Warnock happy with Robins draw

Published Add your comment

Neil Warnock was in ebullient mood after seeing his QPR side create club history with a 1-1 draw against Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

An 84th-minute equaliser from substitute Patrick Agyemang meant Warnock's men extended their unbeaten run in the npower Championship to 13 games, one better than their team of 1947/48 managed. Jon Stead had fired rock bottom City ahead after 16 minutes with a 20-yard shot that flashed in off the underside of the crossbar.

The manager said: "I've been waiting a long time to manage a side like this and I'm enjoying every minute of it. We had to work really hard for a result and kept going right until the end. I wasn't thinking about the record, just getting another point."

He added: "I've been on the wrong end of some controversial moments against Bristol City so I think I was due a late goal. I loved signalling 1-1 to their fans as I left the field because they always give me a hot reception.

"We haven't won our last few games, but eight victories and five draws is hardly a crisis. You always relish it when your team are top of the table and life is pretty good at the moment.

"I felt it was a fair result to a very entertaining game, Bristol played on the break like the away side, but that was understandable in their position."
