Winless Queens Park Rangers remains last in the Premier League with only two points out of a possible 21 following a 3-2 loss at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Goals from James Morrison in the fifth minute, Zoltan Gera in the 22nd and Youssouf Mulumbu in the 85th gave West Brom its fourth league win of the season as the Baggies provisionally moved to fourth in the standings and Champions League spots.

Adel Taarabt cut West Brom's lead to 2-1 in the 35th, while Esteban Granero scored in injury time for QPR.

The pressure is mounting on QPR manager Mark Hughes after signing several players in the offseason. Hughes took over from Neil Warnock in January with the club finishing in 17th place.
