Niko Kranjcar: 'We showed character'

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Niko Kranjcar is pleased with the way his side responded to adversity to claim a point against Stoke City at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Niko Kranjcar believes that his side showed character to rally twice from behind to earn a point in their match with Stoke City.

The Potters took an early lead but were pegged back before half time by Harry Redknapp's side through Steven Caulker.

Peter Crouch headed the visitors ahead again after the break, but two minutes from time Kranjcar scored a free kick to earn his side a share of the spoils.

He told BT Sport: "We are happy with the way we reacted. Coming in to the second half I thought we had the momentum and we showed character.

"From the footballing side we have to improve but we showed spirit and that is very important."

QPR are currently 15th in the Premier League after five matches this season.
