Hoops move clear

18 September 2010 07:00
QPR continued their unbeaten start to the season and moved five points clear at the top of the npower Championship after Jamie Mackie's double gave them a 2-0 win over Leicester. Neil Warnock's side have been flying and took the lead after only 12 minutes when Adel Taarabt's cross picked out Mackie and he sent a bullet header past Carl Ikeme. Leicester thought they should have had a penalty in the second half when Steven Howard appeared to be elbowed but nothing was given - much to the fury of the Foxes players and fans alike. The home side continued to press for an equaliser but QPR wrapped up victory with four minutes remaining when Mackie beat the challenge of Michael Morrison before firing in his eighth goal of the season.
