The Potters boss endured a torrid 10-month spell with the Rs but has restored his reputation at the Britannia Stadium, and Harry Redknapp is hoping for a positive welcome.Queens Park Rangers QPR Vs Stoke City highlights.
Mark Hughes is preparing to face a hostile reception when he returns to QPR with his Stoke City side in the Premier League on Saturday.Queens Park Rangers Vs Stoke City 2-2 all goals video.
The Welshman suffered a torrid 10 months in charge at Loftus Road during 2012, and left under a cloud following a poor start to the 2012-13 campaign in which QPR failed to win their first 12 matches.
Kranjcar was the star man for QPR, bailing his side out despite a disappointing offensive performance. Stoke held firm for long periods and will be disappointed to head back to the Britannia Stadium with merely a point. That’s all we have time for, I’ve been Simon Harrison and I hope to see you again next time.
FULL TIME! All square at Loftus Road, in an entertaining 2-2 draw at the bottom end of the embryonic Premier League table. Goals from Crouch and Diouf looked to be enough for Stoke, but a late Kranjcar free-kick salvaged a share of the points for Redknapp’s men.
88′Goal Niko Kranjcar
GOOOOOOOOOAL! KRANJCAR EQUALISES FROM THE FREE-KICK! The Croatian midfielder dips home a fantastic effort, which gets up and over the wall beyond rasping beyond the despairing reach of the goalkeeper! He’s been QPR’s main threat all game!
51′Goal Peter Crouch
GOOOOOOAL! CROUCH MAKES IT 2-1! The physical striker comes back to haunt his former coach, with good work down the left from Moses proving key again. The Nigeria international cuts back a pass to Crouch, which Ferdinand should perhaps cut out, but the English striker makes no mistake! He sweeps home a powerful finish.
42′Goal Steven Caulker
GOOOOOOOAL! CAULKER HEADS HOME FROM A CORNER! The former Spurs defender manages to prise himself free of Shawcross, before heading the ball back into the mix. Adam and Crouch attempt to hack clear, but the latter puts his sliced clearance into the back of the net! That should be an own goal!
11′Goal Mame Biram Diouf
GOOOOOOOOAL! DIOUF BUNDLES HOME THE OPENER! Moses whips in a cross from the byline, which Crouch nods back across goal after climbing over Ferdinand! The former Man United striker is able to knock a close-range finish beyond Green to give Stoke the lead!
