Taarabt sends Rangers clear

27 November 2010 06:00
Adel Taarabt was once again QPR's match-winner as Neil Warnock's side moved five points clear at the top of the npower Championship with a 2-1 win over Cardiff. The mercurial Moroccan showed why he is regarded as one of the best players in the Championship with an another inspirational display, capped with a second-half winner against second-placed Cardiff. Craig Bellamy's first goal in seven games put the the Bluebirds in front in the first half at Loftus Road, but Kaspars Gorkss equalised soon after and former Spurs midfielder Taarabt struck in the second half to give Rangers a deserved victory. The Hoops are still unbeaten in the Championship and look destined for a long-awaited return to the top flight, while stuttering Cardiff have now lost their last two matches. Cardiff almost equalised after 71 minutes when Jason Koumas cut into the box but Kenny did well to keep out the on-loan midfielder's right-foot finish. Seyi Olofinjana could have snatched a point right at the death, but he headed straight at Kenny as Cardiff slipped up once again.
