Steven Fletcher had given the visitors the lead early on but Loic Remy's goal ensured that QPR went into the break level before stunning strikes from Andros Townsend and Jermaine Jenas saw them win their second successive game.

As a result, BetVictor, William Hill and bet365 make Harry Redknapp's side 4/7 from as short as 2/7 to be relegated, although they remain second-favourites behind Reading.

Brian McDermott's outfit are now as short as 1/14 for the drop and no bigger than 1/7 after they relinquished an early lead to lose 2-1 to Aston Villa. Paul Lambert's side started the day as odds-on chances for relegation but can now be backed at 5/4.

Wigan, despite being in winning FA Cup form, were cut from evens to as short as 4/6 to go down and are now odds-on across the board, while Sunderland could yet be dragged into the mire according to the layers, who quote no bigger than 10/1.

Norwich spurned a fine opportunity to beat Southampton when Grant Holt missed a penalty deep into stoppage time, but while Stan James make them 7/1 to be relegated bet365 and Ladbrokes are happy to lay 16/1.

Saints, who put an end to a two-game losing run with the 0-0 draw, range from 6/4 with BetVictor to the 100/30 offered by totesport and Betfred.
