Warburton savours Wallace goal in QPR cup win

QPR manager Mark Warburton savoured Lee Wallace’s stunning goal in the 5-1 thrashing of Swansea City which secured a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Jordan Hugill, who netted twice, scored with a volley, as did Josh Scowen, as the home side turned on the style in a victory which also included another goal for the in-form Bright Osayi-Samuel.

And Warburton particularly enjoyed Wallace’s volley with the left-back’s less favoured right foot.

It was the Scot’s first goal since arriving from Glasgow Rangers last summer, having previously played under Warburton for the Ibrox club.

Warburton said: “There were volleys and Jordan’s is flying in, then Josh Scowen’s is flying in.

“And to see Lee Wallace hit a right-foot shot is like Halley’s Comet – make the most of that one because it might never happen again!

“Lee Wallace with the right foot. That’s like watching Lord Lucan riding Shergar, that one. Savour the moment.

“I’m delighted for him because he’s a high-quality player but he has had to be patient because Ryan Manning has kept him out of the team. Lee has shown his quality for us in the last couple of games.”

Warburton’s side are in brilliant goalscoring form, having thrashed Swansea’s rivals Cardiff 6-1 on New Year’s Day.

He said: “I thought we played very well against a very good footballing team.

“They all did very well and most importantly they responded to the Cardiff performance with a really solid display today.

“People like Bright and Ilias Chair, who were very good against Cardiff, maintained it. The consistency has to be at the right level.”
