Adel Taarabt scored a wonder goal for QPR and Ryan Mason struck twice for Yeovil on a great weekend for our players out on loan.

Adel Taarabt scored a wonder goal for QPR and Ryan Mason struck twice for Yeovil on a great weekend for our players out on loan.

Moroccan international Adel was labelled a 'genius' by QPR boss Jim Magilton after his solo effort opened the scoring in Rangers' 4-0 win against Preston in the Championship.

Adel chested down a long clearance on the left touchline by the half-way line, breezed past two Preston players as he cut infield before curling into the top corner from 25 yards.

"He has that in spades, he's a genius," beamed Magilton. "He's a dying breed in the modern game, the way he goes past people, and the finish was pure class."

Adel was also brought down for the penalty that enabled QPR to go 2-0 up via Akos Buzsaky in the second half before Jay Simpson and ex-Spur Wayne Routledge wrapped up the win.

Staying in the Championship, Danny Rose delivered the cross for George Boyd to loop home a last-minute header as Peterborough United nicked a 1-1 draw at Bristol City.

Jake Livermore completed another 90-minute shift for Derby in central midfield alongside Robbie Savage in goalless draw at Leicester City while Kyle Walker played the full game as Sheffield United suffered a 3-1 defeat at Scunthorpe.

In League One, Ryan Mason celebrated his return to Yeovil after a successful European U19 Championship preliminary qualifying round campaign with England in Slovenia with a double strike in the Glovers' 3-1 win against Carlisle.

The young striker produced two crisp finishes - the first from 15 yards, the second a one-on-one after beating the offside trap and sprinting onto a through pass - in his 76-minute stint.

Steven Caulker, also in that England U19 squad, played the full 90 minutes on Saturday, Jon Obika wasn't in the 18.

Andros Townsend set up the winning goal for Leyton Orient against Brentford when he beat his man and saw his cross headed into his own net by Bees' defender and former Spurs trainee Danny Foster. Goalkeeper Lee Butcher was an unused substitute in Orient's 2-1 win.

Dean Parrett, the third of our four England U19 players alongside Mason, Caulker and Adam Smith, continued the theme of our loan players involved in goals when he set-up Dave Winfield for Aldershot's opener against Bury in League Two. He played 80 minutes but Aldershot lost the League Two clash 3-2 at the Rec.

David Button was in goal for Crewe as they lost 2-1 at home to Port Vale in League Two.
