Ghana's No. 1

Tykes beat QPR to give Asbaghi first win

Published on: 12 February 2022

Barnsley had failed to win in their 13 previous league games under Poya Asbaghi

Domingos Quina's stunning strike gave bottom side Barnsley victory over promotion-chasing QPR - their first win since Poya Asbaghi took over as Tykes boss.

Goalkeeper David Marshall got a hand to Quina's left-footed shot but the ball bounced in off the underside of the bar.

Barnsley had lost their previous six league matches and were without a win in 13.

Rangers had not lost in seven league games but badly missed forward Chris Willock, who was ruled out of the trip to Oakwell after picking up an injury in training.

They struggled to create clear-cut chances, although Lyndon Dykes should have equalised in the final seconds but was unable to connect with Yoann Barbet's cross.

The 74th-minute goal came after Barbet and then Moses Odubajo gave away possession.

Claudio Gomes picked up the loose ball and found on-loan Watford midfielder Quina, who took full advantage.

Barnsley remain bottom but the five teams immediately above them all lost, enabling Asbaghi's side to close the gap to second-bottom Derby to just one point.

QPR, who remain fourth, have lost five and drawn one of their past six matches against Barnsley, who have been a bogey team for them in recent seasons.
