Strachan's Sweet Taste Of Success!

Last updated : 06 December 2009 By Boro Mad

Boro's 5-1 thrashing of QPR, the club's first ever win at Loftus Road, lifted them to sixth in the table.

Leroy Lita netted twice with Dave Kitson, Gary O'Neil and Mark Yeates also scoring in a resounding triumph.

Gordon Strachan: "I'm going to enjoy this victory. I saw it coming because we had played well against Peterborough and Crystal Palace.

"We created chances in those games and in this one we scored with our chances. Goals lift you and deflate the other side.

"Our target has been to get into the top six and if you can do that, you can then see if you can catch the big boys.

"I wasn't surprised at Lita's performance given the amount of energy he puts in and Isaiah Osbourne produced a real man's performance in midfield and showed everyone what a good player he is.

"QPR can count themselves a bit unfortunate because the ball went for us today and we scored at crucial times.

"But we've worked hard for that. I believe that if you work hard you will eventually get something and it's finally paid off."
