Ilias Chair scored a late winner to ensure that QPR was on the right side of one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. The game had very few chances with an out-of-form Blackburn not creating too many openings. It was a much-needed three points for QPR who were trashed by Fulham in a derby last weekend. They had managed to win just two of their last seven games while Blackburn extended their winless run to four games including three losses.
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “If some club wants to come and pay £25m for him [Chair] then great. If you’re going to sell in January it’s to a [Premier League] team that’s struggling and will spend to stay up or a team that’s pushing for promotion and they’ll spend to try and push on. So you only lose a player in January on your terms.”
Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “I genuinely sat there thinking we were going to win 1-0, and we’ve lost. We needed to score and we’ve been scoring in just about every game this season, so it’s frustrating for us that we didn’t score. We came really to frustrate and hope we could grab the points and in the end, it wasn’t to be.” he added. “We can grind results out away from home and I thought we could do that tonight. There was no need to come here and be too expansive and for it to be like a basketball game against a team that scores a lot of goals.”
