QPR manager Neil Warnock was delighted with their narrow win over Doncaster that moves his team another step closer to promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Rangers secured a slender 1-0 win at the Keepmoat Stadium thanks to Hogan Ephraim's strike two minutes into the second half. The London club are now nine points clear at the top of the npower Championship and Warnock was pleased his players kept the momentum going.

He said: "I thought we stuck at it and everyone contributed in what was a good team performance. Doncaster is a difficult place to come so to go away with three points before the international break is a great result for us."

He continued: "The fans were tremendous and they can travel home happy and content after the way we played."

Rangers have looked certainties for promotion throughout the campaign and another superb defensive display helped them snuff out Doncaster. But Warnock is refusing to take promotion for granted, insisting plenty more work is required.

"Doncaster had their moments but we kept on the front foot as much as we could and I couldn't have asked for more,'' he continued. "I just felt we were ready for it and once we got our noses in front I couldn't see them scoring.

"I'd love to win the next five games and wrap it all up but I'm sure there will be a few twists and turns before the end of the season."

Defeat left Doncaster assistant manager Richard O'Kelly frustrated.

He said: "They are running away with the Championship but I think we matched them apart from the opening 10 minutes - and one mistake cost us the game.

"The first goal was always going to be crucial because when they get their noses in front it's hard to peg them back. They know what they're doing and they shut up shop and did it really well."
