QPR took the lead in first-half injury time as Lee Cook whipped the ball across the box from the left, keeper Boaz Myhill attempted to collect it but failed to hold on to the ball and Ray Jones tapped the ball across to Blackstock, who passed the ball into the net from close range.

The home side hit the bar midway through the second half as Dean Marney curled in a right-footed corner and Turner rose to power a header against the crossbar and QPR were able to clear.

Hull did grab the equaliser on 85 minutes as Marney raced into the box from the right and played the ball in to substitute Elliott who smashed the ball into the net from close range.

Cook was sent off for QPR moments later after receiving a second yellow card for dissent.
