Video: QPR home 1993

Mark Hughes may have been the opposition manager on Easter Sunday 2012, but he was the matchwinner for United against QPR at Old Trafford back in 1993.

The Welsh hitman secured the points for Sir Alex's team in the Double-winning season but the Premier League leaders had to come from behind to avoid a surprise defeat. Eric Cantona cancelled out Bradley Allen's early opener and, four minutes later, Hughes hit the decisive strike.

Allen stretched to convert a Les Ferdinand header after the powerful centre-forward had already tested Peter Schmeichel to silence the home fans. United needed Cantona to set up the rescue act, the influential Frenchman going solo before finding the net with a low drive off the inside of a post. The Reds piled forward and, when Roy Keane nodded on a Lee Sharpe corner, Hughes pounced to fire in and complete the comeback.
