Queens Park Rangers 1-1 Everton
The points were shared between QPR and Everton with a Julio Cesar own goal cancelling out Junior Hoilett's first-half strike.
Rangers made the best possible start as Hoilett broke away from an Everton corner in the second minute to make a storming run before he fired a shot at goal, which took a wicked deflection off Leighton Baines, before catching Tim Howard off guard and bouncing into the net.
The home side continued to press and should have gone two goals in front when Ryan Nelson managed to create space for a headed effort from six yards out but he could not keep it down and the ball sailed over the crossbar.
However, the defending that has been the major weakness for QPR this season was evident on the 33rd minute, when Sylvain Distin was given a free header, which hit the left upright before bouncing off Cesar and into his own goal.
The second-half started much like the first as the home side played some decent football and their night got even better when Steven Pienaar was shown a second yellow card and was sent from the field on the 61st minute.
Despite the one man advantage it was Everton who enjoyed the best chance to win the game in the 70th minute when Phil Jagielka saw his close range header well saved by Cesar.
Rangers had a penalty decision turned down on the 81st minute when Hoilett was brought down in the box and Tim Howard was forced into making a couple of good saves but neither side could break the deadlock and the spoils were shared come the final whistle.
