CLASSIC: Sky Blues 3-2 QPR

McFadzean's first City goal completes a memorable comeback...

10 November 2022

We take a look back at a classic meeting with Queens Park Rangers ahead of this weekend's clash with the R's.

The two sides met at the beginning of the 2019/20 season when the Sky Blues secured a 3-2 win at St Andrew’s in a five-goal thriller which marked City’s first victory since their return to the Championship.

QPR went ahead on 41 minutes when Lyndon Dykes smashed home a penalty from 12-yards out after Kyle McFadzean was deemed to have fouled Bright Osayi-Samuel inside the area.

The Sky Blues were level just three minutes later when Ryan Giles floated a cross to the back post for Matty Godden whose downwards header went through the legs of R’s keeper Joe Lumley and into the net.

City completed the turnaround early in the second half when Fankaty Dabo’s cross from the right found the feet of Callum O’Hare who drove towards goal and fired an effort into the bottom left corner from close range.

Rangers equalised on 75 minutes when City failed to deal with a corner from the left which found its way to Yoann Barbet at the back post who lashed an effort past Marko Marosi and into the roof of the net.

The Sky Blues found a winning goal with five minutes left to play when Kyle McFadzean powered home Gus Hamer’s corner from the right, heading the ball into the top-right corner to score his first goal for the club.
