Newcastle   1 - 1   QPR

Newcastle v QPR

Newcastle 1-1 QPR

Newcastle extended their lead at the top of the Championship to three points courtesy of a draw against QPR.

Ben Watson's 30-yard strike deflected into the net off United's Steven Taylor to give QPR a seventh minute lead.

Shortly after QPR defender Damion Stewart's handball gave the home side a penalty but Danny Guthrie's spot-kick was saved by Radek Cerny.

Substitute Marlon Harewood bundled in United's equaliser following a knock-back from fellow striker Andy Carroll.

It was Harewood's first goal for the Tyneside outfit following his loan move from Aston Villa and earned his new side a point after a tough test by QPR.

Winger Wayne Routledge and midfielder Watson were particularly impressive for the visitors and the latter was rewarded with his opening goal.

Guthrie's penalty miss almost came back to haunt him when Stewart powered a header just wide of the post.

But Carroll drove a 66th-minute free-kick straight at the keeper as the Magpies pressed for a leveller before he helped set up Harewood's goal.

Carroll headed down Danny Simpson's cross for Harewood to stab home at the far post.


Newcastle caretaker-manager Chris Hughton:
"It's a reminder to anybody of the quality of this league.

"You are up against Championship-hardened teams who are used to playing the amount of games we will play.

"If I look at the games we have played so far this season, we have had to fight hard for everything we have got."

QPR boss Jim Magilton:

"A draw is probably a fair result. I am very proud of the players. To a man, they were outstanding.

"I think it's going to be a division where - we have seen results already this year - it's going to be open.

"But if you look at the talent and the ability and the squad-depth of Newcastle, if you finish above them, you will be very close."
