LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: HOLLOWAY STOPS WOLVES IN THEIR TRACKS WITH LATE WIN

The League Managers Association’s five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Queens Park Rangers for their 2-1 victory against title contenders Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday 28th October 2017.

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

QPR Manager Ian Holloway will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.

Match Report

Conor Washington and Matt Smith were on target, as Rangers ended a seven-game winless run by toppling promotion favourites Wolves at Loftus Road.

An action-packed Sky Bet Championship encounter, QPR took a 41st-minute lead when Washington finished past John Ruddy at the second attempt. 

Back came Wanderers two minutes later, as Leo Bonatini thundered in at close range following good work from Diogo Jota.

But it was to be Rangers’ day and, after upping the ante after the break, substitute Smith headed home Joel Lynch’s hanging cross to earn Ian Holloway’s men an impressive victory in W12.
