QPR Under-21s boss hails winger after victory at Crystal Palace

QPR Under-21 manager Steve Gallen hailed winger Bruno Andrade after his side’s 2-1 win against 10-man Crystal Palace.

The 20-year-old put in a man of the match performance as an own goal from Alistair Gordon and Jordan Gibbons’ late strike secured all three points for Rangers.

And Gallen thought it was the quality of Andrade that was the difference between the teams.

“Bruno was our best player. He has been really bright in training,” said Gallen. “He was the one player that was a threat, constantly looking to run in behind.

“He took players on, he played on the shoulder and he got crosses in. I think he made more crosses than any other player on the pitch.

“I can imagine if you were sitting up in the stands today, he would be the player you would all be talking about. He was exciting to watch.”

Gus Sow saw red for the Eagles midway through the first half after two quick yellow cards for challenges on Gibbons.
