Football Results: Stoke City 1-0 QPR

Jacob Brown scored the only goal of the game to help Stoke City produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Despite the absence of Michael O’Neill who underwent hip replacement surgery during the week, Stoke City dashed any playoff hopes that QPR had prior to the game. Brown scored the winner in the first minute of first-half stoppage time.

Managers Reaction 

Stoke’s assistant Dean Holden: “When we scored the goal, it was the least we deserved going in 1-0 up at half-time. We went in with 16 crosses, seven corners, and 10 shots, which was pleasing. We knew what they were going to come with; it was win or bust for them. But we restricted them to very little and I think we controlled the game without the ball in the second half. Overall, it was good to get a 90-minute performance at home, which we’ve not done enough of. It was a pleasing day all around, but the big frustration is that it’s five wins from seven and it’s too little, too late.”

QPR’s Mark Warburton: “I’m very disappointed with the first-half performance; we looked like a team trying not to win. We were better in the second half, but still two or three gears below where we should be. I talk a lot about having no regrets in what you do, and if you leave the pitch with no regrets then you can hold your head high. Maybe they need to feel that regret. There’s still a lot to play for. We have a responsibility to the QPR fans, each and every one of them. When I hear people say they’re meaningless games, you’re a pro playing in front of people who have paid money to see you play so I can’t have that.”
