An injury-time winner from Shaun Maloney rescues a point for Wigan.
QPR were denied a vital three points by a last minute equaliser from Wigan in this relegation battle.
Bobby Zamora was sent off for the home side after just 20 minutes for a high foot on Jordi Gomez.
Yet it was QPR who took the lead, although they did have to wait until the 85th minute for Loic Remy’s breakthrough.
It seemed that it would be an extremely important three points earned for Harry Redknapp’s men until Shaun Maloney spoiled the party.
The Wigan midfielder curled his 94th minute free-kick into the top corner of Julio Cesar’s goal and gave his side another point as they fight to stay in the Premier League.
For QPR it is a disappointing result as they remain seven points off safety with just six games left.
The Latics are still in the bottom three despite the draw but are now level on points with 17th placed Sunderland as they lost at Chelsea.
Wigan do have a game in hand over the Black Cats although it is a difficult away tie at Manchester City.
For the Hoops, staying in the top division is looking more and more unlikely as they face a tricky away matches with Everton and Reading in the coming weeks.
Wigan meanwhile will have to wait a little longer for their next chance in the Premier League as they face the prospect of an FA Cup semi-final against Millwall on Saturday.
