QPR boss reacts after closing Championship relegation gap on Millwall

Marti Cifuentes believes QPR have the ability to move up the Championship table after their 1-0 win at Bristol City on the weekend.

Ilias Chair’s 41st-minute strike was the difference as the west Londoners moved just a point away from safety, with Millwall occupying 21st place in the Championship table after their 2–0 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

QPR have picked up eight points from their last five outings in the second tier.

Cifuentes said: “I know we have the necessary spirit to move up the table and it was evident today.

“Our goal came from two quality players combining. Ilias Chair is already a top player for us, but I have told him he has the ability to do even greater things.

“Lucas Andersen also has a lot of quality and it was good to see them working together to create the chance.

“But every member of the team deserved credit for a tremendous performance against very good opponents.

“Bristol (City) had beaten Southampton in the week and we knew how tough it would be to come here and win.

“We worked on certain things to combat their strengths and it was important we bounced back quickly from a poor performance against Stoke.

“It sums up the Championship that Bristol (City) were so good in midweek and yet we were able to restrict them to very few chances today.

“What’s so difficult is to put together consistent performances and results – that is what we must be aiming for in our remaining games.

“Today we have been very good, but being like that for one game is not enough.”
