QPR 2-0 Bolton: Joel Lynch and Matt Smith goals give QPR com


Wanderers right-back Mark Little was harshly shown a straight red card for a challenge on Massimo Luongo near the left-hand touchline four minutes into the second half.

The visitors defended resolutely but were undone when Smith met Luke Freeman's left-wing free-kick with a far-post header and Lynch applied the finishing touch from a yard out.

Smith sealed Rangers' win after being found by a right-wing cross from substitute Paul Smyth.

It took QPR 11 points clear of the drop zone, while Bolton remain in the thick of the battle against relegation and have now lost six of their last seven away matches in the Sky Bet Championship.

Rangers were on top for much of the game, although keeper Alex Smithies produced a superb save to prevent them going behind early on when he kept out Derik Osede's header from Josh Vela's right-wing corner.

Rangers responded after the early scare and went close to scoring when Smith's header from Jake Bidwell's cross was pushed away by Alnwick. sb0bet

Reece Burke then turned the ball into his own net after Conor Washington and Smith had both failed to connect with Pawel Wszolek's low cross, but the on-loan defender's blushes were spared by an offside flag.

Smithies was called into action a couple of minutes into the second half, stopping David Wheater's far-post header from Sammy Ameobi's free-kick.

Wanderers were then put under sustained pressure, with Alnwick tipping over a shot from Freeman and Smith heading over before the deadlock was eventually broken.
