Charlie Austin was at it again with a goal from the penalty spot but QPR couldn't stage another big comeback as they lost their ninth consecutive away match at the Emirates 2-1 on Boxing Day.
It seemed unlikely that QPRs first road points of the season would come at the Emirates and they didn't but it was closer than expected after Olivier Giroud was sent off. Austin spent most of the first half as a make-shift defender warding off set pieces and corners in the QPR box. With Giroud off early in the second half, Austin and the Rs took a more attacking posture and were eventually rewarded with a penalty that Junior Hoilett drew from Mathieu Debuchy and Charlie Austin converted. The Rs pressed for the equalizer and had some solid chances and potential penalty claims but couldn't get the second. Dec 26 - 2:35 PM
