“It was great to come here and win a tough game to put our­selves in the draw for the next round.

“There’s no doubt from start to fin­ish we were the bet­ter team and I don’t think any­one can deny that, not even the most diehard Queens Park Rangers fans.

“We had a good shape and apart from a cou­ple of lon­grange shots, I don’t think our goal­keeper was called upon.”

Coyle also re­served spe­cial praise for Mulgrew.

“He’s played Cham­pi­ons League year in, year out, he’s an in­ter­na­tional player and we were very for­tu­nate to get him,” he added. “He’s had a few in­juries but now that he’s play­ing, we can see his qual­ity and he showed that again.”
