06:50 19 November 2012
QPR were poor for the most part of their 3-1 defeat to Southampton but Jason Puncheon believes the deserve credit for their performance.
The result helps alleviate the pressure mounting on manager Nigel Adkins, whose future has come under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks but ramps it up on R’s boss Mark Hughes.
“You can sit there and say it’s easy, but we were on the top of our game on every yard of the pitch,” he said.
“The two midfielders covered every blade of grass on the pitch, Gaston [Ramirez] and Rickie both put in a lot of work as did the full-backs, centre-halves and goalkeeper.
“That counts, that’s what it’s all about and that’s what we did.”
