The Championship leaders Queens Park Rangers have taken another big step towards promotion to English football's Premier League with a 3-0 win over struggling Sheffield United.

The west London club's now nine points clear of Norwich with Cardiff 13 points behind the leaders in third.

if results elsewhere go their way QPR could be celebrating promotion at Barnsley in eight days, 15 years after being relegated from the top tier and with five games to spare.
