Scunthorpe 4-1 QPR
AN EARLY headed goal from Rob Hulse, from a Wayne Routledge cross, proved to be a false dawn as Rangers folded alarmingly at Glanford Park.
A seventh minute header from the striker (pictured), who has barely featured in recent months, only served to sting the relegation-threatened hosts into action.
Joe Garner scored with a header and a neat frinish either side of half time and a superb long range effort from Michael O'Connor put the Iron firmly in control. Mark Duffy added a fourth late on.
"It was one of those days that sometimes happens in football," said boss Neil Warnock.
"It was a game that we could and should have won. We were much the better team for the first half.
"We had the chances but we failed to take them. We have got the best defensive record in the Championship this season and one of the best I think in the whole of the Football League.
"But we didn't look like that today. I have no complaints about the result, we got what we deserved. But we've got to look ahead, we've got another game coming up on Tuesday [at Barnsley] and I already know the team that I'll be picking for that."
