QPR failed to extend their winning run as they produced one of the uneventful football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Rangers had climbed to third in the table after four consecutive wins. The result meant they are two points behind Blackburn in second with a game in hand. Swansea ended the game with a man down after Flynn Downes received his marching orders in stoppage time.
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “I just felt we lacked a bit of quality in the final third. We know we were not at our best. You’re obviously going to miss a player who plays nine times out of 10. Ilias is normally in the team and with his goals and assists, he’s a very talented boy. He’s been away but, if you look at our run for the last eight or nine games, we’re not doing badly. The boys have found a way to win games and tonight we couldn’t quite find a way to win it. But look at the results. We’ve done OK and are in a decent position and come May that could be a very good point indeed.”
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “I thought we were great. I’m really proud of the team. I asked them to come here and show courage and be the team that we want to be and they’ve done that. We showed some serious character. There was a really good mentality and a real intensity to the game. With a bit more quality in the final third, I think we could maybe have come away with three points, but it’s back-to-back clean sheets and we got the least we deserved tonight.”
