Leicester City 5-1 QPR
Fair play to the 1,595 QPR fans who braved this meltdown.
Rangers were never at the races, and not even an 18th goal of the season for Charlie Austin raised more than a cursory cheer.
The only thing to trouble Leicester keeper Kaspar Schmeichel in the first half was a dodgy inflatable doll that blew into his box.
The rubber thing is the sort blokes tote around at a stag do, and for most of the 45 minutes it looked as if Rs had just come from one.
Leonardo Ulloa came close to an early opener but curled his shot inches wide after breaking into the box.
Rangers looked as if the beach couldn’t come soon enough in the opening spell.
What did come was a terrible mistake from Alex McCarthy for the opening goal.
Riyad Mahrez took aim from 25-yards and the stand-in keeper for injured Rob Green spilled it to the feet of Jamie Vardy.
The last person you want to present a gift to is a player just selected for England, and he made sure from the rebound.
Austin wasn’t that far away with his first effort, and Matty Phillips flashed a shot just wide from 20 yards.
But Leicester soon regained the ascendancy when a dithering defence watched a cross reach Marc Albrighton, who smashed the ball into the net from 12 yards.
Reece Grego-Cox went wide seconds into the second half when the teenager should have buried the chance.
It would be harsh to say Rs heads dropped when they blew a chance to get back in the game, but Leicester then scored twice in two minutes.
Wes Morgan’s shot was going a mile wide, but Ulloa’s stomach pinged the ball past a stranded McCarthy.
Esteban Cambiasso then drilled home from 12 yards, for result, if not game over.
Charlie Austin’s headed goal from Joey Barton’s chip was a tiny solace for the travelling faithful, but then coach Chris Ramsey rang the changes.
Brandon Comley had a decent debut cameo for the last 10 minutes. But poor Cole Kpekawa’s first touch of the ball in senior football was to gift Andrej Kramaric a 12-yard drive and a final nail into Rangers’ coffin.
The number 24 is significant as regards defeats. No other Premier League has ever suffered as many.
