All Square in Slovenia...
Celje 2-2 QPR
Angelo Balanta staked his claim for the first team, with an impressive double last night as QPR drew 2-2 with Celje in Slovenia.
Balanta opened the scoring midway through the first half and scored again just after the hour mark with a fine finish from an difficult angle. In between, the home side equalised just before half time and went ahead almost as soon as the second half had begun. The game saw a first start in a Rangers shirt for new Argentinean signing Alejandro Faurlin.
Gaffer, Jim Magilton told the Official QPR Website;
'I thought the lads were excellent tonight. Each and every one of them worked their socks off in boiling hot temperatures, and I can't praise them highly enough."
We scored two excellent goals and conceded two sloppy goals, but overall I'm really pleased with the work-out.'
