Patson Daka made an immediate impression for Leicester in an entertaining game at Loftus Road, as they drew against QPR.

The Zambian, who signed this summer from Red Bull Salzburg, scored one and earned a penalty as the Premier League side twice came from behind.

Rangers looked impressive throughout the contest, and deservedly took the lead when the pace of Ilias Chair was too much for a flat-footed Leicester defence. His cut-back to Charlie Austin was finished off in fine style, past the outstretched Eldin Jakupovic.

Brendan Rodgers subbed Harvey Barnes for Marc Albrighton at half time, after the 31-year old extended his stay at the King Power.

Rangers continued to look the more energetic of the two sides. Chris Willock could have doubled the lead on 53 minutes, but his fierce shot ricocheted off the post and away.

However, the second goal QPR threatened came soon afterwards, when Yoann Barbet headed home from close range after a flick-on.

Leicester made a further nine changes on the hour mark, in addition to Albrighton at the beginning of the half.

The planned substitutions appeared to finally kick-start their pre-season campaign into life, with two goals in the space of three minutes.

Their first goal of the game – and in pre-season – came on 74 minutes, when Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall pounced on a loose ball in the area to fire home from close range.

Three minutes later, Daka ran through on to a through ball, with the Zambian finishing off in style with his first goal for Leicester.

QPR retook the lead on 82 minutes when Rob Dickie was first to the ball after it came off the post.

The pace of Daka forced keeper Seny Dieng to upend the 22-year old with three minutes remaining, and Kelechi Iheanacho made no mistake from the spot.
