QPR extended their lead at the top of the npower Championship as Neil Warnock`s side strolled to a 4-0 home win over Swansea.

The league leaders were hosting one of two early kick-offs and took advantage to open up a temporary six-point gap over Leeds as both sides finished with 10 men.

Former Tottenham playmaker Adel Taarabt was again the star of the show as the Morocco international grabbed a second-half brace to add to goals from Jamie Mackie and Heidar Helguson.

A bad-tempered first half saw two straight red cards. Clint Hill and Alan Tate were the recipients after the latter's foul on Kyle Walker sparked a fracas.

In the other 1pm kick-off, Portsmouth were held to a 1-1 draw by Millwall, with David Nugent equalising Liam Trotter's opener for the Londoners.
