Hughes hails goalscorer Cisse

Published Add your comment

QPR manager Mark Hughes praised the impact of substitute Djibril Cisse after the Frenchman scored a dramatic late winner against Stoke to move the club a step closer to Barclays Premier League survival.

In an uneventful game that seemed to be petering out into a scoreless draw, Cisse came off the bench to bury an 89th-minute winner. The Frenchman has scored five goals and been sent off twice in his seven QPR appearances, and Hughes has been happy to deal with the dismissals if the former Liverpool striker's goals help the club survive.

"I'm delighted for Djibril," he said. "We left it late. We played a little bit stop-start and it was difficult to replicate the momentum we've generated in recent weeks. You hope that something will happen and thankfully it did."
