Queens Park Rangers "showed great character" - Leroy Fer

5 October 2015

Midfielder Leroy Fer hailed the character of Queens Park Rangers after their 4-3 Sky Bet Championship win over Bolton Wanderers.

In a topsy-turvy affair, the R's overturned a two-goal deficit to lead 3-2, but it took a last-gasp effort from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas to seal the points after Bolton had pegged the hosts back.

"It was a crazy game," the Dutchman told the club's official website.

"2-0 down, 3-2 up; 3-3 - and then an unbelievable feeling at the end to win it. I think we showed great character. We didn't once drop our heads."

Fer was making his first Loftus Road appearance since May after a lengthy injury lay-off, , and he capped his return with a goal to go along with strikes from Tjaronn Chery and Emmanuel-Thomas, who netted twice.

"It was nice to be back out on the pitch at Loftus Road. I was pleased to score - and at an important time too to get us back level at half-time," the 25-year-old added.

"I couldn't be happier - a goal and a win on my return in front of our fans. It's a wonderful feeling."
