Ravel Morrison: Celebrates goal for QPR at Birmingham

Morrison, who joined from West Ham in mid-February, struck in the 14th and 73rd minutes to allow Rangers to take advantage of slip-ups by their promotion-chasing rivals.

With the top two not playing, none of the other teams in the top 12 in action managed a win with Derby and Nottingham Forest slipping to surprise defeats at home to Millwall and away to Barnsley respectively.

Steve Morison, the on-loan Leeds forward, scored the only goal in the 61st minute to end Derby's seven-match unbeaten run.

Dale Jennings was Barnsley's hero with the solitary goal in the 51st minute to move his side off the bottom of the table.

Yeovil's 2-0 win at home to Sheffield Wednesday, meanwhile, put them within two points of safety.

Ishmael Miller scored twice in the 10 minutes either side of half-time, with the Owls' misery completed by Sam Hutchinson's late red card.

Wigan's involvement in the FA Cup allowed Reading to creep back into the last play-off place, albeit on goal difference, with a 1-1 draw at Brighton.

Trailing to Chris Gunter's 17th-minute own goal, the Royals capitalised on the sending-off of Gordon Greer - with Royston Drenthe equalising just past the hour.

Bolton stunned Leeds with a 5-1 victory at Elland Road, easing their relegation worries.

Joe Mason's effort on the stroke of half-time was followed by goals from Lukas Jutkiewicz, Zat Knight, Mark Davies and Andre Moritz before Matt Smith's last-minute consolation.

Doncaster ensured they kept themselves clear of the relegation zone with a 2-0 win at home to Huddersfield thanks to goals from Billy Sharp and David Cotterill.

On-loan striker Danny Graham opened his account for Middlesbrough with both goals in the 2-0 win at home to Ipswich.

The Sunderland forward, in his second loan spell of the season after a miserable spell at Hull, grabbed both his goals in the latter stages of the first half.

Bournemouth moved closer to mid-table security as Lewis Grabban's penalty early in the second half ensured Blackpool still have to worry about their proximity to the bottom three.

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
