Mark Hughes praised QPR striker Djibril Cisse after he marked his debut with a stunning goal in the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa.

Cisse only received clearance to play 90 minutes before kick-off but needed just 12 minutes to score the opening goal. A Stephen Warnock own goal doubled QPR's lead but Villa snatched a point thanks to Darren Bent's 100th Premier League goal and Charles N'Zogbia's first for the club.

Hughes said: "I thought Cisse was excellent and everyone can understand now why I wanted to bring him to the club. We only got clearance for him to play as I was walking into the entrance at Villa Park when a text came through. But he is going to be vital for us. He was bright, intelligent and powerful."
