Cisse impact pleases R's boss
Queens Park Rangers,
Mark Hughes praised the impact of Djibril Cisse after he scored a dramatic late winner against Stoke to boost QPR's survival hopes.
In an uneventful game that seemed to be petering out into a goalless draw, Cisse came off the bench to bury an 89th-minute winner.
The French forward, 30, has scored five goals and been sent off twice in his seven Rangers appearances since his move to Loftus Road in the January transfer window, and Hughes has been happy to deal with the dismissals if the former Liverpool striker's goals help the club survive.
"I'm delighted for Djibril," he said. "Obviously it has been a little bit stop-start for him and invariably when he has played and been on the pitch he has made an impact in terms of scoring and been involved in key moments.
"We left it late. We played a little bit stop-start and it was difficult to replicate the momentum we've generated in recent weeks. You hope that something will happen and thankfully it did."
