Half-time: QPR 1 West Brom 2

first_imgCharlie Austin’s 24th-minute penalty – his ninth goal of the season – hauled QPR back into the game after they made a diabolical start at Loftus Road.Rangers fell behind when Joleon Lescott headed home after Sebastien Pocognoli’s right-wing corner had been flicked on at the near post by Stephane Sessegnon.And Silvestre Varela doubled West Brom’s lead when he waltzed through the QPR defence and applied the finish after exchanging passes with Sessegnon, who has been a constant threat.But Rangers were given a much needed boost when James Morrison was adjudged to have impeded Leroy Fer following Joey Barton’s corner and Austin smashed in the resulting penalty.Albion caused Rangers problems on the right-hand side in the early stages.In the second minute, Sessegnon pulled the ball back for Craig Gardner, whose shot was pushed out by keeper Rob Green.There was another anxious moment for the home side when Sessegnon took on Yun Suk-Young – who later went off injured – and found Baggies forward Brown Ideye, who fired wastefully over.Lescott made no mistake, however, nodding in his first goal since joining Albion in the summer.Sessegnon was also involved in the second goal 10 minutes later and the visitors looked in complete control before Austin, back from suspension, netted for the fifth consecutive home game.Albion remained dangerous though and Rangers continued to struggle to contain Sessegnon, who had a powerful effort tipped over by Green five minutes before the break.Austin also went close when he curled a shot narrowly over. QPR: Green, Onuoha, Dunne, Caulker, Yun (Hill 29), Vargas, Henry, Barton, Fer, Austin, Zamora.Subs: McCarthy, Ferdinand, Phillips. Mutch, Kranjcar, Hoilett.

With the fresh spurt in fatalities, the death toll shot up to 104 in the past week.Taking suo motu cognisance of media reports, the NHRC asked the U.P. Chief Secretary for a detailed report within four weeks.Details of action soughtThe NHRC also asked for the steps taken for the families of the victims and the action taken against officials responsible for the deaths.A total of 63 patients admitted to the intensive care unit of the government-run facility died in a span of days, reportedly because of the oxygen supply being stopped due to pending payments to the supplier.Thirty of the deaths took place over 48 hours on August 10 and 11. The government has maintained that the children died due to different illnesses, including Japanese encephalitis (JE).Acting Principal of the hospital Dr. P.K. Singh said that 12 children succumbed to JE on Saturday, 13 on Sunday and 16 by 9 p.m. on Monday. “The full report for the day will be available only after midnight,” said Dr. Singh. “We see these many cases every year at this time. The deaths are actually in keeping with the corresponding figures from last year,” he added.The NHRC said the incidents pointed towards “gross callousness on the part of the hospital administration and the Medical Education and Health Department of the Government of Uttar Pradesh.” It observed that it had taken up the issue of deaths caused by JE with the Chief Secretary during an open hearing and camp sitting conducted in Lucknow on August 9-11.“However, in spite of the assurance given by the State administration, the situation has not improved,” the NHRC said.As reported earlier, the private company providing liquid oxygen to the medical college hospital stopped supply as an outstanding bill of ₹70 lakh had not been cleared. After the deaths, a magisterial inquiry was ordered to find the cause.last_img read more

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Ex-Southampton coach Bowen tips Elyounoussi to return after Celtic spellby Freddie Taylor11 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Southampton coach Mark Bowen expects Mohamed Elyounoussi to return to the club after a spell with Celtic. The Norwegian moved north of the border this summer after a poor debut campaign at St. Mary’s.”Ross [Wilson] was behind the signing and really rated him as well,” said Bowen.”But it was maybe just the wrong timing for him. Mo needs a lot of the ball to go and do what he does best.”He might not have been ready for the Premier League at that time but, after a year at Celtic, I expect him to go back to Southampton and be far better prepared. “He has to convince them that he can do a good job for them but I’m sure he can because he’s an excellent boy and a top player.” last_img read more
