Wolves 2-0 QPR
Second-half goals from Andrew Keogh and Michael Kightly were enough for Wolves to see off plucky QPR and maintain a Championship play-off position.

After wasting a series of gilt-edged chances Wolves finally scored 12 minutes after the break when Keogh tucked in the rebound from his header.

The hosts doubled their advantage just a minute later when Kightly coolly converted Jay Bothroyd's cross.

Wolves now need to win at Leicester to ensure they make the play-offs.

  • Wolves boss Mick McCarthy on the prospect of playing WBA in the play-offs:
    "We would take that now.

    "I'm sure they would too. They think they can beat us."

    And he added of the scrappy win over QPR: "Nobody said it was going to be easy. It was a Championship game - a bit messy.

    "If we have to grind out victories we will do it."

  • QPR manager John Gregory:
    "The club has had a tired look about it. We need to change some faces. We will do that this week."

    "We didn't see the best of Wolverhampton Wanderers today - they were outstanding last week.

    "In Keogh they have one of the signings of the season. We looked at him but could not compete financially."
