QPR 0-3 Southampton
Grzegorz Rasiak's brace helped Southampton claim an easy win at QPR.

It was QPR's first match since the Ray Jones' death, who would have celebrated his 19th birthday last Tuesday.

Saints dominated throughout and Rasiak climbed highest to head in Youssef Safri's corner at the far post and slotted in his second from close range.

Nathan Dyer, always a threat on the right, crossed for the unmarked Bradley Wright-Phillips to head past Camp after the break to seal the win.

  • QPR captain Adam Bolder on playing after the death of Ray Jones last week:
    "It's been a difficult week and one of the worst games I've played in.

    "But the events are no excuse for our performance. We're still a professional team and we should have done better.

    "We were second in every department. What happened should have spurred us on, but didn't, for whatever reason."

  • Southampton boss George Burley:
    "Without their keeper Lee Camp, and if we hadn't missed so many chances, it could have been 10.

    "I haven't seen one of my teams create so many clear-cut chances in a long time. It is amazing how many we had.

    "We knew it would be emotional with Ray Jones' family there. My job is to entertain the public and we did. The neutral would have enjoyed the match."
