Queens Park Rangers: Fans recall dramatic day at Man City when they secured Premier League safety - QPR

Plenty of QPR fans reflected joyfully on the final day of the 2011/12 Premier League season despite tasting defeat that afternoon.

Eight years ago yesterday, the R’s were beaten 3-2 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, having gone 2-1 up through a second half Jamie Mackie header, with footage of that goal shared on Twitter by @QPR.
