Ariel enjoying home comforts at Loftus Road

QPR midfielder Ariel Borysiuk believes Rangers ‘100% deserved’ Tuesday night’s 1-0 win against Bristol City – and is hopeful the victory will kick-start an improved run of form for the R’s at Loftus Road.

The triumph, sealed by Idrissa Sylla’s 75th minute goal, was Rangers’ first at home since the opening day of the season.

"It was important to get last night’s win at Loftus Road,” Borysiuk told

"We deserved the win 100%.

"Unfortunately we only managed to score just one goal, when I thought we deserved more – but the win was the most important thing on the night.

"We're delighted with the three points – especially for the fans.”

Borysiuk was instrumental in Rangers’ victory, helping the R’s win a key midfield battle against the Robins, and in turn providing a platform for the hosts to create chances aplenty in the second period, which culminated in Sylla’s winner 15 minutes from time.

"We started very positively from the first minute,” said the Polish international.

"We know our record at Loftus Road hasn't been good this season, but it is something we want to improve on.

"The home games, in the Championship especially, are so important, because you know when you go away from home that every game will be incredibly hard-fought.

"Last night, we really showed what we can do, especially in the second half when we had a lot of possession and in turn created a lot of good chances.

"Finally, when Sylla scored to break through, I thought we looked good and saw out the win very well.”

He added: "We know Sylla can finish.

"Massimo's cross was excellent and when we can provide Sylla with chances like that one, we are always confident he will score goals.

"It was just what we needed – turning our territorial dominance into a lead, which we were really pleased to turn into a win.”

Next up for QPR is a trip to Hillsborough, the home of Sheffield Wednesday, on Saturday – and Borysiuk is demanding more of the same from him and his team-mates, who are now unbeaten in five matches in the Sky Bet Championship.

"We are unbeaten in five games, which is good – but we must try to push on now,” he said.

"We don't have too much time to think about this game – we must focus on Sheffield Wednesday.

"It will be another tough game, but we have some momentum with us.

"The atmosphere in the squad is good. We feel we can kick on and improve.”

We deserved the win 100%.
