Blackburn edge past QPR

Published Add your comment

Blackburn survived a second-half fightback from fellow strugglers QPR to secure three precious points in a 3-2 victory at Ewood Park.

Striker Ayegbeni Yakubu, back from suspension, opened the scoring in the 15th minute with a shot from the edge of the penalty area, Steven Nzonzi extended the home side's lead in the 23rd by converting Junior Hoilett's pass and Nedum Onuoha's own goal then made it 3-0 just prior to the interval.

Substitute Jamie Mackie netted in 71st minute and again in the 90th to set up a nervy finale, but Blackburn held on for the victory, bouncing back from last week's humiliating 7-1 defeat at Arsenal.
