Wolves 0 QPR 3: We played ‘cracking’ football – Warnock
QPR boss hails the performance of his new signings after the Londoners overcame Wolves at Moulineux
Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock was delighted with his side’s “cracking” display as the Londoners racked up a three-goal victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Moulineux on Saturday.
Warnock was ecstatic with performance of his new signings as skipper Joey Barton and Shaun Wright-Phillips starred for the visitors.
“We played some cracking football. It’s pleasing because since the new players have come to the club, they have fitted in,” said Warnock. “You could see we were enjoying it today.”
And the QPR manager vowed to continue his side’s attack-minded approach throughout the season, regardless of the opposition.
“We’re going to do that everywhere. We’ll get beat here and there, but I’ve not got this team to sit back and get a point,” Warnock said. “We’re going to go for it – if we get beat, so what?”
QPR raced into an eighth-minute lead when Wright-Phillips and Barton combined, with the former Newcastle midfielder scuffing his shot past Wayne Hennessey.
Alejandro FaurlÃn added a second two minutes later when Wolves failed to clear a cross and QPR midfielder smashed home a half-volley.
McCarthy made two early second half substitutions but the home side failed to improve as Wright-Phillips continued to sparkle on the right wing, while Barton dominanted at the heart of the midfield.
And DJ Campbell sealed the victory for Warnock’s men in the 87th minute. The substitute converted Wright-Phillips’ cross after the former Manchester City winger had beaten two players on a meandering run.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy accepted the blame for his side’s “bad performance” pointing to a slow start.
“We never got going,” said McCarthy after the game. “We were 2-0 down before we had turned round. Apart from Wayne Hennessey in goal it was a bad performance from everyone – including me.”
He added: “I could have taken anyone off at half-time it was that bad.”
