Adel Taarabt must have caught Neil Warnock's eye as QPR's new boss celebrated a 3-1 win against West Brom in his first game in charge on Saturday.

The skilful midfielder began the moves that led to QPR's opening two goals in the first half at Loftus Road.

Adel turned away from Ben Watson before crossing for Jay Simpson to open the scoring and then switched play inside from the left to Alejandro Faurlin, who set-up Matt Connolly for the second. Adel was eventually substituted in the 69th minute.

Staying in the Championship, Kyle Naughton played 90 minutes as Middlesbrough suffered a 1-0 loss at Cardiff City.

In League One, Ryan Mason and Steven Caulker both started as Yeovil lost 3-0 at leaders Norwich City while Jon Obika came on in the 78th minute as Millwall came from 2-0 down to snatch a last-minute equaliser at Walsall.

David Button could do little to prevent Shrewsbury from falling to a surprise 3-0 defeat at struggling Grimsby in League Two. Adam Smith was an unused substitute as Torquay beat Darlington 3-0 at the Darlington Arena.

Of our more senior players out on loan, Robbie Keane scored both goals as Celtic beat Falkirk 2-0 in the Scottish Premier League and Jamie O'Hara impressed again as Portsmouth toppled Birmingham City 2-0 in Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final.

In Turkey, Giovani's Galatasaray top the Super Lig by a point and take on Eskisehirspor tonight (Monday, March 8).
