The in-form Junior Hoilett scored a magnificent goal to put QPR ahead in the west London derby at Loftus Road.Hoilett struck seven minutes before half-time when he darted in from the left and curled a right-footed shot beyond David Button and into the top corner of the net.Button had been busier of the two keepers, gathering Alejandro Faurlin’s early free-kick, saving from Tjaronn Chery after the Dutchman had cleverly turned away from Harlee Dean, and keeping out Hoilett’s low shot from the edge of the penalty area.At the other end, Sergi Canos twice fired wide; first after Rangers defender Gabriele Angella had given the ball away, and then when the on-loan Liverpool youngster hit the side netting with a powerful drive.And a couple of minutes after Hoilett’s goal, Ryan Woods went close to equalising when he thumped a shot against the post from 25 yards.QPR named an unchanged side, while Alan McCormack returned after a calf injury to make his first start for the Bees since November.Marco Djuricin was left out of the starting line-up, so Brentford started without a recognised striker – Alan Judge is playing in the central attacking role.QPR: Smithies; Onuoha, Angella, Hill, Perch; Henry, Faurlin; Phillips, Chery, Hoilett; Polter.Subs: Ingram, Kpekawa, Tozser, Luongo, El Khayati, Mackie, Washington.Brentford: Button; Yennaris, Dean, Barbet, Bidwell; McCormack, McEachran; Woods, Swift, Canos; Judge.Subs: Bonham, Clarke, O’Connell, Kerschbaumer, Saunders, Djuricin, Vibe.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook read more

We had to make a decision whether to play him or not take the risk.”We decided not to take the risk, hence he wasn’t on the bench.”It was really a precaution. When somebody’s at a stage where they’ve come through an injury and they are at the end of it, if you are still a little bit unsure then it’s not right to take that risk.”The winger only has four Premier League starts this term, along with six sub appearances. read more

jim harbaugh jameis winston crab legs storyLast April, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston set the blogosphere on fire after it was revealed that he stole crab legs and crawfish from a Tallahassee Publix. Eventually, Winston was suspended from the baseball team, though he faced no suspension from the football team for his transgression. Still, it was a big deal.Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who back then was the coach of the San Francisco 49ers, clearly hadn’t heard about Winston’s mistake. In a recent interview recorded for ESPN’s Draft Academy, Harbaugh and Michigan QB coach Jedd Fisch peppered both Winston and Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty with some questions they’ll face from real NFL teams. When Fisch brought up Winston’s “stone crab” issue, Harbaugh, who definitely had no clue what he was talking about, gave Winston a bewildered look. It’s incredible.Here’s a Vine of his reaction, per Barstool. Winston made a number of mistakes in his short time on campus – a few of which weren’t even mentioned in the clip. It’d be interesting to hear whether Harbaugh would be willing to take a chance on him – if he were still in the NFL. read more
