Ollie Holloway took his QPR team to Wales on Saturday but ended up returning to London with their tail between their legs.

Match report

Post-match reaction

‘We were doing fine when we got in front, we looked pretty comfortable and then it changed when we conceded the first goal, the manner of it, the timing of it. We could have dealt with it better.

‘Unfortunately they forced us into a mistake and it knocked the stuffing out of us, got the crowd up. They then go and score from a set-play.

‘On the balance of play, that’s as good a Cardiff team as I’ve ever seen. It’s going for them at the minute – they’re making it go for them. They looked a real solid unit.

‘The Bluebirds will be buzzing tonight but we weren’t that far off them.’

‘Obviously I’m pleased. We made hard work of it at times but I was delighted with the way we played.

‘We showed a lot of character, played some good stuff on the front foot, created some good chances. I thought [QPR goalkeeper Alex] Smithies was brilliant.

‘It’s a happy place and I’m really glad we’ve got two weeks off now [for the international break] without a press conference.’

Perhaps the international break will give Ollie has his merry men time to prepare for our next Championship game, Saturday 9 September, at home against Ipswich Town.

Phew, this could be a long season!
