The goal drought is over for Nahki Wells at Queens Park rangers as he scored the teams third goal as they secured a comprehensive 3-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night at Loftus Road.
Tomer Hemed’s second goal in two games, a Luke Freeman header and first goal for Wells secured the all three points against a Sheffield Wednesday side who had previously lost just two of their last 10 games.
Up 2 – 0 in the 83rd minute, the game was sealed with seven minutes to spare. A crunching tackle by Bidwell in the middle of the park allowed the ball to break to Eze. He looked up and calmly passed the ball to Wells, whose early shot found the corner of the net. 3-0 and job done.
QPR boss Steve McClaren feels Wells’ first goal for the club was the perfect end to a resounding victory against Sheffield Wednesday.
Striker Wells has been excellent since arriving on loan from Burnley but has endured frustration in front of goal.
“The spirit of the squad – the players are more delighted for Nahki than anybody,” McClaren said.
“That was perfect for us, for him to do that. He’s been frustrated but he’s never stopped working.
“He’s been great for the team and if you keep working and keep making runs you will score goals.
“He knows that and hopefully he’ll go on from this. Nahki has played really well and been unlucky on occasions but tonight has got his reward.”
