint Hill.It came against the run of play, as Rangers had dominated the opening stages with Hoilett shooting over before Johnson had an effort deflected narrowly wide and another well saved.And after QPR fell behind, Hoilett and Bobby Zamora both missed chances to equalise after being found at the far post.Hoilett could not keep his volley down after being picked out by Barton’s cross, and Zamora then fired straight at Kirkland after Simpson’s cross had been headed on by Johnson.But Rangers eventually got the goal they deserved and Johnson’s simple finish leaves Wednesday facing a uphill task.QPR (4-4-2)Green; Simpson, Onuoha, Hill, Traore; Barton, Henry, Faurlin, Hoilett; Johnson, Zamora.Subs: Murphy, Derry, Dunne, Austin, Yun, Jenas, Wright-Phillips.
