More on Bristol City 1-1 QPR

As mentioned, I thought I would try something different yesterday by attempting to write a brief report of Rangers excellent point at Bristol City, whilst on the way home from Ashton Gate and no SB, it wasn't me doing the driving, hehe. The thing with doing that is, that there are no pictures etc and also, finer detail maybe missed. So, by now we have all reflected, read the papers and seen the Championship on ITV, so there is little more I can fill you in on but a few pics and bits and pieces...

On the result, R's Boss, Iain Dowie said;

I thought we shaded it in the first half. I know it's only a point but it's an important point. It was two good football sides and they'll cause you problems but other than Dele Adebola's header we were fairly comfortable. I thought our defending was outstanding. We know we have quality players, but you also need resilience in the Championship.


The sending off of Emmanuel Ledesma;

I don't know why he got booked in the first half. He throws the ball to the man; the man lets it go and its Ledesma's fault. I'll be having a look at the video. Their player deliberately jumped out of the way of the ball to make it look worse than it was. After that Emmanuel showed his inexperience with a silly tackle to get himself sent off.


And on striker and Lofty's Man of the Match, Dexter Blackstock's performance;

Dexter has been on his deathbed all week but he did very well and worked very hard up top on his own.


QPR: Cerny, Ramage, Stewart, Connolly, Delaney, Ledesma, Leigertwood, Mahon, Cook (Rowlands 54), Parejo (Agyemang 75), Blackstock. Subs: Camp, Gorkss, Balanta.

    .. lets hope a look at the video gets the red card repealed... the lad is on fire at the moment and a ban at the moment isn't what he needs.

    well done lofty
    on trying something new i like this weeks report as you gave us the facts. then you had time to add pic's which are great..
    on the game 1 point away from home from side in top 6 last year is ok.
    If we can keep going like this top 10 could be on the cards.

    aikido - haven't seen a replay as yet, but it seemed harsh at the time, so here's hoping...

    thank you Corp. To be honest, I wasn't overly pleased with it but will stick with it if it's popular. I was thrilled with the draw yesterday and indeed, the start to the season, long may it continue. Just a shame now there is an International break eh?
