Jim Magilton was quick to praise the Queens Park Rangers players and supporters following the slender defeat away to Chelsea last night.
The R’s gaffer spoke to QPR.co.uk giving special credit to the 5,900 supporters that populated the Shed End.
‘That was first class support tonight – great fanaticism,” said Jim.
‘They were first class from start to finish and I can’ wait to get back to Loftus Road on Saturday to hear them cheer us on again.’
The former Ipswich boss hailed his QPR side, and was immensely proud of their performance against Premier League leaders, Chelsea.
‘I’m immensely proud,” continued Magilton.
‘We pushed them really close tonight and the lads can leave here with their heads held high.
‘It’s another step in the right direction for us.
‘I feel we had opportunities to really ask them more questions that we did at times. We lacked a little bit of belief in the final third, but we’re making great strides and long may that continue.
‘If we can maintain consistency, we can be as good as anyone else in the division – we proved we’re a very, very good side tonight.’
Queens Park Rangers have a couple of days to prepare for a crucial Championship game against Barnsley on Saturday with Mark Robins’ side rejuvenated following his arrival.
Judging by Rangers’ previous displays it is a matter of time before they pick up their first home win and get behind the side at home.
