SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 3 QPR 0

An irresistible Sheffield Wednesday knocked another nail into QPR's automatic promotion coffin with a comfortable 3-0 Sky Bet Championship victory at Hillsborough.

Harry Redknapp's men suffered their fifth defeat in the last eight games to leave them 10 points adrift of second placed Burnley with 10 games to go - and destined to settle for a play-off place.

This miserable loss did not come without controversy, though, as Rangers were reduced to 10 men in the 35th minute when Richard Dunne fouled Leon Best. The contact was minimal and Best was unlikely to have control of the ball had he stayed on his feet, but the former Man City defender had to walk.

Chris Maguire converted the penalty and from then on it was all Wednesday, who under Stuart Gray are a team full of attacking intent and one undoubtedly on the up.

Best, who cleverly played for a foul in the penalty incident, provided a second six minutes after the restart with a fine finish after twisting and turning in the box and Lewis Buxton made it three from a corner in the 71st minute.

Maghoma adds to Owl's injury woes

Maghoma joins an extensive injury list at Hillsborough, while the loan spells of Sam Hutchinson, Leon Best, Gary Gardner and Adedeji Oshilaja all expired after the game.

Boss Stuart Gray is hoping to extend some of the deals in time for their inclusion and was boosted by the return of defender Lewis Buxton and midfielder David Prutton.

On Wickham. "We're disappointed because we know what Connor can do but we move on and thank Connor for what he did for us.

"Connor is Sunderland's player and they didn't contact us (about resigning him). I think the deal with Leeds had already been done anyway.
