Domingos Quinoa scored to help Barnsley produce one of the upset football scores of the weekend in the Championship. He scored in the 74th minute to help the bottom of the table within five points of safety. It was also the first win for new boss Poya Asbaghu since taking over earlier this season. It was a big blow to promotion-chasing QPR.
Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “Of course, you feel good after a victory. I think for us as well, with the results we have had this season, this win comes at a really good moment. It was a win that I felt was well deserved. I think we played well. In the first half, maybe we were a little too open, and they were allowed to have too much on the ball. I felt that coming into the second half, we adjusted that pretty well. We were much more aggressive in our pressing in the second half.”
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “It was a poor performance – as simple as that. You have to earn things out of games of football. We lacked fluidity in the first half and went in nil-nil. We knew what we had to do in the second half and, in truth, didn’t do it. We’re a team that creates chances and scores goals and today we weren’t good enough. We didn’t really hurt them. As a team, we didn’t do enough. I was more than wary of Barnsley. They’d lost seven in a row and the law of averages tells you that they’re due to win a game of football.”
