Bournemouth beat QPR to climb to second


Bournemouth climbed up to second in the Sky Bet Championship table after beating QPR 2-1 in an entertaining clash at the Vitality Stadium.

Scott Parker's team were gifted the lead after 12 minutes, when Jaidon Anthony picked Rob Dickie's pocket and struck his second goal of the season, before Dominic Solanke doubled the advantage with his fifth goal in as many games 25 minutes later.

Sam McCallum's close-range finish halved the deficit with more than half an hour to play, but despite a raft of late chances, Rangers were unable to salvage a point, ending their unbeaten start to the campaign.

As a result, they drop to sixth, while Bournemouth are kept off top spot by West Brom, who were held to a surprise goalless draw by Derby at The Hawthorns.
