Bolton 1, QPR 2

The final whistle goes and QPR record their first away win of the season. Goals from Luke Freeman and Eberechi Eze in both halves set the R's on their way before Josh Magennis pulled a goal back to set up a nervy final 20 minutes. However, Steve McClaren's side held on to secure all three points to stretch their unbeaten run to four matches in all competitions.
