Martin O’Neill was doubtless as furious as the away fans when the two-goal lead was sacrificed in the only spell of the game when Sunderland were not dominant. Luckily, it lasted only 10 minutes and he ended up applauding a deserved second victory in three games in charge, while we could all laugh at Neil Warnock’s absurd claim that QPR were the better side …
It was a big win for us in the end.
We deserved to win, we scored three goals away from home and it seems as though we have had to win the game twice tonight.
At 2-0 we were in a great position. I think after the referee went off due to injury, for a moment or two, we started to get carried away with ourselves.
We conceded the two goals; but we fought back and deserved the win.
I’m delighted with the team; delighted with their character and performance and obviously that is augmented by the tremendous support of the crowd.
That’s twice now they’ve made the long journey down to the capital – on Sunday and again tonight. It’s remarkable and let me tell you, really appreciated.
It meant a lot to me [the winning goal] – it was great. It’s fantastic to win, a game at 2-2 is in the balance, but we fought back and won the game.
We had a number of chances a 2-2 but their goalkeeper pulled off some great saves, particularly the one from Craig Gardner, which I thought was in.
But we got the winning goal and that makes for a nice trip home.
All the best,
