Nahki Wells and his Queens Park Rangers teammates secured their first three points of 2019 with an excellent 1-0 victory over Leeds United at Loftus Road.
Luke Freeman’s clever finish three minutes after the break was enough for Queens Park Rangers to claim a hard-fought win over the Whites.
The result moves QPR above Stoke in the table and provides Wells and his teammate’s first victory in 11 league matches.
Late in the first half a few crunching tackles from Jordan Cousins and Grant Hall seemed to lift the Loftus Road crowd but their team were yet to create any opportunities of note. Massimo Luongo had Queens Park Rangers best chance of the half when he fired over from the edge of the box after good work from Wells.
And it was Queens Park Rangers who struck first with Freeman once again producing a moment of quality to give them the lead. Luongo went on a rampaging run down the right wing and squared it for Luke Freeman who nonchalantly flicked the ball into the net for his seventh goal of the campaign.
Queens Park Rangers so nearly doubled their lead just before the hour mark. Freeman dropped his shoulder and went past a couple of players with the ball finding the path of Wells 10 yards out but Kiko Casilla did really well to smother him.
