RAVEL Morrison’s impressive double and a gift of a header allowed QPR to ease to a 3-0 victory over Yeovil Town in the Sky Bet Championship. Cheered on by almost 1,400 traveling fans, Gary Johnson’s men started brightly only to fall flat as the Rs proved their quality.
Ravel Morrison grabbed another double as QPR got back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Yeovil. The on-loan West Ham midfielder, whose two goals against Birmingham last weekend earned Rangers their first win in six attempts, repeated the trick against the lowly Glovers. Forgotten striker Bobby Zamora also got in on the act with his first goal in more than a year as Harry Redknapp’s side bounced back from their midweek defeat at Brighton.
HARRY Redknapp enjoyed a return to winning ways after overseeing QPR’s joint-best victory of the season against Yeovil Town on Saturday.
Ravel Morrison’s brace either side of substitute Bobby Zamora’s second-half strike secured maximum points, providing the perfect response to defeat in midweek.
“It was a tough game,” the R’s boss told www.qpr.co.uk. “Yeovil are a good side.
“They’re very well organised and they worked their socks off. In the end it was a great result for us.
GARY Johnson was left to lament what he believed was a perfectly acceptable goal that would have given Yeovil Town the lead in their eventual defeat at QPR.
The Glovers started brightly in the Sky Bet Championship clash at Loftus Road and had the ball in the net when Luke Ayling lobbed Rob Green at 0-0. However, the versatile right-footer – playing in midfield following Ruben Palazuelos’ injury in the warm-up – was denied a second senior strike.

QPR 3 – Yeovil 0: Bobby Zamora scores on his return as Rangers get back to winning ways
BOBBY ZAMORA is a ‘monster’ to defend against, according to QPR team-mate Nedum Onuoha.
INJURY and lack of impact caused Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson to substitute Huddersfield Town loanee Duane Holmes after less than half an hour at QPR.
The pacy winger who has two games left of his initial month with the Glovers was replaced by Kevin Dawson with just 29 minutes on the clock at Loftus Road.
Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has been nominated for the Football League’s Outstanding Managerial Achievement Award after leading the Somerset side to the second tier of English football for the first time in the club’s history.
