Carver Happy With Scrappy Win

Carver Happy With Scrappy Win

Head coach John Carver admitted it was far from a vintage performance but the three points were always going to one team.

Richard Cresswell and Paul Butler got the goals which keeps the Whites in the chase for automatic promotion with 11 points separating them from second-placed Sheffield United.

Carver: 'It wasn't pretty and it was a little bit scrappy. I thought we tried to play good football but took one pass too many at times.

'Overall though, I'm delighted with the result.'

QPR boss Ian Holloway had even been forced into a last-minute deal to solve his goalkeeping crisis as Phil Barnes was thrown straight into the action little more than three hours after joining the club on a seven-day loan deal from Sheffield United.

Holloway: 'I thought my Queens Park Strangers side were terrific.

'I've never experienced anything like that. Four of our back five were new to the side but they showed me a lot.

'At times we huffed and puffed a little though. The difference for me was that their chances were crisp and concise. Then halfway through the second half they bring on Rob Hulse and Robbie Blake off the bench and that just rubs salt into the wounds.'
