Bishop Continues Comeback and Jackson Hits Hat-Trick as Strong Town XI Thrash QPR
Wednesday, 14th Nov 2018 17:38
Teddy Bishop played 60 minutes and Kayden Jackson netted a hat-trick as a strong Town XI beat QPR 5-1 in a behind closed doors friendly watched by new manager Paul Lambert at Playford Road this afternoon.
In addition to Bishop, who was taking part his second game as he returns from his latest hamstring injury having played 45 minutes for the U23s against Cardiff last week, Myles Kenlock was involved in his first match since suffering an ankle injury and was given the first half.
Jackson opened the scoring just before the 20-minute mark from a Bishop ball into the box following a Grant Ward corner.
The former Accrington striker grabbed his second from the penalty spot after Bishop was fouled, then Jack Lankester made it 3-0 just before the break with a low strike.
With 10 minutes remaining Tayo Edun made it 4-0 with a 25-yard shot, then two minutes later Jackson completed his hat-trick before the visitors bagged a late consolation.
Meanwhile, Blues loanee Trevoh Chalobah joined the England senior squad for training earlier today.
Chalobah is one of three Town players with the U20 squad for Monday's friendly against Germany at Colchester alongside Flynn Downes and Andre Dozzell.
Town: Wright, Cotter, Nsiala, Donacien, Kenlock (Clements 46), McLoughlin, Bishop (Folami 60), Edun, Ward, Lankester, Jackson.
