Leicester 1-3 QPR
QPR staged a second-half recovery to ease their relegation fears with crucial victory at Leicester.

After being under the cosh for the first half, Marc Nygaard set up Inigo Idiakez to nod Rangers ahead.

Nygaard's penalty, after Paul Furlong was fouled by Shaun Newton, doubled QPR's lead and the Dane sealed the points with a 30-yard volley.

Ian Hume scored a late consolation for Leicester from the spot after Danny Cullip had been penalised for handball.

  • Leicester boss Rob Kelly:
    "There was a lack of concentration in the second half. In the first half I thought we were dominant but you need to be scoring in those spells.

    "It's now a long two weeks until our next game when we really need one tomorrow but we haven't and will just have to work hard to put it right.

    "We've still got a lot of work to do this season. Our target has to be that we get over that 50-points barrier."

  • QPR manager John Gregory:
    "In the first half we were horrendous. We were tired and lethargic and allowed Leicester to dominate the early exchanges.

    "I would have expected Leicester to do much better with all the possession they had but they never really punished us.

    "It was a fine win in the end and we now have three matches at home. If we manage to win those it might just get us across the finishing line."
