Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

WEST Brom ran riot as they thrashed QPR 7-1 in their Cham­pi­onship en­counter at The Hawthorns.

Six sec­ond-half goals saw Al­bion romp to vic­tory and leave Rangers still look­ing for their first point this sea­son.

Matt Phillips had given Al­bion a 29th-minute lead only for QPR to equalise through Joel Lynch. Kieran Gibbs scored his first Al­bion goal in the 53rd minute with Jay Ro­driguez net­ting a penalty two min­utes later.

Dwight Gayle opened his ac­count in the 67 th minute be­fore he won a penalty that Ro­driguez con­verted. Phillips scored a sec­ond two min­utes from time be­fore Hal Rob­son-Kanu made it seven in stop­page time.
