QPR 1-2 Stoke
Goals from Carl Hoefkens and Hannes Sigurdsson ensured that Stoke came away with victory from their battle at QPR.

Marc Nygaard put Rangers in front early in the game when he fired the ball past keeper Steve Simonsen from 10 yards.

Hoefkens equalised with a penalty after Darel Russell was fouled by Danny Shittu, before Sigurdsson's winner.

Gareth Ainsworth had a penalty saved by Simonsen with the scores at 1-0, after Dave Brammer fouled Lee Cook inside the 18-yard area.

  • Stoke assistant boss Gerry Taggart:
    "We didn't start that brightly and got an early kick up the backside.

    "But we had a chat at half-time and changed it around and it worked.

    "We have got nothing to play for but it's still about getting as many wins as possible."

  • QPR caretaker manager Gary Waddock:
    "We could have been at 2-0. The penalty changed the game.

    "It's deflating, but we really need to be more clinical in front of goal. We need to take our chances."
