On This Day: QPR's Crushing Victory Over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge!

Ok it's an eon ago, but whatever!

December 28th 1974: Recently-appointed, Dave Sexton-managed QPR against a recently-having-dismissed-Dave Sexton Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. QPR had the recently-signed Don Masson in midfield and John Beck in his best QPR season. Chelsea I believe were managed by Ron Stuart with Eddie McCreadie as Coach.
Score: Chelsea 0 QPR 3 - Two from Don Givens; one from Gerry Francis.

NB: I don't have the Chelsea team, but if anyone has it, and wants to post it, please do. Chelsea had already sold Osgood and Hudson. But they had Bonnetti, Hollins, Hutchinson, Ron Harris, etc, etc.
