Instant Reactions - QPR v Aston Villa (18/11/17)

Following yesterday's clash between Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Queens Park Rangers hosted Aston Villa at Loftus Road for a 3pm kick off on Saturday November 18 and Jamie Mackie gave the hosts the advantage as he found the net in the 18th minute to open the scoring, but Albert Adomah had the visitors back on level terms three minutes into first half stoppage time. Adomah then gifted Villa the win as he completed his brace in the 58th minute.

QPR do fall to back to defeats, but Villa have now won as many away games as they did in 2016/17 and came from behind to win a game for the first time since August 2013.



Smithies, Baptiste, Lynch, Robinson, Cousins (Washington 63), Scowen, Luongo (Manning 45), Freeman, Bidwell, Smith, Mackie (Sylla 72).


Furlong, Wszolek, Lumley, Wheeler.

Aston Villa:

Johnstone, Hutton, Chester, Samba, Taylor, Snodgrass (Jedinak 81), Whelan, Hourihane, Adomah (Bjarnason 90+1), Onomah (de Laet 86), Davis.


Lansbury, Grealish, Steer, O'Hare.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Darren England blew the final whistle, Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway explained.

'Villa started the second half brighter because they'd got that little tonic. Once we went one behind, it was then very tough for us. We've got to keep believing, because some of that stuff was excellent - the way we got it to our wing-backs and played down the side. I feel we played well and I'll take that performance. We just need to capitalise on the chances we created. I'm sure we had at least as many as them, if not more.'

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce in his comparitive interview explained.

'The reaction when QPR scored was great and I thought we looked a very decent team, especially at the top end of the pitch. The way we played pleased me. We played it forward, were energetic and looked a threat. We did very well.'
