QPR shocks West Brom with 4-1 away win
WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) — Queens Park Rangers grabbed a Premier League lifeline with a shock 4-1 win at 10-man West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, only its second away victory of the season.
Eduardo Vargas, Charlie Austin and Bobby Zamora put QPR 3-0 up at halftime. In a potential goal of the season, Zamora chased a long ball before sensationally lobbing Baggies goalkeeper Boaz Myhill with the outside of his foot.
Victor Anichebe pulled one back after the break before Joey Barton’s stoppage-time strike.
West Brom substitute Youssouf Mulumbu was sent off on 84 minutes after an aerial challenge with Barton.
QPR moved a point from safety and go to fellow strugglers Aston Villa on Tuesday after ending a five-game losing run. West Brom is eight points above third-bottom QPR.
