'If It's Football, It's Vital'

QPR-Watford: Reaction

Two wins on the bounce for Watford and the Hornet's look like the side that started the season on fire.

The only downer for the Hornet's was the injury sustained by midfielder Stephen McGinn who was struck down by three beer bottles and left with a cut by the eye and concussion:

'I'm not sure what happened but Stephen has a large cut, his eye is closed and he's got concussion.

'The fourth official told me three bottles of beer were thrown from the top tier.'


The gaffer didn't want one sour note to ruin his sides evening and was quick to look to the positives of a fine victory:

'I'm delighted with way we played.

'We came up against the league leaders who have an experienced manager and experienced players, and they are a team I think will be promoted.'


R's manager Neil Warnock also looked to put a positive spin on the game, eluding to the shorts he has worn throughout the Hoops blistering start to the league campaign:

'Thank God - I can have my long johns under my tracksuit now for the winter.

'It was obviously disappointing. But if you'd told me we'd have got to December unbeaten I wouldn't have believed you.'


However the veteran Rangers manager was not happy with referee Darren Deadman's display:

'For the handball, the referee was in a great position but Eustace has been too clever.

'Then we are losing 2-0, we regrouped at half-time and changed a few things and we get an offside like that!

'But all credit to Watford - we could have been beaten by 10. We'll have to take it on the chin.

'The players have got their Christmas party tomorrow. I told them not to think about tonight but to take the league table with them instead.'

Have to say, you guys were great on Friday night - we were pants! Fair play to you but, ironically, thanks! We've been burdened by that "unbeaten record" tag which you have kindly now removed!!! Here's hoping both QPR and Watford have a great rest of the season - whatever it may bring. (But can we now beat you at your place, please, just to even things up a little?!!!)

Haha! Thanks. If we hadn't been so wasteful then it could've been a lot more, but equally Scott Loach made 2/3 decent stops. I think you will still go up though, you've got a great blend of experience and exciting younger players and Neil Warnock has bags off the stuff himself.
