QPR manager Neil Warnock was delighted after his side's 3-1 win over Reading despite seeing Bradley Orr sent off.

Influential midfielder Adel Taarabt opened the scoring from the penalty spot after he was fouled in the area by Matt Mills and Alejandro Faurlin doubled QPR's advantage before Shane Long pulled one back for the Royals. Tommy Smith sealed the win mid-way through the second-half to move Rangers back up to the top of the Championship.

Warnock said: "I could see why the referee sent Orr off, but when you see it in slow motion it looks harsh. I don't think he (Orr) meant it. But, if anything, it galvanised us."

He added: "We said at half-time that we didn't want to sit back. We wanted to go and attack and have a go at them. And I don't think there can be any complaints about the result, because with 10 men we were superb.

"Taarabt is such a likeable rogue. I never thought someone like him could be a Neil Warnock player, but I love him.

"He's a talisman for us and when he's at his best, he's very difficult for other teams to handle."
