DJIBRIL Cisse was in positive mood following QPR’s 1-1 draw at Norwich City on Saturday.
Bobby Zamora’s 19th-minute strike earned the R’s a point and also spared the striker’s blushes in the process, with the former Fulham man smashing home the loose ball after Cisse’s penalty miss.
Canaries striker Simeon Jackson had earlier given the hosts the lead.
Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, Cisse said: “It was a good response from us. A point away from home is always a positive result.
“The message from the manager was clear and simple. We knew that last weekend (against Swansea) wasn’t good for us and things had to change.
“We had to improve – and quick, because we need some points. A draw was not a bad result at all.”
On the subject of the penalty – awarded after Sebastien Bassong was adjudged to have felled Cisse – he added: “I thought it was a penalty.
“There was contact. Then it’s up to the referee to decide. I thought it was the right decision.
“It was a good save from the keeper, but luckily enough Bobby reacted quickly and scored. If he hadn’t, I would have been really upset with myself.
Cisse continued: “We lost last week and now we’ve drawn. That’s an improvement.
“We’re trying to build a team as fast as possible, but we don’t want to lose too many points.
“We’re on our way now.”
