Reserved Delight At Cup Progression

Reserved Delight At Cup Progression

Rangers boss Iain Dowie was delighted with his sides performance as knocked Premier League Aston Villa out of the Carling Cup, but indicated there is more to come.

The R`s were backed by a vociferous 2,500 strong support who never ceased in their encouragement for the players - and ultimately went home happy, making for what Dowie labelled 'a special night`.

'It's a special night for us - terrific,' Dowie told QPR.co.uk

'To come to a Club like this, led by a Manager like Martin O'Neill, and to win and keep a clean sheet is just unbelievable."

'Martin always manages to get the best out of his players and I'm incredibly proud that we've come here and upset the odds.'

Dowie praised his players for their performance but still indicated their is more to come from a talented crop of players,

'I looked at the team sheet and they were as big as they could be and they've got excellent set-piece delivery, so we were well aware of what we were up against."

'We were concerned that we'd have to defend well and we did that magnificently."

'To be honest, I don't think we played as well as we're capable of, in terms of keeping the ball. We gave it away a lot in important areas."

'Defensively though we were terrific and I don't think Radek has really had a top save to make.'


'I'm proud of each and every one of the lads and it's a really pleasing result." Dowie continued

'When you come to a side that can bring on a player like Gabi Agbonlahor and in my opinion they've got one of the best wingers in the game in Ashley Young, it will always cause you problems, but we coped with it really well."

'I thought we had loads of possession up until the edge of the penalty box, but we didn't use the ball well enough."

'We gave them such cheap giveaways and they've got blistering pace which could have really hurt us."

'But out defensive shape improve as the game went on and we got the desired result.'


Ultimately it was Rangers who won it with Damion Stewart`s header just after the hour mark, owing much to the creativity of Spanish starlet and Real Madrid loanee, Daniel Parejo.

'Dani's delivery for the goal was excellent,' Dowie added,
'We worked on it in training yesterday and I wasn't altogether happy with it, but to be fair to him, he's put a first class delivery in and Damion's absolutely buried it."

'It was a great delivery and a great header - worthy of winning the match in my opinion.'


Rangers now progress into Round Four against all the odds, for which the draw will be made on Saturday.
