What Marti Cifuentes said about QPR’s new signing after a 2-2 draw clash

Marti Cifuentes believes QPR’s new additions can maintain the club in the Championship after they united to earn a point at home to Norwich.

Swiss attacker Michael Frey headed in a cross from fellow newcomer Lucas Andersen to earn Rangers a 2-2 draw.

Meanwhile, loan arrivals Isaac Hayden and Joe Hodge performed in midfield, giving manager Cifuentes plenty of hope in the fight to avoid relegation.

The Spaniard stated, “I’m very glad for the new guys. I believe they are all demonstrating excellent professional skills.

“These four players are coming from situations where we will need to take into account that they will perhaps need a couple of weeks to be at their best version, but I’m happy with them.

“The assist from Lucas to Frey was brilliant. All of them are giving good performances for us.

“They need match fitness but they’ve shown fantastic performances and I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do together with the rest of the guys.

“We definitely feel like we’re stronger now than we were before.”

QPR took the lead through Jack Colback’s opener but Norwich hit back with second-half goals from Kenny McLean and Josh Sargent.

Frey’s leveller meant third-from-bottom Rangers closed the gap on Huddersfield, the team immediately above them, to two points.

“I can never be happy with just a point, but we played against a strong team that scored two quality goals,” Cifuentes said.

“We had some nice moments in both the first and second halves, and I’d want to applaud the boys’ attitude and mentality.

“Being behind at home in our current situation is not easy. But we had the mental fortitude and capacity to keep pushing, and even after Frey’s equaliser, we sought to go for the win.
