QPR 2 Chelsea 4 - From Chelsea Official Site
- "..Several cup ties stand out too. Before the sixth round tie at Loftus Road in late February 1970, Chelsea had injury worries - a friendly against Borough Road Teacher Training College, of all teams, was arranged the Wednesday before and John Dempsey, Harris and Charlie Cooke came through.
Terry Venables had augmented the old boy contingent in Shepherd's Bush and Rangers were ascendant again, but the 'remorseless locomotion' of the visitors and a hat-trick from Peter Osgood brought a 4-2 win to keep things all quiet on the western front.
- Inside ten minutes Dave Webb had created and scored the opener, followed by Ossie's first, to ensure fans of Second Division Rangers had a very long afternoon to endure with their stars failing to shine. Rodney Marsh was so deep in Chopper's pocket it was still a surprise to see him turn up on TV's 'I'm A Celebrity' 37 years on." Chelsea Official Site via QPR Report

Vital Football QPR on the QPR v Chelsea Game
- "...In 1970, Chelsea and QPR were drawn to face each other in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea's Alan Hudson described it as a 'fantastic draw', due to the rivalry between the two clubs. To add further spice, QPR were fielding two former Chelsea players, Terry Venables and Barry Bridges, as well as their star striker, Rodney Marsh.
- In an entertaining match, despite the poor pitch, Chelsea were 2-0 up within eight minutes thanks to Peter Osgood and David Webb, with a twice-taken Venables penalty putting Rangers back in contention. As Rangers threatened to equalise, Osgood scored twice more to complete his hat-trick and put the result beyond doubt, before Bridges grabbed a late consolation for his side. Chelsea would ultimately go on to win the cup that season." Vital Football QPR
