George Burley was delighted to see Saints finish strongly and leave with all three points.
Saints pleased all 3000 Saints fans that travelled to London scoring two late goals, from Rasiak and Wright-Phillips to seal the victory.
10 minutes from to Rasiak scored his 19th goal of the season. Then substitute Wright-Phillips latched onto McGoldrick's through ball to complete the win.
Saints did get a lucky break as Rasiak's goal stood despite a possible foul on the keeper. Whilst minutes later ex-saint Dexter Blackstock had an almost identical goal ruled out four minutes later.
Burley said: 'I thought they were both fouls on the keeper to be honest. Sometimes you get them and sometimes you don't and I felt we deserved it today after being denied a blatant penalty.'
'You have to trust that luck evens itself out over the season. Nine times out of ten The Referee would have diserllowed Greg's goal but we got the rub of the green.'
'Their goal was a foul as Kelvin got knocked out of the way when he went to gather the ball. But in my case we kept going and desereved the win over 90 minutes.'
'It's never easy playing QPR on a tight pitch and the first half was a bit scrappy. The I moved Licka wide and put Viafara into the middle and this added more bite to the midfield.'
Burley continued 'I put on two substitutes for the last ten minutes and the game opened up a bit. McGoldrick played a great ball through to Bradley, who was cool infront of goal, and finished well.'
'He and Jones have got 15 goals between them and Greg has 19 so we have good options upfront.'
It is a relief to get the win especially after dropping points last week, but we have to keep it going, nobody is going to give you anything in this league. You have to earn the right and it is still very tight at the moment.'
