QPR goalkeeper Seny Dieng scored a dramatic equalizer to help produce one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Ross Stewart opened the scoring in the 31sst minute before Ellis Sims doubled their advantage in the 40th minute. Ilias Chair pulled one back for the away side before Dieng grabbed a point in the second minute of stoppage time.
Sunderland’s Alex Neil: “I might be pleased in the morning. I am not pleased at the moment. I am hoping one of our heads land on the ball. The only way to fix that is to get my goalkeeper to mark their goalkeeper, it’s numbers. It’s 10 versus 11. We just didn’t get our head on the game and if we do, we win the game. I have not been done by a goalkeeper before. Even then Ross has a chance with his left foot, the keeper makes a good save, Elliot hits the underside of the bar. When your luck is not in your luck is not in. We deserved to win the game. We played well first half, I thought we defended pretty well second half. I could see the game petering out.”
QPR’s Michael Beale: “When Seny went up an assistant said ‘are you happy?’ I said ‘I am not going to bring him back. When the goalkeeper goes up, who picks him up, he attacks both balls in. A crazy game. Seny is a modest young man, says a few words. What a magic moment for him. He is the first goalkeeper to score for QPR and the 900 or so fans who have made the round trip with the train strike, they get to say I was there. He has made a couple of great saves as well.”
