A brace from Ilias Chair earned QPR all three points over Birmingham City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium last night.
After a bright start from the visitors, The R’s took control of the game, with Chair opening the scoring with a deflected effort in the 35th minute.
20 minutes into the second half, and Chair doubled his side’s advantage after he had latched onto a through ball, before expertly slotting past Matija Sarkic in the Blues net.
Victory for The R’s has taken them back to within a point of the Championship play-offs, following three straight 2-1 defeats.
Quiz: Have QPR ever been involved in these 18 scenarios?
Mark Warburton’s side were unbeaten in their first six second-tier matches this campaign and will be hoping to break into the much-desired top-six as the season progresses.
Chair might have made the headlines with his two goals, but Charlie Austin returned to the starting line up, putting in a very strong performance.

The forward’s physicality, coupled with his fully-functional working relationship with Lyndon Dykes, caused chaos for the Birmingham defence.
The 32-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan from West Brom, made his move to West London permanent this summer.
Here, we take a look at how some QPR fans reacted on Twitter to Austin’s performance…
