Match Of The Past: Queens Park Rangers
We have another six matches from the past this morning, today featuring a club which survived relegation by virtue of results elsewhere.: Queens Park Rangers. QPR have always been a relatively popular choice for the television companies, not least because of the close proximity of Loftus Road to the BBCs Television Centre, although it is worth pointing out that the majority of these highlights actually come from the cameras of ITV. Our first match comes from January 1972, seeing QPR travel north to Kenilworth Road to play Luton Town and our second match also sees them on their travels, this time to the West Midlands to play Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux in October 1973.
The 1975/76 season was Queens Park Rangers’ best ever in the league, and our third match is the final match of that season at home to Leeds United, a match which the team needed to win and hope that Liverpool dropped points in their final match in order to lift the title. We then skip forward to 1982 to see a Second Division Rangers play their first ever FA Cup semi-final, at Highbury against First Division West Bromwich Albion. Next up is a second trip to Molineux, this time for a match from the top of the Second Division from December 1982 against Wolverhampton Wanderers, and our final match comes from January 1992 and sees Rangers travel to Old Trafford to play Manchester United.
