Harry Redknapp was pleased with his side’s resilience after Kieron Dyer’s late equaliser rescued Queens Park Rangers against West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup third round.

The Baggies had taken a 79th-minute lead at Loftus Road, when Shane Long scored from 12 yards. But Dyer earned the Hoops a replay with his left-footed shot in the 91st minute.

“It was important we didn’t get beat because losing is a bad habit,” Redknapp told QPR’s website. “I was pleased the lads kept battling away. We hung in there.

“Maybe the Chelsea game knocked a bit out of a few of the lads – one or two looked tired – but credit to them, they kept going.

“It keeps that momentum going from Chelsea and hopefully we can continue that against Tottenham.”

Redknapp also reserved special praise for Dyer, who netted his first goal since 2007.

“I’m pleased for Kieron,” he added. “It was important for him to get 90 minutes under his belt.

“He’s had a lot of injuries and it was great to see him back on the scoresheet today.”
