NEIL Warnock hailed QPR's defensive display after their first shut-out in 25 games in last night's 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle .
Goals from Adel Taarabt and Damion Stewart secured a second successive win for Rangers at Loftus Road.
And the new boss was delighted with their first clean sheet since the 4-0 thumping of Preston way back in October.
He said: "We knew that Plymouth would battle and fight for their lives, so it was important to be disciplined. We had to be mean.
"I thought the two centre-backs were great. Stewart was absolutely outstanding, and Kaspars Gorkks wasn't far behind him. I'm really pleased with them and the keeper.
"But you defend from the front. I thought the front three worked hard and closed them down. It's a team game, not just the back four.
"I've been told it's our first clean sheet in 25 - I'm sure it's right because it's the centre-halves that told me!"
