Gary Waddock gives his assesment after watching his Rangers side take a point from a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough on Saturday.
Speaking to the official QPR website, he said:
'We fought with our lives. They threw everything at us, but we didn't cave in.
'We showed great character to come from a goal down and it's a very good point in the end.
'Credit has to go to the players. They've been great and they deserve all the praise that comes their way.''
'They stuck together today and never gave up throughout the 90 minutes.
'It was a great goal from Birch and the timing was fantastic. It changed the team-talk somewhat and although we had to defend with our lives in the second half, we did so superbly.
'We made a point of the pitch and the conditions in our team-talk. We knew it wasn't going to be pretty but we dug in and got a creditable point.''
Waddo saved special praise for veteran keeper Paul Jones, saying: 'Jonah (Paul Jones) made another number of fantastic saves and the back four in front of him defended superbly. It was wave after wave of attack at times, but we coped and that shows great resilience and character.''
