QPR veteran Nelsen revels in Newcastle stoush

QPR defender Ryan Nelsen admits he 'enjoyed' their defeat at Newcastle United.

A late goal by Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi, on as a substitute, saw Harry Redknapp's side beaten 1-0 but Nelsen admitted the driving rain had made the game enjoyable to play in.

"I love those conditions," the central defender said. "I've got to admit it was fun out there for most of the match. St James' Park is one of my favourite places, especially with the rain lashing down and wind biting and the crowd is really passionate.

"Maybe I'm just old and sentimental but that's what English football is all about. Good old English football. It was like the Alamo at times. I swear I heard the horns and the cavalry coming."
