Adomah’s last-minute goal gives QPR victory at Watford

Substitute Albert Adomah scored a last-minute winner for QPR – his first goal for the club.

They pulled off a stunning comeback at Vicarage Road, where Charlie Austin equalised after Troy Deeney’s penalty had put Watford ahead.

Rangers were the better side in the first half but a defensive aberration led to them going behind five minutes into the second.

Ismaila Sarr robbed Lee Wallace near the left-hand edge of the area and was then clumsily bundled over by Geoff Cameron, with Deeney blasting in the resulting spot-kick.

But Austin hauled QPR level with his 50th goal for the club and second in three matches since his return on loan.

Chris Willock, also on as a substitute, did superbly on the right, creating space for a cross and then delivering for Austin to head home at the far post.

And the winner also came via a fine cross from the right, this time by Todd Kane.

Adomah controlled the ball beautifully and his emphatic finish gave keeper Daniel Bachmann no chance.

It clinched a third consecutive away win for the R’s and lifted them to 17th in the Championship table.
