Wolves 3-1 QPR
Wolves striker Carl Cort struck a superb hat-trick as his side moved sixth in the league by seeing off QPR.

Cort opened the scoring early on with a cool volley after good work from Leon Clarke and the lively Rohan Ricketts.

But Rangers levelled moments later, Stefan Moore's left-wing cross headed down and into the net by Kevin Gallen.

Cort put Wolves ahead with a tap-in from Kenny Miller's fine centre and completed his treble in stoppage time by slotting the ball past Simon Royce.

  • Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle:
    "I'm delighted for Carl because he's a good lad to work with and maybe there's a hat-trick for Kenny Miller just round the corner as well.

    "I thought Kenny was magnificent and Rohan Ricketts had his best game for the club.

    "I've got to be pleased, although we could have had five quite easily."

  • QPR manager Ian Holloway:
    "We have also conceded nine goals in three away games and we just let Cort run through us at times.

    "I'm proud with how far we have come but it doesn't look quite far enough at the moment.

    "We look a little bit short. We have had injuries and they may have taken their toll."
