QPR   5 - 2   Barnsley

QPR 5-2 Barnsley

QPR 5-2 Barnsley

QPR secured their first home win of the season as they defeated Barnsley.

Akos Buzsaky scored twice with close range and 30-yard efforts to add to Mikele Leigertwood's 25-yard opener as Rangers raced into a three-goal lead.

Barnsley's Stephen Foster nodded in and when Adam Hammill was fouled and Andy Gray netted after his penalty effort was initially saved, it was 3-2.

But Ben Watson and Jay Simpson quashed any hopes of a Barnsley fightback with scrambled efforts for the Londoners.

Leigertwood had given the home side the lead when he came forward from defence to shoot home from distance.

The hosts doubled their advantage when Watson slipped Buzsaky in behind and the Hungary international tucked the ball past David Preece.

Buzsaky add the third five minutes before half-time when he collected the ball from distance and curled his effort into the net.

Barnsley pulled one back at the start of the second half when Foster rose highest to nod Iain Hume's cross past Radek Cerny.

They reduced the deficit still further when Damion Stewart tripped Hammill in the area. Gray's spot-kick was saved by Cerny but the striker tucked the rebound in.

But Rangers regained control and scored again when a Buzsaky cross was headed back across goal by Rowan Vine and Watson's effort was fumbled over the line by Preece.

Rangers made the game safe when Kaspars Gorkss's header caused more mild panic in the Barnsley box and Simpson got the final touch to complete the scoring.


QPR boss Jim Magilton:

"We've raised the bar. I was worried about today because I know Mark Robins is a very good manager and his side have improved under him, so it was always going to be a tricky game for us, especially after all the hype.

"We had to do whatever we could to get three points and some of our play was extremely good.

"It was a bit nervy at times and we afforded them a few too many chances, but all in all I am pleased."

Barnsley manager Mark Robins:

"It was a costly first 10 minutes and we shot ourselves in the foot.

"We allowed them too much room and conceded some very poor goals.

"We can point to the fact it was a new back four but they are decent players.

"We came within a whisker of equalising but then pushed forward and forgot to defend again."
