Barton on-song for impressive QPR

Published Add your comment

Joey Barton confounded the naysayers as he led embattled QPR to a 3-0 victory against Swansea at Loftus Road.

Barton has received a frosty reception since joining from Newcastle, but has impressed in recent weeks and he fired the relegation-threatened west Londoners ahead on the stroke of half-time, controlling the ball with aplomb before lashing home.

QPR deservedly doubled their advantage 10 minutes after the restart through Jamie Mackie, whose shot from the edge of the box deflected in off Angel Rangel, and Akos Buzsaky wrapped up victory with a thunderous 25-yard strike that gives the Hoops a two-point cushion over the drop zone and leaves Swansea nursing a fourth successive league defeat.
