Barton, Doughty and Fer react on Twitter after QPR beat Sunderland

Queens Park Rangers picked up a huge 2-0 victory over Sunderland last night.

A trio of Queens Park Rangers players have been left delighted with the side's win over Sunderland last night. 

Joey Barton, Michael Doughty and Leroy Fer all quickly took to social media site Twitter to express their joy at a huge win for the side. 

Goals from Fer and Bobby Zamora finally ended the R's long wait for a Premier League away victory and fired them out of the relegation zone.

It suggests that life without Harry Redknapp may not be too hard for the West London side and they will be hoping to push on after finally breaking out of the bottom three. 

If they perform to the level that they did at the Stadium of Light then they have every chance of avoiding the drop, and Barton was keen to point out the efforts of the entire team to pick up the victory. 

Doughty, meanwhile, was understandably more focused on his own performance. The youngster came on to make his debut and it clearly meant a lot to him. 

The only downside of QPR's night was the injury that Fer picked up after scoring and the Dutchman was hoping that it will prove to be a minor one. 

QPR's next game comes against Hull City and it looks to be another match which will be crucial to defining whether they will stay up or not come May.
