QPR (0) 1-3 (3) Fulham


Fulham ran amok to leave QPR fans open mouthed at the ease of this win.

No one saw it coming - but plenty saw booing Rs fans leave in their droves at half time with Whites three to the good thanks to goals from Ross McCormack, Moussa Dembele and Tom Cairney.

A late consolation from Tjaronn Chery barely raised a ripple for the home fans still in the ground.

It meant the away team coasted in the second half to only their second double of the season after Rotherham, and ease pressure at the foot of the table on a side headed towards it before this thumping win.

Fulham sensed the space behind the Rangers back four, and time and again the bisecting ball on the diagonal had a willing yellow shirt meeting it.

Early on, both sides gave as good as they got.

But Fulham were rocked when Lasse Christensen, with a litany of injuries last season, limped off barely six minutes into the game to make way for Luke Garbutt.

If anything, the switch to 3-5-2 gave Fulham the impetus, and Jamie O'Hara was through on the left to bring a good save out of Alex Smithies.

The warning signs were there for Rangers - but they didn't heed them. The diagonal pass nearly paid off a couple of times before McCormack scored.

Cairney threaded the ball through the eye of a needle for Mac the knife to run on to and fire first time past Smithies.

It got even better for the away side five minutes later.

Garbutt was given multiple goes to get away a shot on the left. Eventually, O'Hara delivered an inch perfect cross for Dembele to nod down and in with the Rs defence awol.

Yet again 3-0 came as a result of a QPR defence cut asunder.

Dembele was the provider this time sending a low shot against the far post and out to Cairney whose effort was tepid but enough to catch the knee of Grant Hall and in.

Smithies was by far the busier keeper in the second half, but Andy Lonergan earned his win bonus with a terrific close save as James Perch and Dan Burn was a lucky lad to earn only a yellow when he upended Jamie Mackie through on goal.

Chery finally netted with a neat side foot, but this was bitter blow for those in the home end.
