Brentford win at QPR for first time in 52 years

Romaine Sawyers scores Brentford's second goal

Romaine Sawyers scored his first goal for Brentford as they beat Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road for the first time in 52 years.

Josh Clarke opened the scoring, moving past Nedum Onuoha before squeezing a shot under QPR keeper Alex Smithies.

Sawyers met a Maxime Colin pass with a fine first-time effort into the top left-hand corner to add a second.

Idrissa Sylla went closest to a QPR response, only for John Egan to nod his goal-bound header over the bar.

Victory, which lifted Brentford to within a point of the Championship play-off places after 15 games, came at a cost with midfielder Lewis Macleod leaving the pitch on a stretcher after suffering a knee injury.

Defeat leaves Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s QPR side 13th in the table and with just one win from their past seven home league matches.

In a high-tempo start to the west London derby, Brentford carved out a number of chances with Sawyers forcing Smithies into the first save of the match after 20 minutes.

Scott Hogan twice threatened for the Bees and QPR’s Conor Washington was the first to test visiting keeper Daniel Bentley before Clarke put Brentford ahead.

QPR looked brighter after the interval, with Tjaronn Chery a particular menace, but it was Sawyers’ neat side-footed finish that ensured victory for Dean Smith’s side and ended a four-match winless run.
