Adel Taarabt was back on the scoresheet as QPR beat Derby to complete a week to remember in the Championship.

Adel Taarabt was back on the scoresheet as QPR beat Derby to complete a week to remember in the Championship.

The Moroccan international curled home a delighted free-kick from 30 yards to kick-start Rangers' revival from 2-0 down to win 4-2 at Pride Park.

Adel was involved in the move for the second goal and forced a fine save from Steven Bywater before being substituted in the 75th minute.

It was QPR's third win and four-goal haul in a week - Adel scored last weekend as well - and they are now sixth.

It wasn't such a good day for Jake Livermore, currently on loan at Derby, as he came on in the 62nd minute.

Danny Rose came on in the 79th minute as Peterborough United climbed out of the Championship's relegation zone with a 3-0 home win against Scunthorpe.

It was one of those days for Kyle Walker as Sheffield United lost 4-3 at home to Cardiff City. The full-back was unintentionally involved in Cardiff's opener when Chris Morgan's clearance hit him and was tucked away by Jay Bothroyd. Then, in injury time, Walker's shot was parried out by David Marshall, Stephen Quinn buried the rebound only to be denied by the offside flag.

In the Premier League, Jamie O'Hara played the full 90 minutes as Portsmouth played out a goalless draw at Hull. He was involved in the moment that led to the best chance of the match when his free-kick fell to Aruna Dinedane, whose shot was saved.

In League One, Jonathan Obika made an instant impact off the bench as Yeovil beat Bristol Rovers 2-1 in the West Country derby.

The young striker rose well to meet Andy Welsh's free-kick to level the scores at the Memorial Ground just two minutes after entering the fray. Two minutes later and Terrell Forbes wrapped up the win. Ryan Mason and Steven Caulker both played 90 minutes.

Oscar Jansson and Troy Archibald-Henville were unused substitutes as Exeter drew 1-1 against Wycombe.

In League Two, David Button made a triple save to deny high-flying Notts County in the first half but Crewe eventually succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at Meadow Lane.
