Neil Warnock not getting carried away after Cardiff win

| 29.11.2010

QPR boss Neil Warnock insists his players will be keeping their feet on the ground despite their victory over title rivals Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Hoops came from a goal down to record a 2-1 win over the Welsh side thanks to goals from Kaspars Gorkss and Abel Taarabt. The victory has brought QPR in to odds on favourites to win the Championship at 4/5.

Despite beating Cardiff – a win that puts them five points ahead of the Bluebirds in second and eight ahead of Swansea in third – Warnock is determined to remain focused on the upcoming games.

He said: “It was a great game. It was two teams playing end-to-end stuff, which is what football should be about. And the atmosphere was unbelievable.

“It was a great goal by Adel but I have to say that Kaspars Gorkss was superb at the back apart from the mistake for their goal, and the whole spine of my team were excellent.

“Shaun Derry was magnificent in midfield and the spine of Paddy Kenny in goal, Matt Connolly at the back, Derry and Rob Hulse were great. I thought it was Hulse’s best game for us.

“We won’t be getting carried away. You don’t win anything in November, but the points are great to have.”

The Hoops’ next game is against a Hull side who have found some form in recent weeks and haven’t lost in four games.

However, it’s hard to see the Tigers getting anything out of the visit of Warnock’s men who – along with Manchester United – are the only undefeated side in the English football league this season.
