After seeing his Rangers side slip to a third straight defeat, Gary Waddock told the official QPR website what he though of Burnley's Andy Gray and the defeat at Turf Moor.
'Andy Gray is a goalscorer of Premiership quality, who sticks the ball in the back of the net.
'He's been there and seen it and done it and today he had an opportunity and took it - that's Premiership quality.'
Despite the defeat Waddock praised the attitude of his players.
'I was dissapointed with the result, but not with the attitude of the players.
'We paid for the one lapse in concentration that allowed Gray the time and space to score.'
Steve Cotterill spoke to the official Burnley website after the match. He was pleased with the win and especially Alan Mahon's contribution.
'It was a good result for us on a bumpy pitch and very windy conditions, it was difficult for both sides,' he said.
'We know how the wind can spoil any game and it was difficult for both sets of lads today and they both worked hard.
'You could say we're both not going down or going up, but we both tried hard to put on a decent game.
'We had to be patient really and sometimes you have to wait, but when you're the home team you've got to make the play, try to pass the ball and be the best team and score goals.
'We ended up making a change from two up front to one up front and I know that sounds strange, but I felt we had to make that change and monopolise the ball a bit more.
'It gave us that and we were hoping we could get Alan Mahon on the ball in those areas and we were hoping he could slide one in for the strikers.
'It worked today, but on another day it may not have worked.'
The performance of Mahon saw him awarded the man-of-the-match award and Cotterill agreed.
'You've got to have the players to execute it and in Alan Mahon, we've got one, an absolute gem.
'He was quality all-round and he is the jewell in our crown.
'The goal was good and we could have had an even better goal after that with some fantastic passing, but I thought we mastered the pitch in the second half and the crowd were great because they didn't get impatient with it and it paid off in the end.'
