Queens Park Rangers 3-2 Leicester City: Austin scores as the Hoops emerge victorious in five-goal thriller at Loftus Road

There were goals galore between the two newly-promoted sides in the Premier League this afternoon, with Queens Park Rangers wining their relegation six-pointer against Leicester City, reports BBC Sport.

The visitors took the lead minutes into the game through Esteban Cambiasso. The Argentine midfielder scored from the edge of the area to score Leicester’s first goal in six games.

QPR pegged their way back in the game, with Leicester defender Wes Morgan scoring an own goal in the 37th minute. Harry Redknapp’s side then took the lead through Leroy Fer right on the cusp of half-time to go into the break with a lead.

But Leicester weren’t to be denied. Jeffrey Schlupp levelled the game in the second-half to set up a rousing finale, but Charlie Austin won the game for Rangers with a 73rd minute goal.

The Foxes find themselves bottom of the table, while QPR are level on points with 17th place.
