England bowler is in attendance as Chelsea are 2-1 winners against QPR
Stuart Broad has plenty of spare time with the cricket season finished, and the England bowler spent his Saturday afternoon watching Chelsea beat Queens Park Rangers.
The three-times Ashes winner was in attendance as the Premier League leaders edged to a 2-1 victory over Harry Redknapp’s men at Stamford Bridge.
And Broad must have been impressed by the spin that Oscar generated on his right-footed effort to give Chelsea a lead on the half-hour mark.
QPR striker Charlie Austin scored his third goal of the week to leave the promoted side on the brink of a great point at the pace-setters.
However, Belgium international Eden Hazard dispatched a 75th-minute penalty after the 23-year-old Chelsea forward had been fouled by Eduardo Vargas.
While Broad may be a self-professed Nottingham Forest supporter, the England bowler appeared to thoroughly enjoy his Stamford Bridge experience.
“Loved my first trip to Stamford Bridge thanks for the support with @thebroadappeal @adidasuk great hospitality!” Broad wrote on Instagram.
Broad along with his father Chris and sister Gemma have set up The Broad Appeal in aid of motor neurone disease following the death of their wife and mother Miche in 2010.
