‘What a top player you are’ – Many QPR fans react to key man’s Twitter message following Bristol City victory

Published

Queens Park Rangers boosted their play-off hopes last night with Yoann Barbet’s header in the third minute of stoppage time sealing all three points for Mark Warburton’s men away at Bristol City.

It looked set to be another long night for the west London outfit, who had lost their previous two league matches prior to yesterday evening’s clash at Ashton Gate, when Alex Scott opened the scoring for the hosts in the third minute.

But the R’s, perhaps happy to get away from the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium for the time being after suffering back-to-back defeats in the English capital against Stoke City and AFC Bournemouth, managed to equalise on the stroke of half-time when Charlie Austin calmly slotted home a much-welcomed penalty.

Their chances of taking all three points from the game increased further when Andy King was sent off for a second bookable offence, a red card he couldn’t complain about after holding back Stefan Johansen on the halfway line.

And despite taking their time to take advantage of their extra man, they finally did right at the end when Norwegian delivered a perfect corner for Barbet to head home, securing a crucial three points in their promotion push with rivals Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town both on a good run of form.

Failing to keep a clean sheet, the R’s backline will be hoping to put this right in their next match after remaining reasonably watertight at the back this term, with centre-back Jimmy Dunne likely to play a big part in improving their record at the heart of defence.

But did that concession early on in Bristol taint QPR supporters’ view of him? He took to Twitter after the game to toast a satisfying victory – and many fans’ verdicts on the 24-year-old were crystal clear as they responded to his post.
