Friendly: Billericay Town 1 (Bricknell 54) Queens Park Rangers under-23s 5 (Prohouly 9, Eze 41, Oteh 44, 90+1, Grego-Cox 90+3)

Steven Caulker made his return to action for Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday night by playing 70 minutes of a 5-1 friendly win for the under-23 side at Isthmian Premier club Billericay Town.

Earlier this week, QPR boss Ian Holloway said having Caulker, who last played for the first-team in October 2016, back was like having a new signing.

The 25-year-old England international was making his first appearance this pre-season and lasted the majority of the game before being taken off with 20 minutes to go.

It had taken the west Londoners just nine minutes to open the scoring at New Lodge when Axel Prohouly found the target.

With four minutes left in the half, QPR scored a second when Ebere Eze fired past Town stopper Alan Julian.

Three minutes later, the Loftus Road club extended their lead when Aramide Oteh glided through the Billericay defence to score, with QPR 3-0 up at the break.

The hosts did pull one back in the 54th minute when Billy Bricknell shot past Hoops stopper Seny Dieng.

In the 70th minute, Caulker was replaced for the visitors, who had to play the final nine minutes with 10 men after Prohouly limped off injured.

Two further goals followed in stoppage time as first Oteh from spot, and then Grego-Cox struck to wrap up a comfortable win for the QPR elite development squad.

Billericay: Julian, Paine, Konchesky, Ellul, Robinson, Deering, Davies, Evans, Theophanous, Walker, Urquhart.

QPR: Dieng, Paul, Hamalainen, Owens (Wallen 60), Caulker (Fox 70), Finney (Phillips 69), Grego-Cox, Eze (Rowe 60), Oteh, Chair, Prohouly.

Subs: Herdman.

Referee: Eddie Smith.
