QPR assistant manager John Eustace shared his delight for Ossie Kakay, whose first-ever league goal for the Super Hoops sealed a 2-0 victory over Stoke City in the Sky Bet Championship.
Charlie Austin’s 17th-minute strike on his 100th Rangers start set the R’s on their way, before Kakay finished off a superb team move in the 70th minute to rubberstamp a third straight away win.
On the subject of Kakay – who joined the club’s academy at the age of eight – Eustace told www.qpr.co.uk: “You could see how pleased everyone was for Ossie to get that goal, even the subs and the guys at the side of the pitch.
“He’s such a good, honest player who has a fantastic attitude. And he’s a model player for the club.
“He’s come through the system and everyone’s proud of him. That’ll help him finish off what’s been a good season for him.”
Eustace took charge of the team at the bet365 Stadium following knee surgery for boss Mark Warburton.
He added: “I’ve spoken to the gaffer and he was obviously very pleased with the performance.
“What pleased me was the way the boys stuck together when we weren’t as fluid as we wanted to be. In the end, we kept a clean sheet against a really tough team.
“Full credit to the back five – they put their bodies on the line. They should be really pleased to keep a clean sheet here because this is a tough place to come and get one.
“We also scored two really good goals – one as a result of the shape work we’ve been doing all week to set traps, and for the second goal we broke on the transition with lots of pace and power.
“One full-back started the move and the other one finished it. That’s really pleasing.
“The lads worked ever so hard this week and it was nice to see it come right on the pitch.”
