QPR 2 Sheff Utd 1

Date : Sat 13 Aug 2005 Kick Off : 15:00

Venue : Loftus Road Attendance : 13497

Comp : Coca-Cola Football League Championship Referee : S Tanner

Goals :

Bircham 55

Moore 90

Kabba 94

Rangers have knocked Sheffield United off top spot thanks to goals from Marc Bircham and Stefan Moore.

Rangers took the lead after putting on an admirable display against Neil Warnock's table toppers.

The first half had seen Rangers pile on the pressure and keep it tight at the back and it always looked as though the goal would come.

Finally, Marc Bircham scored his screamer for the season when the ball fell to him outside the area and he unleashed a powerful drive to leave Paddy Kenny rooted to the spot.

Stefan Moore eased the pressure when he netted the second in the last minute and it was a good job too as Steven Kabba grabbed a late, late consolation.

Ian Holloway went with the 'if it's not broke' method and opted to field the same side that took three points from Ipswich on Tuesday night.

And throughout the opening stages, it looked as though this was the correct decision and Rangers took the game to the visitors.

It seems as though the second term in the Championship is teaching Rangers a thing or two and the Superhoops are going into game with more of an attacking way of thinking.

Pocket rocket Tommy Doherty had Loftus Road screaming for a penalty when he was felled in the area with ten minutes gone, but referee Mr Tanner waved play on.

At the back, Rangers looked organised when dealing with the threat of United's front men.

Martin Rowlands then flew down the wing leaving a trail of Blades in his wake and crossed the ball in for Paul Furlong and it was only Neil Shipperley's last minute clearance that prevented Furlong from jabbing it home.

The Blades seemed to be using some heavy handed tactics and it wasn't long before Rangers were clocking up the free kicks just outside the box.

On one such occasion, Rowlands delivered, but Kevin Gallen could only sky the ball over the bar.

Rangers put together their best move of the half so far on 26 minutes when Marcus Bignot threaded the ball through for Ainsworth and the Wild Thing kept hold of the ball in some style after side stepping the United wing back.

Crossing for the awaiting Gallen and Furlong, the ball was just a touch too high and neither could gain any real purchase on it.

Up at the other end of the park, Dan ****tu was on hand to cut out Shipperley's darting run into the box.

Just as he was about to unleash his cross, ****tu was there to slide in and halt the attack.Furlong was on the attack once again

Holloway was forced to make a change six minutes before the break when Tommy Doherty had to retire due to injury and Stefan Moore came on in his place.

There was little action in the final stages of the half, but Rangers were doing more than enough to take the points after the break if such a performance continued.

Furlong wasted no time in going on the attack and headed over practically from the kick off, Rowlands then caused the defence all sorts of problems before Gallen shot wide.

Finally the pressure told and the Blades were cut apart at the back. After a period of pressure in the United 18 yard box, the ball fell to Marc Bircham just outside the area.

In acres of space, Bircham picked his spot and fire the ball past Paddy Kenny who was left helpless in the Blades goal.

After such a performance, the game was certainly worth being won with such a pearler of a goal, but Rangers would have to sustain the pressure for a further half hour.

Stefan Moore then paved the way to goal by robbing the Blades midfield of the ball and making his way towards goal.

Aiming for a long range shot, Moore tested Kenny all the way, but the keeper was equal to his shot and managed to pull off the save, despite fumbling it.

Rangers did not let up on the pressure and substitute Aaron Brown set up Gallen, but the skipper bent his effort the wrong side of the post.

Just as the Rangers fans were getting jittery about the five minutes injury time, Stefan Moore eased their nerves by finishing the game off with Rangers second strike.

Matthew Rose had swung a wayward shot at goal which had ended up at the feet of Moore.

Seizing the opportunity, Moore booted the ball goalwards and again, Kenny failed to move as the ball fizzed past him once more.

Rangers fans were thanking their lucky stars that this had in fact gone in when moments later Kabba stuck the ball in the back of the net, but it was too little too late.

Occean scores his second in the last few minutes to give Odd Grenland 3 pts against Lillestrom.

Final score 3-2, Otto scores twice.

Good to see Occean doing well for Odd after a slow start to the season.

Richard Hastings started and played 90 minutes in Inverness' 1-0 win over Dunfermline. Rhian Dodds came on as a sub at the 81st minute in Kilmarnock's 4-1 win over Motherwell.

Actually Hastings came off in the 25th minute with an unspecified injury.
