Chris Ramsey hails QPR players after victory

Published Add your comment

Queens Park Ranger finally ended their Premier League away day hoodoo last night with a 2-0 win at Sunderland.

First half goals from Leroy Fer and Bobby Zamora claimed QPR's first away win of the season at the 12th attempt which helped the Hoops climb out of the relegation zone.

Matty Philips played an instrumental role in both goals as Fer met his excellent cross to steer a bullet header into the bottom corner while Zamora connected with his pass to send a fine hooked volley into the top corner with his unfamiliar right foot.

Caretaker boss Chris Ramsey was delighted with the long overdue away scalp for Rangers.

Long time coming

As reported by the club's official site, Ramsey told told reporters: "That win is a long time coming. Tonight the boys played really, really well and I'm so pleased.

"I see a performance like that one and I wonder why it's taken us so long to get an away victory with the players that we've got.

"Regardless of what the result might have been, I knew they were going to put their bodies on the line tonight."

The only negative on a fantastic night for QPR was what looked like a worrying knee injury sustained by the influential Leroy Fer which forced him to leave the field on a stretcher.

Dream manager

However, things are looking up for the R's as they escaped the relegation zone at the expense of Burnley and Aston Villa and Tony Fernandes claims to have found his 'dream manager' to lead Rangers to safety.

Former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is being touted as the man Fernandes is referring to in the tweet above.

Whoever it is, based on last nights performance, there is plenty to work with at QPR to guide them to Premier League survival.
