QPR Vs. Blackburn, 2012 Premier League: Hosts Melt Down As Blackburn Get Win

Mark Hughes's Queens Park Rangers revolution suffered a major blow as Blackburn Rover ran rampant at Loftus Road. The first half saw a flurry of goals, all of which were from the visitors. Not fifteen minutes had gone by before dangerman Yakubu had latched onto a Steven Nzonzi flick and blasted past Paddy Kenny, and then Nzonzi managed a goal himself after being set up by Junior Hoilett. QPR's misery was compounded when new signing Nedum Onuoha deflected Hoilett's shot in to make it 3-0 before the interval.

There was time for a brief renaissance in the second half, with Jamie Mackie scoring to bring them back into the game with twenty minutes gone, but ultimately the hosts left things simply too late and a 90th minute goal just made the win a little less emphatic. The scoreline flattered QPR - Blackburn could have had four or five easily, and Steve Kean will be thrilled by the performance as much as the three points.
