Schlupp goal not enough for Leicester

Leicester City were defeated 3-2 by Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.

Jeffrey Schlupp must have thought he’d earned Leicester a point with a second-half equaliser at Loftus Road.

The Ghana wideman’s finish wasn’t enough to secure a point, however, and he and his teammates were ultimately left pointless.

Esteban Cambiasso opened the scoring for the visitors inside the opening five minutes, ending Leicester’s 504-minute goal drought. However, a Wes Morgan own goal before the break drew the Hoops level.

Leroy Fer’s 45th-minute goal turned the contest on its head.

However, Ghana wideman Schlupp, who had contributed the assist for Cambiasso’s goal, tapped in on 67 minutes to restore parity. He and his teammates sought a winner, but were undone six minutes later following Charlie Austin’s header.

The wait for a win goes on for the Foxes, who haven’t won since September.

Riyad Mahrez played the first hour for the visitors, while Nedum Onuoha and Armand Traore featured for the Rs.
