Nahki Wells and his Queens Park Rangers teammates racked up their third straight win thanks a comfortable 3-0 Sky Bet Championship success over Ipswich Town at Loftus Road.
Following victories over promotion-chasing duo Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough, QPR were ahead this time around when Pawel Wszolek poked home from close range in the 30th minute.
Joel Lynch’s headed effort four minutes later doubled Rangers’ advantage, before Wells’ 74th-minute strike made sure of a season’s double over Paul Lambert’s team – sending Queens Park Rangers up to eighth in the league table in the process.
With the score already 2 – 0 and after some patient approach play, sub Ilias Chair’s pull-back from the right was taken on by Wells, whose turn and shot from 14 yards arrowed into the opposite corner.
Reggie Lambe and his Cambridge United teammates left it late to deliver a belated Christmas gift, with Jabo Ibehre bagging a last minute winner in a 2-1 victory over Crawley Town in Sky Bet League Two.
United fought from behind with an excellent strike by George Maris pulling them level after Dominic Poleon’s opening goal, before Ibehre rounded off a hardworking second half display by grabbing three points and Colin Calderwood’s first win as U’s Head Coach.
Cambridge United lined up with three changes to their starting eleven, as Colin Calderwood re-introduced Jevani Brown, Lambe and Jabo Ibehre.
Jonte Smith and his Lewes Football Club teammates finished level at 2 – 2 with Bognor Regis Town.
A Theo Widdrington own goal in the 11th minute gave Lewes the lead, which they took to the halftime break.
Lewes would be reduced to 10 men in the 54th minute when Dayshonne Golding was sent off, and fourteen minutes later it was 1 – 1 when Joe Tomlinson scored.
Tomlinson would then give Bognor Regis Town the lead when he scored his second in the 74th minute, but four minutes later Lewes were level when Kieron Pamment scored to make it 2 – 2.
The match was not done there as both teams would finish the game with 10 men after Bognor Regis Town player Ed Sanders was sent off in the 85th minute.
