QPR looked like a team again – Redknapp

QPR boss Harry Redknapp praised the character of his much-changed side as they snatched a dramatic injury-time win at Middlesbrough.

Bobby Zamora and Ravel Morrison both scored deep into stoppage time as Rangers turned one point into three with a 3-1 victory.

Redknapp made six changes after the hammering at Sheffield Wednesday in midweek and was delighted with the response at the Riverside Stadium.

He said: “It was a good result for us. It was important that we bounced back.

“We’ve been playing well enough, we just had a bad day at Sheffield Wednesday.

“I felt, even if we had drawn the game, I’d have been pleased. I thought we controlled the game, passed the ball well and looked a much better football team again.

“We had to make loads of changes but the lads who played did great.

“Yun came in at left-back and did a real solid job for us. I was really pleased with the kid. Yossi [Benayoun] scored, and Tom Carroll came back and did well.

“I was pleased with everybody, I thought it was a good performance.”

Redknapp is now hoping to cement QPR’s play-off place with a result at home to fifth-placed Wigan on Tuesday.

He said: “They’re a very strong side. They’ve still got the nucleus of that team that went to Man City and won in the Cup and deservedly so, not many teams will do that. But we’re a good side as well.”
