Following today’s clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Queens Park Rangers, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Geoff Eltringham blew the final whistle, Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo explained.

‘The first half was a very good half, with many chances and good football. The second half was differed and we have to be more compact. QPR started putting in long balls, which changed the game. They are a well organised team and have a way of football which requires a lot of defensive organisation to stop them. The result we achieved was important.’

Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway in his comparative interview explained.

‘I was very upset at half-time but the lads gave a resounding response. It is tough with a pitch that big and the confidence level of them. Their manager is excellent, the way they play is tried and tested and they have taken the club miles forward. When they pass it as nicely and well as they do, it is very difficult. I tried something and it could have worked, but we didn’t take the opportunities. We showed more than enough nous but we needed to get an equaliser.’
