Rampant Rangers thrill Warnock

QPR boss Neil Warnock hailed the impact of his club's new players after the 3-0 win over Wolves at Molineux.

Warnock fielded a side featuring the five permanent signings he has made since Tony Fernandes' takeover of the London outfit last month and two of them - Joey Barton and DJ Campbell - were on target against Wolves with Shaun Wright-Phillips and Armond Traore providing assists.

"It was probably as complete a performance as you are going to get away from home," Warnock said of Saturday's game. "But we have been like that - we were like that on Monday night against Newcastle really, just without the finishing product."

He added: "To get a goal here early doors was really good and then it was followed up quickly by a great second goal.

"I thought we were unlucky not to score a few more. We really move the ball quickly and since all these new lads have come in, training has gone up 30-40% in terms of quality. You could see that today - even my old lads were spot on."

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was at a loss to explain his side's poor showing.

"We didn't get going from the first whistle," McCarthy said.

"When we put the ball forward we should have been up behind it, but we weren't and we never got near anybody.

"It is not like us and why that is, goodness knows. I can't put my finger on it because it is just not us.

"I'm not taking anything away from QPR, they played well, but they were aided and abetted by a poor performance from all of us, myself included. That was as bad as we have been."
