QPR 1, Stoke 0

Through the miracle of closed circuit TV, degenerate Americans, ex-pats and other denizens of bars that subscribe to the Setanta Pub Channel were treated to Friday night’s Sky coverage of the Coca-Cola Championship match between QPR and Stoke. Lee Cook’s 17th minute strike was the difference and provided Rangers with a sorely need 3 points in this, their first win since November 27.

Defender Andrew Davies, just brought in on loan, was injured before the intermission.
