Sheff Utd 2-3 QPR
QPR completed a double over Sheffield United to dent their promotion bid.

Marc Nygaard raced clear to put QPR ahead after only six minutes, but Ade Akinbiyi headed a quick equaliser.

Marc Bircham headed a corner into his own net after 29 minutes, before Paul Jones saved Paul Iffil's penalty after Ian Evatt fouled Chris Morgan.

Morgan deflected Nygaard's header into his own goal after 56 minutes and Paul Furlong's left-foot finish sealed a shock victory with 16 minutes left.

  • Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock:
    "We were well-beaten in the end. You get these disappointments in football but it's how you bounce back.

    "If you look at it in too much detail then we committed suicide, but it's not as bad as that.

    "We've got 10 games to go. We'd have been delighted to be in our position at the start of the season."

  • QPR boss Gary Waddock:
    "Sometimes you need a little bit of luck and we got that.

    "If you come up to Sheffield United you're not going to dominate the game. But we defended well and then had a few chances in the second half.

    "The group of players that are downstairs and were training this week have worked their socks off."
