Queens Park Rangers 1-2 Fulham: Cyrus Christie winner keeps Fulham in promotion hunt

Harry Arter’s equaliser was Fulham’s first goal since the Championship season resumed on 20 June

Fulham kept their Championship automatic promotion hopes alive as they came from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers and put an end to their post-lockdown losing sequence.

Scott Parker’s side had lost both games since resuming their season to two of their main rivals, Brentford and Leeds United.

But, despite trailing inside a minute to a Jordan Hugill header, Fulham had the character and spirit to come back and beat their west London rivals.

Harry Arter levelled after 21 minutes when he cut inside from the right and beat QPR keeper Liam Kelly at his near post with a low left-footed shot that slipped under the left hand of the former Scotland Under-21 man.

Cyrus Christie then claimed all three points with a 75th-minute stunner – the full-back’s first league goal for Fulham on his 52nd appearance.
