QPR 0-2 Derby

Derby earned their first away success of the season thanks to goals from Martin Albrechtsen and Emanuel Villa as they ended QPR's 100% home record.

The home side almost opened the scoring through Dexter Blackstock but were denied by a save from Roy Carroll.

QPR's Emmanuel Ledesma saw his deflected strike hit the post.

Derby took the lead 11 minutes from time when Albrechtsen rifled home a clinical left-foot finish before Villa headed in Steven Davies' cross.

QPR boss Iain Dowie:
"When we did pass the ball well we created the best chance of the game and had that gone in, the game could have been different.

"This result hasn't changed the way I feel. I still believe we've got a good bunch of lads here and they can bounce back.

"Sometimes you just have to take things on the chin. Derby beat us today, so good luck to them."

Derby manager Paul Jewell:
"We're getting better and you could see that today. I thought we dominated the game from start to finish.

"Last season took its toll on everybody and the cloud of relegation from the Premiership hung over us for a long time. We didn't have confidence and the only way you can get it back is by winning games.

"Our supporters have been brilliant. They've travelled the length and breadth of the country and seen us get beaten - sometimes well beaten - but today they've finally seen us win."
