Parker 'awesome' - Kev

Kevin Bond joined the chorus of approval for Scott Parker after the midfielder's fine display in Sunday's win against QPR.

Kevin Bond joined the chorus of approval for Scott Parker after the midfielder's fine display in Sunday's win against QPR.

Described as an 'amazing performance' by Harry Redknapp, Scott covered every blade of grass in the 3-1 victory at the Lane and started the move for Gareth Bale's match-clinching third goal.

That made it six wins and a draw in our last seven matches in the Premier League.

"I thought Scott was fantastic from the first minute," said assistant boss Kevin.

"He won every tackle, set the tempo for us and set us up on the counter-attack when he won possession.

"He was awesome. His passing was brilliant. He didn’t do a thing wrong from the moment we started until he came off shattered with five minutes to go."

Kevin admitted we should have been out of sight by half-time after dominating the first half and going 2-0 up.

However, Rangers hit back at the start of the second half, pulled a goal back and were looking dangerous when Gareth curled home the third.

"We knew Neil (Warnock) would try to get a reaction, he made a couple of changes and the next goal was always going to be important – 2-1 it’s game on, 3-0 kills it," said Kevin.

"That’s what happened, a second ball from a set-piece and you are thinking ‘here we go’. Thankfully that wasn’t the case, we scored another great goal and ran out deserved winners."
