Football Results: Preston 2-1 QPR

QPR’s playoff hopes suffered a huge blow as Preston produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Emil Riis opened the scoring in the 42nd minute before Cameron Archer doubled their advantage in the 50th minute. Andre Gray grabbed a consolation goal for the visitors from the penalty spot in the third minute of stoppage time.

Managers Reaction 

Preston’s Ryan Lowe: “I’m pleased for Emil, he will definitely claim it (the first goal). I’m pleased because of the hard work he’s put in of late. We should have had a couple more, maybe it’s just a matter of getting the head up, and sliding it to your mate to score, but I get there are a lot of lads who want to impress. That’s what Cam does, he takes you into areas where he chops onto his left foot, and he’s got that touch and little burst of pace. I thought he could have possibly had a hat-trick, but it doesn’t matter – you don’t get the same number of points as goals you’ve scored.”

QPR’s Mark Warburton: “There are different scenarios at the end of the season, I can’t control all of them. We have to win all five of our remaining games, I know they come thick and fast, but that’s the nature of it. We’ll do the best job possible, see where it takes us – that’s all we can do. Since I was 18 years of age, I’ve been in a job that involves pressure so I’m fairly used to that. I’m very privileged to be involved in football – I’ve got no doubts moving forward. If ever I was caught slacking, I’d resign before I was sacked, but I know that’s not the case.”
