Not for the first time this season, Adel Taarabt scored the match-winning goal as Queens Park Rangers extended their lead at the top of the Championship to five points with a 2-1 defeat of second-placed Cardiff City at Loftus Road. The Welsh side went ahead in the 13th minute through Craig Bellamy, but the lead lasted only five minutes, Kaspars Gorkss heading in from Tommy Smith's cross. Taarabt was beginning to direct QPR operations and midway through the second half he beat Lee Naylor and calmly found the top-left corner.

This season's first three points took just 90 minutes after the Suffolk side put Middlesbrough's stature as favourites for promotion into focus with goals by Tommy Smith, Tamas Priskin and Jon Stead sealing a 3-1 away win.
