QPR staged a stunning second-half fightback to ease their relegation fears as they beat Leicester City 1-3 at the Walkers Stadium.

Listen to post-match interviews with City Manager Rob Kelly and Darren Kenton and Jon Barber's post-match summary. Plus read the BBC Sport report…

Leicester had completely dominated the opening 45 minutes but were frustrated by QPR goalkeeper Lee Camp, who kept his side on terms at the break with a series of fine saves.

Jason Jarrett, Nils-Eric Johansson, Alan Maybury and Stephen Hughes all had a chance at goal, but none could find the back of the net.

Having been under the cost for much of the first half though, it was QPR who took the lead just two minutes after the restart.

QPR's Marc Nygaard found himself completely unmarked in the penalty area and his header teed up Inigo Idiakez who nodded home from close range to lift some of the pressure on his boss John Gregory.

And it got even better for Gregory just a couple of minutes later as his side doubled their advantage from the spot.

Furlong was fouled in the area by Shaun Newton and Nygaard drove home the penalty past Leicester goalkeeper Paul Henderson to put his side firmly in the driving seat.

"When we win, we all win together, and when we get beat, we get beat together, and when we play as poorly as that, that's all of us."
Rob Kelly, City Manager

Nygaard grabbed his second after 68 minutes with a superb 30-yard volley to wrap up the points before Leicester grabbed a last-gasp consolation when Hume scored from the penalty spot after Cullip had been penalised for handball.

City Manager Rob Kelly says he won't assign blame to any individual player for the poor result:

"I don't think there was any one individual, we let ourselves down. In the end, I put the players out there, I picked the team, I did the work - so it's a group thing.

"When we win, we all win together, and when we get beat, we get beat together, and when we play as poorly as that, that's all of us.

"We've let ourselves down and we've let our supporters down."
