Queens Park Rangers 1-0 Stoke City – Premier League – 6th May 2012
Djibril Cissé’s (half) season with QPR has been a bizarre mixture of goals and red cards, but today against Stoke, Hoops fans saw the better side of the Frenchman, with his late strike securing an utterly vital win for the strugglers at Loftus Road.
Stoke’s Cameron Jerome had missed a glorious chance in the opening few minutes of the game. However, Rangers battled hard against Tony Pulis’ well-drilled side.
Substitute Cissé’s dramatic strike came on 89 minutes and sees the Londoners move into 16th place, two points clear of the drop-zone. Stoke stay in 14th.
