Chris Ramsey delighted with Queens Park Rangers’ battling qualities

20 August 2015

Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey has praised the fighting spirit of his squad after they came from 2-0 down to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 at Molineux.

The hosts had taken a two-goal advantage in the match through goals from Benik Afobe and Kevin McDonald, but Ramsey’s men struck back with a Charlie Austin header and a Matt Phillips double securing the three points.

It was Rangers' first league win of the new campaign, and Ramsey was delighted with the way his charges applied themselves.

“To a man, I thought the battling spirit the boys showed was fantastic,” he said to QPR’s official site.

“We just kept doing what we do, even at 2-0 down. We've got a style of play and we will live or die by it.

“We've just got to keep believing in what we practice and preach every day on the training pitch.

“I'm disappointed with the two goals we conceded – and that’s something we need to address – but the final result is all-important and the lads deserve a lot of praise.

“The added time was the longest five minutes of my life, but if we play in that style for the rest of the season I’m confident we will win more games than we lose.”

The win moved QPR up to 13th in the Sky Bet Championship table - to view the current standings click here.
