MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Don't worry, we'll get better.

โ€œNaturally Rangers consider that Dave Clement goal was superb. But from our point of view it was bloody awful.

โ€œHe picked the ball up ten yards to my right and was allowed to run half the length of the pitch before scoring and we didn't get In one tackle."

Ron Saunders.


"It was a really exciting game.

"We played well until our second goal โ€”a memorable goal then Villa took over and showed why they had reached the top of the First Division table.โ€

QPR manager Dave Sexton.
