QPR boss Mark Warburton commended his side on a well-deserved win after picking up their first-ever victory over Millwall at the New Den on Saturday.

The R’s secured their third win in a row courtesy of a Nakhi Wells brace to move up into the Championship play-off places.

It was a second double in two games for Wells, who capitalised on Millwall goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski's error to secure a 2-1 win for his side.

“There were loads of big performances at a tough place to come to. To come to Millwall and get three points says a lot about the character of the boys,” said Warburton

“Goals change games and we knew the threat Millwall would pose to use. However, we came out in the second half and got the first goal. We didn’t stop the crosses, but we defended them really well.

The positive attacking display was made all the more impressive by the fact that prior to Wells’ brace, Millwall had only conceded once at home all season.

Rangers’ strike force appears to be firing on all cylinders as Wells notches his tally up to 6 so far this campaign.

With a tough game against play-off rivals West Brom around the corner, Warburton will need the contributions of Wells to ensure their run of good form continues.

“Nakhi’s scoring, Jordan Hugill’s scoring. We had young Jan Mlakar to come on and we have goals in the team through Ebere Eze and Ilias Chair as well. You need goals from all over the pitch and thankfully we have that right now,” added the QPR boss.

“We’re creating chances. A reporter said to me after the game that we’ve had no clean sheets yet, but I don’t mind if we keep scoring more goals than our opponents!”

Rangers have conceded 12 goals so far in the Championship this season but even so, Warburton clearly isn’t too concerned at this point in the season.

"You earn your luck. We've given soft goals away ourselves in recent games, and that's the nature of the league, you hope over the course of a season they even themselves up,” added Warburton.

“The boys are starting to understand that they can be a really good team. If we drop off and we’re loose, we’re not as good. But if we’re on the front foot, playing our football, then we’re dangerous. Hopefully we can continue that.”
