Queens Park Rangers 1-1 Bristol City

Aden Flint heading into his own net.
Aden Flint headed into his own net to give QPR the lead - but Bobby Reid levelled from the spot.

Bobby Reid's late penalty saw EFL Cup semi-finalists Bristol City take a point against Queens Park Rangers.

QPR led when Robins centre-back Aden Flint got the final touch to a free-kick from his former team-mate Luke Freeman to put the ball in his own net.

Josh Brownhill hit the post and Josh Scowen cleared off the line from Matty Taylor as City pressed for a leveller.

They finally got it 10 minutes from time after Flint was hauled down in the box and Reid converted.

The result means Bristol City slip a place to fourth in the Championship table and are three points off-second-placed Cardiff City at the halfway stage of the season.

Meanwhile QPR remain in 18th place and are seven points off the drop zone.

City were back in Championship action less than 72 hours after beating Manchester United in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Wednesday.

Freeman, who left City to join Rangers in January, created the opener as his left-footed free-kick skimmed off the top of Flint's head and into his own net.

The centre-back almost atoned early in the second half as he headed narrowly over from Joe Bryan's corner, before Brownhill and Taylor both went close.

But when a long throw came into the box, and Flint was adjudged to have been fouled, Reid kept his nerve from the spot.
