Bad night for QPR manager Mark Hughes following defeat to Reading as Chelsea draw Manchester United

 

Pavel Pogrebnyak’s late backheel saw Reading come out on top 3-2 last night in an enthralling third-round Capital One Cup tie at Queen’s Park Rangers, in which they twice had to come from behind.

QPR got off to a great start when Junior Hoilett scored a superb solo effort 14 minutes in, although Kaspars Gorkss levelled things up against his former club minutes later. Rangers regained the lead when Djibril Cissé fired home from distance, but yet again the visitors responded with a 25-yard Nicky Shorey free kick, before Pogrebnyak backheeled home nine minutes from time. The former Fulham striker then missed a late penalty and Mark Hughes, the QPR manager, also saw Alejandro Faurlin hobble off injured. Hughes said: “To lose it in that manner is disappointing but it is understandable to a certain extent given the changes and the injuries we have at the back.”

Alexander Tettey fired Norwich City into the last 16 with a 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers at Carrow Road, where there was a minute’s silence before kick-off in memory of former manager John Bond, who has died aged 79.

Chris Hughton, the Norwich manager, said: “There was a nice respect from the crowd.”

 

 

In Scotland, Rangers showed they can still compete with the top sides in the country by dumping SPL leaders Motherwell out of the Scottish League Cup.

Motherwell’s hopes of claiming a first win at Ibrox since 1997 were dashed by second-half goals from Lee McCulloch and Dean Shiels as Rangers booked their place in the quarter-finals.
