Queens Park Rangers fans are calling for a change of goalkeeper as Joe Lumley came in for criticism from his own supporters in the wake of the Hoops’ defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday lunchtime.
Lumley was caught out for the Baggies’ opener as defender Nathan Ferguson wandered into the QPR half unopposed before his speculative effort went beneath the dive of the 24-year-old.
It seems it was a shot that the ‘keeper could have dealt better with, judging by the comments – and some fans feel that it may be about time for backup Liam Kelly to be granted a run of games between the sticks, with Lumley’s supposed error not his first of the season as Rangers fans bemoaned ‘another mistake’ from the shot-stopper.
He was arguably at fault previously during QPR’s win over Luton Town a fortnight ago, when he gifted forward Harry Cornick a goal thanks to some poor distribution.

@QPR Was this another bad mistake by Lumley?

If Lumley doesn’t get dropped for next week, must be because Warbs doesn’t rate Kelly. Lumley made 2 easy saves after his mistake, not enough to redeem himself. I’ve stuck with him all season, but he makes a bad mistake every game atm and needs some time out of spotlight #QPR

True Lumley makes mistake after mistake time for a change ?

I have been his biggest defender but will not complain either way on Wednesday, if he’s picked, I am fine with that, if dropped, fine with that also, I rate JL!

Well… Lumley honestly worries me as much as Green did… #QPR

Positioning for first was shocking…. player shouldn’t have been given time and space in the first place but after he did Lumley should have had it covered

Only Lumley has been making mistakes all season, cost us a number of goals and almost many more through silly errors

LUMLEY ISN’T FIT TO WEAR THE SHIRT!

Lumley should of been dropped weeks ago
