Charlie Austin scored the hosts' first league goal of this campaign to relieve the pressure on QPR manager Harry Redknapp.

Austin struck in the second minute of first-half stoppage time at Loftus Road, firing high into the net from a well-worked corner after a headed pass from summer recruit Leroy Fer.

QPR has three points after three matches, one more than Sunderland.
