We did well, but fair play to QPR

Speaking to the post match press conference, the gaffer said; "I'm really proud of them and I'm a little bit emotional now if I'm honest because I thought the lads gave everything they could to win a football game against a team who are flying high in the Champ. It’s not nice to lose on penalties of course but fair play to QPR for winning it.

"I thought first half we were the better side although they created the better chances, so in fairness I thank my goalkeeper - who kept us in a couple of times - and there were a couple of last ditch tackles. They just looked more of a threat than we did because I don't think we created enough.

"I thought second half we were a lot better and the longer the game went on, the fitter and stronger we were. We made changes and went for it."

"I was disappointed that it went into extra time. I thought in extra time I thought we were really good and really disciplined. To get a goal was good but we just didn’t have enough to hold on.

"The subs all came on and had a really good impact and I was really pleased with everyone who performed today."

"I'm disappointed for the lads because I've asked them to make memories because their careers are really short. It would have been great if Woody's lads saw him play against Tottenham or Icky's kids saw him play at Liverpool."

“All in all, the lads have done really well and are in good form. Both teams were attacking and it felt like we had a corner and then they had a corner. But, again, fair play to QPR.”
