Free Scoring R's Tamed by the Lions...

QPR 0-0 Millwall

QPR's 100% home record came to an end as London rivals Millwall denied the Championship leaders a fifth straight victory, in what was an entertaining night's football at Loftus Road.

Due to it being a midweek game and reports of some serious disturbances around one of our normal haunts, the British Queen before the match, which was widely publicised due to their being a bit of 'history' between the two sets of supporters after previous meetings at the New Den - the gang arrived in dribs and drabs, but were a full strength nevertheless, with Corporate living up to his nickname, going, er, Corporate for this one. PK's nephew, Craig joined the gang in his place in the stand.

Onto the game and it was obvious from the off, that Millwall came with a plan, plenty of men behind the ball and try to catch the R's on the break. But it was Rangers who were dominant throughout and Millwall will be indebted to their keeper, David Forde, who saved good efforts from Buzsaky and Mackie in the first half.

Forde could perhaps count himself lucky to have stayed on the field in the second half, when a fine low drive from Taarabt was pushed away, Forde and Helguson tussled for the rebound, and the Lions Keeper shoved the R's frontman to the floor.

Clint Hill missed the best chance of the game, blazing a free header over the bar from another superb Taarabt delivery. But with so much possession and domination, there was always that chance that Millwall may break away - Rangers goalkeeper Paddy Kenny had not had much to do but was called into action in the 72nd minute, keeping out Steve Morison's far-post header from Tony Craig's cross. With Millwall sensing they could steal a surprise win, Kenny also pulled off a sharp save to deny Chris Hackett from 20 yards and ensure honours ended even.

QPR: Kenny, Hill, Derry, Taarabt, Helguson, Buzsaky (Leigertwood 85), Mackie, Gorkss, Walker, Connolly, Ephraim (Agyemang 90). Subs: Cerny, Rowlands, T.Smith, Borrowdale, Parker.

Lofty's Man of the Match - Kyle Walker

In summary, a frustrating night in front of goal for the R's, but a decent enough game of football all the same, with everything you would hope and expect from a London Derby and sadly, an incompetant referee also added to the frustration. Unfortunately, with the reputation of some of Millwall's so called supporters, we also got everything we expected from them also. But as always on these pages, I will not condone violence or glorify these absolute animals...

But what I will bring to everyone's attention, was the disgraceful behaviour of one of the Gold Range Stewards at the Loft Upper Exit - STEWARD NO G262 - YOU ARE A DISGRACE!! Shutting the gate on a petrified young lad running for his safety and to be with his older brother, when Millwall thugs jumped the wall in South Africa Road. Yes, I will be writing to the Club about you and be prepared for another mouthful of deserved abuse if I ever see you at the gate again - you utter scumbag!!
