Former Livingston goalkeeper Liam Kelly finally made his Championship debut for QPR last night.

The Scotsman has played second fiddle to Joe Lumley since the start of the season, with his only appearances coming in Carabao Cup matches.

Mark Warburton opted to use Kelly against Cardiff City last night and the night didn’t end well for the goalkeeper and QPR.

Cardiff eased past QPR on Kelly’s debut

It was easy for the Bluebirds against the Loftus Road side, winning comfortably in Wales with a 3-0 scoreline.

Whilst he did concede three, ex-Livi man Kelly wasn’t at fault for any of the goals conceded. The first was a header that he was left scrambling across his goal to save, but it was in vain.

The next one, from another Cardiff corner, was poorly marked by his teammates, leaving Marlon Pack with an easy finish.

A sumptuous volley from former Hearts man Callum Paterson sealed the deal as Kelly was confined to league debut despair.

He’d have hoped for better on his Championship swansong and he’ll be hoping this doesn’t impact his chances of starting QPR’s next match against West Brom.
