Blades beat QPR to keep grip on play-off spot


Sheffield United peppered the QPR goal before Iliman Ndiaye’s equaliser

A roaring second-half performance saw Sheffield United come from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers and ensure their bid for a Championship play-off place will remain in their hands going into the final day.

In Mark Warburton’s last home game as R’s boss, his side led after a low-key first half through Charlie Austin’s header from Albert Adomah’s cross from deep.

However, the sixth-placed Blades came out re-energised after the break, going close on several occasions before Iliman Ndiaye eventually levelled from close-range following some pinball action in the QPR box.

The visitors continued to dominate and deservedly led when former R’s defender Jack Robinson powered home a header from a clever free-kick routine, with substitute Conor Hourihane volleying in a third in stoppage time.
