Half-Time Report: Benik Afobe scores as Wolverhampton Wanderers lead Queens Park Rangers

Benik Afobe and Kevin McDonald score as Wolverhampton Wanderers lead Queens Park Rangers at half time.

Wolverhampton Wanderers lead Queens Park Rangers 2-1 at half time of their Championship clash at Molineux.

Wolves made a fast start and almost took a second-minute lead as Dave Edwards's cross was headed narrowly wide by striker Benik Afobe.

Massimo Luongo had QPR's best effort in the opening minutes as he forced Emilliano Martinez into a sprawling save with a bending left-footed effort from 25 yards.

However, it was the home side who took the lead when Edwards's shot was deflected into the path of Afobe, and he lashed it into the back of the net from a few yards.

QPR went close to equalising a few minutes later as Tjaronn Chery stung the palms of Martinez from the edge of the box after a flick from Charlie Austin.

Wolves doubled their lead minutes later though, as Kevin McDonald smashed the ball into the back of the net from the edge of the box.

However, QPR hit back as Austin headed in Matt Phillips's cross from the left-hand side.
