Rangers legend makes first start in two months in shock Championship victory

Rangers legend Lee Wallace earned his first start in two months as Queens Park Rangers earned a shock 2-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road in the English Championship.

Mark Warburton’s side have struggled for consistency this season and even with the three points yesterday find themselves in 17th place in the English second tier.

However, that result is their third win in four as they look to climb back into mid-table with Wallace no doubt hoping he can hold down a spot in the side.

The iconic Rangers full-back – who remains a popular figure with fans after continuing with the club in the lower reaches of Scottish football – moved to QPR last summer.

In the second year of a two-year contract, Wallace played the full 90 minutes as the Rs secured an impressive victory against promotion hopefuls Watford.

This was only Wallace’s 10th appearance of the season and his first since the 1st of December last year, but he showed his influence to help QPR to a late victory.

Geoff Cameron would give away a penalty early in the second half which Troy Deeney would dispatch for Watford.

But striker Charlie Austin would equalise before a late Albert Adomah strike would secure all three points for QPR with Warburton’s side winning their last three away games on the bounce.

Watford’s first defeat in four games has dented their automatic promotion hopes with the Hornets now fifth, three points off second having played a game more.

Rangers fans were left frustrated by the club when they failed to properly recognise Wallace on social media after the player left for Queen’s Park Rangers in 2019.
