QPR   0 - 1   Scunthorpe

QPR 0-1 Scunthorpe

QPR 0-1 Scunthorpe

Scunthorpe midfielder Garry Thompson grabbed a late goal to earn his side a win over struggling QPR.

Thompson latched on to a right-wing cross from Gary Hooper and controlled the ball before slotting past QPR keeper Carl Ikeme from six yards.

The goal saw the visitors punish QPR for an earlier miss when Kaspars Gorkss headed over from close range.

Jay Simpson almost equalised for QPR only to head wide as the home side went a sixth game without a win.


QPR caretaker boss Mick Harford:

"I'm very disappointed with the result, but there were positives to take from it.

"I asked for an effort from the players and I certainly got that.

"If we play like that in every game between now and the end of the season then we'll be fine.

"The last couple of results have not helped my cause, but they have made me stronger and more determined to improve the team."

Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins:

"It's a great victory for us and another excellent three points away from home.

"It was our third match in six days, and credit to the players for showing great professionalism. They got themselves re-hydrated and have shown a great attitude.

"We're hard-working and are endeavouring to do the best we can.

"We've got a close-knit group of players who work very hard for each other and I can't underline enough how proud I am of them."
