Wells nets in QPR win

Nahki Wells continued his rich vein of scoring form after netting in Queens Park Rangers' 3-0 win at home to Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship today.

The Bermuda striker, on loan from Premier League side Burnley, scored his sixth goal of the season when he fired into the far corner in the 74th minute.

The home side took the lead when Wells's shot was parried out to Pawel Wszolek, who slotted home from a tight angle on the rebound on the half-hour mark.

Joel Lynch headed in the second in the 34th minute from Luke Freeman's left-wing free kick.

The victory lifts QPR to eighth in the table, two points adrift of the play-off places.

Steve McClaren, the QPR manager, said: “This was a difficult game for us, a tough game, mentally. We were expected to win at home but Paul Lambert sets Ipswich up to be difficult to beat.

“They had a lot more of the ball than we really wanted them to have, but we needed to be professional.

“I was delighted with the clean sheet and we could have had more goals. We scored the goals at the right time, giving us that cushion.”

Reggie Lambe helped Cambridge United earn their first win under new manager Colin Calderwood after beating Crawley Town 2-1 at home in League Two today.

Lambe was substituted in the 91st minute. Jabo Ibehre's struck late on to seal the victory after George Maris had cancelled out Dominic Poleon's opener for Crawley.

Cambridge are 22nd in the table, one point above the relegation zone.

Jonté Smith, the Bermuda forward, played the full match in Lewes' 2-2 draw away to Bognor Regis in the Bostik League Premier Division today.

Kieron Pamment and Theo Widdrington were on target for the visiting side, while Joe Tomlinson bagged a brace for Bognor Regis.
