Leicester   0 - 2   QPR


Leicester 0-2 QPR

Leicester 0-2 QPR

QPR extended their lead at the top of the Championship to five points as in-form Jamie Mackie scored twice to give his side victory over Leicester.

Mackie, who has now scored eight goals in seven Championship fixtures, put his side in front early on with a header from Adel Taarabt's cross.

Leicester had a second-half penalty appeal turned down after Steven Howard appeared to be elbowed.

Mackie secured the points with a close-range strike in the closing minutes.

The result preserves Rangers' unbeaten record, with Neil Warnock's team having won six and drawn one of their seven Championship games.

The visiting team signalled their intent with an early Taarabt strike that Carl Ikeme saved.

But after Mackie's 12th-minute opener the Foxes created a series of chances as they pushed for an equaliser.

Richie Wellens shot over and had a shot blocked, while Marytyn Waghorn missed with a 20-yard free-kick as Leicester started to take charge.

Matt Fryatt smashed narrowly over the crossbar after the restart and later saw a strike saved by Paddy Kenny.

The Foxes' penalty appeal was turned down despite the incident leaving Howard with a bloody nose, while Kenny once again came to QPR's rescue to keep out a strike from Paul Gallagher.

But Rangers struck the decisive second when Mackie eluded Michael Morrison before finishing off a swift break.
