QPR manager Neil Warnock considered fielding a number of the club's youngsters in the 1-0 win over Watford.
But instead he opted to go with a full-strength side out of respect to the relegation scrap below - not least the struggles of his old club Crystal Palace.
Akos Buzsaky fired the winner from the penalty spot to deny Watford the win they needed to secure their survival.
"I asked my lads to be professional and they were," said Warnock.
"I'd like to have played one or two of the kids to be honest. On Sunday morning I was going to, but over 24 hours I decided it's the wrong time to be accused of messing with other clubs' futures."
