QPR under-23s boss Paul Hall said it was hugely beneficial for his side to play in front of Ian Holloway in their 1-0 victory over Coventry City.
Holloway started the game as a spectator in the crowd, before making his way to the dugout, where he took control of the team, giving them guidance and telling them in no uncertain terms what was expected of them throughout the 90 minutes.
Speaking to GetWestLondon after the game, Hall said playing under the leadership of the first team boss will be a great experience for his squad of developing players
Talking about the game, he said: "There wasn't a great deal created from either teams.
"We normally create more than that however it was a good game for the manager to see and a good game for him to get to know the younger players a little bit more because he was in the technical area telling them exactly what he wanted from them, so it was good.
"It was a good exercise. The first team boys who came in acquitted themselves really well, defended really well at the back and the boys in midfield played their part too so it's good, and that's what this team is here for, to service the first team in any way, shape or form."
