Half-time: Aston Villa 1 QPR 1

first_imgQPR conceded a goal seconds before half-time to undo an otherwise excellent 45 minutes at a rain-soaked Villa Park.Jermaine Jenas gave Rangers a deserved lead midway through the half, slotting home after Bobby Zamora’s shot had been saved by keeper Brad Guzan.But Villa pulled level with virtually the last kick of the half, Gabriel Agbonlahor rising above the visiting to defence to power home a header from Matthew Lowton’s cross.QPR, chasing a rare away win, largely dominated proceedings.Guzan made two outstanding stops in the space of a couple of minutes to deny Chris Samba, using his fingertips to turn a header over the bar and later flying to his left to keep out the defender’s driven effort.After Jenas’s goal, Rangers came close to doubling their lead on three occasions.Zamora saw a free-kick whistle inches over the crossbar, Guzan produced another fine stop to deny Loic Remy and Jose Bosingwa’s free-kick hit the post.Villa enjoyed spells of concerted possession but keeper Julio Cesar – back in at the expense of the injured Rob Green – was untroubled until Agbonlahor pounced.QPR: Cesar, Bosingwa, Samba, Hill, Fabio, Park, Mbia, Jenas, Remy, Zamora, Townsend.Subs: Murphy, Taarabt, Wright-Phillips, Mackie, Granero, Onuoha, Hoilett.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
