Mark Hughes endured an unhappy return to Ewood Park as he saw his Rs side capitulate to a lacklustre 3-2 loss against Blackburn. His side were made to pay for a flat and uninspiring first period as Rovers took full advantage, soaring into a 3-0 lead at half time. The introduction of Jamie Mackie in the second half gave QPR some impetus, but two late goals from the frontman was far from enough to rescue anything from a game that was over at half time.
Yakubu fired his side into an early lead in the 15th minute as the Nigerian capitalised on some poor QPR defending to fire past a flat footed Paddy Kenny. The lead was quickly doubled as Steven Nzonzi broke free from midfield and gratefully received a return pass from winger Junior Hoilett to tuck in a superb finish.
QPR appeared to settle down and were looking the better side going into half time, but having only mustered up jaded half-chances, any chances of an unexpected come back were dealt a serious blow as a shot from Hoilett just before the end of the first half, clipped Nedum Onuoha and somehow squeezed under the bar and into the net.
QPR started the second period more brightly, no doubt with Mark Hughes` stern half-time words ringing in their ears, and started to create better opportunities. Jamie Mackie came on for Akos Buzsaky and managed to pull a goal back on the 71st minute after Taiwo set up the attacker after some indecisive defending from ex-Ranger Bradley Orr.
Blackburn were content to sit on their two goal advantage and despite enjoying the majority of possession QPR couldn`t break through the Rovers defence. A late Mackie cracker was nothing more than a consolation as QPR`s fellow relegation rivals held out for an invaluable three points.
QPR`s 14th defeat of the season sees them still hanging precariously just above the relegation zone on goal difference, and with losing now a seemingly frustrating habit, the prospect of relegation looms large over Mark Hughes and his QPR side. Big problems for big spending Rangers.
