QPR manager Ian Holloway says that Kazenga Lua Lua chose to play today despite the fact that his father passed away just yesterday.
Holloway hailed the character of his player when asked how pleased he was with his side's display, saying: "It’s about more than that, because what pleases me is the peoples’ character that we’ve got here.
"Our fans don’t know, Lua Lua lost his father yesterday and he still wanted to play.
"Now I had to trust him and it was looking pretty bleak at one time but he still wanted to do it, still wanted the ball and wanted to help him through it.
"It’s tough out there. He blamed himself for the goal but i’m telling you, thanks to our fans, because he didn’t mean to do that.
"He missed at Sheffield Wednesday, he’s a really good lad and a lovely fella, and he’s shown more than enough character."
Holloway finished up with a tribute to Lua Lua's father, saying: "I played the day my dad died, and it ain't easy, so Luey, I love you to bits mate, and he (his father) must have been one hell of a man because I've had your brother and I've had you, and i love you to bits."
