Queens Park Rangers 4-2 Stoke City
Queens Park Rangers clawed their way back from two goals down to take all three points in their win over Stoke City at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Cameron would start the game for QPR and play the entire 90 minutes against his former team.
The host would find themselves down a goal in the 27th minute when Sam Clucas found space for himself on the right side to make a darting run towards goal. He then dribbled past a couple of defenders before slotting the ball into the goal.
The Potters doubled their lead four minutes later when Tyrese Campbell struck from the left side of the area.
However, QPR would finally get themselves into the game and cut the deficit in the 34th minute Jordan Hugill ran onto a pass from teammate Ryan Manning to strike from close range.
Eberechi Eze tied things up four minutes later when he tucked the ball underneath goalkeeper Jack Butland.
The tide of the game had surely shifted in favor of the host and they went on to take the lead in the 71st minute through Bright Osayi-Samuel. Yoann Barbet would send a long ball from QPR's end towards the midfielder, and he did well to get control of it before striking from a difficult angle.
Ilias Chair sealed the game for QPR in stoppage time as he put away the fumbled ball from Butland.
Queens Park Rangers sits in 16th place in the standings with 42 points.
