Match Preview

Smith ready for Hoops QPR will have Tommy Smith available for the visit of Middlesbrough but fellow new boy Rob Hulse will have to wait for his debut. Smith's deadline-day move from Portsmouth was this week rejected by the Football League but the two clubs have instead arranged a loan switch. Fellow striker Hulse, another deadline-day arrival from Derby, is still carrying an Achilles injury and will not be ready for a couple of weeks. Skipper Fitz Hall is fit after a hamstring injury and will challenge Kaspars Gorkss, who scored for Latvia in midweek, and Matt Connolly for a place at centre-half. Club captain Martin Rowlands played his third reserve match this week but will not be rushed back after 11 months out with a cruciate injury and fellow midfielder Lee Cook is still missing with knee trouble. Middlesbrough captain Gary O`Neil could make his return. O`Neil has made just one appearance this season as he has been dogged by a troublesome knee injury but has trained all week after an injection. Manager Gordon Strachan is waiting on several of his Scotland internationals. Midfielder Barry Robson and striker Kris Boyd picked up knocks in the 2-1 win at home to Liechtenstein but winning goalscorer Stephen McManus is fine. Tarmo Kink complained of a knee injury while on international duty with Estonia and could be a doubt but Mickael Tavares may make his debut after signing on transfer deadline day. Andrew Taylor and Jonathan Grounds left the club on deadline day so will not feature.

Match Report

Rangers on the run QPR's second-half onslaught kept them on top of the npower Championship as Middlesbrough slipped further behind the early pace setters after losing 3-0. Neil Warnock's half-time team talk did the trick as Rangers tore out of the blocks after the break to pile the pressure on Boro manager Gordon Strachan. Heidar Helguson got the ball rolling, literally, when he coolly stroked home a 49th-minute penalty. Hogan Ephraim made it two four minutes later and Jamie Mackie buried his fourth goal of the season to seal an emphatic win. Rangers have now hit nine goals without reply at home while Boro, the pre-season promotion favourites, remain winless on the road. Strachan handed a debut to on loan Hamburg midfielder Mickael Tavares, and gave him the unenviable task of keeping an eye on Rangers playmaker Adel Taarabt. But the Senegal man was nowhere to be seen when Taarabt, the player of the month for August, put in another fine display. Taarabt fired in an early shot which Jason Steele got down well to and then tried his luck from 25 yards, only to curl his shot over the top. Steele was back in action midway through the first half, twice denying Ephraim within the space of a minute. Seconds later Taarabt was teed up by Mackie but dragged his 18-yard shot inches wide. Boro's only sights of goal in the opening stages were from long range, with Scott McDonald firing wide and Paddy Kenny saving from Tarmo Kink. But they should have gone ahead just after the half hour when Barry Robson's corner landed at the feet of Kris Boyd. However, the former Rangers striker dragged his shot wide from all of six yards out. Warnock was incensed when Helguson was sent sprawling in the area by Robson and referee Mick Russell waved away their penalty claims. But when the same pair tangled in the opposite area just after the interval, Russell pointed to the spot and Helguson coolly sent Steele the wrong way. Four minutes later Rangers went two up when Taarabt floated a curling cross into the area and Ephraim was on hand to guide the ball past Steele and into the net. Mackie killed off Boro on the hour when he pounced from close range after Kaspars Gorkss' shot was blocked. Boro's day could have got even worse, with Helguson volleying wide and Ephraim crashing a shot onto the crossbar.
