Rs stopper returned to Chairboys on emergency loan deal last week

While many of the Queens Park Rangers squad enjoyed a rare Saturday off, keeper Matt Ingram was busy keeping goal for former club Wycombe Wanderers.

With the Chairboys missing their two senior stoppers through injury, Ingram returned to his former club on a seven-day emergency loan deal.

The 24-year-old played the full 90 minutes between the sticks as Wycombe, managed by former Rs midfielder Gareth Ainsworth, earned a 1-1 draw at Sunderland in Sky Bet League One.

Ingram had previously made 140 appearances for Wanderers before joining the Loftus Road club in January 2016.

And the keeper said he was delighted to pull on the Chairboys jersey one more time.

Speaking to the Wycombe website, Ingram said: “It was like a dream come true to come back and play against Sunderland.

“I found out on Wednesday that Ryan Allsop had unfortunately got injured and it was a no-brainer for me when I was asked to return on loan.

“Playing in front of 30,000 fans was fantastic, but you could hear the Wycombe fans above all the noise that Sunderland were making; it was tremendous support and it was spine-tingling to hear them singing my name again.”
