Struggling Plymouth picked up a useful point from a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road courtesy of a wonder strike from Akos Buzsaky.

The Hungarian midfielder found the net with a stunning long-range effort to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in a game that Queens Park Rangers dominated for long periods.

However, Kevin Gallen rescued a draw for Ian Holloway's side when he fired home from the spot in the second half.

Rangers enjoyed plenty of possession throughout the 90 minutes but were unable to create too many chances against a well-drilled Plymouth defence.

Buzsaky's goal on the half hour stunned the home fans, who nearly saw their team fall two goals behind a minute later when Paul Wotton's shot appeared to be destined for the back of the net until it clipped Lloyd Dyer and went wide.

The hosts left the field at half-time to a chorus of boos and the crowd's anger appeared to sting them into life after the break.

Paul Furlong came close to scoring with a header that just went wide, while goalkeeper Romain Larrieu did well to tip over Lee Cook's shot.

Rangers finally got themselves on level terms with a penalty as Gallen converted after his corner was handled by Scott Taylor.

Buoyed by the goal, the home side went in search of a late winner but were kept at bay by Plymouth.
