Eze’s penalty earns QPR a point at Derby

Derby 1 QPR 1

Ebere Eze’s penalty just before half-time earned QPR a point at Pride Park.

Eze calmly netted from the spot after Bright Osayi-Samuel was fouled by Martyn Waghorn, who had put Derby ahead.

Rangers are now without a win in their past seven matches and are still yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

But they battled back well after falling behind midway through the first half and more than deserved a draw.

After Luke Amos’ careless foul on Jack Marriott near the edge of the penalty area, Waghorn found the top corner of the net with the resulting free-kick.

Rangers responded strongly and Derby keeper Ben Hamer pushed away shots from Ryan Manning and Jordan Hugill before the equaliser.
