Match ends, Queens Park Rangers 1, Ipswich Town 0.
Matt Phillips' late strike helped QPR to a well-deserved first home win under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink against Ipswich in the Championship.
Ipswich keeper Bartosz Bialkowski made three good saves from Junior Hoilett to deny the R's a first-half lead.
The hosts continued to dominate in the second half before Freddie Sears missed a good chance to put Ipswich ahead.
QPR finally sealed the three points when debutant Nasser El Khayati set up Phillips to head in at the back post.
Freddie Sears could have equalised for the Tractor Boys in injury time, but Alex Smithies saved sharply to secure Hasselbaink's first win at Loftus Road, more than two months after he replaced Chris Ramsey as boss.
The R's stay 13th in the table, while Mick McCarthy's Ipswich drop out of the play-off places after losing their second successive away league game.
QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink:
"To win overall is satisfying, and obviously at home, yes.
"When you see the first half and you go in 0-0 at half-time, you've done yourself an injustice.
"But I think we kept being positive, kept plugging away, kept going and kept having the trust that we would score the goal we deserved."
Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy:
"It's where you are in May that counts and the key is to get into that top six.
"The conditions were horrible but it ended up being an exciting game and we were much better in that second half and could have scored.
"I thought we were the ones that were the most likely to win the game in the second half, so to have conceded in the last few minutes makes it even more disappointing to lose."
