Andre Gray scored a late winner as QPR produced one of the comeback football results of the weekend in the Championship. Tom Lawrence opened the scoring for the home side to help them go into the break with the lead. The visitors came out of the break the better side and were rewarded when Chris Willock equalized in the 50th minute. With two minutes left of regulation time, Gray took a couple of touches before firing home to give the Rangers all three points.
Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “I feel, tonight, we got what we deserved. We’re better than that, we know that. There wasn’t a lack of effort, we were sloppy on the ball and lost it too easily. We started really well and got the goal early on but from there, really, everything we worked on, we didn’t do well enough.” he added. “At half time, I said to the lads that we were lucky to come in 1-0 up, that it was a wake-up call and that we needed to be better and not make so many silly mistakes. I didn’t think we deserved anything tonight.”
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “We looked much better in the second half. We lacked intensity in the first half; we were tentative and lacked any real pace and purpose about our play. We gave away a soft goal and they never really threatened us much after that, respectfully.” he added. “It was pleasing because we had to improve. It’s about that belief, that character and, for us, that was a really important win tonight.”
