THE TOON 2 THE STEPTOE'S FROM SHEPHERD'S BUSH 2 *** EFL 2016-2017

Posted '11:11am bells' Thorsday 2nd February 2017

"IT FEELS LIKE A DEFEAT!"
RAFA (in the right technical area) LOOKS ON!

We started off with 'aall guns blazin' and took the lead with barely 40 seconds on the clock when Jonjo Shelvey fired home from 20 yards oot at The Leazes End!
And then we sat back and let QPR come at us instead of 'finishin' them off!
Ciaran Clark then suffered a bad heed injury after a clash of heeds with QPR's Mackie and had to gan off for treatment
The equaliser came bang on half time (az ever!) and waz fully desorved by wor visitors!
THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)

We regained the lead in the 54th minute through a Matt Richie heeder at The Gallowgate End, but couldn't 'finish off' 'The Steptoes'!
Perez missed 2 great chances, when he shot when he shud have passed to Richie---and passed to 'no one'?,when he shud have had a shot!
Just when it looked az though we would grab the 3 points, Ciaran Clark inexplicably back heeded ower Darlow in the last minute to give QPR a point!

The fact that we didn't add fresh faces to wor squad in the transfor window may well come back to haunt us!
GALLOWGATE END ACTION (2nd half)
