Folami Hits 60-Yard Stunner as U23s Win at QPR
Friday, 20th Oct 2017 16:49
Monty Patterson scored the first and Ben Folami a brilliant 60-yard second as Town’s U23s beat leaders QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road this afternoon.
New Zealand international Patterson gave Gerard Nash’s side the lead in the 37th minute, then on 63 Australian frontman Folami beat QPR keeper Seny Dieng with remarkable effort from several yards inside his own half. Aramide Oteh pulled one back for the home side in the closing moments.
The result means the young Blues go second, now two points behind the West Londoners, with previously second-placed Coventry City not in action until Monday.
U23s: M Crowe, D Crowe, Clements, McLoughlin, Woolfenden, Webber, McKendry, Dobra, Folami, Morris, Patterson. Subs: Marshall, Hayes, Foudil, Daniels.

The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
