Ollie's pride at Hull comeback

QPR boss Ian Holloway admitted he was a proud man following Rangers' comeback victory against Hull City on Saturday afternoon.

Late goals from substitutes Matt Smith (74) and Idrissa Sylla (91) won it for the hosts, who earlier trailed to Jarrod Bowen's first half goal.

Holloway, whose side have now won all three of their home games in all competitions this season, told www.qpr.co.uk: "I couldn't be more proud of those boys.

"It was a pulsating game and I thought our performance over the 90 minutes got the result it deserved in the end.

"Thankfully we came out on top and all the boys' hard-work and effort was rewarded."

He added: "I'm so proud of the group.

"The way we kept the ball out at the end shows you the commitment of this group.

"It was real body on the line stuff.

"Perchy summed us up, carrying on when he was clearly injured.

"The changes we made worked.

"We got the two big men on up top and sometimes you've got to go a little bit back to front.

"We got it right today. The lads are buzzing in there right now."

Holloway also provided a personal update on Kazenga LuaLua, who played today despite the passing of his father just yesterday.

He said: "It's been a tough few days for LuaLua. He lost his father yesterday.

"Pav wasn't 100 per-cent fit either so I wanted Kaz to play and he wanted to play.

"It takes huge character to want to play after something like that so I'm delighted for Kaz.

"We're all thinking of Kaz and his family tonight.”

We got it right today. The lads are buzzing in there right now.
