A late Wes Brown goal earns Sunderland a 3-2 win at QPR.

A late Wes Brown goal has earned Sunderland a 3-2 win at Queens Park Rangers.

Nicklas Bendtner could have given the visitors the lead, but the Dane struck the crossbar from close range.

The striker was more decisive soon after as he headed in Kieran Richardson's corner to put his side in front at the break.

The R's nearly drew level after half time, but Heidar Helguson's header was cleared off the line by Titus Bramble.

Stephane Sessegnon extended his side's lead when he sprinted past Luke Young before dummying goalkeeper Paddy Kenny to slot in.

Rangers cut the deficit on the hour when Helguson slid in to convert Alejandro Faurlin's cross before the scores were level courtesy of Jamie Mackie's header.

The winner came in the 89th minute when Brown's hopeful header from a corner found the net.
