QPR   2 - 0   Plymouth

QPR 2-0 Plymouth (UK only)

QPR 2-0 Plymouth

Adel Taarabt inspired QPR to a second successive victory under new boss Neil Warnock with a 2-0 win over Plymouth.

The 20-year-old hit the side netting after evading three Argyle defenders before scoring a penalty after Kari Arnason had pulled down Tamas Priskin.

After the break Taarabt supplied the free-kick for Damion Stewart to double the lead with a close-range header.

Alejandro Faurlin blasted over and Jay Simpson shot wide as Rangers kept their first clean sheet in 25 games.


QPR manager Neil Warnock
"Everyone knows this team has under-achieved but you don't win anything on ability alone. What is under the shirt counts as well.

"It was a different game from Saturday, with all the razzmatazz of my first game (against West Brom)."

"My centre-halves and goalkeeper were magnificent but you have to defend from the front and I thought we did that."

Plymouth manager Paul Mariner
"(Plymouth goalkeeper) David Stockdale hasn't had a save to make and yet we've lost the game 2-0.

"It was a poor penalty to give away and then we let in another, in our position we can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot like that.

"Neil (Warnock) has done a great job but remember they put this squad together with quite a lot of money."
