HEIDAR Helguson finally ended QPR's barren run away from home - but it was not enough to earn the Rs their second away win of the season.

Helguson's first-half strike was Rangers' first on the road in three months, or 13 hours and 13 minutes of Championship football, but the visitors paid for their failure to kill Plymouth off when substitute Steve MacLean netted an equaliser eight minutes from time.

Argyle felt they should have gone in front early on when Krisztian Timar's close-range effort beat Radek Cerny and, although Damien Delaney cleared the ball to safety, it appeared to have crossed the line first.

And two QPR old boys then combined to threaten Cerny's goal again - Chris Barker crossing for Simon Walton, whose header flew just over the bar.

But Rangers broke the deadlock in the 16th minute as Helguson got away from Barker to meet Martin Rowlands' cross with a volley against the post - and the Icelander was first to react to the rebound, tucking it past the helpless Romain Larrieu.

The Rs then survived a handball shout against Kaspars Gorkss, but were on the wrong end of Kevin Friend's decision just before half-time as Rowlands' 20-yard drive was ruled out for offside.

Nevertheless, QPR continued to press after the break and Rowlands' free-kick zipped just wide before Patrick Agyemang blazed a one-on-one with Larrieu into the side netting.

At the other end, Cerny made saves to foil Jamie Mackie and Jim Paterson - but the Rangers keeper could do nothing when Rory Fallon's well-placed header sent MacLean through to make it 1-1.

QPR: Cerny; Ramage (Hall 81), Stewart, Gorkss, Delaney; ROWLANDS*, Mahon, Leigertwood; Cook (Ephraim 68); Agyemang (Blackstock 76), Helguson. Subs not used: Cole, Tommasi.

Att: 10,747.
