Rio Ferdinand hails QPR for showing "great character" during Saturday's 2-2 draw with Stoke City.

Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand has credited his team for showing "great character" during their 2-2 draw with Stoke City.

The R's were on the verge of losing their fourth match of the season on Saturday, but Niko Kranjcar's free kick two minutes from time earned them a share of the spoils at Loftus Road.

"We showed great character to come back into it and that's credit to the lads," Ferdinand told the club's official website. "You have to say it's a good point, even if we wanted all three.

"Every time we went behind, we got back on the front foot and put them under pressure. We showed great resilience and character to get back into the game. We have to take the positives."

QPR continue their Premier League campaign next Saturday when they make the trip to Southampton.
