Depsite defeat in the first game of the season at a remodelled Loftus Road, the reds can take a lot of positives from this game and optimism for the coming season. The big spenders put on a firework display prior to the match, but it was Barnsley that had all the sparkle for most of the match.
Big spending, cash rich QPR were always going to be a big initial test for the reds, but we were up to the challenge with Iain Hume notching his first in the colours of Barnsley Football Club on 5 minutes, after being found by Brian Howards nicely weighted through ball, Hume finished welll with a well placed shot into the bottom right of goal to give Barnsley the early lead, and to the early season delight of Barnsley FC fans everywhere. Sadly, we saw our lead turn into defeat, due to a double strike in as many minutes (29 & 31 mins) from Fitz Hall but the final result in no way reflects the football played, with the reds bossing the game for most of the 90 minutes. Hall had a golden chance to get his hat-trick when QPR got a penalty, but it was nicely saved by Steele.
The Reds did do themselves alot of credit, looking the stronger side by a long way during long stretches of the second half, following on from the excellent first half, when we had QPR pegged back and desperately defending, but all this pressure was not converted into an equaliser.
Van Homoet got his marching orders on 83 minutes, after a rash tackle.
