Ivan Klasnic comes off the bench to claim all three points for Bolton Wanderers from their home fixture against Queens Park Rangers.

Bolton Wanderers striker Ivan Klasnic came off the bench to score the winning goal during this afternoon's relegation six-pointer against Queens Park Rangers at the Reebok Stadium.

After a quiet start to the fixture, QPR thought they had broken the deadlock in the 18th minute when Clint Hill converted a corner from Joey Barton, despite the effort of Wanderers goalkeeper Adam Bogdan.

However, referee Martin Atkinson and his assistant failed to spot that the ball had crossed the line.

QPR's misery was compounded in the 38th minute when Darren Pratley headed his first ever goal in the Premier League following a cross from Martin Petrov.

The away side had chances to draw themselves level before the break, but Shaun Wright-Phillips shot over, while Nedum Onuoha saw his effort blocked by Bogdan.

Just three minutes after the restart, QPR did haul themselves level. Wright-Phillips threaded a pass for Cisse, who was allowed to convert past Bogdan despite appearing to be in an offside position.

Substitute Jamie Mackie went close to grabbing a second for QPR 12 minutes from time, but his goal-bound effort was blocked on the line by Wanderers defender David Wheater.

With just four minutes remaining, Ryo Miyaichi slipped a pass through to Klasnic, who took one touch before slotting the ball beyond an advancing Paddy Kenny in the away goal.

QPR piled on the pressure in stoppage time, but they were unable to find a second equaliser.

Wanderers move out of the relegation zone with the three points.
