Pic: This QPR fan's dog ate his play-off final tickets but Charlie Austin stepped in to save the day

A QPR fan was devastated to come home and find out his dog has eaten his play-off final tickets (seriously), but up stepped Charlie Austin to be the hero of the hour.

We've all used that classic in school, 'Sorry sir, the dog ate my homework.' Just me then? Well, this guy's dog ate his coveted tickets for the play-off final between QPR and Derby County this weekend. He arrived home from work to see that the dog had got to the mail before he did and well..this happened...

QPR then responded to tell the fan to come to the box office where he would have his tickets reprinted.

The fan's brother sent this rather epic picture to him after the saga...
