Idrissa Sylla headed home a late winner to help QPR earn a 2-1 victory over near neighbours Fulham and ensure Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ended a difficult week on high.

Manager Hasselbaink had been caught up in the Daily Telegraph's investigation into corruption in football but took his place in the dugout and saw his QPR side win at Craven Cottage for the first time since 1980.

And he rode his luck on the way as Fulham missed two penalties and a host of chances before substitute Sylla headed home in the 87th minute of this west London derby. Conor Washington's first league goal for QPR had opened the scoring before Tim Ream levelled up, only for Sylla to win it.
