Shaun Derry was over the moon to finally get himself back amongst the scorers as he helped QPR achieve a brilliant victory over Liverpool last night.

All seemed lost when the Reds led 2-0 at Loftus Road until Derry headed home in the 77th minute to be the catalyst for a brave fight back which saw the home side score two more goals, through Djibril Cisse and Jamie Mackie, in the 3-2 win.

Derry, who had not scored in competition for five years, was thrilled to have hit the back of the net especially against a club such as Liverpool and at such a crucial time in QPR’s campaign.

"I'd resigned myself to never scoring another competitive goal again, so to score against such a big side like Liverpool is something to behold," he told the club’s official website.

"With it being such an important goal to kick-start the comeback as well - it was fantastic.

"It wasn't about my goal though. It was about a response from the lads.

"At 2-0 down everyone would have written us off - probably not just for last night, but for the rest of the season - so it's testament to our character in the way we got back into it.

"Hopefully last night will be a catalyst for us staying up this season."
