Parkinson suffered a stroke in 2010 which left him unable to move or speak.

With the score poised at 1-1 in added time, a defensive back pass appeared to bobble over the foot of goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos and into the path of Bobby Zamora. The R's striker then had the simple task of rolling the ball into the empty net.

Another late strike from Ravel Morrison then sealed a 3-1 win for QPR.
