'If It's Football, It's Vital'

DRFC Bond gives Rovers credit after defeat

Queens Park Rangers assistant manager Kevin Bond admitted Doncaster Rovers were the better side after the home side claimed a last minute winner at the Keepmoat.

Rangers, who boasted seven internationals in their starting line-up, were odds on to take the points from Rovers, who came into the game on the back of a disappointing defeat at Charlton Athletic in midweek.

A crippling injury list is also taking its toll on Rovers but they showed character as they came from behind to claim a crucial three points in their battle to pull away from the relegation places and Bond admitted Rovers were the better side in the second half.

Speaking on the BBC Website, Bond said, 'We weren't happy with the way we played in the second half but you can't take anything away from Doncaster.

'We expected a reaction from Rovers after the interval but we thought that if we weathered the storm the game would open up to our advantage.

'I don't think we did well enough to prevent the equaliser and, in fairness, Doncaster were the better side after that.'


Charlie Austin had given Rangers the lead just before half time but goals from Theo Robinson and Paul Quinn earned the points for Rovers, who have now lost just one of their last four games despite their growing injury list.
