It was another outstanding performance from the Hoops to make it back-to-back victories in the league with a win against Sheffield United.

QPR appeared to play their game-plan to perfection, and arguably should have had more than the one goal to put the game beyond doubt.

It was an excellent display, but what are the main talking points to arise from the game?

A stroke of luck

QPR will never be gifted a more fortuitous goal.

As the ball came into the area many heads in the stands looked away as it appeared a formality that Jamal Blackman would gather the ball with ease; no-one anticipated what would happen next.

An unfortunate collision with his defender forced and awkward landing and put the ball comfortable in Idrissa Sylla's path four yards from goal, a perfect poacher's goal.

Fortunate? Yes, but as Ian Holloway alluded to after the game it wouldn't have happened if QPR hadn't been pressing high up, meaning that the extra bit of pressure proved costly.

Of course it was an extremely awkward landing, and everyone wishes Blackman the best in his recovery, which if the lengthy stoppage is anything to go by, could lead to a long spell on the sidelines.

Giant killers?

A tongue-in-cheek heading for this section, but the ability to win against the Championship's top two teams in the space of three days should not go unnoticed.

It's been a frustrating few weeks with results perhaps not representing the high level of performance put in by Ian Holloway's side, but we always knew it was in their locker to turn it round in sensational style.

The back-to-back victories puts the club within two points of the play-offs, and with a trip to bogey-team Nottingham Forest up next, you'd hope the confidence gained could see the team to a good result at the City Ground.

Alex Baptiste

After signing on a free transfer over the summer, many would have expected the former-Middlesbrough defender to be a fringe player at best; how wrong they've been.

Granted, luck has played a part for the 31-year-old, as we will never know if he would have got a chance in the team if it wasn't for the injury pile-up in the defence, but he's certainly taken his opportunities.

Baptiste has improved week on week, and last night's performance against Sheffield United was simply collossal. I don't think I saw him lose a battle all evening whether it was in the air, a 50-50 ball or winning a challenge which he had zero right to win.

In my opinion, that was the best defensive display I've seen in a QPR shirt this season, and as well as hoping he maintains this form moving forward, injured stars such as Nedum Onuoha, Grant Hall and James Perch will have a huge task on their hands to dislodge Alex Baptiste and Jack Robinson in defence.

God loves a trier

Another player who really impressed against Sheffield United was Conor Washington.

The Northern Ireland international was a real handful all night, getting in behind a slow-looking Blades defence, and unnerving the back-line with his direct running.

The only thing that was missing was a goal.

The striker is a firm fans' favourite due to what he brings to the team, and to many it was a real shame that he couldn't cap an otherwise excellent performance with a goal.

A change in momentum

It's amazing what difference three days can make.

A run which extended to seven games without a win, has transformed into a four-game unbeaten run for QPR, completely turning the feel of the club on it's head.

With everything going on behind the scenes, it's clear that the team is pulling together and the victories over Sheffield United and Wolves have shown the spirit which the club will need this season.

Managers always say that a team should do their talking on the pitch, and my word have QPR done that.
