QPR, sliding away from the play-off places, were dreadful, and to make matters worse, they had the defender Karl Ready sent off in the 55th minute when he lashed out at Reading's player-manager, Jimmy Quinn.
Morley took only 84 seconds to get his name on the scoresheet when Darren Caskey's free-kick found him unmarked in the six-yard box, and he put away a crisp header.
With Ready off and having to chase the game, QPR were caught on the break four minutes from time when Andy Bernal swung in a cross which Danny Maddix headed into his own net.
