QPR 2-0 Burnley: Austin scores to propel the Hoops out of the drop zone

Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin scored against his old club, as Harry Redknapp’s men earned a vital win in the relegation battle, reports BBC Sport.

The first-half didn’t see any goals, but Burnley looked the most likely, with George Boyd rattling the woodwork with a fierce effort form distance. However, in the second-half the missed opportunity came back to haunt the club, as Charlie Austin, a former Burnley player, teed up Leroy Fer to score Rangers’ opening goal.

Austin then got on the scoresheet himself in the 74th minute to put QPR 2-0 up late in the game. He was sent off for two yellow cards not too long after scoring, but the Hoops held on to earn a vital win, taking them out of the bottom three.
