Sheffield United 0-3 QPR

This short report comes as we are travelling back down the M1 from Sheffield United having seen Rangers' blow away the Blades with a superb opening 25minutes and put the game to bed in the blink of an eye.
Hogan Ephraim opened the scoring after Adel Taarabt had thread him in with a fantastic through ball and set the little winger clear, Hogan coolly slotted past Simonsen when 1 on 1 with the Blades 'keeper.
Within five minutes it was 2-0. Some good build up play between Taarabt and Hogan saw the latter play a perfectly flighted deep cross for Jamie Mackie to the back post and he was more than happy to nod home from close range and celebrate in front of the travelling support.
Then the dream really did become unreal has Heidar Helguson turned his marker and was brought down by Simonsen and the referee had no option but to point to the spot. After a little bit of arguing between Taarabt and Helguson it was Taarabt that took the ball, placed it on the spot and put the penalty away with such confidence and put Rangers' 3-0 ahead with only 25minutes played!
A slightly more calm second half was to follow and chances were hard to come by but more importantly a clean sheet was kept and another three points were in the bag.

Reports on the way home suggest that Kevin Blackwell has left his post as manager of Sheffield United.

A full report will follow in the next day or two as Lofty returns to the keyboard for the first (of hopefully many) time this season and will fill you in on our adventures over the course of the day.
