MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Two minutes after the re-start Kevin McLeod capitalised from a defensive mix-up between Olof Mellberg and Thomas Sorensen to give QPR a lifeline."

*BBC Sport*
Wednesday, 22 September, 2004

Aston Villa survived a hard examination at home to Championship outfit QPR but eventually made it to the third round.

Darius Vassell opened the scoring from a Lee Hendrie pass, before striker Juan Pablo Angel doubled the lead with a header from a Nolberto Solano cross

Two minutes after the re-start Kevin McLeod capitalised from a defensive mix-up between Olof Mellberg and Thomas Sorensen to give QPR a lifeline.

But a superb Solano free-kick put the game beyond doubt.
