Football - QPR disappoint in loss to Everton

A deflected strike from Darron Gibson - Everton's 50th goal in the Premier League this season - and a smart finish from Victor Anichebe five minutes either side of half-time secured a victory the hosts were just not made to work hard enough for.

With five matches remaining the west Londoners are seven points from safety and they simply have to win their next two games against Stoke and Reading - the clubs closest to them in their remaining fixtures - to even stand a chance of surviving.
