Caltex Socceroos midfielder Massimo Luongo found the target but couldn’t prevent QPR from falling to a heavy loss in the English Championship overnight.
The Aussie scored his side’s first goal in a 5-2 loss at home to Nottingham Forrest.
With his side trailing 3-0, Luongo reacted quickest to a loose ball inside the area following a corner and bundled home from close range.
But it proved mere consolation for QPR in Luongo's 100th appearance for the club.
Elsewhere, Tim Cahill was introduced off the bench with just over 10 minutes remaining as Millwall secured a 1-0 win away to Burton Albion.
Ben Marshall netted just past the hour mark to hand Millwall their third-straight league victory.
The win leaves the Lions in 12th spot on the table, six points adrift of the playoff spots.
Meanwhile, Mile Jedinak was brought on in the 83rd minute to help Aston Villa secure a 4-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough Stadium.
With scores locked at 2-2, Villa netted twice after Jedinak’s introduction with Conor Hourihane and Robert Snodgrass finding the target in the dying minutes.
