QPR 3-2 Blackpool

Akos Buzsaky's sublime strike set QPR on their way to a victory which keeps their play-off hopes alive.

Under the gaze of the King of Ghana and Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon, Buzsaky put QPR ahead after only 11 minutes with a deft volley.

Rowan Vine made it 2-0 before half-time with a low, angled drive before Patrick Agyemang set up Martin Rowlands.

Ben Burgess pulled one back with a low effort and Stephen McPhee's close-range finish ensured a jittery finish.

  • QPR boss Luigi De Canio:
    "Akos is a player of immense quality. He is a good player - universal.

    "But I'm quite upset because what should have been a triumph turned into a stuttered win.

    "I told the players this slows down the growth of our confidence."

  • Blackpool boss Simon Grayson:
    "When you give any team a two-goal start you are up against it.

    "But at half-time we said if we could get the next goal we'd be right back in it, but unfortunately we didn't.

    "Individual errors cost you at any level and that is what happened. But I'm pleased with the attitude and the character of the players."
