Stevenage 1-4 QPR

Rangers ran out comfortable winners in what was a promising display against Conference side Stevenage.

DJ, PK and myself made the short trip up the A1 for the second friendly and a stronger Rangers side that the one at Aldershot, included 3 of our 5 new signings - Damion Stewart, Egutu Oliseh and Adam Czerkas. We were then treated to a great 1st half with two fantastic goals from the R's - A 35 yard screamer from Ainsworth on 17 minutes, and a delightful curler into the top corner from Donnelly on 32 minutes. A well taken goal from Dobson in between(21 mins) meant that Rangers were leading 2-1 at the break.

The second half saw a few changes and Rangers took control. Two well taken goals from Captain, Kevin Gallen saw Rangers end up comfortable winners.

QPR: P Jones (Cole 58), Bignot, Stewart (Rose 58), Kanyuka, Howell, Ainsworth, Oliseh (Bailey, 40), Rowlands (R Jones 58), Donnelly, Czerkas (Baidoo 58), Gallen.

Performances of note came from Ainsworth and Donnelly, and second half subs Baidoo and Jones looking very lively up front. Gallen looked much sharper than at Aldershot and took his 2 goals well.

A healthy Rangers following included friends of Lofty Heights, Gobi and Corinne - great to see you again guys.

Rangers now travel to Gillingham on Saturday for our final friendly before the Italian games. Hopefully, we will get to see the highly anticipated debut of Nick Ward in the Rangers midfield.

    Hello there Lofty

    It's been a while but great to see you at Boro!
    It was great to see the R's again and as it was a local game for me, was well chuffed to be there - I live a mile from the ground!!!!
    What did you make of the polish guy up front? I personally thought we looked a better side in the 2nd half with Baidoo, Donnelly and Jones all linking up well.
    I for one, have been screaming out for us to buy a striker but maybe just maybe Baidoo might come good and solve our goalscoring problems!!

    Great to see you too mate!

    I was a lot more up for the game last night. Aldershot was right at the end of the world cup and I guess I must have been a bit 'footballed out'... if thats possible??

    I liked the look of Czerkas as I think he gives us a different option. Hopefully, he will get a good start to the season and keep a place.

    I agree with you that Baidoo and Jones linked up really well and Rangers looked a good side coming forward.

    Early days I know, but enough that I cant wait for the season to start now!

    Come On You R'ssssssss!!!
