QPR 0 Manchester City 0 – Dull Draw with probably the worse minute played in football
QPR and Manchester City played out a dull draw where both the teams went away from the match unhappy with a point. It was an affair that had not a lot of action bar a period of 30 seconds which was described at the time as the worst minute played in the game that year.
It was when QPR was attacking the City goal and had close to six chances in space of 20 seconds to score a goal but failed to put the ball in the net. The last miss Les Ferdinand was easier to score than to miss, which he did manage to keep out of the net!
