QPR lost for the first time in five games - and in truth they deserved it.
This wasn't a Rangers performance to right home about. Conor Washington scored just past the hour to make it into a contest - but two Burton strikes before it boosted a side in Championship trouble.
Here's what we thought of the players with marks out of 10.
Alex Smithies 7: Not a lot to do, but one excellent stop from Lloyd Dyer to keep Hoops in the game.
Jake Bidwell 7: Solid as ever, but not able to get forward as he wanted.
Grant Hall 6: Did nothing wrong, but Rangers needed an extra attacker at half-time - that and he was injured. Subbed 45 minutes
Joel Lynch 6: Conceded a couple of fouls that gave Burton respite when they needed it most. Steady enough, for all that.
Pawel Wszolek 6: Powerful again down the right, but not as powerful as recent games.
Michael Doughty 6: OK, but rarely able to get into the game long enough to make a telling impact. Subbed 74 minutes.
Kazenga LuaLua 8: Looked the business down the left, but no one on the end of his telling crosses.
Darnell Furlong 6: Spirited performance, but went awol for the second Burton goal.
Idrissa Sylla 5: Do you get handed luck or make your own? If it's the latter, the striker needs to be way more effective in the box. But he was carrying a knock.
Matt Ingram n/a
Conor Washington 7: Not on long enough, A great goal, and would surely have produced more had he been on from the start.
Jamie Mackie n/a : only on for three minutes
James Perch n/a
Mide Shodipo n/a
Ebere Eze n/a
Ryan Manning 6: Did well when he came on after 72 minutes, but had little time to make an impact
