QPR stunned Watford to record a 4-2 victory at Vicarage Road this afternoon to climb out of the Championship relegation zone.

Rangers found themselves 3-0 up at the break after Martin Rowlands struck twice and Damion Stewart's header.

Rowlands netted from the penalty spot after Jordan Stewart brought down Dexter Blackstock. Damion Stewart rose to head in a corner for the second after 29 minutes. And Rowlands scored another with a smart volley to silence the home fans.

Watford pulled one back when Damien Francis tapped into the net.

But QPR restored their three-goal lead when substitute Akos Buzsaky fired in from an acute angle. Watford grabbed a second late on when Dan Shittu scored against his former club.

But Rangers celebrated their best win of the season to boost their survival hopes.
