Sandro
Sandro was making his first QPR appearance since last December

Midfielder Sandro scored twice as QPR came from behind to beat Rochdale in the second round of the EFL Cup.

Rochdale led after just five minutes as Matty Lund headed in at the far post from Donal McDermott's corner.

But the Championship side hit back shortly before half time through Brazilian Sandro, who swept home from Tjaronn Chery's corner.

Ian Henderson shot wide for Rochdale and Sandro netted QPR's winner with an emphatic finish from inside the area.
