Everton winger Aaron Lennon scored midway through the second-half to earn Roberto Martinez’s side a value three points away to relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers, who themselves remain in a precarious position in the league table, reports BBC Sport.
Everton took the lead in the first-half through Seamus Coleman, but there were chances at both ends in the opening 45 minutes. QPR started the game reasonably well, and looked to take the game to their opponents before going behind.
Charlie Austin and Bobby Zamora worked a move, but couldn’t find an equaliser before the break. After half-time Junior Hoilett hit the woodwork, as Rangers stepped up their pressure, and eventually their relentless endeavour paid off.
Eduardo Vargas levelled the game for the Londoners near the hour mark, but Everton soon responded through Aaron Lennon, to pile misery onto the Hoops, while boosting their own chances of a late surge into the top-half.
Queens Park Rangers will certainly be disappointed by the result, as they had two goals disallowed in the game, let alone putting in a performance perhaps worthy of more, but ultimately suffered another defeat in the Premier League.
