Eze has now taken his tally to nine goals from 20 league matches this season and he has been the Hoops best player so far.
And Eze's two goals was enough to earn the Loftus Road outfit all three points as they move to 14th on the table while Preston dropped out of the promotion places to seventh on the log.
