Queens Park Rangers drew 1-1 with Reading at Loftus Road yesterday.
Petrasso was introduced as a late substitute by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, with the young midfielder replacing Matt Phillips in the 77th minute.
The Canadian midfielder has only made seven appearances this season, but his showing in the final few minutes offered some hope for the future.
Petrasso looked lively after being introduced, and QPR fans have called for him to be involved again before the end of the season.
Personally think that Kpekawa has a big future at the club, the only youngster, bar Petrasso maybe, who has the potential to make it #QPR— Harvey Stevens (@HarveyStevens_) April 23, 2016
@bexhoops I would start Petrasso! He looked lively today. One of few positives.— Owen (@QPRFORLIFE) April 23, 2016
@Mattwinton1 Smithies looks better than Ingram, but he did alright Kpekawa did well, Petrasso pacey and willing - quite like him.— James Evans (@Jimeevans) April 23, 2016
Good to see Ingram, Gladwin, Kpekawa and Petrasso get some more minutes today though #QPR— James Evans (@Jimeevans) April 23, 2016
Amazing how Phillips hasn't been dropped. Lazy, gutless, arrogant player. Get rid ASAP. Petrasso looked far more interested, start him #QPR— Michael (@MichaelHi92) April 23, 2016
Petrasso managed to beat a man and get a cross in, what sorcery is this.— Vital QPR (@VitalQPR) April 23, 2016
Why is JFH so scared to start Petrasso? we have nothing to play for & he would do no worse than Phillips— ️ (@Adam_OC1) April 23, 2016
QPR’s draw with Reading means that they are now winless in their last three matches, with their place in mid-table now confirmed.
Rangers had taken the lead against the Royals through Grant Hall, but they were pegged back when Deniss Rakels struck for Brian McDermott’s side.
QPR are next in action against league leaders Burnley in two Mondays’ time, and it remains to be seen whether Petrasso will be selected again.
