JOHN Eustace hailed his players’ togetherness following their stunning 4-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday afternoon, labelling them “different class”.
A brace from Tomer Hemed and goals from Darnell Furlong and Massimo Luongo guided the R’s to their biggest win of the season over a Swans team who were looking for their fourth win in a row.
“It was very pleasing,” a relaxed Eustace told www.qpr.co.uk.
“The way the lads went about their business was different class. They followed on from Wednesday’s draw at Millwall, and the boys that came in were fantastic.
“You can see the togetherness was there today from the start.”
Rangers flew out of the blocks at Loftus Road, going 2-0 up inside five minutes with a Furlong header and a Hemed strike, and Eustace admitted: “We wanted to start quick and we wanted to start bright. We set out a gameplan and it worked.”
The result sees QPR move eight points clear of the relegation zone with four games remaining, but Eustace insists their battle to avoid the drop isn’t over just yet.
“We are still in a fight,” he said. “When I took over I said that we had seven big games. We had a poor start at Norwich but to finish the week off like we did today was fantastic.
“We have got four big games to go and we certainly don’t think the season’s over. We have got a really tough game against Blackburn next Friday and that’s all we are focusing on.”
Asked about his own future as the search for Steve McClaren’s replacement continues, Eustace said: “Les asked me to help out for as long as it takes.
“The club are looking for a new manager but I’m enjoying myself and it has been a good day today. All I am thinking about is getting the lads fully prepared for the next game against Blackburn.”
