Warnock praises spirit of players

Next Story

QPR manager Neil Warnock paid tribute to the "Dunkirk spirit" of his players after they snatched a dramatic draw at Derby.

Rangers looked certain to suffer their first npower Championship defeat of the season when they trailed 2-0 to goals from Kris Commons and James Bailey. But stoppage-time goals from Patrick Agyemang and Jamie Mackie stunned the Pride Park faithful to earn the visitors an unlikely point which keeps them top of the table.

Warnock said: "It feels like a win when you score so late in the game."

He continued: "We have got seven or eight new players and it does take a while so how we can be among the favourites (for promotion) I haven't got a clue.

"I think we are a sixth to 10th team at the moment although results like this do help with morale. It helps build confidence.

"Last year, we had eight loan players so we didn't have what I call Dunkirk spirit that we showed here."
