QPR stays bottom after 1-1 draw against Everton

Queens Park Rangers remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier

League standings after being held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on

Sunday, despite playing against 10 men for the final half-hour at

Loftus Road.

Junior Hoilett’s deflected goal for the hosts in the second

minute was canceled out in the 33rd when Sylvain Distin’s header

bounced off the post, hit QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar and rebounded

into the net – going down as an own goal against the Brazilian.

Steven Pienaar was dismissed in the 61st after picking up a

second booking for clipping the heels of Jose Bosingwa but QPR

couldn’t capitalize.

Indeed, the visitors, who stay fourth in the standings, came

closest to grabbing a winner when Phil Jagielka headed against the

crossbar in the first half.
