HAYES & Yeading boss Garry Haylock was delighted with his side's second-half fightback as they held a QPR XI on Saturday.
Haylock's men came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at Church Road against a QPR reserve side that boasted several players with first-team experience.
And the Hayes boss said: “We built on what we did last week as they were a very good side, especially in the first-half. They had players out there on £10,000 a week and you could tell as they were good. But we kept it down to 1-0 and as the game started top open up, we had chances. It would have been an unfair result if we had won though and a draw was a fair result.”
Patrick Agyemang opened the scoring for Rangers in the first-half by rounding new Hayes goalkeeper Lee Harrison, before firing home in the ninth minute.
And with first-team players Damion Stewart and Rowan Vine in their ranks, Rangers threatened to run riot.
But former Barnet goalkeeper Harrison denied Agyemang a hat-trick with fine stops and the home side's second-half improvement brought its reward when trialist Pierre Dubois produced a smart finish five minutes from time.
Meanwhile, a team of Hayes trialists were beaten 3-1 in a Saturday morning friendly by a Wealdstone XI at Brunel University with Toby Little netting a consolation.
