Vital QPR looks at the Rangers players plying their trade away from Loftus Road this weekend.
As Rangers drew a blank at the Keepmoat Stadium, they only had to look at the Watford scorline to see what was the potentially missing piece of the jigsaw.
Heidar Helguson made it five goals in four games for the Hornets, a club at which he is idolised and revered, and appears to be playing with great freedom and comfort.
He opened the scoring against Scunthorpe United on the 19th minute before doubling the Hornets advantage three minutes later to effectively see the hosts home at Vicarage Road.
His strike partner Danny Graham grabbed the third as Watford moved level with QPR and indeed with a playoff place.
Gary Waddock’s Wycombe Wanderers must have still been reeling from their thrashing at the Galpharm Stadium, but it didn’t show as they picked up one of the surprise results of the day.
Millwall started as overwhelming favourites for the fixture at the Den only for Wanderers, joined by new recruit Gareth Ainsworth to claim a two goal win.
Defender Chris Westwood and striker Kevin Betsy scored the crucial goals as the Chairboys lifted themselves off the foot of the table.
Ainsworth himself played the entire 90 minutes at the Den to thwart former QPR colleague Adam Bolder, who remained on the bench.
Finally Lee Brown started for Salisbury City in their home defeat to Rushden & Diamonds, while Joe Oastler remained sidelined with the remnants of a bug.
Brown started at left-back but could only watch on as the Diamonds ran riot in the final ten minutes. Paul Terry’s strike opened the scoring while inspired substitute Aaron O’Connor bagged a seven minute brace to seal the game.
Darrell Clarke bagged a consolation for Tommy Widdrington’s men who haven’t got too much to worry about with the bottom four all losing.
