Leicester came from behind to earn a precious victory at Loftus Road.Stephen Hughes struck a late winner to give Leicester a 3-2 victory at QPR and end their run of 10 games without a win in the Championship.
The Foxes fought back after conceding an early goal to earn the three points which move them out of the relegation zone.
It was a flying start for caretaker manager Rob Kelly in his first league match since taking over from the sacked Craig Levein.
However, things began badly for Kelly's men as they fell behind after six minutes, Lee Cook picking out Gareth Ainsworth who headed beyond Rab Douglas.
Leicester were level just four minutes later though as Matt Fryatt shook off poor challenges from Marcus Bignot and Dan Shittu before firing past Simon Royce.
Paul Furlong almost restored Rangers' lead, only to see his header cleared off the line by Alan Maybury, but there were few chances until the game burst into life in the final 11 minutes.
Richard Stearman was the first to strike, volleying past Royce from James Wesolowski's perfect right-wing cross.
Ian Holloway's side quickly equalised and Cook was once again the provider, crossing for Shittu to head home.
But City grabbed the winner two minutes from time when Stearman cut the ball back for Hughes to tap in.
