Behind the Whistle – Preston QPR and Other Decisions



With so many decisions made on the field, it can be overwhelming to keep track of them all. Former EFL referee Chris Foy has selected key match decisions from Skybet Championship, League 1 and League 2 to give supporters an understanding of how laws are applied on the pitch.

Preston North End’s 2-0 victory against Queens Park Rangers in the Championship marked a welcome return to winning ways, breaking an eight-game drought without defeat in league play.

What happened?

QPR have been on a roll of late and head to Preston this weekend hoping to continue their impressive form. Only nine points away from the Play-Off spots, they’ll be hoping to build on their early success.

Preston are eager to end their season on a high after beating Blackpool last time out. With this victory, Preston should have the upper hand heading into this match against Queens Park Rangers who have struggled for form recently.

The opening half was a tight battle with few chances for either side. But the home side got off to an impressive start as Emil Riis’ deft touch opened the scoring after Jimmy Dunne failed to clear Kenneth Paal’s corner kick yalla shoot.

McCann’s injury

McCann is eager to get back in the saddle soon. He said he had been dealing with wrist soreness for “several weeks”, but hadn’t expected the injury to develop so rapidly.

Batters who use their hands frequently may experience a broken hamate bone, but for him it was an unexpected occurrence to have it break after just one swing.

He will no longer throw with his left hand, but instead focus on improving his squatting position and catching with his right hand as he recovers from surgery.

Preston are in a good form after their 1-4 victory away at Blackburn Rovers and hope to build on it this weekend when they host Queens Park Rangers at Deepdale. Unfortunately, on-loan Tottenham striker Troy Parrott will be sidelined for the foreseeable future while Emil Riis is making progress with his fitness and may start the game.

Maguire’s injury

Maguire’s injury has likely had an immense effect on his decision-making, with Ralf Rangnick, interim manager, expressing grave concern that he hasn’t found the form he once had for Manchester United.

Furthermore, his absence will likely mean he misses the final four games of the season, creating a major hole in the defensive line.

Queens Park Rangers suffered their fifth defeat in a row, this time to Preston North End. At halftime, Queens Park Rangers found themselves 2-0 down after Emil Riis and Cameron Archer netted goals.

QPR are five points off the top six and two behind Preston, leaving them needing to salvage their playoff hopes. Unfortunately, this form has been frustrating and it will be difficult for Alex Neil to put a positive spin on it.

McAvoy’s choice of replacement

McAvoy had to weigh the pros and cons when making his decision. He considered factors such as the team’s recent form, injuries and his own past experience playing against QPR.

Despite these obstacles, he still managed to make the right choice. He chose a replacement who he knew would make an impact.

Brad Potts was an ideal signing, and has been in excellent form so far this season. The former Barnsley winger has scored in each of his first two Championship games, suggesting he could be a useful option up front in the coming months.

QPR’s winner

On Saturday night against Derby County, it was an unlucky goal that was awarded during extra time – and it came from QPR player Alex McCarthy! It’s never easy to come from behind when your goalkeeper scores during added time!

Ilias Chair was the man that made it happen, having the movement to get around Derby’s defence at all times. Although he is young, I believe he has potential for greatness.

He scored his first goal of the Championship, giving QPR a massive win and putting them on the rise.

QPR are now only one point behind the top three and Derby remains in relegation territory, meaning it’s highly likely they will return to the Premier League by season’s end.
