QPR 3-1 Crystal Palace
Palace might feel Glad All Over to mirror the Dave Clark Five sixties hit they run out to.
For Rangers, it's more a case of It's Over, as Roy Orbison used to lament.
Matt Phillips hit a brilliant consolation when it was all too late. A pity, because his right-foot dipping effort from 25 yards was good enough to win any game.
But Hoops were tucked up and good and proper in a first-half spell where they conceded three times inside 21 minutes - two of them carbon copies as Yannick Bolasie ran riot down the left.
Poor Darnell Furlong. The teenager must wonder what he's let himself in for.
Subbed at half time, the teenager couldn't match the pace of the Palace wide man and he delivered twice: the first for Wifried Zaha to convert, the second when Rob Green got his fingers to the ball, but only succeeded in laying it on a plate for James McArthur.
And when your luck's out - it's truly out. The third goal, a debut strike for Joel Ward took a vital nick of Sandro's thigh to send it past Green's despairing dive.
A nothing first 15 minutes gave way to seeing Scott Dann spurn a heading chance from a corner, and again at the back post a minute later from a second dead-ball delivery.
It mattered not a lot when Zaha converted. In fact, the scorer was the meat in a human sandwich that saw Jason Puncheon, Yun and the lethally fast forward collide with a post as he connected with Bolasie's cross.
And QPR's efforts on goal - apart from Phillips's missile?
Taarabt fired just over from distance in the first half, and Austin headed straight at the keeper after 70 minutes. Phillips had a second go from distance, but this time Julian Speroni was equal to the fierce drive.
In fact, the one bit of luck Rangers had all day was a slip by Steven Caulker in the box that saw Glenn Murray take aim but only fire against Caulker's chest as he tried to get to his feet.
Some consolation, huh?
