QPR 2-3 Leicester
Stephen Hughes struck a late winner to hand managerless Leicester three points in their fight against relegation.

Gareth Ainsworth and Matty Fryatt's first half goals cancelled each other out before the game exploded into life in the second 45 minutes.

Dan Shittu's 82nd-minute equaliser looked to have earned QPR a point after Richard Stearman put Leicester 2-1 up.

But Hughes' 88th-minute effort gave caretaker-boss Rob Kelly victory in his first Championship match in charge.

  • QPR manager Ian Holloway:
    "It's hard to express just how disappointed I am.

    "Some individual performances were unacceptable. That is the worst I have seen a lot of my players play for my club - it was a terrible night.

    "The back line were shocking. I stuck with them after Luton and they have done well for me, but that was awful. I've never seen so many errors."

  • Leicester's caretaker manager Rob Kelly:
    "We let the players make their own decisions and take responsibility for their actions.

    "We felt they were going into their shell a little. The pressure has been building so we eased off them."
