Goals from Abel Taarabt and debutant Wayne Routledge gave QPR a win after Marlon King had put the Sky Blues ahead and QPR boss Neil Warnock told the Press Association after the game: "Either goal was fit to win any game.
"And you won't see a better ball for the second anywhere in the world.
"There's baggage with Taarabt and he'll make some mistakes. He was bombed out by the previous two managers here and rightly so.
"But it couldn't be better for me at this time of my career and I think I'm the right manager for him.
"My son bought his mate today just to see Taarabt. He thinks he should be playing for Real Madrid. And he could, but first of all he's got to help me."
