The debrief: QPR away

Lee Johnson and Matty Taylor gave their views following City's Sky Bet Championship victory against QPR.


  • The head coach felt City were the better side on Tuesday night
  • He saw "11 warriors" from his side on the pitch in what he described as a "tough away win"
  • Johnson said how delighted he was for his "pest" Matty Taylor, adding his striker "ran up the sides and harried QPR's defenders"
  • City showed their pedigree in attack and still have a physical threat in Famara Diédhiou once he is eligible to play
  • Johnson reiterated movement in the loan market may still be an option and a couple of offers have been made


  • The striker says he will take confidence having scored his first goal of the season from his first league start
  • He described scoring goals as his "drug...there's no better feeling for me"
  • On his new partnership with Andreas Weimann, Taylor said the pair have linked up well and their hard work paid off on Tuesday night
