Junior Hoilett scored his third goal in six games to open the scoring for QPR in their win at Rotherham

Second-half goals from Junior Hoilett, Matt Phillips and Sebastian Polter were enough to secure Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink a first win as QPR manager.

Hoilett’s run for the opener showed just what he can produce when he’s on his game. Hoilett broke from deep, skipped two tackles, and as he was upended in the box got a foot around the ball and sent it into the bottom corner. Things got even better for Hasselbaink’s men two minutes later, with the ball breaking to Matt Phillips in the area, with the sought-after winger making no mistake inside the penalty area, smashing the ball past Lee Camp to make it 2-0. Fer went close to making it three on 74 minutes, with his right-footed curled effort going agonisingly wide of Camp’s far post. Redfearn’s men battled bravely to get back into the game but to no avail, with Polter adding a third in injury-time – his third goal in four games – as QPR made it 3-0 and ensured they’d be bringing home the  three points back to west London
