Result: QPR come from behind to overcome Brentford at Loftus Road

Sam Field also scored in the 2-1 victory after Ivan Toney had given the visitors the lead.

Charlie Austin scored the winner as QPR came from behind to beat Brentford 2-1 in the west London derby.

Ivan Toney's 24th league goal of the season put the Bees ahead on the half-hour mark.

But on-loan West Brom duo Austin and Sam Field turned the game on its head by scoring in the space of four second-half minutes.

It condemned Brentford to a second successive loss – three days after a defeat at home to Barnsley ended a 21-match unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship.

Field, on as a substitute for his R's debut, thumped in a left-footed volley from 10 yards out after Brentford failed to clear Todd Kane's 72nd-minute cross from the right.

Kane was also involved in the build-up to the second Rangers goal.

His cross-field ball was pounced on by Lee Wallace, who pulled back for Austin to fire home via a deflection

Brentford had been the better side and went ahead when Mattias Jensen whipped in a free-kick from the left and Toney's slight touch at the far post nudged the ball beyond keeper Seny Dieng and into the far corner of the net.

The visitors continued to dominate after taking the lead, with Toney's deflected free-kick flashing just over and Dieng pushing away Jensen's long-range strike.

Visiting keeper David Raya was finally called into action late in the first half when he saved with his legs to keep out former Brentford defender Yoann Barbet's volley.

QPR improved after the interval and went close to equalising when on-loan Fulham midfielder Stefan Johansen curled a free-kick narrowly over.

But Brentford looked fairly comfortable before being emphatically punished for two shoddy defensive lapses.

And they ran out of ideas in the attacking third in the final stages, with Toney's header over from Jensen's corner the closest they came to an equaliser.

Thomas Frank's side remain second in the table but his team's recent wobble will no doubt be of concern to the Dane.

On the other hand, Rangers' former Brentford boss Mark Warburton has seen his team recover well from a recent slump.

Austin's return to his former club has had the desired effect and Rangers have lost just one of their past eight matches – a run which has included five wins.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
