QPR run riot at Wolves
QPR's new-look team put in an impressive display as they ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Wolves at Molineux.
Joey Barton scored his first goal for the Hoops in the eighth minute when he converted a cross from Shaun Wright-Phillips, and it was 2-0 in the 10th thanks to Alejandro Faurlin's strike as Wanderers were made to pay for slack defending.
The visitors added a deserved third with three minutes of normal time remaining, substitute DJ Campbell opening his own account for the club by sliding in Armand Traore's pass.
QPR looked lively from the outset and Wayne Hennessey had to pull off a superb diving save in the opening seconds to tip Shaun Derry's header over the crossbar.
The pressure did not let up and the visitors took an early lead when Wright-Phillips cut a bouncing ball back to new Rs skipper Barton, who slotted past Hennessey as the Wolves defence stood still.
Two minutes later, QPR doubled their advantage as Faurlin chested down a failed clearance on the edge of the box and rifled into the net.
The shell-shocked hosts looked to make a swift response and Karl Henry drove an effort towards Paddy Kenny's goal that clipped the outside of the post.
But the away side were soon in the ascendancy again, Matt Jarvis clearing Anton Ferdinand's header off the line.
QPR's play had warranted another goal and Wright-Phillips almost delivered it in the 78th minute, only to see his effort come back off the post.
The visitors were not to be denied, though, and Campbell was teed up by Traore to make it 3-0 in the 87th minute.
