Who score the R's goals in the 4-0 shellacking of Southampton on the plastic pitch?

It's strange how some games stick in the mind and some don't. I was almost certainly in attendance but don't remember the game at all.
A surfeit of ale before the game tends to have that effect.

Well, I still couldn't remember but found a grainy youtube clip. So it was Wicks, Micklewhite, Allen and Wallace. I must have been the worse for wear that day - my family motto, Omnes Blotto.
That was some team.

Just found the goals on You Tube. The last one was from Waddock, not Wallace.

Bolton was 0-4 & Swansea was 0-5. August 2011 & August 2012 respectively.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Which regular penalty taker for us never missed one in the hoops, but missed one for England?
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

I do feel old when I can remember that far back but then again if I can remember the brains still working.

...pretty sure Swansea scored 5 (I was there) with Green in goal...but Bolton were poor and managed to score only 4....

Two brothers who both played for us but never in the same match played one match on opposing sides. Bonus point for naming the match.
