Derby   2 - 4   QPR

QPR scored four for the third consecutive match as they stormed back from 2-0 down to win at Pride Park.

Paul Dickov's close-range finish and Robbie Savage's fine free-kick put Derby in the driving seat before Adel Taarabt's free-kick made it 2-1.

Gavin Mahon then fired home the equaliser from close range and Jay Simpson's cool finish put QPR ahead.

And after Dean Moxey brought down Wayne Routledge, Akos Buzsaky netted from the penalty spot to seal Rangers' victory.

The result lifted Rangers to sixth place in the Championship table, four points behind leaders Newcastle, though they have a game in hand over Chris Hughton's side.

Such an impressive win seemed unlikely as Rangers started this game sluggishly and were punished for an early defensive lapse.

606: DEBATE

Dickov collected Savage's quickly taken free-kick and slotted past goalkeeper Radek Cerny to put the Rams ahead.

Worse followed for Rangers when Savage doubled Derby's lead with a well-struck free-kick that went in off the post.

Cerny kept out a header from Rob Hulse, who also headed over from Lee Croft's cross as Rangers continued to look vulnerable at the back.

But the R's were always dangerous and had gone close through Buzsaky and Alejandro Faurlin before Taarabt reduced the deficit.

Taarabt, on loan from Tottenham, found the bottom corner of the net with a curling free-kick five minutes before the interval.

Early in the second half, Rangers were level as Routledge guided Taarabt's left-wing delivery towards an unmarked Mahon, who scored from eight yards out.

Jim Magilton's team maintained the pressure and went ahead through Simpson's sixth goal since joining them on loan from Arsenal.

Simpson kept his composure and steered the ball beyond keeper Stephen Bywater after Paul Connolly, Shaun Barker and Frederik Stoor all failed to cut out Buzsaky's pass.

Derby pushed forward in search of an equaliser and were caught on the counter-attack when Mikele Leigertwood's cross-field ball found Taarabt, who was denied by a good stop from Bywater.

Rangers survived late scares when Kaspars Gorkss had to head clear after Cerny fumbled Jake Livermore's cross, and when Hulse blazed wide after a defensive mix-up.

However, they always looked likely to score again and almost got a fourth through Patrick Agyemang, who was unable to hit the target following a low cross from fellow substitute Rowan Vine.

That fourth goal finally came when Routledge went down in the penalty area, and Buzsaky stepped up to score his third goal in as many matches.


Derby manager Nigel Clough:
"There were two critical things; conceding just before half-time and then again in the 46th minute.

"When we were 2-0 up it was important that we got to half-time and then kept it tight for 10 minutes in the second half, but we could do neither.

"I thought QPR played extremely well. You saw a side full of confidence, who have scored four goals in each of their last three games, and everyone wanted the ball."

QPR manager Jim Magilton:

"Our progression has been steady. We've skipped under the radar, which is fabulous.

"I've no idea where this form will take us. I'm very much a manager that deals with it game by game, but I'm delighted with the direction we're heading in.

"We're a very grounded group and we won't be letting a result like this get us too carried away."
