Adel Taarabt's inspired performance proved the difference at Loftus Road as Harry Redknapp's side belatedly broke their duck with victory against their near neighbours.

The Rs have shown signs of improvement since Redknapp succeeded Mark Hughes at the helm, following up three successive draws with a first win here - thanks in no small part to Taarabt and they held on for three points despite substitute Mladen Petric's late strike.
