QPR end tour with win

Adel Taarabt's penalty and Bobby Zamora's strike helped QPR come from behind to record a 2-1 friendly win over Persebaya in their final Asia Tour fixture.

The Indonesian side took a surprise early lead through Fernando Soler, who struck from close range in the 17th minute after goalkeeper Rob Green had failed to clear a long ball into the area.

The Rs hit back nine minutes later, however, when Taarabt slotted home from the spot after on-loan Manchester United defender Fabio was felled by two defenders.

In energy-sapping conditions, Zamora had a goal disallowed for offside but the former Fulham striker was not to be denied in the 67th minute, firing in from 12 yards to help Rangers end their tour with a win.
