Result: Late Charlie Austin winner defeats Watford

Charlie Austin scores late on to secure a 2-1 victory for Queens Park Rangers over Watford.

Charlie Austin scored in stoppage time to secure all three points for Queens Park Rangers at the expense of Watford at Loftus Road this afternoon.

Troy Deeney had two early chances during the first half, but the Watford striker failed to make the most of them, while up the other end QPR full-back Danny Simpson shot straight at Manuel Almunia.

However, having failed to convert his opportunities earlier on, Deeney made amends in the 50th minute when he turned inside the penalty area, before firing a low shot beyond the reach of Rob Green.

The visiting Hornets continued to push forward in search of a second goal, but Green and his defence held firm.

Then, their stubbornness was rewarded 14 minutes from time when midfielder Joey Barton wrong footed Almunia with a curling effort from 20 yards out.

Having been pegged back, Watford responded positively, but when Deeney was presented with an opening, he shot inches wide of the upright.

That miss would prove to be a costly one in the 90th minute as Austin curled in the winning goal, which has secured QPR's place in the playoffs.
